AVON -- Amidst all the offseason chatter and wondering about the Cleveland Browns, one player quietly goes about his business, with a very simple goal.I think, said guard Jason Pinkston, that I can be a ton better.Hes not just talking about it, either. Pinkston is spending his offseason in Cleveland training at the O-Line Academy run by former Brown (briefly), Saint and Ohio State Buckeye LeCharles Bentley.I like to say that there can be no way that theres other offensive linemen going through workouts that hes putting me through, Pinkston said. These workouts are something serious I went through the first week. I was like, This is what I really need. I woke up and I could feel every part of my body aching.At this point of the offseason, Pinkston is not required to do a thing. The new CBA strictly limits what teams can ask of players.
