Sunday’s camp practice was kind of boring. I’ve been to enough of these now that I think I can get a sense of when the intensity is at a pitch and when it’s not. Maybe Day 1 was something of an energy dump, like a fighter who punches himself out in the first round and day two was a bit more relaxed, but the intensity just wasn’t totally there. It’s early though, so I...

As Browns open mini-camp, which position group improved most this offseason?

I was asked by a friend the other day which position the Browns improved the most in the offseason.
