Cleveland Browns Training Camp Recap: Day 3 - Todd Haley Yells The pads were cracking on Saturday for Day 3 of Cleveland Browns training camp. Our full practice report summary is below.Cleveland Browns Training Camp Report - Day 3 (7/28/18)1. Now the Crackalackin’ Starts: Saturday was the first day of Browns training camp that saw the players put the pads on. HBO’s Hard Knocks gave a teaser of what head coach Hue Jackson said before practice started about it: “So now we get on some pads Cleveland Browns Christian Kirksey Jersey
, huh? Woo! Now the crackalackin’ starts.” It didn’t take long for that term to become widely used among the reporters in attendance.LB Christian Kirksey once again led the team huddle to kick off practice, telling his peers to “be smart, but go hard — learn how to practice like pros.”2. Drill of the Day: We’re always good for seeing DE Myles Garrett leaping through the air to tackle a dummy, right? Also, it’s out excuse for mentioning Garrett’s name for the first time this camp.That’s not all the defensive line did, as they went at the sleds hard too.3. Return Groups: Before practice started, WR Antonio Callaway and WR Evan Berry were fielding punts as SS Jabrill Peppers watched alongside them. WR Corey Coleman and CB Terrance Mitchell also got some work in that area.After practice started, the players getting punt return reps were Callaway, WR Jarvis Landry, WR Da’Mari Scott and WR C.J. Board.4. SIREN PERIOD! Head coach Hue Jackson was asked yesterday if the pads going on meant that the siren period (i.e. live tackling) would also make its debut on Saturday. He was coy about it, but sure enough, an hour into Day 3 of practice, the sirens went off — and that meant it was time to get serious. Unfortunately, video of this period typically isn’t available due to media restrictions.5. Corey Coleman’s Ups and Downs: One of the players who has kind of had the spotlight on them in camp Womens Christian Kirksey 2019 Jersey
, both for good and bad reasons, is WR Corey Coleman. That continued on Day 3 of camp. On the plus side, Coleman reportedly had a “sensational diving catch” against CB T.J. Carrie in 1-on-1 drills. Carrie made up for it the next time the two squared off, batting a ball away with tight coverage.Coleman made a good grab on a slant pass from QB Tyrod Taylor. But he caught the wrath of offensive coordinator Todd Haley, who showed that defensive coordinator Gregg Williams isn’t the only one who curses in camp. Jordan Zirm of ESPN said that Haley chastised Coleman for night fighting through a hold by CB T.J. Carrie to try to make a play on a deep ball.6. Alignment to Watch: According to Jake Burns of The OBR, one of the interesting alignments that Cleveland showed up front had DT Trevon Coley and DE Emmanual Ogbah, with DE Myles Garrett and ILB Genard Avery in 2 point stances on the outside.In general, Burns also reports that the first-team defensive tackles have been Trevon Coley and Jamie Meder, and the second-team defensive tackles are Larry Ogunjobi and Caleb Brantley. Brantley made it through practice today not having to leave with cramps. Speaking of Ogunjobi, here he is making a nice play stuffing RB Nick Chubb on a tackle:7. Bernie Makes an Appearance: If you love seeing QB Bernie Kosar, then Saturday was your chance to see him up close. You can see him below standing alongside owner Dee Haslam.8. Overall QB Impressions: From reading camp reports, the overall impressions of the quarterbacks today were that both players look solid in general, but that Saturday wasn’t QB Tyrod Taylor’s day. QB Baker Mayfield was more on target. Both players got more reps since veteran QB Drew Stanton had the day off. Stanton did explain that the RV was his idea and that they got Mayfield to purchase it.9. Brownies: With OT Greg Robinson sidelined with a concussion, rookie OL Austin Corbett worked with the second-team offense at left tackle. ... Per Jake Burns of The OBR Cheap Christian Kirksey Youth Jersey
, WR Jeff Janis is “as advertised as a ‘gunner’ on punt team and can flat out fly.” ... OLB Jamie Collins took part in team drills for the first time, while LB Mychal Kendricks got a day of rest. ... If you are looking to see a scrimmage practice, head coach Hue Jackson said the Browns will “scrimmage” in Berea on Friday. ... Even Jackson is getting friendly with the fans this camp, taking photos with a couple of fans who were calling out to him after practice.10. Next Up: Practice continues Sunday in Berea, from 3:00 PM to 5:55 PM. CLEVELAND (AP) — From disorganized and dysfunctional to disciplined — and according to rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield, dangerous.The Cleveland Browns are looking a lot better these days.Not great, but improved. Greatly improved.Two weeks after coach Hue Jackson’s long overdue firing, the Browns showed a glimpse of a brighter future with their best all-around game in several seasons, a convincing 28-16 victory on Sunday over the Atlanta Falcons.Taking their cues from Mayfield and interim coach Gregg Williams, whose odds of becoming Cleveland’s next full-time coach may not be as ridiculous as they once seemed, the Browns (3-6-1) took apart a team with playoff hopes.Cleveland was balanced on offense, sound defensively and the Browns’ special teams avoided the kind of fatal mistakes that led to so many tough losses earlier this season.“We just finally put four quarters of football together,” said safety Damarious Randall. “Just to see us put it together now shows where this team is pointing and the direction we are going. We are going to keep on building on that and keep fighting.”Mayfield’s leading the charge.Matched up against one of the NFL’s best in Matt Ryan, Mayfield was nearly perfect while outplaying his more celebrated quarterbacking counterpart. Mayfield completed his first 13 passes Orange Emmanuel Ogbah Jersey
, finished 17 of 20 for 217 yards and threw three touchdown passes as the Browns posted their largest win since Dec. 13, 2015 — a span of 44 games.When it ended, with the rare sight of Cleveland fans actually still in their seats cheering and not heading toward the exits, Mayfield met Ryan and shared a hug with Atlanta’s star at midfield before filming a promotional selfie video for the team’s website and then sprinting off like a 10-year-old and leaping and bumping with Randall in the end zone.Moments later, Mayfield playfully told reporters he woke up feeling “pretty dangerous.” He’s been scary over the past four weeks, throwing nine TD passes with just two interceptions and making better decisions.It was Mayfield’s second game with offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens, the team’s running backs coach thrust into the coordinator’s role when Todd Haley was fired after Jackson on Oct. 29. Kitchens has catered Cleveland’s offense to suit Mayfield’s strengths, and his quicker throws have been effective in moving the ball and keeping him safe.For the first time this season, the Browns did not give up a sack.Williams said the Mayfield-Kitchens pairing will only get better.“Both of their styles and both of their personalities, they respect each other,” Williams said. “They both understand each other. When that respect is well enough, maybe they might even like each other later on, but there has to be a respect of those and us together with coaches and players that we both are on the same page and we know what we are doing for things to grow. I think Freddie and Baker are doing a great job with that.”Williams, too Emmanuel Ogbah Jerseys 2019
, should take a bow. In no time, he’s made the Browns better.Sometimes brash and boastful, Williams has toned down his public personality while providing strong, needed leadership to a team that had tuned out Jackson after two losing seasons. The Browns are responding to the 60-year-old Williams, who coached Buffalo from 2001-03 and worked his way back up the ranks after he was suspended by the league in 2012.Williams laughed hard when asked if the past two weeks have reminded an “old timer” he still had what it takes to be a head coach.“I never thought it left,” he said.But as far as his future in Cleveland, Williams insists he’s not campaigning for the job. At this point, the Browns’ play is doing the lobbying for him.When pressed about whether he would like to be the next coach of the Browns, Williams showed a politician’s elusiveness.“You know what?” he said on a conference call as the Browns began their bye week. “I like being employed. I enjoy the head coaching part of it. I enjoy all these parts of it, but understand the big part of what we are doing is we get the players the focus, get me to focus on one day at a time and we have to keep on moving on in the right direction.”NOTES: Williams only planned to give his players Tuesday off, but “threw them a bone” following the win and gave them Monday as well. The players are free this week with the exception of medical treatments and phone meetings. … Williams said LT Greg Robinson “played well” in his second start, but that doesn’t mean he’ll stay in the lineup following the bye. Rookie Desmond Harrison started Cleveland’s first eight games before being sidelined with an unspecified illness.
