Browns notes from Hue Jackson Verfasst am: Beitrag 08:50 Di - Jan 08, 2019

Authentic Derrick Kindred Jersey , John Dorsey pre-camp presser With training camp set to officially open on Thursday, Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson and general manager John Dorsey were live in Berea on Wednesday, answering any and all questions the media had heading into this year’s sessions. With Jackson humorously dressed in sweatshirt-Dorsey attire, let’s recap some of the big takeaways from press conference.WR Situation - Looking at Dez Bryant, Josh Gordon’s StatusThe Browns will be down another wide receiver at the start of camp, as WR Ricardo Louis is out for the season with a neck injury. Cleveland is also using the “Did Not Report” label on WR Josh Gordon to help open a second roster spot (at least temporarily).Dorsey wants to respect Gordon’s privacy and the team supports him through this time. He does not have clarity as to when Gordon will be back, other than they expect him to be back at some point for the 2018 season. They feel he is 100% committed to the Browns and they are 100% committed to him as well.Hue Jackson has not had the chance to speak with Gordon since the news. Dorsey was asked if he knows what Gordon’s statement meant when he said he would be back “soon.” Cleveland has talked with Dez Bryant, and they will think about the receiver position in the coming days. However, he also cautioned not to read too much into that specifically, since they have talked to a lot of players. While Gordon is out, Corey Coleman will slide into the starting lineup to begin training camp.WR Eli Rogers has re-signed with the Steelers. Cleveland will be working out some receivers in the coming days.Staying Confident in QB Tyrod TaylorDespite the praise both Jackson and Dorsey had for rookie QB Baker Mayfield, both were clear that this is Tyrod Taylor’s team.Jackson did not want to discuss whether Mayfield will be the No. 2 or No. 3 quarterback to begin camp; instead, he just kept stressing that Mayfield will get the amount of reps he needs. Here is what Jackson said about Taylor being the No. 1 quarterback in camp:Hue Jackson’s Different Role in 2018 as Head CoachEven though Hue Jackson is still the head coach, now entering year three with the Browns, his role has very much changed into this year’s camp. He now compares himself to a CEO who is overseeing the operation. In my opinion, this was 100% necessary and the only way to justify keeping Jackson for a third season — to see if he could thrive in such a role.Other NotesShon Coleman will be the first player to get a shot at left tackle.Jamie Collins, Mychal Kendricks, and Antonio Callaway are ready to go for camp.Asked why the secondary was revamped so much Youth Joel Bitonio Jersey , Dorsey said, “After you sit and listen to the head coach talk about what he thinks we need, and then you talk to the defensive coordinator and see what he thinks he needs at that time – it was obvious that we needed some players here and that is why we went down the path we did.”Ricardo Louis’ neck injury happened late last season and required surgery.Cleveland Browns Training Camp 2018: WR Preview, Part 2 In Part 2 of our training camp preview on the Cleveland Browns’ wide receivers, we look at players with some experience but are most definitely on the bubble.Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports5. Ricardo Louis - Backup Wide ReceiverHeight: 6-2 | Weight: 215 lbs | Age: 24Experience: 3 years | College: AuburnThe hype train was heavy for Ricardo Louis heading into last year’s training camp after he had worked with Brandon Marshall in the offseason. With Josh Gordon set to be out for awhile and Kenny Britt being a massive disappointment, Louis got the best opportunity he could’ve asked for to showcase his talent. It wasn’t enough.Louis started 9 games last year and finished the season with 27 catches for 357 yards. Once Gordon returned from suspension, Louis was completely phased out of the offense for those final five weeks, collecting just 1 catch for 35 yards. Embarrassingly, Louis finished the 2017 season as the Browns’ leading wide receiver.Louis has good speed, but has not been able to overcome his propensity for dropping passes. He was among the league leaders in dropped passes last year, including this one:I don’t think Louis makes the final cut. He was one of the Browns’ special teams gunners last year, and that is his best chance at making the team. But the club added Jeff Janis from the Packers this offseason, and he has experience doing the same thing.Final Roster Odds: 25%Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports6. Rashard Higgins - Backup Slot ReceiverHeight: 6-1 | Weight: 198 lbs | Age: 23Experience: 3 years | College: Colorado StateAfter spending all of training camp working with Duke Johnson as the team’s slot receiver in 2017, and then playing him there in Week 1, the team abandon that strategy in Week 2. They re-signed Rashard Higgins, who was originally cut, and made him the slot receiver against the Ravens, where he blew up for 7 catches for 95 yards on 11 targets. Almost the entire rest of the season http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-emmanuel-ogbah-jersey , he would get 1-2 catches per week for about 15 yards. Then in Week 17, he blew up again with 3 catches for 68 yards and the first 2 touchdowns of his NFL career.I like Higgins. I think he can be an average slot receiver in the NFL, as he has shown good hands more times than not. Unfortunately, he faces a situation in which Jarvis Landry will have that role clamped down, and I just don’t think he is skilled enough to make an impact as an outside receiver. Higgins should stick around in camp in case something happens to Landry, but I don’t think he will make the final roster either.On the fun side, he did have an amusing “where yall at...?” comment back in March in response to an Instagram post by Jarvis Landry working with some of the Browns’ receivers.Final Roster Odds: 40%Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports7. Jeff Janis - Veteran Backup ReceiverHeight: 6-3 | Weight: 219 lbs | Age: 27Experience: 5 years | College: Saginaw Valley StateJeff Janis was a 7th round pick by the Green Bay Packers in 2014. He has played in 51 games over the past four seasons, but only has 17 catches for 200 yards and 1 touchdown. The area he has made an impact has been on special teams, where he has 22 career tackles and has returned 23 kickoffs for 568 yards (24.7 yards per return).Janis is most known for his postseason heroics a couple of seasons ago, when he caught 7 catches for 145 yards and 2 touchdowns, including 2 bombs from Aaron Rodgers to create of the more amazing playoff Hail Mary’s you’ll see. There are many Packers fans who believe the team should have utilized Janis a lot more during his time in Green Bay. I think his stock will rise in the early parts of training camp.Final Roster Odds: 80%Photo by Rob Carr/Getty Images8. C.J. Board - Backup ReceiverHeight: 6-1 | Weight: 181 lbs | Age: 24Experience: 1 year | College: Tennessee-ChattanoogaC.J. Board was originally an undrafted free agent signed by the Baltimore Ravens during training camp in 2017. During the preseason for Baltimore, Board caught 2 passes for 56 yards. He also spent some time on the Tennessee Titans’ practice squad last year, and then Cleveland signed him to their practice squad heading into the final week of the regular season.Last year, Board said he knew he wasn’t going to be drafted, but teams’ interest in him turned up because he ran a 4.38 40-yard dash during his Pro Day. Baltimore reportedly liked his speed as an outside receiving option and also believed he could compete for a spot on special teams. I don’t expect him to stand out during training camp, but he got included at the end of Part 2 of our preview because in Part 3, there are four rookie players to look at.Final Roster Odds: <5% Antworten mit Zitat
