Mychal Kendr Ty Montgomery Jersey icks signing underscores Browns’ ongoing roster fortification

Kendricks is the latest notable veteran added to Cleveland’s improved squad

The Browns’ linebackers, at least on paper, would appear to be one of the team’s strongest position groups. Cleveland returns a trio of starters that includes two Pro Bowlers (Jamie Collins and Joe Schobert) and a captain (Christian Kirksey) who’s been one of the league’s most productive players. 

So it might have come as a surprise when the Browns earlier this week signed former Eagles standout Mychal Kendricks, a multi-year starter who helped Philadelphia win a Super Bowl last season.

It shouldn’t have been.

“It’s called competition, right? That’s what it is. It’s competition,” head coach Hue Jackson said Tuesday. “I think that our players get it. Our job is to put the best football players on the team and then let that take care of itself. There’s nothing wrong with that. I think that our guys welcome that. I don’t think that anybody is upset because we put better football players on the team.”

Kendricks’ addition to a talented linebackers room underscores Cleveland’s resolve to improve ev Randall Cobb Jersey ery facet of the team in every possible way following a winless season. From linebacker to quarterback, the Browns have taken steps to improve their roster under first-year general manager John Dorsey.

That march started at the beginning of  Randall Cobb Jersey Cheap the new league year, when Cleveland’s front office executed trades for former Bills starting quarterback and Pro Bowler Tyrod Taylor, three-time Pro Bowl receiver Jarvis Landry and former Packers defensive back Damarious Randall, one of the league’s up-and-coming defenders.  

Kendricks is the latest in a long line of players added to the roster since then, a group that includes players who started for their previous teams, such as running back Carlos Hyde and cornerbacks T.J. Carrie and E.J. Gaines and top-flight rookies in quarterback Baker Mayfield and cornerback Denzel Ward (the No. 1 and No. 4 NFL Draft picks, respectively). 

Because of that, Kirksey — who has 286 tackles over the past two seasons — was more or less unfazed by the decision to add another player to his room. “As a competitor, we’re competing our whole lives. That is something that separates us from everybody else – our competitive attitude. I think that it’s going to be fun,” he said.

“He’s obviously proven himself in the league. He’s won a Super Bowl. There are a lot of things that he can teach us. We have a lot of young guys in the room so adding a veteran player is a lot of wisdom, a lot of knowledge. I’m looking forward to it. I’m a competitor. I’ve been here my whole career. I’ve been competing my whole life. I think that those guys enjoy it the same way. At the end of the day, our main focus is winning.”

That, of course, is the point in all of this for a Cleveland team that has won one game in two years.

Jackson, ente Ty Montgomery Jersey For Sale ring his third season with the team, believes training camp later this summer will be the most competitive in that span.

“I wouldn’t expect nothing less,” he said. “We’re going to have some really tough decisions as we go because there are a lot of good football players on this team. That’s the way that it should be. I think we have improved every position group on this team. I think we’ll have some tough decisions, and I don’t think you’d want it any other way.”

Browns Mailb Ty Montgomery Jersey ag: What’s the pecking order going to look like at wide receiver?

Senior Writer Andrew Gribble answers your questions every week

We picked six — six! — of your questions for this week’s edition of the Browns Mailbag.

People are saying Antonio Callaway will push Corey Coleman to make the team. Isn’t it more that Callaway is here to replace Josh Gordon in 2019? — Mack M., Monmouth, Oregon

The long game is always in the mind of a general manager when he plots his course through an NFL Draft. A franchise might not get the pieces in place it needs if it only drafts with its eyes on the upcoming season. But with that said, I think you’r Randall Cobb Jersey e overthinking this situation just a bit. Callaway was drafted because the Browns saw immense value in him with a fourth-round pick, believing he would have been one of the top wide receivers in the class if not for off-field concerns. In the short-term, he can push for playing time in a wide receiving corps that appears to be more talented and deeper than it’s been in years.

In the OTAs open to reporters, Cleveland has often lined up three-wide with the trio of Jarvis Landry, Gordon and Coleman. Callaway has been sidelined with a groin injury. Browns coach Hue Jackson has liked what he’s seen from Coleman, whose first two NFL seasons have been marred by injuries and inconsistency. If Cleveland gets a boost from him, it will have a variety of weapons to utilize in a new-look passing game.

“I think the biggest thing for Corey is that he has been out here every day. He has been dependable. He has been dependable and accountable. He is working at it each and every day,” Jackson said. “For Corey, this is Year 3, and I think that he wants to take the next step in his development. He is working. He is getting to know the quarterbacks, all of them, as well as he can. I think that is all you can do at this point. I think that the real test will be once we go to training camp and really get into the season. He has to continue to get better and work at his craft, and I think that he will do that.”

When will Baker Mayfield and Denzel Ward sign their rookie contracts? Are there any holdouts as to why it’s taking so long to negotiate? — Karen K., Union City, Pennsylvania

A little more than a month has passed since the 2018 NFL Draft. That’s not a lot of time.

The Browns have signed seven of their nine draft picks, the most recent being second-round running back Nick Chubb. As of Thursday, half of the league’s first-round picks had signed with their respective teams. That group did not include any of the top five picks, as Colts offensive lineman Quenton Nelson (No. 6) and Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen (10) were the only top-10 selections to ink their respective deals. The league’s collective bargaining agreement gives little wiggle room on these rookie contracts, making the memorable holdouts we remember from recent decades largely a thing of the past. Give it time. There’s no sense in predicting a specific date for either contract to be signed because these things — from our end — just sort of pop up.

With the acquisition of Damarious Randall, Jabrill Peppers‘ role on defense will obviously be changing to something I assume he is much more comfortable with. Is there a chance this will open him up to some reps on offense? That was something that set him apart in college and it would be nice to see the Browns try to utilize his skills in that respect. — Harris B., Cleveland

We haven’t seen any evidence of that yet, and the influx of new weapons on offense might make that even trickier, but it’s impossible to rule anything out at this point of the offseason. Peppers, for what it’s worth, has a lot on his plate entering his second season. After a year manning the free safety position in Gregg Williams’ defense, Peppers is taking snaps at strong safety, perhaps a more natural fit for the former college linebacker. He also figures to have a role on special teams, where he served as a punt and kick returner last year.

“We are exploring different things and we have a lot of guys who can play a lot of different things on defense,” Peppers said. “We are going to give everyone their best advantage, what they do best in their skillset and put 11 guys on the field who are going to be tenacious and go get it.”

Do we have enough beef at nose tackle or will we pick someone up in free agency? — Ricky P., Dayton

The Browns have a handful of young and promising players at defensive tackle, a group that features three second-year players — Larry Ogunjobi, Caleb Brantley and Trevon Coley — and veteran Jamie Meder. An important thing to remember is the multiple looks Cleveland presents up front. Sometimes you’ll see Myles Garrett lined up in the middle. Sometimes it could be Carl Nassib and, perhaps more often than not this upcoming season, it could be Chris Smith. The former Bengal, who signed with the Browns on the first day of free agency, is listed as a defensive end but spends plenty of time positioned in the middle of the line.

What are the Browns’ plans for Jeff Janis? — Ken S., St. Petersburg, Florida

Janis, who is entering his fifth NFL season after spending the previous four with the Packers, has made his biggest mark, thus far, on special teams. He was incredibly valuable in that area for Green Bay and is expected to do the same in Cleveland. He can also help the Browns at wide receiver, of course, and is expected to provide valuable depth at a position that experienced plenty of injuries last season.

I believe Nick Chubb could lead the league in total rushing yards if the Browns let him loose. Is my prediction way off base? — Rick J., Melbourne, Australia

I wouldn’t call it off base — Chubb is incredibly talented and running back continues to be a position dominate Ty Montgomery Jersey For Sale d by young players around the NFL — but it might be tough for Chubb to accomplish simply because of what the Browns have around him at running back. Veteran Carlos Hyde is coming off one of his most productive NFL seasons and Duke Johnson Jr., who signed a contract extension Friday, clearly figures to have a large role in the Browns offense. Chubb is going to make some plays and get the ball in his hands as a rookie. He very well could be the team’s leading rusher. It’s just going to be as a member of a deep running back group that looks like it will do a good job of spreading the wealth.

Browns and RB Duke Johnson Ty Montgomery Jersey Jr. agree to contract extension

4th-year playmaker provides big impact in run game, passing game

The Cleveland Browns and RB Duke Johnson Jr. have agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension. Johnson was selected by the Browns in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Johnson is 5-9, 210-pounds and is entering his fourth NFL season out of the University of Miami. Last year, Johnson led the Browns in receptions (74) and receiving yards (693), while totaling seven touchdowns (four rushing, three receiving). His 74 receptions and 693 receiving yards each marked most by a Browns RB in a season. He added 348 rushing yards for a total of 1,041 scrimmage yards, while playing in all 16 games. He joined Herschel Walker (1986-88) as only NFL RBs to record 500 receiving yards in each of their first three seasons. Johnson is the only NFL running back with at least 50 c Men’s Nike Green Bay Packers Ty Montgomery Elite Team Color Jersey Cheap atches in each of the past three seasons. Among NFL RBs since 2015, he ranks first in scrimmage yards per touch (6.3), receiving yards (1,741) and receptions (188). He finished his collegiate career as Miami’s all-time leading rusher.

Quote from John Dorsey:

“Duke Johnson is a good football player. His hard work and commitment to the Browns organization is appreciated and we are excited to extend his contract and keep him in a Browns uniform for years to come. Duke is an excellent representative our organization. He leads by example and we look forward to him playing an important role with the Cleveland Browns moving forward.”

Quote from Duke Johnson:

“I’m excit Ty Montgomery Jersey For Sale ed. It’s fun to see how this team is shaping out and I want to be a part of it. You can see it with the guys they brought in on offense like Tyrod (Taylor) and (Jarvis) Landry plus the guys we already had. I think bringing in coach (Todd) Haley adds another dimension to our offense and it gives coach (Hue) Jackson the chance to be the head coach. John Dorsey has been bringing in guys that can play, that can ball, and that gives us a chance. Now it’s about going out and doing it now.”

Why Denzel Ward earned first-team reps with Browns defen Ty Montgomery Jersey se

Ward was the fourth overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft

Last week, Browns coach Hue Jackson said rookie cornerback Denzel Ward appeared unfazed by the big stage of playing in the NFL.

In Tuesday’s practice, the former Ohio State star earned reps with the first-team defense after showing out the week before. It all underscored what’s b Ty Montgomery Jersey een an impressive showing for Ward, the fourth overall pick in the draft, as organized team activities draw to a close.

“He’s earning it. He is working at it,” Jackson said. “He’s doing good things. He plays a position that we think we have been needing a guy to step up.”

Indeed, the Browns tabbed Ward to be a lockdown cornerback in a defense that’s been without one for some time. Ward, who grew up down the road in Macedonia, was an All-American with the Buckeyes last season, making two interceptions and 15 pass breakups.

While there’s generally a learning curve for rookies, Ward has flashed in OTAs as being a player who can help a defensive secondary that finished second-to-last in interceptions a year ago. Along the way, he’s impressed both Jackson and his teammates.

“(He’s a) very savvy rookie, very savvy. Very confident,” said cornerback T.J. Carrie, the former Raiders starter who signed with Cleveland in free agency.  “I think that when you come into this league, confidence is probably one of your best friends in the sense that you’re playing with grown men.”

“He’s a hell of a player. You know he went to ‘that school,’” added second-year safety and former Michigan star Jabrill Peppers. “He’s tenacious, great feet, great hips, plays man-to-man, come up and lay the boom and he’s a bal Randall Cobb Jersey Cheap l hawk, as well. Whether that’s punching the ball out or grabbing interceptions, we can use guys like that, for sure.”

Ward, of course, has room to improve. Tasked with matching up with some of the league’s best receivers next season — Antonio Brown, Julio Jones, A.J. Green to name a few — there’s no time to rest now. 

With minicamp — the last chapter in offseason workouts — set for next week, Jackson expects Ward to keep growing and learning.

“He needs to continue to do that to continue to be out there,” he said, “but we know that he’s very talented. That’s why we drafted him. He’s displayed that since he has been here.”

Browns staff members, players come together for 2nd-an Ty Montgomery Jersey nual Browns Give Back Summer Blitz

‘The entire day was about the Browns Give Back platform’

It took a true team effort between Browns players and members throughout the front office to creat Randall Cobb Jersey e a memorable day for athletes from the Adapted Football League.

As part of the team’s annual Browns Give Back Summer Volunteer Blitz, staff members embarked on a project Tuesday as part of the team’s year-round efforts to positively impact Northeast Ohio. “The entire day was about the Browns Give Back platform,” said Jenner Tekancic, vice president of community relations.

It started with more than 100 volunteers, who built 100 bicycles for Cleveland Metropolitan School District students as part of the district’s ‘Get 2 School. You Can Make It!’ campaign; 125 rocking chairs to encourage school attendance and reading; and 120 yard signs painted with names to encourage the athletes participating in the Browns’ Adapted Football League program this summer.

Bringing the day full circle, the team’s rookie class — including top picks quarterback Baker Mayfield and cornerback Denzel Ward — hosted a s Ty Montgomery Jersey ession inside the team’s fieldhouse and passed out the signs made earlier that morning by employees.

“It means a lot, especially for us to get outside of football and focus on somebody else besides ourselves,” said Ward, who grew up in nearby Macedonia. “It’s just good seeing smiles on their faces.”

Established in 2011, the Adapted Football League, proudly supported by Browns Give Back, provides children with disabilities the opportunity to participate in an organized, competitive and developmental sport. It’s the first competitive adapted football program in Ohio that enables school-aged children and young adults with physical and/or cognitive disabilities the opportunity to develop the skills necessary to play football competitively.

Of course, the Adapted Football League was just one of several initiatives spotlighted during Tuesday’s event as the Browns continue to leave their mark throughout the Greater Cleveland area. In all, 136 staff members and players gave roughly 436 hours of service.

“We had over 100 volunteers step away from their desks, away from their offices and into a transformed parking lot to make rocking chairs, bicycles and several other things powered by Browns Give Back platforms,” Tekancic said. “It really shows the Browns staff is committed to giving back, especially in Northeast Ohio.”

5 things we learned from 3 weeks of Brow Ty Montgomery Jersey ns OTAs

Cleveland is set for minica Ty Montgomery Jersey mp next week

The Browns have two more OTAs on the docket before they head into a three-day, mandatory veteran minicamp.

Their time in front of the cameras after practice, for now, is over until Tuesday. It gives us the perfect opportunity to reflect on what we saw and what we might expect to see throughout the upcoming months leading into the 2018 season.

Here are the five biggest takeaways from three weeks of OTAs.

1. Tyrod Taylor’s impact as QB1 nothing but positive

Taylor came to Cleveland in March well-touted for his leadership skills and he’s made a quick impression on the Browns’ new-look roster, which still skews a little young even after an offseason of adding veterans to most position groups. 

The stability Taylor has brought to the Browns’ offense, which has dealt with a quarterback competition on a nearly annual basis at OTAs since the franchise returned in 1999, has been equally impactful.

“It’s big, especially when he has a good rapport with the OC,” fifth-year offensive guard Joel Bitonio said. “A lot of times you put in the playbook, it changes … the way calls are made, the way protections are called. You have to have good knowledge of the offense. If you have a quarterback when you say Day 1, ‘this is our guy, this is who we’re rolling with,’ he has the nine weeks of offseason workouts, all of camp, preseason to get the offense down pat.

“I think Tyrod is the right guy for the job.” 

2. Training camp competition will be fierce at multiple positions

Tuesday’s arrival of veteran linebacker Mychal Kendricks was symbolic of Cleveland’s offseason as a whole.

The Browns appeared — on the surface, at least — set at the linebacker position with the return of all three starters from 2017 — Joe Schobert, Christian Kirksey and Jamie Collins Sr. They added a promising player in the draft and also returned James Burgess Jr., who filled in admirably when Collins went down with a season-ending injury. Still, Cleveland saw an opportunity to add a quality player who fit perfectly within its scheme.

“I think that if you are a good football player and you can make plays for us, (defensive coordinator) Gregg (Williams) is going to find a way to get you onto the field,” Jackson said. “It is a go Randall Cobb Jersey od problem to have … Kudos to (general manager) John Dorsey and his group for continuing to add good players to our football team.”

That mindset has made 53-man roster projections a little trickier than in years’ past.

“We are going to have some really tough decisions as we go because there are a lot of good football players on this team. That is the way that it should be,” Jackson said. “I think we have improved every position group on this team. I think we will have some tough decisions, and I do not think you would want it any other way.”

3. Rookies will have to earn their way onto field

Much like Myles Garrett in 2017, Denzel Ward learned nothing would be handed to him throughout the first two weeks of OTAs. The No. 4 pick in the draft worked mostly with the second- and third-team defense during sessions open to reporters.

On Tuesday, Ward was with the first team, a promotion, Jackson said, that was earned by Ward, who has quickly adapted to the NFL’s speed and complexity. It’s about the same time of year Garrett, the No. 1 pick last year, worked his way up to the first group.

The rest of Cleveland’s rookies will have to show similar mettle to earn starting status or prime playing time over the course of the next couple of months. The aforementioned roster shakeup will make it even more of a challenge for the nine-man class, which is joining a deeper team than the rookie classes of recent years.

4. Expect plenty of mixing and matching in the secondary

Outside of the quarterback room, no position group on the Browns’ roster underwent a bigger makeover than the secondary, particularly at cornerback. Briean Boddy-Calhoun is essentially the lone holdover from last year’s group after the team added Damarious Randall — a cornerback in Green Bay who will play free safety for the Browns — three veteran cornerbacks in free agency — T.J. Carrie, Terrance Mitchell and E.J. Gaines — and Ward in the draft.

It’s allowed Williams to experiment a lot with the players, mixing and matching them with various units and playing them in differ Men’s Nike Green Bay Packers Ty Montgomery Elite Team Color Jersey Cheap ent spots. Boddy-Calhoun has been seen at safety and cornerback while Carrie and Gaines both have experience playing on the inside and outside.

“Today’s game is all about having three No. 1 corners,” Carrie said. “So many years ago it was about having two. Now with offenses being able to spread the field out with so many different receivers, you have to have at least three corners.”

5. Too early to tell on UDFA impact

The Browns’ roster has 17 undrafted free agents but it remains to be seen if there are any diamond-in-the-rough candidates. Typically, no matter the depth of the roster, one or two will latch onto the 53-man roster and provide an unexpected impact.

Jackson was reluctant to highlight any players from the group when prompted last week.

“I would hate to put a name out there to put one out there,” Jackson said. “Let’s just get these guys to training camp, and I think we will really get to see more of them. In that setting, they will get more reps because of the pads being on.” 

Of note, Desmond Harrison is competing with Shon Coleman and second-round pick Austin Corbett at left tackle. Micah Hannemann and Elijah Campbell are getting repetitions at safety. Evan Berry was a dynamite kickoff returner at Tennessee and could become valuable based on how the play has changed after recent rule adjustments.

A healthy Emmanuel Ogbah hopes to b Ty Montgomery Jersey uild on promising season

Ogbah was on the cusp of breaking out before suffering a se Randall Cobb Jersey ason-ending foot injury in 2017

It pained Emmanuel Ogbah to watch the Browns struggle down the stretch of their winless season without him.

The defensive end seemed to be on the cusp of a bre Randall Cobb Jersey Cheap akout campaign when he suffered a broken foot against the Jaguars in early November. It was a frustrating and deflating loss as Ogbah was amidst perhaps the best two-game stretc Ty Montgomery Jersey For Sale h of his young career that afternoon against Jacksonville.

Now, as Cleveland nears the end of offseason workouts, however, the third-year player says he’s healthy and ready to take the next step in what appears to be a promising career.

“It definitely hurt when it happened. They got the X-Ray, and they told me how long that I would be out,” Ogbah said Tuesday following the team’s seventh OTA practice. “Definitely hurt seeing my teammates, watching them go through what they went through. I just couldn’t wait to get back out there. I’m ready to go.”

In 10 games last season, Ogbah registered 29 tackles, four sacks and six batted balls at the line of scrimmage. If there were a game this weekend, he believes he’d be ready to play. Head coach Hue Jackson, to be certain, said the coaching staff will gently work Ogbah back into the swing of things.

“We’re going to ease those guys back, but he is practicing and competing,” he said last week. “He was out there yesterday and is doing some really good things.”

That’s good news for a new-look Browns defense that is building chemistry in organized team activities. Over the past few months, Cleveland overhauled its defensive secondary, drafted former Ohio State star cornerback Denzel Ward with the No. 4 pick and expects returning starters like Myles Garrett (the former No. 1 overall pick and Ogbah’s edge rushing counterpart) and safety/former first-round pick Jabrill Peppers to take a step in their second NFL season.

Ogba Men’s Nike Green Bay Packers Ty Montgomery Elite Team Color Jersey Cheap h, a second-round pick out of Oklahoma State in 2016, said he’s a “different type of player” entering his third year with the Browns. That, he said, simply comes with experience and learning the nuances of the professional ranks.

While he’s been a steady contributor for Cleveland thus far, he believes he’ll do more in 2018. “I’m not really reading like I used to be, I just go in this new defense that we have,” he said, pointing to a second year under defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.

Also helping in Ogbah’s development is the addition of Garrett, who led the team with seven sacks in 11 games last season. The two have forged a friendship while bookending the Browns’ defensive line and hope to engage in something of a friendly competition next year.

“That’s my boy. We have a bond going on,” Ogbah said, smiling. “We make each other better. We complement each other in the pass and run game. He’s a great player. He will be a great player for a very long time in this league. We just complement each other.”

Ogbah, asked about expectations for 2018, said he wants to play a role in helping the Browns make that 2017 season feel like a distant memory.

“We all were brought in for a reason. We all have got to step up to the plate,” he said. “We all have to give the team a chance to win games. We went 0-16, nobody is looking at that anymore. It’s a new season, new time, new year.”

The same goes for Ogbah, who stands to pick up where he left off last fall.

“This is Year 3 for him, and I know that he’s chomping at the bit to get back out there,” Jackson said. “We have to pull him back a little bit because he is ready to go, but I anticipate him having a good season. In order to do that, he has to have a good remaining OTAs and a great offseason, and he has to come back for training camp locked, loaded and ready to go.”

Hue Jackson: ‘The game isn’t too big’ for a growi Ty Montgomery Jersey ng, learning Baker Mayfield

The Browns drafted Mayfield No. 1 overall as their QB of the future

The learning curve for rookies applies to even No. 1 draft picks.

Such has been the case with Baker Mayfield, whom the Browns selected first in this past spring’s NFL Draft to be their franchise quarterback of the future. In his first public comments since rookie minicamp, the former Oklahoma star Tuesday spoke of acclimating to the speed of the professional game among other dynamics.

“It was inevitable. For me, I’m trying to slow it down,” Mayfield said following Men’s Nike Green Bay Packers Ty Montgomery Elite Team Color Jersey Cheap  the team’s seventh organized team activity practice. “I’m not going to complete the whole puzzle at once. That’s not how it work Randall Cobb Jersey s. I’m trying to get better at one thing at a time and get better every day.”

Indeed, the Browns see their future in Mayfield — a former Heisman Trophy winner with an uncanny ability to rally his teammates around him — and are in no rush to play him this season. They traded for former Bills standout and Pro Bowler Tyrod Taylor in March and signed 12-year veteran Drew Stanton not long after that. Jackson named Taylor the team’s starter upon the completion of the trade.

So when Mayfield, one of college football’s all-time most productive players, worked with the second-team offense for the first time in a practice open to the news media, head coach Hue Jackson played down the development as simply a chance for the youngster to work with more of his new teammates.  

“I just mixed it up. There’s nothing behind that,” said Jackson, who added Mayfield is receiving the same reps as before. “It’s just now you’re throwing to a different group of receivers because I think that he has to have that chemistry with all of those guys. It was good for him to do that. He did some good things today.”

Mayfield echoed a similar sentiment. “It’s a good opportunity for me to get different reps with different guys,” he said. “You want to learn your players. You want to learn your receivers, what they’re good at and get timing down with them. That’s just an opportunity to get a feel for everybody and get comfortable with the team.”

From developing chemistry with those new teammates to mastering the fundamentals of taking snaps under center, Mayfield has spent the past month or so absorbing loads of information. In the process, he’s leaned on the veterans, Taylor and Stanton.

“Great guys. Great guys to learn from. Ty is a little bit quiet, but the things that he says, they mean a lot. How he leads, he leads by example. Just what he says in the meeting room, like I said, it’s not a lot, but when he goes through certain things, he knows exactly what he is doing,” Mayfield said. “Also, you have Drew who’s been doing it for a while. I can sit back there and ask him questions, bounce things off of him, because Ty is in there playing a lot more. It’s a great group of guys. They keep it light, but we also keep it competitive. We’re trying to get better every day, and they are helping me out tremendously.”

Jackson, who has praised the 23-year-old’s work ethic on and off the field, believes Mayfield i Ty Montgomery Jersey s “right on schedule” as far as rookie quarterbacks go.

“I think that he’s doing good. The game isn’t too big for him. He demonstrates the ability to throw the ball and make decisions with the ball in his hands and learning our system,” he said.

“I think he’s on schedule, but is he a finished product? No, he’s not supposed to be, neither. He’s done everything we have asked him to do. There’s still a lot of work to do, a lot of work ahead of him. I think that he gets that and I think that he’s excited about that.”

Browns sign LB Mychal K Ty Montgomery Jersey endricks

Veteran brings 6 years of experience to Cleveland
