Browns exercise 5th-year option on Damarious Ran Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey 2018 dall

Randall, whom Cleveland traded for last month, was the 30th  Kevin Pillar Canada Day Jersey overall pick in the 2015 draft

The Browns have exercised the fifth-year option on safety Damarious Randall, whom they acquired in a trade with the Green Bay Packers last month.

Randall, the 30th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, is expected to give Cleveland’s secondary a boost after finishing second-to-last in Josh Donaldson Canada Day Jersey interceptions last season.

Browns coach Hue Jackson has said Randall will play free safety — his original position at Arizona State — after mostly playing cornerback in thr Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey ee seasons with the Packers. General manager John Dorsey added he was a fan of Randall in college.

“I thought he was a really good football player,” Dorsey said last month. “He has natural feet. He has real Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 55 Russell Martin Toronto Blue Jays Canada Day Red Jersey ly excellent athletic skill sets. He gives you great flexibility. He can play corner. He can play safety.”

Randall, 25, joins a secondary that includes rookie cornerback Denzel Ward, whom the Browns drafted with the No. 4 pick, second-year safety Jabrill Russell Martin Canada Day Jersey Peppers (the 25th pick in the 2017 draft), Jamar Taylor, Brian Boddy-Calhoun and free agent additions in corners T.J. Currie, E.J. Gaines and Terrance Mitchell.

Clubs have until Thursday to determine whether they use fifth-year options on 2015 first-round draftees.​

Browns keeping optio Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey 2018 ns open with versatile OL Austin Corbett

Cleveland used 1st pick of Day 2 on former Nevada standout

The only thing Austin Corbett did during a decorated career at Nevada was play left tackle.

The Browns believe Corbett, whom they selected with the first pick of Friday’s second round, has the potential to do a little bit of everything on an offensive line that has enhanced its versatility throughout the offseason.

“I see him as a good football player, very multi-faceted. He can do a lot of things. There is no doubt that he could probably play center for you,” said Alonzo Highsmith, Cleveland’s new vice president of player personnel. “I think one of the best things that you want to do is add good football players to your team. It is a great problem to h Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey ave, a guy that can play a bunch of different positions.”

After a redshirt freshman season, Corbett took over the reins for Joel Bitonio, who he’ll join in Cleveland, at left tackle and never looked back. He ended his career with 48 consecutive starts at the position before embarking on a pre-draft process that focused heavily on a likely transition to the interior of the offensive line.

It was a path Bitonio walked, too, and Corbett carried the same, positive attitude about it.

“I am definitely a tackle player,” Corbett said. “I spent the last four years there, but at the Senior Bowl, again, that was my chance to move inside and I felt really comfortable at those positions, as well. Really, whatever the Browns want me to do, I am going to do for them. I am just super excited to get into Cleveland.”

Corbett’s come a long way from his freshman year, when he onl Russell Martin Canada Day Jersey y earned walk-on status at Nevada after e-mailing one of the team’s position coaches. According to a report in the Reno Gazette Journal, Corbett, who battled a knee injury in high school that derailed his pursuit of scholarship offers, sent the e-mail to assistant coach Ken Wilson, who lived in Corbett’s hometown of Sparks. Corbett knew Wilson’s kids and had nothing to lose.

Corbett’s message was convincing enough, and he never looked back. He piled on good weight to what was a 240-pound frame during a redshirt year and proved ready to fill Bitonio’s shoes in 2015.

“It is just a difference in how you have to go about yourself when you are a walk-on … There are things you have to do to that kids on scholarships do not,” Corbett said. “There is nothing wrong with that. Just having that mentality to carry on and that mentality is what it takes to be the great football pla Kevin Pillar Canada Day Jersey yer.”

Corbett joins a Browns offensive line full of good players that is looking to replace a great one in Joe Thomas, the future Hall of Fame left tackle who retired last month. Shon Coleman and a slew of others are slated to compete at the spot, and Corbett could very well join them. He could also give the team some options at other positions. It will be up to the Browns coaches to find Corbett’s best possible spot, Highsmith and assistant general manager Eliot Wolf said.

“You look at the contracts throughout the league, the tackles are the ones that are getting paid more and getting picked higher,” Wolf said. “If Austin is able to be the left tackle, it would be great.

“We have some options the Josh Donaldson Canada Day Jersey re.”

Browns believe Georgia’s Nick Chubb Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey 2018 built to thrive in AFC North

Cleveland selected the RB with the 35th overall pick Friday night

The Browns view Nick Chubb as a running back built to play in Cleveland.

That’s why they tabbed the former Georgia star with the 35th overall  Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 55 Russell Martin Toronto Blue Jays Canada Day Red Jersey pick Friday night in the NFL Draft, giving head coach Hue Jackson and Co. another talented runner on what’s been a fundamentally reshaped offense over the past month.

“I’ve been a big fan of Chubb for a long time. One thing about SEC running backs is, when you play running back in the SEC, you have to be able to create between the tackles with your feet,” vice president of player personnel Alonzo Highsmith said. “You have to be able to play a physical style of football. Nick Chubb exemplifies that in his running style.”

Chubb ran for 4,769 yards and 41 touchdowns in four seasons with the Bulldogs, including 1,547 yards as a freshman that paved the way toward winning SEC Freshman of the Year. After suffering a serious knee injury the following year, Chubb bounced back with back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons and helped power Georgia to a national title game appearance as a senior.

“He’s super productive. I think he is second all-time in the SEC behind Russell Martin Canada Day Jersey (former Georgia RB) Herschel Walker in rushing yards,” assistant general manager Eliot Wolf said. “He’s big. He has excellent feet for his size. He has good bursts. Powerful, breaks tackles. Super balanced.”

While Chubb, a Georgia native who stayed home for college ball, has limited experience playing in colder weather, the Browns believe his frame (5-11, Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey 225) and approach to the game lend itself to having success in the rugged AFC North.

Highsmith, a former running back himself with the Miami Hurricanes and, then, the Houston Oilers, compared Chubb to former Ravens/Browns bruiser Jamal Lewis. Backs like Chubb, he said, can thrive when the weather turns in November.

“I have watched the AFC North for a long time, and I do know one thing; it is big, physical, between the tackles running-style football,” he said.

“You look at the backs that have come out of the AFC, they have all been big. (Former Ravens RB) Ray Rice was short, but he was a powerful runner. When you play in this type of weather, similar to Green Bay and that kind of stuff, you have to be able to run the football.”

Chubb joins a running backs room that includes the dynamic Duke Johnson Jr. and Carlos Hyde, who signed with the team in free agency after four seasons with the 49ers. While it’s unclear what Chubb’s role might be next season, Highsmith said there’s no doubting Chubb’s resiliency, pointing to how he bounced back from what could have been a potentially-devastating knee injury back in 2015.

“That tells you a lot about the person and his commitment, his will and his want to succeed,” he said.

“In this game, football is the most brutal, physical game played. It takes certain types of people. It’s not for everyb Josh Donaldson Canada Day Jersey ody. It’s a very demanding game. The shelf life of a running back is not very long sometimes. When you see a guy come back from what Nick Chubb came back from, his history and his résumé, you don’t have to talk about it. Kevin Pillar Canada Day Jersey It’s there on paper for you. You can see it, and he overcame a knee injury. I have no questions on the guy. Just give him the ball.”​

Browns trade with Patriots to Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey 2018 move up in 4th round

Cleveland uses pick to select Florida WR Antonio Callaway

The Browns moved up in the fourth round Saturday in a trade with the New Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey England Patriots.

Cleveland sent the No. 112 pick (fourth round) and No. 178 (sixth round) in exchange for the No. 105 pick. The Browns used the pick on Florida wide receiver Antonio Calla Kevin Pillar Canada Day Jersey way.

Cleveland now has th Russell Martin Canada Day Jersey ree picks left on Day 3: 150, 175 and 188.

The trade was the Browns’ second of the 2018 draft. Cleveland moved back Friday in a trade that ul Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 55 Russell Josh Donaldson Canada Day Jersey Martin Toronto Blue Jays Canada Day Red Jersey timately netted third-round DE Chad Thomas.

Browns select Florida WR Antonio Calla Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey 2018 way with 105th pick in 2018 NFL Draft

Callaway played two seasons at Florida

The Browns have selected Florida wide receiver Antonio Callaway with the 105th pick in the NFL Draft Saturday.

Callaway caught 89 passes for 1,399 yards and seven touchdowns in two seasons. Considered a first-round talent by some draft analysts, Callaway fell due to off-field concerns and did not play th Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey e 2017 season with the Gators.

“I feel very comfortable with where we are as an organization. We have done extensive, I mean extensive, background work here,” general manager John Dorsey said in a news conference after the pick.

“We actually have had people go down to Gainesville. We have actually had people go down to certain areas just to find out all about the specifics of the situation. We feel very good about where we are and where he is, and where those things you Josh Donaldson Canada Day Jersey  Kevin Pillar Canada Day Jersey  were talking about, where those are at. I feel very comfortable with where we are to make a move like this.”

Ca Russell Martin Canada Day Jersey llaway is the sixth player to be drafted by the Browns, joining Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield (No. 1), Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward (No. 4) and Nevada guard/tackle Austin Corbett (No. 33), Georgia running back Nick Chubb (No. 35) and Miami defensive end Chad Thomas (No. 67).

Callaway joins a receivers room that includes Josh Gordon, Jarvis Landry and Corey Coleman.

Dorsey believes Cleveland has the infrastructure to support Callaway.

“Once you get him involved in that type of culture, good things can happen,” Dorsey said, referencing manager of player engagement Ron Brewer and Joe Sheehan, vice president of player health and development, and new wide receivers coach Adam Henry. “Basically what this is, is they’re trying to develop the person. They go every week and they sit there and they begin to work through all these programs,” Dorsey said. “I think it’s helpful and I think it’s refreshing for these guys to get an understanding of those development aspects of the engagement programs.”

2018 Draft: Browns did t Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey 2018 heir homework on WR Antonio Callaway, comfortable with fit

GM John Dorsey says Cleveland did extensive digging into the Florida WR’s background

The Browns feel comfortable with new wide receiver Antonio Callaway’s off-field history and believe they have systems in place to support him, general manager John Dorsey said Saturday.

Dorsey, who met with the news media shortly after trading up to grab the former Florida standout, said Cleveland dug deep into Callaway’s past, w Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey eighing his talent against a history of issues that caused the former freshman All-American to drop in the draft.

“I feel very comfortable with where we are as an organization. We have done extensive, I mean extensive, background work here,” Dorsey said.

“We actually have had people go down to Gainesville. We have actually had people go down to certain areas just to find out all about the specifics of the sit Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 55 Russell Martin Toronto Blue Jays Canada Day Red Jersey uation. We feel very good about where we are and where he is, and where those things you were talking about, where those are at. I feel very comfortable with where we are to make a move like this.”

Callaway, the 105th overall pick, caught 89 passes for 1,399 yards and seven touchdowns in two seasons with the Gators. Considered a first-round talent by some draft analysts — Dorsey said he ranked him as the first or second best receiver in the class — Callaway was cleared of a sexual assault charge following his freshman year and has had multiple run-ins for drug-related offenses. Callaway didn’t play in 2017 because of his involvement in a credit card fraud scheme and reportedly failed a drug test at the combine.

Dorsey believes the Browns have the infrastructure — citing the club’s coaching staff and player-engagement program — to support Callaway and help him develop both on and off the field.

“Once you get him involved in that type of culture, good things can happen,” Dorsey said, referencing manager of player engagement Ron Brewer and Joe Sheehan, vice president o Kevin Pillar Canada Day Jersey f player health and development, and new wide receivers coach Adam Henry.

“Basically what this is, is they’re trying to develop the person. They go every week and they sit there and they begin to work through all these programs,” Dorsey said. “I think it’s helpful and I think it’s refreshing for these guys to get an understanding of those development aspects of the engagement programs.”

Dorsey, who has drafted similarly controversial prospects in Pro Bowl Russell Martin Canada Day Jersey cornerback Marcus Peters and Tyreek Hill, said he evaluates each player on a case-by-case basis. Peters, now with the Rams, and Hill have largely stayed clear of off-field issues during their respective NFL careers.

“You sit and meet with individuals, and then you begin to understand what they are as people,” Dorsey said.

“If you sit there and understand his situations and his life story, you can see a guy who strives – he actually loves the game  Josh Donaldson Canada Day Jersey of football – but he likes structure and he likes routine. You can see that there is a degree of humility with this person. You have to do your risk tolerance and say, “OK, where are we here?’ And I thought that this was the appropriate level to make a move like this.”​

John Dorse Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey 2018 y press conference – 4/28

Cleveland’s GM discusses the Antonio Callaway pick

General Manager John Dorsey:

Opening statement:

“I thought it would be important for me to come down here and discuss this next player, (WR) Antonio Callaway. I am very excited to get a guy of this caliber and this talent at the round we thought. As we sat and processed the information – we did a lot of all types of levels of processing the information – based on things that have happened in the past and based on his ability, we thought that the fourth round is right where you kind of get a guy like this because you know that you have certain resources in place that can help young men develop. I have been around a lot of teams in the National Football League, and this [team] probably has one of the better player support systems there is in the National Football League. I just want you all to know one thing: he will understand what it means to be a Cleveland Brown. Once he understands 100 percent what it means to be a Cleveland Brown, the Cleveland Browns will be 100 percent committed to making this man a football player. I have always said this very humbly: it is not just our job to have people leave as good players; it is our job to have people leave as good people, as well. That is where it is, and with that I will take your questions.”

On character being important to the organization and drafting Callaway:

“Character is important. I think it is a case by case basis. You sit and meet with individuals, and then you begin to understand what they are as people. If you sit there and understand his situations and his life story, you can see a guy who strives – he actually loves the game of football – but he likes structure and he likes routine. You can see that there is a degree of humility with this person. You have to do your risk tolerance and say, ‘OK, where are we here?’ I thought that this was the appropriate level to make a move like this.”

On talking with Callaway during the pre-draft process:

“We talked to him multiple times. We talked to him at the  Josh Donaldson Canada Day Jersey Combine in the 60-player interviews. We also talked to him down at the train station with the position coaches. We brought him into one of the 30 visits. What is really neat is the greatest impact on a player in the game of football is usually that position coach. When you have a strong personality like (WR coach) Adam Henry, who can lead men and change men around, I have seen that year in and year out with really strong coaches that can change young men’s lives. I truly believe that with our leadership on our coaching staff between the offensive coordinator, the position coach and then you through (Head Coach) Hue (Jackson) in there, I am OK with it. I am excited for it.”

On Callaway not playing last season:

“We talked to him about the situation at the combine, and it killed him. I think that the time away and time to reflect probably helped him to understand how important the game of football is. That is why you have to understand what is meaningful in his life, as well, moving forward.”

On bringing Callaway into a WR room that includes other individuals with off-field incidents and if that adds risk:

“You could say that, but again, I think that the position coach will make an impact there. I do believe that. I believe that this guy is driven. This kid will be driven to prove people that ‘You know what? I made a mistake, but I am excited to be a Cleveland Brown.”

On Callaway having made multiple mistakes:

“I feel very comfortable with where we are as an organization. We have done extensive – I mean extensive – background work here. We actually have had people go down to Gainesville. We have actually had people go down to certain areas just to find out all about the specifics of the situation. We feel very good about where we are, where he is and where those things you were talking about, where those are at. I feel very comfortable with where we are to make a move like this.”

On public perception that failing a drug test at the 2018 NFL Combine is an ‘intelligence test’:

“There are some things that I am not going to talk about. I am not going to talk about that from a policy standpoint. Again, I think with the programs that we have in place here for the Cleveland Browns, I do believe that this guy can develop and be a Cleveland Brown the way we want to see it.”

On having a history of drafting successful NFL players who had off-field incidents before entering the league:

“I think it is a case by case basis. I think each one of them are [case by case]. It is like when you meet anybody, you have to understand the depth of the situation and then you also have to understand the person. Once you understand the person and the situation, then I think you can make an educated assumption of which path you want to choose.”

On if he has a history with wide receivers coach Adam Henry:

“No, but there are so many people that I know around the league that have great respect for his ability to lead men. He kind of reminds me the way he runs his meetings of a guy that I have been around, (Chiefs offensive coordinator) Eric Bieniemy. I think they have similar mannerisms in how they lead young men. I just like how guys are going to gravitate to him.”

On if he was looking to help address punt and kick return in the draft, given Callaway’s special teams history:

“I was. Part of this, too, is we all know that if you can get a nice quality punt returner, it changes the field position. This guy is a playmaker who can change the field position in the punt game, as well as the receiving part of it.”

On if Callaway is a first-round talent:

“To me, he would have been the first or second receiver in the draft.”

On drafting a player with a sexual assault allegation, given the current social climate:

“Again, you just said it. It was an allegation. We have done our research and we feel comfortable with where we are in the situation.”

On if he expected Callaway would be available at No. 114 before trading:

“I did not because I had a few birdies call me and say, ‘OK, this may happen so be prepared.’ I thought it was appropriate. You give up – we had three sixes – so I have no problem giving up a sixth-round pick to get a player of that magnitude.”

On how long of a leash the team will have with Callaway:

“Once you get in here committed in place, let’s let him get a trust mechanism in the organization. Let him get ingrained in what it means to be a Cleveland Brown and what is the Cleveland Browns way. Once you get him involved in that type of culture, good things can happen.”

On the support system in the Browns building:

“(Manager of Player Engagement) Ron Brewer and  Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey his staff and (Vice President, Player Health & Development) Joe Sheehan and the health and development program, they do a great job. They do that leadership mentoring. They take them through educational seminars. He sits down with peer mentoring groups. Basically what this is, they are trying to develop the person. They go every week and they sit there and they begin to work through all these programs. I think it is helpful, and it is refreshing for these guys to get an understanding of those development aspects of the engagement programs. I just think being around Brew and Russell Martin Canada Day Jersey watching him work and do his stuff, the people that he brings and has interact with the players and the community outreach and what they do, it teaches young men not only to be good players but allows them to grow and develop as men as well.”

On if Callaway will play outside or slot receiver:

“I think he can play probably X or Z all depending. He can play either position. Plus, he can be your returner, again, as well.”

On Callaway’s talent:

“He brings hands. He brings vertical explosion. He brings outstanding run after the catch, processes information very well. He is also exciting as a punt returner. When you have a guy that, it is going to take a little bit in terms of learning the receiver  Kevin Pillar Canada Day Jersey position. It is always a hard transition to make from college to the pros because of the amount of information. I think he will do well in that regard.”

Browns RB Nick Chubb conference call – Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey 2018 4/28

Former Georgia RB spoke with reporters Saturday

RB Nick Chubb:

On who he would compare his running style to in the NFL:

“That is a tough question. Definitely a big back that is powerful. Maybe a Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey (Dolphins RB) Frank Gore or somebody in that area.”

On recovering from a season-ending knee injury:

“I have been through a lot, a lot of adversity. That is how it has been my entire life. With what happened with my knee, I had to fight back and push myself to get back to where I was… Thankfully, everything worked out for me.”

On how the knee injury occurred and his rehabilitation process:

“I ended up tearing everything in my lef Josh Donaldson Canada Day Jersey t knee besides my ACL. Definitely a lot went into it, definitely a lot of tough times. This was hard. Just the rehab was the toughest thing that I have been through just from a standpoint of trying to get my knee back to where it was at, trying to bend it and trying to walk again, having to actually run and cut up again. It was a tough time, b Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 55 Russell Martin Toronto Blue Jays Canada Day Red Russell Martin Canada Day Jersey Jersey ut I had a really good trainer. He really helped me out. He made sure that I was working, and he kept pushing me and motivating me until I got back to where I am.”

On if last season was the first time he ‘felt back on his feet’ following the knee injury, recording a 1,000 yard season:

“Definitely. The year right after in the 2016 season, I just did not feel like myself. I was able to move around a little bit and just run, but I just felt like it was not right, even though I was back. Last season, I could tell that it was not what I thought it was. Last season getting back to where I was, I am feeling 10 times better. At this point, things are feeling really good.”

On if he had surgery on his knee:

“Yes.”

On if he ever believed the injury could be the end of his career and motivation to return:

“I had never been injured so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Just talking to (Georgia Director of Sports Medicine) Ron Courson, he kind of told me that I would be able to get back to where I was at so I trusted his word and he got me back to where I was. I’m very thankful for him and his staff and everyone supporting and helping out.”

On QB Baker Mayfield:

“He is an outstanding player. He is able to make throws that you are not supposed to make and you can tell that he is a very fierce competitor, which I love about him. I had been scouting him more than a week before we played him, and I’m on offense so if I’m hearing about how good of player he is, he can pose an exceptional threat and (Georgia Head) Coach (Kirby) Smart was coming to the offense to tell us we need to score points because it is going to be hard stopping a guy like him. I am happy that we are on the same team.”

On playing against Mayfield and his demeanor on the sidelines and if Mayfield went overboard at all:

“No, he was Kevin Pillar Canada Day Jersey  doing [it for the team]. He was the face of that team. When he does that, they get all the momentum, the fans get involved, and it just helps the team out and picks the spirits up… If he does the same thing for the team we are on, it will be a good thing for everybody.”

On his eagerness to play with RBs Duke Johnson Jr. and Carlos Hyde:

“I am very eager. Those guys have been in the league for some years. Go in and learn from them, watch them and just try to get as many carries and get ready to go forward and just learn from them.”

On his excitement to play with offensive coordinator Todd Haley:

“Very excited. Obviously, he likes to run the ball. It is what I do best is run the football. I can’t wait to get into the system and get comfortable with everything and get to playing some ball under him.”

Browns select Memphis LB Genard Avery with No. 150 pick in 2018 NFL Dra Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey 2018 ft

Cleveland adds its 3rd defensive player in the draft

The Browns selected Memphis LB Genard Avery with the 150th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Avery is the seventh player to be drafted by Cleveland, joining Ok Josh Donaldson Canada Day Jersey lahoma QB  Kevin Pillar Canada Day Jersey Baker Mayfield (No. 1), Ohio State CB Denzel Ward Russell Martin Canada Day Jersey  (No. 4), Nevada OL Austin Corbett (No. 33), Georgia RB Nick Chubb, Miam Men’s Majestic Flexbase Authentic 55 Russell Martin Toronto Blue Jays Canada Day Red Jersey i DE Chad Thomas (No. 67) and Florida WR Antonio Callaway (No. 105).

A three-year starter at Memphis, Avery thrived as a senior, ranking in the top-10 in the nation with 22 tackles for loss. He had 80 tackles last season and 81 during a junior season in which he posted 11 for loss and nabbed two pick-sixes. Though he didn’t start much as a freshman, Avery led the Tigers with five sacks that season.

NFL.com projects Avery as a middle linebacker within a 4-3 scheme. He could be active on special teams as well.

“They know that I am versatile,” Avery said. “They know that I can play outside or inside linebacker. It really does not matter, I am comfortable with wherever they want to put me. I am just ready to start.

“In college, I played on the special teams from my freshman to senior season. It was great. I am not unfamiliar with any position on special teams. Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey Wherever the coaching staff and the organization want me that is where I am going to play. So I am just ready to get started.”
