Cleveland Browns Training Camp Stays In Berea

Tags: , , , , , , ,

Columbus no longer getting promised training camp as Browns back out of the deal.

A deal that would have seen the Cleveland Browns training camp relocated to Columbus in 2018 falls through as the Browns back out.

The deal would have included new football fields, and a new and bigger Tuttle Park rec center. On Wednesday, the Browns informed Franklin County and the city that they would not be moving forward.

According to a statement from the team’s spokesman, Peter John-Baptiste, the organization felt it was in everyone’s best interest to remain in Berea for the immediate future.

The turned down deal would have cost Franklin County and the Browns $5 million each with the city covering the estimated $15-17 million remaining.

According to a statement given by Columbus director of Recreation and Parks, Tony Collins, the goal of the project was to work with partners in a way that maximized programs for their residents and facilities, but they were unable to move forward with the project.

While the deal was still in its early stages earlier this month, it did appear to be on its way to coming to fruition. It is unclear what caused the Browns to walk away, but they did reaffirm their commitment to stay in Berea, a suburb of Cleveland.

This is the second deal this year to fall through that would see the Browns relocate outside of Cleveland.

Jonathan Cooper

Jonathan Cooper is taking a new step in his career starting this week as the Right Guard for the Cleveland Browns.

Despite this new improvement in his career, Jonathan Cooper’s journey has not been an easy one. During this last year, he broke a bone in his leg and was thus placed on the injured reserve list, while working for the Arizona Cardinals in 2013. Then he was traded off to the New England Patriots in March, and then finally was claimed by the Browns.

Now Cooper, a 6’2″, 302 lbs man, will be replacing John Greco who was put on reserve for injuring his foot last week.

“It’s a great opportunity,” Cooper said. This is the time for Cooper to show his teammates what he is capable of.

Cleveland O-line Coach, Hal Hunter, said concerning Cooper, “He is athletic. He is smart. He is tough. Coach Hunters views this misfortune, as a new opportunity for Jonathan Cooper.

Coach Hue Jackson is looking forward to seeing what Jonathan Cooper, “is capable of doing,” and shares Coach Hunter’s sentiments saying, “This is what this league is about, a chance, an opportunity, and when you get it you have to make the most of it.”

This is Cooper’s first time being on a team that currently has No Wins. Football fans everywhere are looking forward to seeing Jonathan Cooper, take his next step as Cleveland Browns, Right Guard.

Revis Says Pryor Is ‘One Of The Best Athletes’ In NFL

Tags: , ,

This week was quite the week for celebrity back scratching. Darrelle Revis stood up for Terrell Pryor shortly after Pryor stood up for him in the midst of criticism.

Revis praised Pryor by saying that he is one of the best NFL athletes to date. He states the fact that Pryor seemed to flawlessly switch positions as his reason for so supporting him. Revis went on to say that he was happy to see Pittsburgh guys excelling.

Pryor started the player code when he defending Revis through a whole lot of criticism about his speed reduction as a 31-year-old player. Terrelle Pryor said that Revis still had what it took to lock things down.

All praise aside, Revis is correct about Pryor’s ability. Not many people can make such a massive position switch and excel at it like Pryor did. Hue Jackson made a smart move when he made the decision to keep this person around.

Pryor has excellent standings at this moment. He is leading the team in areas such as touchdowns, yards and much more. He is a good  player, and he is solid where he stands. Pryor has proven to be a true diamond in the rough.

Cleveland Browns Josh McCown Back In Practice

Tags: , , ,

 

Browns QB Practices Despite Injury

Josh McCown started the season as Robert Griffin III‘s backup. He ended up starting game 2 on the season but suffered a broken collarbone in the first half of the game versus the rival Baltimore Ravens. He ended up finishing the game but has not appeared in a game for Cleveland since.

This week, the veteran QB returned to practice. He has his eyes set on the goal of winning back the starting spot at quarterback for the Browns. The Browns are 0-5 on the season so far.

So far this season, 5 different players have appeared at the quarterback position for the Browns. The original starter, Griffin, was injured in game 1. Then McCown started game 2. Since then rookie Cody Kessler, wide receiver Terrelle Pryor, and career journeyman Charlie Whitehurst have all appeared at the position for the Browns. It is important to note that Pryor was drafted out of college by the Raiders to play quarterback after starring at the position in college at Ohio State.

Kessler was injured in week 5 against the New England Patriots. It was originally thought that he had broken bones in his check, but X-rays revealed that to be not true. The quarterback situation this year is a perfect representation of the Browns situation at the position since the team’s inception in 1999.

Cleveland Browns Terrelle Pryor Can Do It All

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Terrelle Pryor began his college football career at Ohio State as the starting quarterback for the Buckeyes.  It makes sense that he now finds himself in Cleveland with the Browns.  He recently showed his skills in receiving, rushing, and passing against the Miami Dolphins team. This player can do it all! And the Browns need him to do it all until they have a solid option at quarterback.

Pryor Switches to Wide Receiver

He boldly switched positions only a year ago to keep his NFL career going.  This receiver is a valuable player because he recently gained 21 yards rushing, 144 yards receiving, and 35 yards passing.  He is the first player since Billy Kilmer in 1964 to catch three passes, throw three passes and carry three times.  This is an impressive feat for any player.

Terrelle Pryor is a valuable asset to the floundering Cleveland Browns (0-3).  Since he is over six feet tall and can run at lightning speed, he adds depth to the team.  The Browns are currently starting their third string quarterback and it is entirely possible that Pryor may be passing even more in the upcoming games.

Hue Jackson is the head coach for the Browns and has created several packages to better utilize the unique skill-set that Pryor brings to the table.  It will be interesting to see what number 11 will accomplish next.  His teammates love his positive attitude and he is also a fan favorite in Ohio.
