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 Coopers Next Step is The Cleveland Browns!

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.

5-2          2-6 Cutler looked very accurate.  It seemed like the MN O didn’t want to play.  They were slow & uninterested.
MN is not going anywhere unless they can protect Bradford. He was harrassed by a weak pass rush.
Ian Rapport reports HC Fox & his staff are  on the hot seat in Chicago.
NJ31 CL28 It was the best of times (1st half).  It was the worst of times (2nd half).
3-5       0-8 Exhibit A the ball goes off RB Johnson hands to NJ defender, That gave NJ the FG for the winning points.
Fitzpatrick 16/34 228 10 Forte 25/82 2TDs Enunwa 4c 93y TD
McCown 25/49 341 22 Cromwell 11/29 TD Pryor 6c 101y
CL O Nobody but Pryor & Barnidge can catch the ball.
Good 1st drive. Nice to get out front for a change. 3rd & 10  throw 2 Pryor was the key.
Way too many 3rd and long for #Browns.
Pryor is becoming a #1 WR.
3rd & 10 throw for 4 yards will not get the 1st.  McCown predetermined the throw. On his left were 2 rec wide open.
McCown is still using pre-snap read to decide where to go with the ball.  Hawkins was doubled but McC threw it anyway.
Browns, Way too little & way too late.
CL D Davis & company played the run wide well -3
Taylor 3 PD.
Browns have never figured out how to stop the run on the edge. 35y TD run by Powell.
Memo TO #Browns. Man D works better if the S stays in the middle of the field.
Pryor was beating Revis but Marshall beating Haden worse.
Browns D is mailing it in from nowhere special.  Have to fix the D. 20-7 lead gone to 28-20 deficite
coaching Your 0-7 and have a 3rd & 2.  Go for it.  All that can happen is you will lose another game.  #Browns
What is with the wholesale changes in personell. Cost 5 yards for 12 men on the field.
Browns were doing well in man so why change to zone in the 2nd half?
WAY too many drops by WRs.
CL did not make adjustments NJ did on O and D.  How many times have I said that?
Thoughts The O is MUCH better with McCown than RG3 or Kessler. 50% on 3rd down conversions.
The D gets warn out.  On the field for 20 min in 2nd half.  Rookies have hit the wall.
Tackling is HORRIBLE.  4 missed tackles on Enunwa’s TD.
We are not seeing the improvement I expected by the young players.
Kessler is NOT the QB 4 the future. Heart of a lion, Mind of a coach & the Arm of a chicken.

DA Tony Romo is throwing the ball at practice.
JK22 TN36 The Titans scored on 4 of their first 5 possessions. It was a very one sided game.

The game was Col. Mustard vs the Smerfs
TN Mariota 19/22 270 20 Murray 21/123 TD Wright 4c 84y TD
JK Bortles 33/54 337 30 4r 22y Hurns 7c 98 TD

CN pass game (4th) vs WA pass D (17th)
WA pass game (3rd) vs CN pass D (12th)
NE-6.5 BF In week 4 BF shut out NE. But that was without Brady at QB. Look for NE to crush BF for payback.

Brady & pass game vs BF pass D (31st)
BF run game (2nd) vs NE run D (11th)
AZ CR-3 CR has lost more games this year than in all of last season.  This will be a HUGE test of CR pass D.

AZ run game (5th) vs CR run D (7th)
CR pass game (8th) vs AZ pass D (3rd)
DT HO-2.5 HO O has struggled but so has DT D.
4-3     4-3 The issue with Osweiler is he is not accurate & has bad footwork.
The only reason HC O’Brien has not benched his QB is Savage & Weeden are his only other QBs.
HO run game (12th) vs DT run D (19th)
DT pass game (12th) vs HO pass D (2nd)
KC-2.5 IN There is nothing wrong with Luck that a better O line would not solve.

IN pass game (7th) vs KC pass D (19th)
KC run game (18th) vs IN run D (25th)
SE-3 NO SE has the WORST O line in NFL.  Not only hurts Wilson but run game as well.
4-1-1 2-4 All NO can depend on is QB Brees.  Has nothing else on either side of the ball.
SE pass game (14th) vs NO pass D (30th)
NO pass O (1st) vs SE pass D (9th)
OK TB-1 OK O is doing well while TB O is struggling a bit.

OK O (13th pass & run) vs TB D (13th pass & 20th run)
TB pass O (16th) vs OK pass D (32nd)

5-2  3-4 DV rush O (16th) vs SD run D (8th)
SD pass O (5th) vs DV pass D (1st)
GB AT-3 GB O has struggled.  The problem is WRs are not getting open & Rodgers is not as accurate now either.
4-2  4-3 AT started hot but lost @ SE and home vs SD.  SE loss was expected. SD not so much.
AT pass O (2nd) vs GB pass D (15th)
GB pass O (20th) vs AT pass D (31st)
PH DA-4.5 DA has won 5 straight games.  Rookie QB Prescott is good but run game is outstanding.
4-2   5-1 PH rook QB Wentz is OK but the problem has been his mechanics.  The D has been the difference.
DA run game (1st) vs PH run D (14th)
PH run game (17th) vs DA run D (10TH)
MN-5.5  CH Monday
5-1          1-6

NJ run game (21st) vs CL run D (31st)
CL run game (8th) vs NJ run D (2nd)
