It’s that time of year folks! Browns training camp started back on July 25th for rookies… and the entire squad on the 27th!
Our scout team will be descending upon Berea this Saturday for a full pad practice; this includes Brent, Scott, Garett & myself!
On Friday, though, and through this past weekend I got most of my camp updates from twitter as I was on vacation. But yesterday evening I started some more serious research.
As is usual, the local media is still trying to fire up the ole quarterback controversy; this year between the short, weak, concussed Colt McCoy and the built-like-an-NFL-QB, rocket armed Brandon Weeden.
There will be no QB controversy this year, so you’re wasting your time Mary Kay Cabot!
Weeden will be named the starter and McCoy will end up in Jacksonville because Blaine Gabbert looks like me playing QB… in my bare feet… after a couple beers!
Anyway, here are some other players I’d like to get a look at on Saturday…
Trent Richardson (RB)…
I don’t need to evaluate T-Rich on Saturday. I already know he’s gonna be a stud. I’ve seen his highlight reel and posted it on here. He, and don’t laugh at me without watching his highlights, plays like Adrian Peterson. Dude’s fast, cuts well, and does not shy away from contact. I also think he blocks better than AP… but that’s just me. We shall see, but just look at this dude:
Montario Hardesty (RB)…
Oh Montario! You with the ligaments seemingly made of spaghetti! UGH! The Browns selected Hardesty in the second round of the 2010 draft. He tore his ACL after 6 nice carries in a preseason game against Chicago. Out for 2010. Last year he suffered other injuries which I’m too lazy to look up right now, but wasn’t a factor.
This is Hardesty’s first healthy camp. I hope he remains healthy. With the above two RBs, the Browns will have a serious ground game..
But we can’t run on every down! So the future hall of famer, Weeden, needs someone to throw to, right?
Josh Gordon (WR)…
Oops… THIS is Josh Gordon…
I’m sorry… I couldn’t help myself. But Josh likes his weed… hopefully he’s done with all that because dude is a physical specimen. Because of his off the field problems in college, Gordon could end up being a steal for the Browns. He entered the NFL supplemental draft instead of playing this year. Had he played in school this year, rumors are he’d be a
Travis Benjamin (WR)…
Every team needs that little speed receiver. I’ve seen his teammates tweet about him being the fastest on the team. I’ve seen his highlight reel as well and because of that, I’ll continue to compare him to Philly’s DeSean Jackson… without the diva attitude.
More on Browns camp later….
