Here is a wrap-up on this morning's Browns section in the Cleveland Plain Dealer:
- Phil Dawson will be about 100% healthy when training camp starts. He has been a "true" Browns player, staying loyal to the team since its re-birth. He is already regaining his confidence in his leg, now that it's healing.
- Daylon McCutcheon is currently one of the Browns starting cornerbacks, alongside Gary Baxter. Despite the Browns signing Leigh Bodden to a large deal, he would have to earn his way into the starting lineup still.
- Brodney Pool and Sean Jones are currently neck-and-neck for the strong safety position. Pool impressed the coaches last year, while Jones has shown that he's a big saftey that can run.
- Willie McGinest and Ted Washington have been so helpful with the 3-4 defense already, that Crennel feels like they're almost assistant coaches.
- The team has not forgotten about David McMillan or Nick Speegle. Both players will be utilized in back-up type roles this year.
- Rookie receiver Travis Wilson will not automatically start at his position if Braylon Edwards is not healthy enough to return by the start of the season. Wilson will have to work his way ahead of Josh Cribbs, Frisman Jackson, and Brandon Rideau.
- Speaking of those receivers, Cribbs wants to be utilized as one this year. However, Crennel claims that Rideau needs to be more consistent.
