Browns Week in Review: July 1 - July 7

Let's take a look at what happened during the past week related to the Cleveland Browns (or important NFL news). It might not be a busy time in the NFL, but our training camp preview coverage kicked off this past week. After the jump is a recap from the week of July 1 - July 7.

  • Sunday, July 1st: In The Sunday Five, I looked at how the Browns ranked last year in risking a blackout compared to other teams. ... Part 1 of our quarterback preview kicked off, as I talked about Brandon Weeden's abilities and what the team should do with Colt McCoy. ... Without Weeden or Trent Richardson under contract, Cleveland has the third most cap space in the NFL. ... The supplemental draft was set for July 12.
  • Monday, July 2nd: Colts tight end Coby Fleener guest-wrote for MMQB and talked about the Browns rookies taking third place in a rookie challenge. ... Part 2 of our quarterback preview looked at Seneca Wallace and the seldom talked about Thaddeus Lewis.
  • Tuesday, July 3rd: Browns DT Kiante Tripp, who didn't have a good shot at making the team to begin with, was arrested on burglary charges. ... Fans reflected on the Browns' horrid 2009 draft (given a grade D by ESPN's Jamison Hensley), which saw David Veikune and Brian Robiskie selected in the second round. ... To begin our preview of running backs, I talked about the team's fast transition away from Peyton Hillis.
  • Wednesday, July 4th: We wished everyone a Happy 4th of July. ... Part 1 of our running back preview looked at the role Trent Richardson will play, if Montario Hardesty will make the team, and how much Brandon Jackson could contribute.
  • Thursday, July 5th: The second part of our running back preview asked if there was any room on the roster for Chris Ogbonnaya. ... We then shifted to our fullback preview, where fans debated if Owen Marecic or Brad Smelley will command the most important position on the team.
  • Friday, July 6th: In a radio interview, it was surprising to hear Trent Richardson dish out some high praise for offensive tackle Oniel Cousins. ... Mel Kiper looked at who the Browns could use right now from the 2013 draft class.
  • Saturday, July 7th: We ran the first-ever edition of our Dawgs By Nature mailbag. ... It was too long, so I split it up into two parts [Part 1 / Part 2]. ... Because it was absolutely sweltering in the room where my computer is at, I was unable to do the scheduled preview for the defensive line; it will run into the offensive lineman's time for a day or so to make up for it, when the weather is cooler to write.
