  • "Eyes on Berea: Week Two OTAs" (ESPN Cleveland) - "T-Rich on the sidelines – Members of the media were welcomed to week two of OTAs with a surprise. Trent Richardson was not practicing due to what the team called a lower leg injury. Normally missing a day of off season work would not be a big deal, but the Browns are installing a new offensive system that has many downfield passing routes."
  • "Joe Banner has done a lot, but skeptical city waiting for wins" (Plain Dealer) - "As Joe Banner speaks more and more about being the man with a plan in Berea, you get the sense he's itching to say what's happening there is not business as usual. The hangup: stating that case so emphatically would be, you know, business as usual."
  • "Little finds veteran mentor in Bess" ( - "After leading the Cleveland Browns in receptions in each of the last two seasons, wide receiver Greg Little is focused on improving his game. To that end, he is making a point of learning all he can from Davone Bess, the five-year veteran receiver the Browns acquired in a trade with the Miami Dolphins during the 2013 NFL Draft."

  • "Joe Flacco's agent: 'No sympathy'" (ESPN) - "Joe Flacco's agent told USA Today Sports that the Baltimore Ravens made a dumb move by not signing the quarterback before last season. Flacco signed a six-year, $120.6 million extension this offseason after helping the Ravens win the Super Bowl."
  • "Urlacher, Lewis broke the mold for prototype inside linebackers" ( - "Now that Brian Urlacher and Ray Lewis have opted for retirement just months apart, maybe their defining accomplishment is that nobody personified the evolution of the middle/inside linebacker position -- with all its demands for increasing athleticism -- better than the two veterans who respectively became the familiar face of the Bears and Ravens franchises."
  • "Active players who are locks for Canton and those on the cusp" (CBS Sports) - "I asked a simple question about the Hall of Fame: Which active players are locks to go to Canton right now?
