Rookies from all across the AFC were at the Cleveland Browns training facility in Berea on Tuesday as part of the Play 60 event for the NFL Rookie Symposium. The Play 60 event is usually held outdoors, but due to a massive downpour of rain early Tuesday morning, the football camp was moved indoors.
The rain did clear up enough for all of the rookies to move outside for lunch:
Browns rookie NT Danny Shelton spoke to the media on Tuesday (watch the full interview here) about how the symposium has been for him so far:
"The symposium has been awesome. There's a lot of information that they are giving us as far as financially, advising, and talking about issues that are going on in the NFL. We also talked about help -- not being afraid to ask for help from the vets, the DPE's (Director of Player Engagement), or coaches. It's something that a lot of us are kind of shy of as rookies, but it's pretty encouraging at the symposium (hearing from the speakers) and the stories that they have."
Browns rookie OL Cameron Erving was also interviewed, which you can watch here. He was held out a bit at minicamp due to an undisclosed injury, but he says that won't be an issue come training camp, when he's expected to see initial action at right guard:

Here is a brief video of the Browns' rookies working with the kids:
The symposium concludes for the AFC rookies on Wednesday, meaning all 12 of the Browns' rookies will officially be on "summer break."
