If you’re not already excited about the new-look Cleveland Browns defense under new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, just watch this video and it’ll get you there.

Browns fan Megan Clarke posted a Facebook video of a recent appearance by Williams and Myles Garrett. The coach spoke in front of a lively Browns Backers group in Cleveland — The Browns Bunch — and got the group jacked up in anticipation of the start of training camp this week.

One highlight of the video includes Williams corroborating previous reporting depicting his pre-draft workout with No. 1 pick Garrett.

“Myles, this workout, what I’m going to do is, my attempt is, to break your spirit and make you quit.

“He looked my right in the eyes and said, ‘Come get some’,” Williams said to a thunderous applause.

Then in true Williams fashion, he gave fair warning to any parents planning to bring their kids to the team’s upcoming training camp this week.

“I don’t want to make offense to all the young kids here and everything... I have nine children. I have two grandchildren, I have nine children, but if your kids are allergic to the word ‘f—k’ don’t bring them out there (to training camp).”

Williams also mentioned Pittsburgh to the dismay of the crowd. A “Pittsburgh sucks!” chant broke out quickly, and the coach shared the sentiment.

Most importantly, he continued to stress his smash-mouth style, and promised his players would play hard for the fans on Sundays. That aggressive styles includes utilizing rookie Jabrill Peppers and probably newly acquired safety Calvin Pryor as pass rushers.
