Cleveland Browns:

  • Darrin Hall gets busy in Browns running back room ( - Former Austintown Fitch star Darrin Hall never did make it all the way out of James Conner’s shadow at Pitt, but his new coach seems to like him, and Hall seems intent on making it as a Brown.
  • Browns rookies have dinner with team legends ( - John Dorsey is trying to awaken the sleeping giant that is the Cleveland Browns, and in the process, Dorsey and Freddie Kitchens are bringing some of the giants of yesteryear back to speak to the team. On Thursday night, the eve of rookie camp, Kitchens and Dorsey invited former Browns receiver Webster Slaughter, running backs Kevin Mack and Earnest Byner, quarterback Bernie Kosar, Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown and others to have dinner with the rookies and address them. Slaughter even stuck around to watch practice yesterday.
  • Undrafted WR Dorian Baker grew up a Browns fan, happy to ‘be a dawg’ at rookie minicamp ( - The number wasn’t lost on Dorian Baker. Of all of the players on the field at the team’s rookie minicamp, Baker had the best sense of what it meant to wear No. 19, so it made sense that he was the one wearing it. Of course Baker -- who grew up in Cleveland Heights and starred at Cleveland Heights High before landing at the University of Kentucky -- knew it was the number worn by Bernie Kosar, the Browns legend who was among a number of alums who addressed the rookies Thursday as they arrived in Berea.
