  Browns | Two sitting    Mon Jul 28, 10:08 AM

Cleveland Browns WRs Charles X. Johnson (knee) and Travis Benjamin (knee) are riding the stationary bike and working on the side Monday, July 28.

Footballguys view: Johnson has outstanding measureables, but he is coming back from a torn ACL. One beat writer wrote that he has been a "revelation", so he is worth watching in a wide receiver corps that is going to be wide open without Josh Gordon this year.

  Browns | Brian Hoyer to wear brace    Sat Jul 26, 11:51 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer (knee) said he will wear a brace on his surgically repaired knee during the entire season. He said he does not believe it will affect his play much.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Hoyer worked well as the team's starter last year, but he missed most of the season with a knee injury. Wearing a brace to protect his knee is just the best move for Hoyer and the team.

  Browns | Brian Hoyer only one to work with starters    Sat Jul 26, 11:50 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer received all of the snaps with the first-team offense during practice Saturday, July 26.

Footballguys view: Hoyer is competing with rookie Johnny Manziel to be the team's starter this year. He has to be considered the frontrunner, and we think he'll win the starting job to begin the season. If he falters, then Manziel could replace him at some point during the year.

  Browns | Nate Burleson practicing    Sat Jul 26, 10:15 AM

Cleveland Browns WR Nate Burleson (arm) is participating in practice Saturday, July 26.

Footballguys view: Burleson could be in for a sizable role with the team if he can stay healthy. Without Josh Gordon, the Browns are going to be relying on guys like Burles, Andrew Hawkins and Miles Austin to be primary targets at the wide receiver position.

Cleveland Browns WR Miles Austin (hamstring) is participating in practice Saturday, July 26.

Footballguys view: Austin still has talent, but he's always banged up. We'll see if he can stay healthy and make an impression on the field for the Browns. The opportunity is there for him to play a large role as Josh Gordon is likely to be suspended.

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer (knee) is still wearing a knee brace in practice Saturday, July 26.

Footballguys view: Hoyer is likely to wear a knee brace for some time. He's competing for the starting job with rookie Johnny Manziel. Hoyer is considered the favorite at this time as he has the experience edge over the rookie.

  Browns | Johnny Manziel acknowledges mistakes    Fri Jul 25, 06:44 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel said Friday, July 25, at his training camp press conference that he has met with team officials to discuss his off-the-field issues and admitted he made some mistakes. He said everyone involved is now on the same page.

Footballguys view: Manziel has clearly worried the team but according to the team he has done a good job learning the playbook. While not impossible for him to win the job, he is likely to begin the season as a backup. We do expect him to get a shot later in the season, though. If you have a roster spot, Manziel's scrambling and playmaking ability could make him a possible fantasy factor late in the season. But only do it if you have plenty of roster space as he may not pay off for quite some time, if he does at all.

  Browns | Alarmed with Johnny Manziel's behavior?    Fri Jul 25, 06:41 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel's off-the-field behavior reportedly has alarmed members of Cleveland's brass. Photos of Manziel rolling a $20 bill in a bathroom of a bar caught the attention of head coach Mike Pettine. Manziel regressed in practice after the first week of organized team activities, leading Pettine to call out Manziel's dedication to learning the offense.

Footballguys view: Despite this report, Cabot later tweeted out that coach Mike Pettine says "he's ahead" of where they expected in learning the playbook. Whether that is a coach just backing his player or not, Cleveland's training camp is every bit as intriguing as we expected it to be.

  Browns | Brian Hoyer likely to start preseason opener    Fri Jul 25, 06:34 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer (knee) is expected to start the preseason opener, barring any setbacks, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Footballguys view: As expected, especially considering the report by Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com that the team is very concerned with Manziel's off-field issues. At the same point, reports have put Manziel ahead of expectations in terms of playbook knowledge so there is still plenty of time for Manziel to grab the job. We expect Hoyer to win out though, but Manziel to get a look later in the season. Manziel might be worth a stash on the end of your bench just in case but don't expect a payoff early and in the case of Hoyer, we don't expect him to be a viable fantasy quarterback at all.

  Browns | Gary Barnidge helped off by trainers    Fri Jul 25, 05:11 PM

Cleveland Browns TE Gary Barnidge (undisclosed) was helped off the field by trainers during the team's conditioning test Friday, July 25.

Footballguys view: We'll keep an eye on this because we know you love to know everything but Barnidge is mostly a special teams guy an contributes little to the offense. So you know he's unlikely to contribute to your fantasy squad.

  Browns | Phil Taylor does not finish conditioning test    Fri Jul 25, 05:11 PM

Cleveland Browns DT Phil Taylor did not finish his conditioning test Friday, July 25.

Footballguys view: Of course, this is better than what Safety Donte Whitner accomplished when he did a somersault to end his run and ended up needing to be helped by the training staff. Taylor is a solid run-stopper but isn't on the field most passing downs. This isn't a good sign that he's set for a great year.

  Browns | Four players back on active roster    Thu Jul 24, 04:22 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Terrance West (undisclosed), DT Jacobbi McDaniel (undisclosed), OG Jeremiah Warren and OL Chris Faulk (undisclosed) returned to the team's active roster Thursday, July 24.

Footballguys view: The West situation was curious to say the least. He began camp on the NFI list, but now he's back and ready to go. The rookie is going to compete with veteran Ben Tate to be the lead back for the Browns in 2014.

  Browns | Josh Gordon to appeal Aug. 1    Thu Jul 24, 08:20 AM

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will have his appeal hearing for his one-year suspension Aug. 1.

Footballguys view: Somehow it is still theoretically possible that Gordon is not suspended for the entire season, but his latest arrest makes it seem very unlikely. The probable best case scenario here is that Gordon gets back on the field in 2015.

  Browns | Johnny Manziel needs more dedication    Wed Jul 23, 10:14 PM

Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine thinks QB Johnny Manziel needs to increase dedication to earn the starting job. 'I think he knows that in order to compete well, he's going to have to probably be more dedicated than ever.'

Footballguys view: In other news, water is wet. Manziel likes to party, and he certainly enjoys the celebrity of being "Johnny Football." In order to be the best pro he can be, Manziel will have to prove that he's willing to work during his "off" time. All signs point to Brian Hoyer winning the starting job in training camp. We're certainly going to see Manziel have some highlight plays on Sportscenter, but the Browns might choose to keep him on the bench to start his pro career.

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns RB Terrance West (undisclosed) said on his Twitter page that he passed his conditioning test and people need to 'stop making up your own stories.' Per the NFL's official transaction log, West was indeed placed on the non-football injury list.


  Browns | Terrance West on NFI list    Wed Jul 23, 05:32 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Terrance West (undisclosed) will begin training camp on the non-football injury list, according to a source.

Footballguys view: West reportedly passed his conditioning test, and he's set to practice on Friday. He'll end up competing with Ben Tate to be the team's starting running back in 2014.

  Browns | Justin Gilbert agrees to terms    Wed Jul 23, 01:41 PM

The Cleveland Browns have agreed to terms with first-round draft choice CB Justin Gilbert, according to sources. Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but all contracts signed by draft picks are four-year contracts, according to NFL rules.

Footballguys view: Gilbert was one of the best cornerbacks coming into the NFL this year. He has a fine size/speed combination and he plays with an aggressive style. Gilbert can be a great starter for the Browns opposite Joe Haden.

  Browns | Ben Tate, Terrance West might be great battle    Wed Jul 23, 01:02 AM

Cleveland Browns RBs Ben Tate and Terrance West will compete for the starting tailback job during training camp and the preseason, and it's a battle head coach Mike Pettine is looking forward to. 'And the best competition might be Ben Tate and our guy (Terrance West) from Towson, who I really like,' Pettine said Tuesday, July 22.

Footballguys view: Watch this competition unfold in training camp. Tate was added in free agency after spending the start of his pro career as a talented backup behind Arian Foster in Houston. West was a third-round pick this year, and the big back produced in college at Towson. The Browns also added talented UDFA Isaiah Crowell (Alabama State, Georgia transfer) after the draft. Running back talent is not a problem for Cleveland.

  Browns | Backup TE job up for grabs    Wed Jul 23, 01:01 AM

Cleveland Browns TEs Gary Barnidge and Jim Dray will battle for the No. 2 tight end spot during training camp and the preseason.

Footballguys view: The TE2 in Cleveland won't get much work unless Jordan Cameron goes down with an injury. Even if they get more playing time, there's not much fantasy value in either player.

Cleveland Browns CBs Justin Gilbert and Buster Skrine will compete for the starting cornerback job opposite CB Joe Haden in training camp. 'We weren't going to hand Justin that spot,' head coach Mike Pettine said Tuesday, July 22.

Footballguys view: Gilbert is a talented rookie added in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft. He has a great size/speed combination and he plays with an aggressive style. We like Gilbert as an eventual starter--and nice fit--opposite Haden.
