News And Notes - June 3rd OTAS


Recommended Posts



CLEVELAND -- Observations and notes from the third week of organized team activites:


* Running back Jerome Harrison was on hand for the first time during a session open to the media, and looks like he picked up right where he left off when he rushed for 561 yards in the final three games of the season. He caught plenty of passes out of the backfield from Jake Delhomme. But Harrison, who has yet to sign his tender, is currently playing behind rookie running back Montario Hardesty. None of the other RFAs were present. They are D'Qwell Jackson, Matt Roth, Abe Elam and Lawrence Vickers.


* The defense broke up a lot of passes and also batted a lot down during the 90 minutes open to the media. Eric Wright broke up a deep ball from Delhomme to Chansi Stuckey and defensive back Ramzee Robinson swatted down a Colt McCoy pass. Titus Brown penetrated to bat down a Seneca Wallace pass at the line of scrimmage. Cornerback Brandon McDonald broke up a pass in the end zone from Wallace to Johnathan Haggerty.


* In red zone drills, tight end Evan Moore beat Scott Fujita and Jason Trusnik on a TD catch just inside the goal-line from Delhomme. Rookie receiver Carlton Mitchell also beat fellow rookie Matt Harris on a post-route for a TD catch from Brett Ratliff.


* The Browns have been rotating starting safeties, and today, the first-teamers were rookie T.J. Ward and Ray Ventrone.


* The Browns signed receiver James Robinson and and waived receiver Dion Morton. Originally signed by the Dolphins as a free agent out of Butler County Community College in Kansas, Robinson (6-3, 200) spent time on the Dolphins', Browns', and Redskins' practice squads last season.


* Several players were excused from OTAs today, including running back Peyton Hillis and tight end Alex Smith. The injured players are still idle, including Shaun Rogers, Dave Zastudil and Eric Barton. Rookie Cliff Geathers spent time on the bike today.
