Browns | Want Marcus Benard to drop weight

The Cleveland Browns coaching staff was surprising to see LB Marcus Benard report to camp 25 pounds heavier than his 2010 playing weight of 256. Head coach Pat Shurmur said after practice Monday, Aug. 8, that Benard needs to get in better condition. Benard said he added the weight when he learned the club intended to move him from outside linebacker to end in the new 4-3 defense. It appears this was a lack of communication due to the lockout.
