Browns | Frye will be allowed to audible

Sat, 04 Nov 2006 07:30:48 -0800

Mary Kay Cabot, of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, reports Cleveland Browns QB Charlie Frye will be permitted more freedom under the team's new offensive coordinator, Jeff Davidson. Frye will be allowed to call audibles more frequently during games. "What I've told (Frye) is that whether he's in the huddle or taking a snap from center, he's our coach on the field," Davidson said. "Once he enters the huddle, he's the only one that talks and that's the way our offense wants it to be. I think that's important. He's the guy that controls everything on the play, whether it's an exchange with the halfback or throwing the ball downfield."
