Browns | Jabaal Sheard excited about new role

Fri, 13 Jun 2014 11:16:19 -0700

Cleveland Browns LB Jabaal Sheard expects to play a similar role to what DE Mario Williams did in the Buffalo Bills defense last year with head coach Mike Pettine working with him. "With this scheme I'm a little bit more of a defensive end, so I get to rush a little bit more," Sheard said after practice in mandatory minicamp. … "More like Mario. They paid him a lot of money, so you know they got him going after the quarterback." Sheard thinks he could be heading into the best year of his career based on the way Pettine plans on using him. Sheard had played defensive end in a 4-3 system his entire life until last year. Sheard will remain an outside linebacker under Pettine, but he won't be used nearly as much in pass coverage.

Cleveland Browns LBs Paul Kruger, Barkevious Mingo and Jabaal Sheard all rotated in and out with the first-string defense during organized team activities (OTAs) Wednesday, May 21.

Browns | Wednesday practice report

Wed, 30 Oct 2013 14:11:29 -0700

Cleveland Browns LB Quentin Groves (ankle) and DE Billy Winn (quadriceps) were limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 30. RB Willis McGahee (knee), RB Chris Ogbonnaya (ribs), CB Christopher Owens (finger) and LB Jabaal Sheard (wrist) practiced in full.

Fantasy Tip: Expect both McGahee and Ogbonnaya to suit up in Week 9 against the Baltimore Ravens. However, both running backs are weak fantasy plays, especially against a tough Ravens run defense. McGahee's age is starting to show, and Fozzy Whittaker's opportunities are going up.

Browns | Barkevious Mingo not giving critics fodder

Tue, 30 Jul 2013 17:08:00 -0700

Cleveland Browns LB Barkevious Mingo is playing with the second team defense in training camp, and he has also worked on various special teams units. Mingo says he embraces and loves working on special teams. However, if there is one criticism, he needs to work on his pass rush moves. He lacks a strong secondary move at this point, and until he develops his pass rush ability and sharpens his coverage ability, LB Jabaal Sheard is expected to serve as a starter with Mingo coming in on pass-rush specific downs.

Browns | Jabaal Sheard thinks four OLBs can have impact

Thu, 23 May 2013 18:05:21 -0700

Cleveland Browns LB Jabaal Sheard said he believes he can be part of an impactful outside linebacker rotation with LB Barkevious Mingo, LB Paul Kruger and LB Quentin Groves this season. "It's a long game, and you're going to need a rotation throughout, and it's a long season as well," Sheard said. "So definitely we're going to need to share snaps and split it up amongst the four of us. You've got to stay healthy throughout the whole season, so I think that's going to play a big part in how our rotation works."

Browns | Jabaal Sheard prefers left side

Fri, 03 May 2013 20:28:20 -0700

Cleveland Browns LB Jabaal Sheard was uncomfortable lining up on the right side during his rookie season, and he was quickly moved to the left side. Even on the left side, he has struggled against the run in his first two seasons, so he might be better used on the strong side or teams could take advantage in the run game. As mentioned previously, if LB Barkevious Mingo catches on quickly, Sheard could be used in more of a rotation sub role off the bench.

Browns | Uncertain where Jabaal Sheard fits

Tue, 29 Jan 2013 18:35:33 -0800

Cleveland Browns defensive coordinator Ray Horton is uncertain where DE Jabaal Sheard will be used in the 3-4 defensive scheme, but he likes what he has seen on tape. Horton was asked if Sheard can play outside linebacker. "I would hope my answer would be, 'Let's not put limits on what players can and cannot do.' Jabaal is a guy that I have seen on film that can rush the quarterback and is athletic," Horton said. "What we are going to do as a coaching staff is put each one of our guys in the best position. He may be a strong safety some time, he can be a linebacker, he can be a (defensive) end."

Cleveland Browns DE Jabaal Sheard said he hopes the team keeps using the 4-3 defensive alignment but is willing to play a new position if the team switches to a 3-4 defensive alignment. "I would be [disappointed in a switch], because I like the 4-3 we're in, and it's a defense where I've been comfortable," said Sheard. "But I'm up for a challenge at any time. I want to show how athletic I am, and show that I can play multiple positions."
