Browns | Christian Kirksey pushing for starting job

Wed, 06 Aug 2014 18:23:29 -0700

Cleveland Browns LB Christian Kirksey is drawing praise from his head coach early on in training camp. "He's been great," head coach Mike Pettine said Wednesday, Aug. 6. "If you were just an observer at practice and didn't have a roster, you wouldn't think he was a rookie. He's great on the practice field. He asks the right questions. He's been very engaging in the meeting rooms." Kirksey is pushing LB Craig Robertson for the starting spot next to LB Karlos Dansby. Even if Kirksey doesn't win the starting job, he might open the season in the nickel package due to his coverage skills.
