Browns | Three New Linemen Join Two Old Lineman to Make a Revamped Line

Sun, 17 Jul 2005 21:30:53 -0700

Steve King, of ClevelandBrowns.com, reports the Cleveland Browns are excited about their new, revamped offensive line. Newcomers are expected to take over three starting spots with OT L.J. Shelton starting at left tackle, OG Joe Andruzzi starting at left guard and OG Cosey Coleman starting at right guard. Holdover C Jeff Faine should start at center and incumbent OT Ryan Tucker is back again at right tackle. Andruzzi and Coleman offer, by far, the best combination of talent and experience the Browns have had with their guard tandem since the team's return to the league. The only issue with all these new players is their developing the chemistry that an offensive line so desperately needs to be successful. With their intent to run the ball and use a short, controlled passing game to eat time off the clock, it's essential the line play well as the Browns try to get back on track.
