But when you get tired of losing, it starts eating at your soul. I can see that light at the end of the tunnel for me. Football is not forever, and I'd rather be with a team that knows what's best to do, and that's what coach Shanahan does." He added, "Now I'm here in Denver, where it's beautiful; I love it. The weather is always nice. It's not cloudy; it's not raining. The whole atmosphere is different. Nothing against Cleveland, they have great fans and everything, and I know Denver does, also, but it's just the atmosphere."

Sat, 04 Jun 2005 18:07:17 -0700
Patrick McManamon, of the Akron Beacon Journal reports Cleveland Browns LB Kenard Lang is scheduled to earn $3.7 million this year and $4.5 million in 2006. He is in the process of transitioning from defensive end to linebacker in the team's new 3-4 defense. If Lang doesn't start at linebacker and he can't play end in a 3-4, it's worth wondering if the team will carry him at that salary. "If I'm meant to be here, I'll be here," Lang said. Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham said Lang will have a role whether he adjusts to the position switch or he doesn't. Lang is listed at 280 pounds by the team, but Grantham said he's closer to 260.

Jeff Walcoff, of ClevelandBrowns.com, reports Cleveland Browns LB Kenard Lang is slowly adjusting to his new role of outside linebacker in the team's 3-4 scheme. For Lang, the most intriguing part about the move from down lineman to linebacker will be covering backs out of the backfield, he said. "If (a running back) turns up field, I have to run with him," Lang said. "If that's the case, I'll be darned if I get beat for a touchdown. I'll shove him in the water cooler before he beats me for seven any day. I'll take that penalty." So far, the team's coaching staff says Lang has looked good in his new spot.

"You want to get him to a point where there's a comfort level in terms of his assignments, then see where his reactions are and how he plays out in space."
Mon, 25 Apr 2005 12:47:55 -0700

"Obviously, we would like to add some depth to the defensive line and at outside and inside linebacker," Savage said. "And obviously, if it were an outside linebacker, that might help us with our pass rush. Right now, Kenard Lang would be our pre-eminent rusher." Prospects that could interest the Browns, especially after trading down, include DE/LB Shawne Merriman (Maryland), OLB DeMarcus Ware (Troy State) and DE David Pollack (Georgia).

"It's all fun and humor, but personally on that first play I'd get a flag," Lang said. "I'd jump on him. Not saying to hurt him or nothing, but to let him know that this is how I eat, this is my game, this is how I live. Point blank. . .It's all fun and all, but say hypothetically speaking he does well. Everybody would be laughing at you. 'Oh he sent you Pepto Bismol and he still whipped your butt?' No, that ain't happening."
