The Associated Press reports the Cleveland Browns continue to talk with rookie DT Gerard Warren, but it appears unlikely he'll report Friday when the team begins two-a-day practices with its full roster. "I can't say if he will be here or not," coach Butch Davis said Thursday. Davis said the team has "talked about the possibility of concessions." Joel Segal, Warren's agent, would only confirm that negotiations are continuing. Davis said either Orpheus Roye or Marcus Spriggs would move up on the depth chart until Warren signs.

Browns | Agility Vs. Bigness

Mon, 16 Apr 2001 11:38:28 -0700

Tony Grossi reports for the Plain Dealer Cleveland Browns director of football operations Dwight Clark had visioned the team adding a couple of defensive tackles along the lines of Tony Siragusa and Sam Adams of the Baltimore Ravens, big guys who can clog the middle. Coach Butch Davis arrived and plans changed. Davis does not like his linemen in the 350-pound range. Davis liked what he saw at defensive tackle at the team's first mini-camp. According to Davis, "Orpheus Roye weighed 318 [up from 290]. Mark Smith was 322 [up from 294 with Arizona]. Marcus Spriggs was in the 320s. Darius Holland was probably 320." Davis does not believe he needs to add significant size inside to improve the team's defense against the rush. Speed at linebacker, namely Dwayne Rudd, will help against that problem. Changing the defensive scheme to move away from the "two-gap" system will help as well.

Browns | News & Notes

Thu, 12 Apr 2001 10:24:29 -0700

The Canton Repository reports the consensus is LB Dwayne Rudd and RB Jamel White were the defensive and offensive stars of the Cleveland Browns recently concluded mini-camp. Coach Butch Davis said he did not think there was one drill where Rudd "didn't get his hands on a ball or gotten an interception. You talk about team defensive speed. That's a huge upgrade." For the Browns he is expected to lineup at their 'will' linebacker position (weakside). Davis also been impressed with the defensive line. He said DT Mark Smith has "done some really, really special things." Davis has also been impressed by DL Marcus Spriggs. Davis said he will keep five to seven players who will do little except play special teams.

Zac Jackson reports for the team's official site the Cleveland Browns wrapped up their three-day mini-camp earlier today. RB Jamel White continues to earn the praise of coach Butch Davis.

Davis reiterated his pleasure with CB Corey Fuller's coverage skills and RB Travis Prentice's hands. The team signed street free agent LB Michael Smith.
