The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports Cleveland Browns director of football operations Dwight Clark said the team doesn't appear to have a dominate running back right now. RBs Errict Rhett, Travis Prentice, James Jackson and Jamel White are all trying to stick out and become the team's featured back. If none do, the committee approach is expected. Clark said he likes the way Jackson talks and runs low to the ground, so he'll be rooting for him. He feels Prentice has become bigger and stronger and noted Rhett, who's not 100% recovered from a foot injury, showed some flashes of old.
Wed, 13 Jun 2001 13:08:43 -0700

Mon, 07 May 2001 04:35:23 -0700

ClevelandBrowns.com reports the Cleveland Browns running back situation for the upcoming season remains a bit cloudy now that RB Curtis Enis has retired.

The team also can throw RB James Jackson, a rookie, into the mix this year, too.
Sun, 29 Apr 2001 14:00:07 -0700
Tony Grossi reports for the Plain Dealer a key ingredient for the RB that will start for the Cleveland Browns in offensive coordinator Bruce Arians' scheme is the ability to catch the ball. Sixty catches a season out of Arians' starting back might be the norm. That is one reason the team reportedly prefered Deuce McAllister over LaDainian Tomlinson in the NFL Draft. It may be another factor in them not pursuing Bengals free agent RB Corey Dillon. Dillon has averaged only 26 catches a year for the Bengals. One back who fits the mold they are seeking is Ricky Watters who averages 51 catches a season. If no running back is added, the contenders for the starting position in training camp will be Errict Rhett, Travis Prentice and rookie James Jackson. Prentice did have 37 catches last season. Rhett's career high is 24.
Wed, 11 Apr 2001 09:38:54 -0700
The Beacon Journal reports Cleveland Browns coach Butch Davis is happy with the play of CB Corey Fuller, calling him "one of the best cover corners in the NFL." Davis was also happy with the catching abilities of WR Darrin Chiaverini and RB Travis Prentice. RB Errict Rhett continues his rehab from his foot injury. The Browns hope, but aren't sure, that he'll be ready for the June mini-camp. "This isn't a football injury," Rhett said at yesterday's minicamp. "It's a falling-off-a-horse-injury, a car-accident injury." If he's healthy, the team might feel a little more comfortable going to training camp with a group of Rhett, Curtis Enis, Travis Prentice and mini-camp standout Jamel White. If Rhett is not healthy, they may need to add to the position via free agency or the NFL Draft.
Tue, 10 Apr 2001 10:07:45 -0700
The Canton Repository reports both Cleveland Browns QB Tim Couch and RB Errict Rhett said it has become clear to them changing head coaches was a good idea. Both pointed to locker room division last season as one big reason a change was needed. S Percy Ellsworth’s starting free safety job is in jeopardy after he made just one interception in 16 starts last year. He acknowledged he had a poor season in 2000, but the he will play better this season. He said he felt sorry for former coach Chris Palmer, who was fired. DE Keith McKenzie knows there is a strong possibility he will go back to the passing-down role he had with the Packers. Courtney Brown will be one starter at defensive end and Stalin Colinet could join him in the starting lineup. Coach Butch Davis said MLB Wali Rainer practiced well on Monday.
Tue, 10 Apr 2001 03:19:10 -0700
Jeff Schudel reports for the Morning Journal Cleveland Browns QB Ty Detmer strained his left hamstring on the final play of the morning practice of Monday's mini-camp. He was able to return for the afternoon session. G Jeremy McKinney sustained a slight knee injury in the morning and did not practice in the afternoon. As expected neither RB Errict Rhett nor OL Ross Verba praticed during either session. Neither is expected to practice all week. DT Orpheus Roye is up 12 pounds to 315. In addition to the previously reported use of DE Courtney Brown on the right side of the defensive line, Keith McKenzie, the right end last season, lined up at left end with the first team yesterday.

Zac Jackson of the Cleveland Browns official site reports the team will hold the first of three off-season mini-camps starting next week. Players will go through two-a-day practices on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, April 9-11. Other mini-camps will be held May 4-6 and June 12-14. Coach Butch Davis said 10-12 players will be limited at the first mini-camp due to injuries. RB Errict Rhett recently had the pins removed from his broken foot but isn't expected to be back and running for 2-3 weeks. Both QB Tim Couch and WR JaJuan Dawson look to be 100 percent and both should participate fully in the mini-camp.
Wed, 07 Mar 2001 11:29:42 -0800
According to the Canton Repository, agent Gene Mato said yesterday Cleveland Browns RB Errict Rhett "plans to be the Browns starting running back." Mato said Rhett is doing great with his rehab from last season's foot injury. The Browns say Rhett’s foot might not be far enough along for him to participate in a pre-draft mini-camp next month. Mato said he may be ready. The team has either discussed or brought in several free agents. The NFL Draft also remains an option. For now, Priest Holmes (Ravens) is said to be at the top of their list. He and Rhett played together with the Ravens in the past. Mato said, no problem with that because "Errict and Priest got along fine. They’re good friends."
Tue, 06 Mar 2001 03:37:49 -0800
Jeff Schudel reports for the News-Herald free agent LBs Twan Russell (Dolphins) and Darrin Smith (Saints) concluded their visits to Cleveland and both left town without signing contracts. The Browns would not confirm earlier reports RB Curtis Enis, released by the Bears, is visiting the team later this week. As previously reported, free agent RB Priest Holmes (Ravens) was in Cleveland for a visit earlier today. The fact they're closely at Holmes is an indication they are not 100 percent sure how Errict Rhett will come back from his foot injury.
Sun, 18 Feb 2001 11:19:56 -0800
Patrick McManamon reports for the Beacon Journal many of the Cleveland Browns injured players from the 2000 season are rehabbing just fine. "Everybody is ahead of schedule," Director of Football Operations Dwight Clark said. QB Tim Couch (thumb) has been throwing for two weeks while his backup Ty Detmer (Achilles') should be ready for mini-camp. OC Jim Pyne (knee) may not be ready for the first mini-camp but will return in time for later mini-camps. Only Errict Rhett (foot), despite doing great in his rehab, is a concern for the team. His type of injury takes a while to come back from and he is going to have the screws removed from his surgically repaired right foot in March. As previously reported he'll be limited for a bit after that.
Sat, 17 Feb 2001 10:18:48 -0800
The Beacon Journal reports, as a follow up to an ongoing storyline, the Cleveland Browns continue to look closely at their RB situation. Last year's starter for the first five games before he was injured, Errict Rhett, is doing great in his rehab according to director of football operations Dwight Clark. The problem is he won't have the screws out of his foot until March and then he won't practice for at least a month after that. Last year's other key RB, Travis Prentice fits more of a role as a third-down back. That leaves the Browns pondering the free agent market. As previously reported there is some interest in Charlie Garner, but also some doubts he can be the every down back they are looking for. The NFL Draft may not get them the RB they seek either. Where does it all lead? To deciding on whether or not to go after the Bengals Corey Dillon. We'll all know the answer by March 2.
Sun, 31 Dec 2000 16:36:35 -0800
Jeff Schudel reports for the News-Herald Cleveland Browns director of football operations Dwight Clark and current coach Chris Palmer have begun to look at the team's needs for the 2001 season. They would like to get bigger on the offensive line and defensive line and find someone better than Errict Rhett to carry the ball, although Palmer keeps saying he likes Rhett. The Browns are looking for guys that can cause an immediate positive impact to the team. The Browns have about $10 million to spend on free agency. RB Corey Dillon is expected to be a target if the Bengals don't re-sign him. As reported earlier the Browns pick third in the upcoming NFL draft and if Clark gets his wish, he will not stay in that third slot. The Seattle Seahawks pick seventh and 10th in the first round and are the only team with multiple first-round picks, as of today.

The Baltimore Sun reports that RB Priest Holmes and CB DeRon Jenkins are the only two Ravens not to accept their tender offers. The Ravens have offered him the standard one-year, $325,000 offer to Holmes which reportedly would make him the lowest-paid starting running back in the league and the lowest-paid of any runner who had more than 1,000 yards rushing last year. Holmes, despite that fact, has no plans to holdout. The team and his agent have had some discussions around a long term contract, but the Ravens would like to see him have one more impressive year before they do so. "If he has another year comparable to last year, we'll enter into a long-term agreement, the same way we did with Jermaine Lewis," said Ravens VP Ozzie Newsome. "He has shown the ability we ask of our running backs. He can run inside, outside and pass protect." Currently it looks lilke Holmes could wind up the starter with Jay Graham and Steve Broussard playing third downs with Errict Rhett as the short yardage back.
Fri, 05 Mar 1999 10:25:00 -0800

Tue, 16 Feb 1999 03:00:00 -0800
The Baltimore Sun reports new head coach Brian Billick has stated he'd like to try and keep RB Errict Rhett. Rhett would then compete for the starting job, but Billick feels he'd be more valuable in the same role that RB Leroy Hoard is used as in Minnesota.
