Browns begin mini-camp; all players in attendance

Phil Dawson was in camp today after skipping the voluntary portion of OTA’s. Pat Shurmur indicated that everyone has indeed reported for the mandatory mini-camp, and that there are plenty of reps to go around

“Shurmur feels there are enough reps during practice as well as the preseason for everyone regardless of position. He added that he is anticipating being able to distribute plays adequately between Trent Richardson, Montario Hardesty and Brandon Jackson.”

Over the weekend, Terry Pluto mentioned that he thought Hardesty’s spot on the team might be in jeopardy. It remains to be seen, but if Hardesty has any setbacks, it shouldn’t surprise Browns fans if they went in another direction.

    Can’t give up on Hardesty now after they have waited this long. Especially now that they have a legit person to share carries with him.

    We still really don’t know what we have in Hardesty and Jackson.  Could go from one of the worst to one of the best backfields this season.

    I hope they don’t give up on Hardesty. Sure he’s lost speed from the injuries… but he would make a great switch up for Trich. That or special teams. If anything, cut Brandon Jackson.

    Cut Brandon Jackson in favor of Montario Hardesty? No way. Jackson is a legitimate #2 NFL back and he has already proven that. What has Hardesty ever proven?

  • Natedawg86

    Why would we cut either Hardesty or Jackson?

    No idea they need as many bodies as they can get backing up TRich.  I guess people didn’t really pay attention last year huh?  Shocking!
