Player News - Browns

Date: Team: Pos:

Updating a previous item, Josh Gordon is scheduled to be a restricted free agent in 2017.

Due to his suspensions, Gordon's contract tolled -- "rolled over" -- and he's under the Browns' control for the next two seasons. It's notable because of Tuesday's trade rumor that popped up, as any acquiring team would consider it beneficial to have Gordon under control for not just 12 games.

Corey Coleman (hamstring) said he's "full go" and will play in the Browns' third preseason game Friday.

His latest hamstring issue is "officially over," per ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi. Coleman has been practicing for the past week, but did sit out the second preseason game. The third, classified as the regular-season dress rehearsal, is the most important. Coleman needs to keep his hammy healthy.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Browns are not looking to trade Josh Gordon.

The Browns' desire to keep Gordon has not stopped other teams from calling, however. Schefter reports "multiple teams" have reached out Cleveland to inquire about Gordon's availability. The Browns are not going to move the talented receiver right now, but it will be interesting to see what happens if Gordon somehow disappoints throughout the rest of camp.

Josh Gordon (suspended) is seeing work with the first-team offense during practice.

"It's important for him to be with the ones because I think he's going to be one of our better players," coach Hue Jackson said. "We have to put him out there and see what he is capable of doing." Seeing first-team work only days after returning to practice is a great sign for Gordon's role once he comes back from suspension. With Corey Coleman, Gordon, and Terrelle Pryor, the Browns have the makings of an explosive receiver group.

The Browns have moved Tramon Williams to slot corner.

Cleveland's nickel package is shaping up to field Joe Haden and Jamar Taylor on the outside with Williams inside. 33 years old, it's been a long while since Williams spent significant time covering slot receivers. He did so situationally early in his career with Green Bay. Due to the Browns' shortage of pass rush, there will be a lot of pressure placed on this cornerback trio.
Aug 21 - 7:38 PM

The Browns are giving Jamar Taylor a chance to win the starting job across from Joe Haden.

A talented 2013 second-round pick who couldn't stay healthy in Miami, Taylor is a reclamation project in Cleveland. He has won a job in nickel packages, and could earn a full-time first-team role with Tramon Williams moving into the slot. Across from Haden, Taylor will still be a corner to attack in DFS this year.
Aug 21 - 4:54 PM

Andrew Hawkins (hamstring) returned to Browns practice on Sunday.

He missed nearly three weeks with the strained hammy. Due to the emergence of Terrelle Pryor and Rashard Higgins behind Corey Coleman -- and eventually Josh Gordon -- it's not crazy to think Hawkins' roster spot is non-secure. We suspect Hawkins will still make the team due to his history with Hue Jackson.
Aug 21 - 2:50 PM

Browns signed WR Josh Boyce.

Dennis Parks was waived in the corresponding move. Boyce opened camp with the Colts but was waived last week. The former fourth-round pick hasn't played an NFL snap since 2014. It's a coin flip whether he survives the last round of cuts.
Aug 21 - 11:25 AM

Browns CB Jamar Taylor is expected to open the season in the slot.

Taylor has supplanted K’Waun Williams as Cleveland’s nickel corner. He was a disappointment in Miami, but has put together a strong preseason. ESPN’s Pat McManamon thinks Taylor could push Tramon Williams in base sets.

Browns coach Hue Jackson said Terrelle Pryor "continues to make strides" at wide receiver.

Pryor has been a stud during preseason play, hauling in three catches for 107 yards and one touchdown. He's shown impressive chemistry with Robert Griffin III on deep passes and could be the home run threat Cleveland lost when Travis Benjamin left in free agency. Pryor only secured one catch last year in his first season at wide receiver but looks poised for a much bigger role in 2016.
Aug 19 - 3:35 PM

Browns WR Terrelle Pryor caught a 50-yard touchdown in Thursday's preseason game against the Falcons.

Lined up against lockdown CB Desmond Trufant, Pryor played pitch and catch with Robert Griffin III down the right sideline, breaking free from Trufant to catch a bomb in stride. It was Pryor's only grab on two targets, but he now has three catches for 107 yards through two exhibition games. Pryor has not only sewn up a roster spot, but likely a Week 1 starting job.
Aug 18 - 10:43 PM

Robert Griffin III completed 6-of-8 passes for 96 yards and two touchdowns in the Browns' second preseason game against the Falcons.

He also managed 36 rushing yards on three scrambles. It couldn't have been a better night for RGIII. Early in the first quarter, Griffin uncorked a deep ball to Terrelle Pryor down the right sideline, and Pryor ran right by Falcons Pro Bowl LCB Desmond Trufant to haul in the 50-yard score. Later in the half, RGIII hit Gary Barnidge in stride on an out-and-up route in the front right corner of the end zone on a perfectly-placed ball. Griffin dropped dimes Thursday night. If he gets his confidence back, he'll offer some serious week-to-week streaming upside.
Aug 18 - 9:32 PM

Browns WR Corey Coleman (hamstring) is sitting out Thursday's preseason game.

Coleman returned to practice Monday, but the Browns aren't going to force the issue with their prize first-rounder. Barring a setback, Coleman will be ready for next week's regular season dress rehearsal.
Aug 18 - 1:13 PM

Suspended Browns CB K'Waun Williams needs surgery to remove bone chips from his ankle.

Williams was suspended two weeks after he scratched himself from Saturday's preseason game, but a second opinion revealed his ankle injury is more serious than initially thought. Williams plans to appeal his suspension. It's not clear how this impacts his status with the Browns or how much time he'll miss. With Williams injured/suspended, Jamar Taylor should open the season in the slot.
Aug 17 - 6:47 PM

Browns suspend CB K'Waun Williams two weeks for conduct detrimental to the team.

It's a very odd situation. Williams injured his ankle -- so he says -- in the Browns' team scrimmage two Fridays ago. He determined the ankle was too injured to play in Saturday's preseason opener, and scratched himself from the game. But the Browns believed Williams was well enough to play, and classified his scratch as a "personal reason." Some in the organization thought Williams was retiring, but he's left the team to get an outside opinion on the ankle. On top of the two-week ban, the Browns also fined Williams one game check. The Browns' nickel corner the past two seasons, Williams may lose his job to Jamar Taylor.
