It started last month with “Camp Colt”, an opportunity for Browns players to work out together at the University of Texas. It was organized by quarterback Colt McCoy and was meant to keep the team sharp during the lockout and to prepare for the season without actual organized team activities.
Today, the Browns began their second “minicamp” at Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea. A dozen offensive players attended the first camp to learn the West Coast offense from McCoy, who received the playbook from the Browns coaching staff months ago. For this second camp, McCoy has invited the team’s draft picks.
With Saints running back Reggie Bush tweeting that he enjoys the time off and is using the lockout to “relax”, it’s great to see the Browns’ offense making an effort to not only get a leg up on the playbook, but to take the time to create the necessary bond of successful teams.
Other people have a different idea about these workouts, citing potential injuries as a concern. What do you think? Do you like seeing the players take this initiative to work out on their own during this lockout?
