Browns Off-Season Program Schedule Announced


The Cleveland Browns off-season has been full of intrigue. Johnny Manziel, Josh Gordon, Text-gate, logo change, new uniforms, Free Agency and soon the NFL Draft. Not all of that has been bad for the team.

  • Manziel needed the help he is getting in rehab.
  • Gordon’s attitude was bad last year, maybe this time is an eye opener.
  • The Browns didn’t lose any picks related to Text-gate.
  • The logo wasn’t hideous, even if it was underwhelming.
  • The team signed 5 possible starters in Free Agency.
  • The Browns have 10 picks to upgrade their team and a good draft class to pick from.

Today the team announced their off-season workout program schedule:

Nothing shocking there. Players can start working out on the 20th. The Browns will get a look at Josh McCown, Brian Hartline, Dwayne Bowe, Randy Starks and Tramon Williams for the first time in their facilities working. It will be good to get some of the numerous young players back into the program.

OTAs will give the rookies a chance to work with the veterans and coaches. That will be the first time fans can get an idea of what the roster is going to look like.

Like Training Camp, all of this will take place in Berea. In the future the Browns may move Training Camp but are unlikely to move these programs.

For fans that means that the slowest time for the team will be the 3 weeks between the draft and OTAs. That will give plenty of time to get excited for the Draft class and start thinking about what is possible for the upcoming season. Anyone else feel like the NFL season never really ends? Everyone okay with that?

How important do you think these Off-season programs are for the Browns?
