"Hue Jackson isn’t worried about how Joe Haden suffered a setback during his offseason conditioning and doesn’t see the need to put a timetable on when he expects the Pro Bowl defensive back to return to the field. All Jackson knows is what he’s seen through the first four days of offseason workouts, and that’s been more than enough to amplify his excitement about the future he and Haden will share together."

"Hue Jackson will win more press conferences than games in his first year as Browns coach. Head coach. Face of the franchise. De facto offensive coordinator. Quarterback sensei. Pro-day attendee.
