Cleveland Browns News: Things get heated at camp


The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including things getting heated during Sunday’s training camp practices

It’s not uncommon to see fights break out in training camp as things get heated when the pads come on and players start to go at it. However, it is unusual to see it take the turn that it did for the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

During their fourth day of camp, second-year defensive end Chad Thomas got into an altercation with tight end Pharaoh Brown which led to punches being thrown. The first fight wasn’t the issue, but it was what happened afterward.

Thomas and Brown’s fight led to head coach Freddie Kitchens made the team run sprints. During these gassers, Thomas took some heckling from the crowd which led to him sending a one-finger salute to the crowd.

Some veterans plan to pull Thomas aside and speak to him about the gaffe, which should blow over in time. That story and more can be found in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.

Chad Thomas flips off a fan at Browns camp, and Sheldon Richardson and Larry Ogunjobi will encourage him to apologize — Mary Kay Cabot,

"“Chad Thomas as you guys see, he’s a very emotional, a passionate guy,’’ he said. “I want those guys to play with passion, but he’s also a young guy, so he has to understand and develop a sense of when to move on. I think he’ll learn. That’s a great learning experience for Chad.”"

Thomas struggled as a rookie to stay healthy and get on the field. Fans may be harder on him than others due to this but he needs to let his play quiet the haters rather than let it get under his skin. It wouldn’t be shocking to see a public apology released soon, especially with veterans willing to speak to the young man.
