  • Yahoo! Sports – Montario Hardesty expected back by training camp – One asset the Cleveland Browns didn't have last year was a complementary big back to work in tandem with bruiser Peyton Hillis. That's because Montario Hardesty's(notes) rookie season was wiped out by a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Now, Hardesty is expected back by training camp on a fully-operational basis.
  • Fox Sports Ohio – Haden’s latest? Picking up the tab – Haden's latest goodwill gesture hit Twitter Tuesday afternoon. Haden invited fans to Sushi Rock in Beachwood at 4:15 for what he called "lunch."
  • ESPN.com Lockout: Sources reveal details of proposed NFL CBA – Among the details NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is revealing to owners Tuesday at the owners' meeting in Rosemont, Ill., is that in the next proposed agreement players will receive a 48 percent share of "all revenue," without the $1-billion-plus credit off the top that had been a point of contention in earlier negotiations, according to sources familiar with the presentation.
  • ClevelandLeader.com – Cleveland Browns May Be Interested in Terrelle Pryor – Former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor, who recently announced that he would not be returning to OSU, may be staying in the state after all. A report by the Plain Dealer suggests that the Cleveland Browns may be interested in him.

Be Wary of Pryor Headlines
Don Delco on June 21st, 2011 AT 11:55 AM

These here interwebs will have you believe today that the Cleveland Browns are going after Terrelle Pryor.

Headline after headline leads you to believe there is something brewing…

“Browns EXPLORING Pryor…”

“Browns INTERESTED in Pryor…”

“Browns LOOKING INTO Pryor…”

Is it a foregone conclusion that the former Ohio State quarterback is coming to Cleveland in the supplemental draft? Of course not. Yet wouldn’t you expect an NFL team to “look into” or “explore” any potential player? I’d hope so. It’s called scouting.

So take these headlines with a grain of salt and it is highly unlikely that old No. 2 Browns jersey you have will once again be useful.
