Browns Announce Rookie Camp Roster

The Browns have announced the names of players who will be attending this weekend's rookie mini-camp. Here is our preliminary listing, which will be refined with player profiles and Hot News throughout the afternoon.

Here are the players who have been invited to the Browns 2003 rookie mini-camp, according to a press release from the Cleveland Browns.

Let the record show that had correctly identified 19 of the 22 players who are undrafted rookie free agents, and three of the players getting tryouts.

As we suggested was possible in earlier reports, there appear to have been two false reports in the press of contracts with the Browns (Gabriel Reid, Elgin Andrews) as well a player who visited Berea last week (Cornelius Green) but is not attending camp. We will have more details on as they become available.
