Camp: Evening Practice Notes

Here are some notes from Friday evening's practice, provided by our gang in Berea...


The Browns looked better on Friday than during their sluggish performance in the tropical conditions on Thursday afternoon.

Here are some notes from the evening practice. We didn't have a good place to put these, so we'll toss 'em all together into an article:

  • Players did not wear pads in the evening practice. Such structure automatically gives the advantage to the offense, because the defensive players cannot knock anybody around.
  • Trent Dilfer showed a side he hadn't shown often when he rolled to his right and threw a pass to wide open Aaron Shea.
  • Josh Harris hit rookie receiver Brandon Rideau on a pass down the middle. Rideau, who continues to impress the coaches, streaked toward the end zone.
  • Another pass thrown by Harris was not as successful. He threw deep to Richard Alston who was wide open crossing the goal line, but Harris overthrew him. Rookie Antonio Perkins had coverage on the play.
  • The defense did have one highlight when Michael Jameson broke up a pass to Frisman Jackson.
  • Antonio Bryant did not practice in the afternoon. A Browns spokesman said Coach Romeo Crennel excused him for personal reasons.
  • Players whooped at the end of practice because Crennel let them off with one wind sprint, a reward for a good day's work.
