Tuesday's Tryouts

The Browns told the media that they would be working out a number of players. We found out who...

On Monday, Browns head coach Romeo Crennel told reporters that the team was going to take a look at a number of players on the team's day off. The Browns, of course, did not say who they were.

The Orange and Brown Report has obtained the listing, and it raises some additional questions. 

What's interesting is that the one well-known player, Rosevelt Colvin, is the only defensive player that the team worked out. Given the team's problems with getting a pass rush out of their outside linebackers, the team's decision to look at Colvin isn't a surprise. They did not look at any defensive backs. 

On offense, the Browns looked at 12 players, including every offensive position other than center and fullback.  Missing on the list are veteran wide receivers, generally considered to be a need for the club. Joe Horn, Terry Glenn, and other available pass catchers weren't brought in to Berea, based on the information we have. 

Here's the list of players who the team worked out yesterday, exclusive for OBR subscribers:

Quarterbacks: Richard Bartel, Kyle Wright

Running Backs: Noah Herron, Dwayne Wright

Tight End: Aaron Walker

Wide Receivers:  LeRon McCoy, Marcus Monk, Courtney Roby

Offensive Linemen: Frank Davis, Travis Leffew (signed to practice squad yesterday), Tony Pape, Kurt Quarterman

Linebacker:  Rosevelt Colvin
