 Browns:“Hue Jackson tells players to ‘be smart’ during first break of training camp” (ABJ) - “Jackson gathered his players on the field Monday at the end of the fifth practice of training camp and offered advice that could be interpreted as a warning.”“Carlos Hyde wants to be a 1 [url=http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-baker-mayfield-jersey]http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-baker-mayfield-jersey[/url] ,000-yard rusher and lead the NFL in rushing yards in 2018” (WFNY) - “This is coming from a guy who has yet to rush for 1,000 yards in a season through his first four years in the NFL.”“Josh Gordon breaking ankles in Gainesville” (247Sports) - “During his time away from the Cleveland Browns, wide receiver Josh Gordon has been working with former Olympic sprinter Tim Montgomery as part of N.U.M.A. Speed in Gainesville, Florida.”“Tim Couch, another No. 1 pick, offers advice to Baker Mayfield: Patience” (C-T) - “Tim Couch’s advice to Baker Mayfield is simple: Be patient. He could’ve said: Be careful what you wish for.”NFL:“Saints signing Michael Floyd, Brandon Tate” (PFT) - “New Orleans was in need of depth at the position after Travin Dural broke a humerus [url=http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-denzel-ward-jersey]Denzel Ward Jersey[/url] , and Brandon Coleman continues to rehab an undisclosed injury. The Saints also are unsettled at returner.”“Raiders, Khalil Mack haven’t talked contract since Feb” (NFL.com) - “Mack, who hasn’t reported to training camp, enters the final year of his contract on a fifth-year option, which pays a base salary of $13.8 million.”“Robert Griffin III finding new opportunities with Ravens” (AP) - “Robert Griffin III rolled to his right and threw a tight spiral down the middle of the field to a receiver that was being closely covered by a pair of defenders.”“Johnny Manziel comeback tour headed for Montreal: QB set to make first CFL start” (CBS) - “It looks like Johnny Manziel’s decision to take his football talent to Canada is finally about to pay off.” The Cleveland Browns offensive line has slowly pulled itself together through the first five weeks of the regular season.Sure, there have been bumps along the way - most notably last Sunday as tackles Desmond Harrison and Chris Hubbard struggled against the Baltimore Ravens - but the unit has been sound for the most part.The line’s play has landed the group in the upper half of the weekly rankings at Pro Football Focus, which places the Browns at No. 13 this week:Having a solid offensive is good news [url=http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jabrill-peppers-jersey]Authentic Jabrill Peppers Jersey[/url] , especially for quarterback Baker Mayfield, but it is the Browns defensive line that may be the true beneficiaries this Sunday when the Browns host the Los Angeles Chargers.That is because Pro Football Focus has the Chargers sitting at No. 25 in their rankings, with left guard Dan Feeney bringing up the rear with a grade of 38.6:The news is even better as left tackle Russell Okung (groin), Pouncey (knee), along with backup tackle Joe Barksdale (knee) have all been limited in practice this week, according to the Chargers website.A weak offensive line, with two starters dealing with injuries [url=http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-david-njoku-jersey]Youth David Njoku Jersey[/url] , is a perfect recipe for the Browns to unleash defensive ends Myles Garrett and Emmanuel Ogbah, along with defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi, in a quest to make it a long afternoon for Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers.Much like the game against the Oakland Raiders, however, the Browns will have to deal with Rivers getting rid of the ball quickly, as Ogunjobi explained on Thursday, via the team’s website:If the Browns can exploit the Chargers offensive line and get to Rivers [url=http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-larry-ogunjobi-jersey]http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-larry-ogunjobi-jersey[/url] , however, it will go a long way toward helping the Browns remain unbeaten on the season at FirstEnergy Stadium.
