Browns second-round QB DeShone Kizer said he’s been glued to HC Hue Jackson’s hip in an attempt to fast-track his development.
“It’s great,” Kizer said, via the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “It’s exactly what I expected when I got brought over to this club. Coach Jackson … said that’s exactly how he goes about his quarterbacks and he’s held up to it.”
Kizer added that working so closely with Jackson will hopefully lead to him seeing playing time sooner than later.
“It allows me to start my learning curve a little faster when you have the guy who’s calling the plays, the guy who’s created this offense … teaching you every day the fundamentals,” Kizer said. “It pushes you a little quicker than if it was someone else.”
Jackson mentioned that he’ll continue to work with Kizer, given that he has find more about him than their other quarterbacks.
“I will continue to do so,” Jackson said. “I have to find out probably more about (Kizer) than I do any of the guys. He’s not going to get too far away from me, I know that. He’s done a good job. He just has to keep getting better. He’s improved from day to day.”
New Rams WR Robert Woods said he’s focused on becoming the team’s No. 1 receiver this offseason.
“I always come in attacking the season trying to be the No. 1 receiver,” Woods told reporters, via the Los Angeles Times.
During the offseason, Ravens veteran TE Dennis Pitta agreed to a $2.5 million pay cut to remain with the team. He believes the Ravens essentially gave that money to DT Brandon Williams to re-sign him back in March.
“I think my money went to Brandon Williams,” Pitta said, via Jamison Hensley of ESPN. “He owes me something.”
Joking aside, Pitta explained that it was important for him to remain in Baltimore and be a part of the Ravens.
“This is an organization that I wanted to be a part of, obviously,” Pitta said. “So, it was important for me to stay here. We have been here eight years and have some deep roots here. I love playing for this team, for this organization, obviously for this city. It was important for me to stay.”
