- After former NFL WR Chad Johnson asked Browns HC Hue Jackson via Twitter for an opportunity to coach the team’s receivers, Adam Schefter reports that Jackson has invited him to training camp to spend time with their receivers.
Stephen Loomis, the president of Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association, has threatened to pull officers, sheriffs, state troopers out of First Energy Stadium for the upcoming Browns’ season if RB Isaiah Crowell doesn’t do more than issue an apology for the picture he posted on his Instagram.
“He needs to go to Dallas, help the families who lost their loved ones last week, write them a check, look them in the eyes and give a heartfelt apology,” Loomis said, via TMZ. “…I will pull Cleveland officers, sheriffs, state troopers out of First Energy Stadium this season if he doesn’t make it right.”
Loomis referred to Crowell’s post was as “offensive as putting a picture of historical African-American men being hung from a tree in the 60s.”
Loomis also isn’t buying Crowell’s claim that he overreacted after getting emotional.
“You’re a grown ass man, and you claim you were too emotional to know it was wrong? Think we’ll accept your apology? Kiss my ass,” said Loomis.
- Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald writes that first-round OL Laremy Tunsil is expected to start at some point this season and could start immediately at guard.
- At this point in time, Tunsil is competing for a starting guard role against Jermon Bushrod, Kraig Urbik, Dallas Thomas, Billy Turner and Jamil Douglas.
- Jackson points out that Turner has received first-team duties at right guard during minicamp and also took reps at tackle during the Dolphins’ offseason program.
- Mike Jones of the Washington Post believes QB Kirk Cousins would still receive a long-term extension from the Redskins with a 9-7 or 8-8 record, as long as he is not the primary factor in those losses.
