AFC North Notes: Browns, Ravens, Steelers

     

Browns

Browns second-round CB Greedy Williams toured the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, as a part of his rookie orientation with other members of the Browns draft class.  Williams says his goal is to come back one day as a member. 

“I remember my first game, caught an interception and I said, when I get to the NFL level, I want to be a Hall of Famer,” Williams said via Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot. “My job isn’t finished until I have a gold jacket. It’s just one of those things me and my stepdad just sit down and talk about.”

Ravens

Part of the revamping process for the Ravens offense has included slimming down the play-calls, which at times included as many as 25 words, to make life easier for QB Lamar Jackson.

“Yeah, because last year there were games when I wasn’t in command,” Jackson said via USA Today’s Jarrett Bell. “I’d come in last year kind of nervous, because there are grown men looking at you, depending on you to help them feed their family. Now I’m a lot more comfortable just saying different things on different plays to let my guys know where they need to be.”

Steelers

At 5-11 and 234 pounds, Steelers first-round LB Devin Bush is on the small side of linebackers in the NFL. However, he says he won’t have a small impact on the field.

“I’m a grown man as much as anyone else in this locker room. I’m here to play football. Nothing changes,” Bush said via Tim Benz of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.  “I’m low to the ground. Very quick. Explosive off the first step. I can generate a lot of power with my legs and my arms. Being able to use my athleticism in the middle to have that quick burst — that strength — to withstand the bigger guys, I think that’s the biggest advantage when I rush inside.”
