Browns coach Eric Mangini met with media Friday afternoon in between practices at the team's mandatory minicamp in Berea. Here are some of the highlights:
- Mangini said there are no updated on the Browns' restricted free agents.
- All the injured players who were sidelined during today's first practice are expected to sit out this afternoon as well. Tight end Evan Moore might be the one exception, but Mangini isn't sure yet.
- Mangini likes what he sees from the Browns' group of young receivers. He praised the progress Mohamed Massaquoi and Brian Robiskie have made in the offseason. Mangini on his receiving corps: "They block and they create some things on the perimeter. ... They finish plays."
- Mangini on defensive lineman Kwaku Danso: "I like his size. I like his intelligence. And I like the way he works."
- Mangini condemned the fight that broke out at yesterday's practice. "I've seen too many bad things happen." On Thursday, defensive lineman Cliff Geathers threw punches at a player who wasn't visible. Teammates immediately swarmed Geathers and broke up the fight.
- Mangini on receiver Johnathan Haggerty, who stood out during today's first practice: "He's gotten some more looks because of the good things that he's done. I'm excited about what he has done."
- Mangini has a hard time identifying something offensive tackle Joe Thomas can improve upon. When asked what Thomas can become better at, Mangini was at a loss for words.
