Browns players planning to return to Texas for third edition of 'Camp Colt'

A third set of players-only workouts organized by Browns quarterback Colt McCoy will soon be held at the University of Texas in Austin, tight end Evan Moore confirmed today.

Wide receiver Josh Cribbs told that the workouts are set to take place June 9-11. Moore indicated they'll occur in the near future, but the dates are still tentative at this point.

"Date is not 100% confirmed," Moore wrote in an e-mail. "But yes, we'll be down in Austin soon to resume our workouts. We have yet to finalize the date."

This offseason, McCoy, pictured right, and several of his offensive teammates have previously conducted two, three-day sessions of workouts, which have been dubbed "Camp Colt." The first one took place last month at the University of Texas, and the second one was two weeks ago at Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea.

The gatherings, obviously, have allowed the players to train together despite the NFL's lockout. During an appearance in Akron earlier this month, Browns coach Pat Shurmur said he has been encouraged by them.

''I think it's terrific,'' Shurmur said. ''Some of our players have obviously taken leadership roles in making sure the guys get together, some of our key players, and I think that's a good thing.

''We know what we read because we haven't been able to communicate (with the players). From what I've seen, (McCoy has) really done a good job of trying to get the players together, work out and really do as much as we can do until we get them back into (the team's headquarters in) Berea.''
