Sixty-one of 63 players who were on the Browns’ roster this morning reported to the team’s headquarters in Berea for the first day of the organization’s offseason conditioning program, a league source told the Beacon Journal.
Quarterback Colt McCoy, who was traded to the San Francisco 49ers today, was at the Browns’ training facility for the workouts, the source said. Two players did not attend the first day of the voluntary program because of personal reasons, the source said.
“It was great to see the guys as a group for the first time,” Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said in a statement. “I was extremely pleased with the turnout -- we had more than 60 players participate. I believe that the program [strength and conditioning coach] Brad [Roll] and our strength staff has devised will greatly benefit our players. These next two weeks will be an opportunity for the players to get acclimated to our offseason program, spend some time getting to know each other and also to have some meeting time with their position coaches before having our first organized on-field work on April 16.”
The Browns will have their first minicamp under Chudzinski April 16-18.
