A HARD-KNOCKS LIFE: The NFL Films cameras are everywhere for HBO’s “Hard Knocks.” They captured Christian Kirksey tying his shoe, Baker Mayfield signing autographs and Jarvis Landry playing with his daughter.
The appearance on the series that goes behind the scenes of training camp crossed over into the team’s marketing. A huge orange banner was posted on the field house reading: Welcome to the Hardland of America.
NEWS OF THE DAY: The Browns will host former Bengals cornerback Adam Jones for a tryout Friday.
CAMPER OF THE DAY: Defensive end Myles Garrett, the No. 1 pick last year, was the star of the opening practice for the second straight year. Whether it was a pass-rushing drill or in 11-on-11s, he consistently went through or around the blockers to reach the backfield.
PLAY OF THE DAY: Quarterback Tyrod Taylor lofted a pass about 40 yards down the left sideline, and Landry jumped over the defensive back to snatch the ball out of the air with both hands.
QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Do I need to? No. But will I? Yeah.” – Garrett when asked if he needs to bring a nastier edge to the field in his second season.
FRIDAY’S SCHEDULE: 3-5:55 p.m.
