Training Camp Log, Day 4: Fans to choose field design for season

FANS’ CHOICE: The Browns are holding online voting for the design of the field at FirstEnergy Stadium this season. They provided four choices for the 50-yard line and end zones, including Brownie the Elf standing and with a stiff-arm pose. Midfield will have a logo after being blank in recent years.

“Browns fans always bring the energy needed to create an incredible homefield advantage at FirstEnergy Stadium. With all they do for us, we want to show our appreciation by giving them the ability to select one of four fantastic field designs for all home games this season,” Browns partner JW Johnson said in the news release.

Voting is open through Aug. 27 and can be done on the team’s website or mobile app.

NEWS OF THE DAY: Quarterback Deshaun Watson practiced in front of fans for the first time and received a warm if not boisterous welcome.

PLAY OF THE DAY: Watson threw a fastball over the middle, and 5-foot-6 receiver Jakeem Grant Sr. reached up to grab it for an impressive completion.

QUOTES OF THE DAY: “I definitely use social media. For some reason, I just can’t see any negative comments. It’s just the craziest thing.” — Tight end David Njoku.
