Terrance West keeps applying pressure on Ben Tate
by Larry Hartstein |

Browns running backs Ben Tate and Terrance West both had their moments in Sunday's practice, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. But West "continued to look more explosive and seemed to dole out more punishment," the paper said.

The two are vying for the starting job. While Tate said he has no doubt he's the team's best option, the paper noted "people watching training camp on Sunday may not feel the same."

Brian Hoyer 'clear winner' on Day 2
by Larry Hartstein |

Brian Hoyer was the "clear winner on Day 2 of the quarterback competition," reports The Chronicle-Telegram of Elyria, Ohio. The Browns' clear frontrunner "was fluid and sharp all practice, and the ball only hit the ground a couple of times," the paper said.

Rookie Johnny Manziel struggled after looking good Saturday. "He one-hopped a couple of throws, failed to get a handoff to Dion Lewis, badly overthrew Jonathan Krause on a post and was nearly intercepted on a high pass over the middle," the paper said.

Josh Gordon works with third unit in anticipation of suspension
by Marty Gitlin |

Browns embattled Pro Bowl wide receiver Josh Gordon practiced Saturday with the third-team offense. It is assumed it was considered a waste for him to work with the first unit since he will likely be suspended for the season after several offseason infractions.

Gordon has been granted an appeal with the NFL, which has been slated for Friday. But his positive test for banned substances and subsequent DUI arrest might have cemented a one-year ban.

Owner: Johnny Manziel must learn from dedicated athletes
by Marty Gitlin |

Browns owner Jimmy Haslam did not exactly offer praise for quarterback and first-round pick Johnny Manziel, who earned plenty of offseason publicity and criticism for his very public partying.

"The really great athletes make their news on the field, not off the field," Haslam said via the San Antonio Express-News. Haslam added his wish that Manziel would pattern his professional outlook after such superstar athletes as Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Derek Jeter and LeBron James.

Manziel later told WKNR-AM that he agrees with Haslam that he can learn from that quartet.

Coach: Barkevious Mingo shined in Saturday practice
by Marty Gitlin |

Mike Pettine spoke glowingly Saturday about Browns 2013 top pick Barkevious Mingo, who proved disappointing as a pass rusher as a rookie as his production diminished in time.

Pettine said "hopefully the switch has been flipped" in regard to Mingo. The coach added that Mingo has gained much-needed weight and is now in the upper 230s. Mingo will also be put to the test in pass coverage, at which he was not adept a year ago.
