Phil Taylor hoping Browns pick up option
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Nose tackle Phillip Taylor hopes the Browns pick up the fifth-year option on his rookie contract, which would pay him about $5.5 million in 2015, reports the Akron Beacon Journal. Cleveland has until May 3 to exercise the option.

“I would love to be here, but that’s not up to me,” Taylor told the paper. “So we’re going to wait and see what [the front office] is going to do about it.”

Taylor started 15 games last year and finished with 57 tackles and two sacks.

Andrew Hawkins 'ready to bust out of his shell'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

New Browns receiver Andrew Hawkins, who wasn't used much in Cincinnati, "is ready to bust out of his shell," according to the team's website. "The extra attention Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron automatically command will leave large chunks of the field open for the taking," the report said.

New offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan likes to call wide receiver screens, a play Hawkins can exploit. After catching just 86 passes in three seasons in Cincinnati, Hawkins will get a chance to prove "he’s more than just a pinch hitter" in Cleveland, the website said.
