  • Browns' Denzel Ward: Adjusting tackling technique

    Ward has been working to adjust his tackling technique during the offseason after suffering two concussions during his rookie campaign, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Ward missed three of the final four games last season, but he was cleared to participate in the Pro Bowl in January and suggested Wednesday that he hasn't suffered any setbacks. The 2018 first-round pick is locked and loaded as the Browns' No. 1 cornerback ahead of the 2019 season and improved health could help him top the stat line of 53 tackles, 11 pass breakups, three picks and one forced fumble he posted as a rookie.

  • Browns' D'Ernest Johnson: Receiving reps as kick returner

    Johnson has been seeing action as a kick returner during the Browns' offseason workouts, Andrew Gribble of the team's official site reports.

    Along with Antonio Callaway, Dontrell Hilliard and Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi, Johnson is one of four players contending for the kick-return job. Johnson showed some explosiveness in space during his college days at South Florida, averaging 24.4 yards on kick returns and 10.3 yards on punt returns.

  • Browns' Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi: In mix at kick returner

    Sheehy-Guiseppi is one of four contenders for the Browns' kick-returning duties during the upcoming season, Andrew Gribble of the team's official site reports.

    Since two of his competitors (Antonio Callaway and Dontrell Hilliard) already have kick-returning experience at the NFL level, Sheehy-Guiseppi may face an uphill battle to win the job. Sheehy-Guiseppi signed with Cleveland as an undrafted free agent after leading the NJCAA in kick-return yards (1,278) and kick-return touchdowns (four) in 2018.

  • Browns' Dontrell Hilliard: Competing at kick returner

    Hilliard has been in the mix at kick returner during the Browns' offseason workouts, Andrew Gribble of the team's official site reports.

    Hilliard rarely saw action on offense in 2018, playing 58 snaps in 11 games while failing to earn any carries or receptions. He made a bigger impact on special teams, taking back 11 kicks for 264 yards. He'll face competition for kick-return duties from Antonio Callaway, Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi and D'Ernest Johnson.

  • Browns' Antonio Callaway: Facing competition for return role

    Callaway is competing with Dontrell Hilliard, Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi and D'Ernest Johnson for the Browns' primary return duties during the offseason program, Andrew Gribble of the team's official site reports.

    Callaway served as Cleveland's kick returner his entire rookie season, but it wasn't until Week 17 against the Ravens that he showed his potential on punt returns. In that contest, he brought back three punts for 46 yards. With Callaway's opportunities on offense expected to decline following the offseason addition of Odell Beckham, special teams may be an area where he can carve out a bigger workload.
