Here’s how it went.Cleveland Browns Training Camp Report - Day 13 (8/10/19)1. Get That Guy Out of Here! I’ve always wondered what would happen if Steelers fans visited a Browns training camp and wore a Pittsburgh jersey. Someone tried it on Saturday , wearing the jersey of WR JuJu Smith-Schuster. According to Daryl Ruiter of 92.3 the Fan, fans let him hear it; here’s a clip of him exiting the stands:2. Joseph Perfect on Kicks: In another duel between the kickers, Greg Joseph came out on top, making all five of his kicks while rookie Austin Seibert missed from 47 yards out.3. Kareem Hunt on 2nd Team: Although RB Kareem Hunt did some 7-on-7 work the other day, Saturday was the first day of camp in which he’s taken part in 11-on-11 drills. He was running with the second-team offense.4. Red Zone Give and Take: In a red zone drill, with plenty of time to throw, QB Baker Mayfield found WR Jarvis Landry for a touchdown. The highlight for that play is below. On another red zone attempt, though, Mayfield was picked off by CB Terrance Mitchell. Chalk up another hot day for Mitchell.5. Lob it Up to Njoku: In another red zone attempt, QB Baker Mayfield faced fourth down and lobbed it up to TE David Njoku, who went high for the touchdown among two defenders:6. Kicking Under Pressure: One good thing is that the Browns’ kickers are getting better with delivering on their “game-winning field goal” kicks after a two-minute drill is run. K Greg Joseph went first and connected from 44 yards out, and then K Austin Seibert connected from 52 yards out to end practice. With Seibert’s attempt Britton Colquitt Jersey , there was 22 seconds on the clock and no timeouts, so the field goal unit ran the fire drill to get on and kick the field goal.7. Plan for the Colts Game: Head coach Freddie Kitchens laid out the plan for practicing against the Colts, in terms of physicality:8. Brownies: The starting right guard remained OL Eric Kush. ... Fans were extra vocal now for their support of WR Damon Sheehy-Guiseppi. ... WR Jaelen Strong had a couple of drops in the red zone. ... CB T.J. Carrie was out to injury, and S Eric Murray shifted over to play his slot corner role. ... QB Drew Stanton’s two-minute drill ended with an interception by LB Joe Schobert. ... TE Demetrius Harris returned to practice. ... A total of 112 puppies have been adopted at the Browns Puppy Pound at training camp this year.9. Next Up: The Browns are off on Sunday, and then will have one Berea practice on Monday from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM before traveling to Indianapolis. CLEVELAND (AP) — The Browns didn’t have to go far to find their new coach.Freddie Kitchens was already in the building.The 44-year-old Kitchens, who had a dazzling eight-week run as interim offensive coordinator, is finalizing a contract to become Cleveland’s ninth coach since the franchise’s 1999 rebirth, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team is not commenting on the imminent hire.As of late Wednesday night, the Browns still had not officially announced Kitchens as their coach.However, there are no obstacles blocking his hiring and he’s expected to be introduced at a press conference on Thursday.The Browns selected Kitchens over six other candidates, including Gregg Williams, who went 5-3 as Cleveland’s interim coach but is not being retained. The first candidate to interview for the coaching vacancy Tyrod Taylor Jersey , Williams, who served as the team’s defensive coordinator, issued a statement thanking Browns fans for their support.“I want to personally reach out to all the Cleveland Browns fans and the people of Cleveland to say thank you for your support,” William said. “It has been an honor to coach this team and we loved living in this community with the finest, most passionate fans in the world. I am proud that we were able to help get the Browns back to the winning tradition the fans deserve.“I am humbled to have worked for such a storied franchise and will always love the city of Cleveland, this city deserves a winner! Please continue to support this team and the incredible group of men. I wish you all the very best and always remember #Comegetsome!”Kitchens has no previous head coaching experience, but his work with Cleveland’s offense — most notably quarterback Baker Mayfield — in the season’s second half vaulted him ahead of the other six candidates interviewed by the Browns, who were looking for the right coach to lead them following a stunning turnaround season.Kitchens will get the chance.Under his leadership, Mayfield, the No. 1 overall pick in last year’s draft, threw 19 of his NFL rookie record 27 touchdown passes while erasing any doubt that he could be the coveted franchise quarterback that has eluded the Browns for decades.Kitchens and Mayfield formed a strong relationship during their time together, and Browns owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam along with general manager John Dorsey are counting on the pair taking Cleveland to new heights.It’s a spectacular rise for Kitchens Baker Mayfield Color Rush Jersey , who began the season as the team’s running backs coach. He took over the Browns offense when coordinator Todd Haley was fired an hour after coach Hue Jackson’s dismissal on Oct. 29 and Kitchens quickly showed he had coaching chops.He revamped the offensive scheme, using multiple formations and tweaking the game plan to include calls that he knew his players were comfortable running. Kitchens, who was a three-year starting quarterback at Alabama, wasn’t afraid to be creative as he used wide receiver Jarvis Landry on running plays and to throw passes, and he got major production from rookie running back Nick Chubb, left tackle Greg Robinson and receiver Breshad Perriman — three players under-utilized by Jackson and Haley.Kitchens and Williams kept their players focused and motivated following the mid-season coaching change and the Browns went 7-8-1 following an 0-16 season in 2017 under Jackson.As the team’s success grew, Kitchens never campaigned to be Cleveland’s coach but leading a team was always a goal.“Definitely. No doubt,” he said. “I heard the other day somebody say something about I wasn’t ready to be a head coach. I mean, who the hell’s ready to be a head coach? You have a resume that you check off the list and everything?”The barrel-chested Kitchens became a fan favorite in a city that loves underdogs.“I like it here and I like it here a lot, and everybody around here knows that I like it here,” Kitchens said last month. “I love the town of Cleveland. Cleveland and I get along well.”Kitchens is the fourth coach hired by the Haslams since they bought the team in 2012.
