Day 2 Of Browns Training Camp

During the second day of Cleveland Browns training camp on Sunday, two players dominated the headlines: FB Peyton Hillis and CB Joe Haden.

With rookie running back Montario Hardesty out, Hillis is getting a lot of reps with the second team offense. With that role, he has already impressed people with his ability to catch the ball and then run after the catch. Sunday afternoon, Hillis caught two short passes and proceeded to take them for 40- and 30-yard gains.

On the defensive side of the ball, all eyes were on rookie cornerback Joe Haden, who made his first appearance of camp after signing his contract Saturday. Haden worked with the second-team offense and on special teams. Reports note that Haden did pretty well as a gunner.

Speaking of cornerbacks, Eric Wright revealed that the team is trying to get him to be the team’s permanent nickelback this year. Wright would still be a starter, but would shift over to the nickelback position on third down. That is some pretty revealing news, since it was expected that Joe Haden might take on that role this year.
