The Cleveland Browns took the field on Day 6 of training camp in an afternoon/evening session without pads on Thursday. The practice had been moved to 4:10 pm in hopes that veteran free agents would finally be able to participate. Those players were still standing around for the first hour or so of practice, but once the team received the official word that the CBA was ratified, the players got into the action.
One of the players who made an immediate impact was the towering Evan Moore. Dawgs By Nature, our Cleveland Browns blog, has a rundown of what Moore did as well as what else went on during Day 6 of training camp:
Get Out of My Way: I watched a bunch of our receivers run routes, catch passes, etc. for almost an hour. Then, out of no where, I see this huge white guy line up as a receiver, grabbing my attention immediately. It was Evan Moore, who had just got in after the CBA was ratified. He made an immediate impact, and it seemed like the passing game revolved around him (with success) when he entered the game. He is taller than I expected, especially when he goes out and lines up on a defensive back.
Play of the Day: My favorite play? It involved Evan Moore. On a pass from Seneca Wallace in the corner of the end zone, Moore made a one-handed catch as he was going to the ground, beating cornerback Buster Skrine on the play.
On the injury front, offensive guard Eric Steinbach returned to action with the first-team offense after missing the first five days of camp. The team will be in full pads Friday morning, and there is sure to be some more interesting news to report on regarding players like Phil Taylor, Jayme Mitchell, and Marcus Benard.
