What happened to Day 4 of Cleveland Browns training camp? There wasn’t one, as head coach Eric Mangini gave the team the day off. That fits in with the “player-friendly coach” vibe that has started to surround the Browns’ second-year head coach.
The defensive backs shined during the morning session, with several players coming away with significant plays. At the top of the list of players who shined this morning is cornerback Gerard Lawson. He intercepted both Seneca Wallace and Colt McCoy, with the McCoy interception going for a touchdown. Lawson’s roster odds aren’t very good, but two interceptions in one session certainly doesn’t hurt his odds.
Sheldon Brown picked off starter Jake Delhomme on a pass intended for Brian Robiskie, but Delhomme battled back a few plays later with a 50-yard touchdown to the second-year receiver with Mike Adams in coverage.
The other big play by a defensive back came at the hands of rookie safety T.J. Ward. He stripped and recovered a fumble from running back Jerome Harrison just before he ran into the end zone on a long pass play.
Meanwhile, at least for today, the first unit on the offensive line consisted of Lauvao (RG) and Pashos (RT), while the second unit consisted of Womack (RG) and St. Clair (RT). This is an interesting development, because Lauvao is seeing more time with the first-team offense this early in camp than expected.
