BEREA,OH - The Browns went back to work on Wednesday in Berea with the first afternoon practice of this year's training camp following the first off day of training camp. Wednesday's practice in front of another big crowd lasted 90 minutes.
The theme of practice was "The Red Zone," a place the team did not fare well last year. The Browns struggled to score points, but even after five days of practice you can tell the Browns have multiple weapons inside the 20.
Quarterback Brandon Weeden connected with tight end Jordan Cameron for a score to complete his first red zone drive. Cameron was the star on Wednesday at training camp catching three red zone scores, the last one a diving grab on a low bullet from Weeden. Cameron is a player to watch and has "impressed" head coach Pat Shurmur.
"Jordan is one of the young players who has benefited from having an off season and training camp," Shurmur said.
Cameron is a very athletic player, who also played basketball at Southern California in college. He added more muscle in the off season and good become a very valuable target in the red zone. Ben Watson has also been impressed by the young Cameron.
"He's a kid that can play, he gets better each and every day and asks a lot of questions and watched alot of film to get better," Watson said.
Browns owner Randy Lerner made his second appearance at training camp briefly at the beginning of the practice, speaking with team president Mike Holmgren for a few minutes before heading back into the Browns facility.
On Thursday, the Browns will practice in the morning from 8:45 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. The practice is open to the public.
