AURORA, Ohio - Every NFL rookie is in northeast Ohio for the annual Rookie Symposium, before heading off to training camps.
The orientation is held at the Bertram Hotel in Aurora. All 253 new professional football players are introduced to what their lives will be like as NFL players.
NFC rookies got started on Sunday and wrap up on Wednesday. AFC rookies attend from Wednesday through Saturday.
But on Tuesday morning, the new players were at the Cleveland Browns training complex in Berea for the Play 60 Youth Football Clinic. Three-hundred local children had the chance to learn from the new players who have made it to the professional level.
This is the first time the Browns have hosted the Rookie Symposium.
