Cleveland Browns LB Scooby Wright is exciting the coaching staff so far after offseason workouts. "He's done an excellent job of trying to learn our defense, working very hard. He's going to have a bright future," inside linebackers coach Johnny Holland said. Still, the rookie must convince the coaches he can contribute on special teams if he wants to earn a roster spot this summer.

Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III will have to earn the starting job during the offseason, training camp and the preseason. Beat writer Tony Grossi said in a radio interview Monday, June 27, that Griffin has been underwhelming. "He is learning a new offense. First of all he is healthy, he's very healthy. He looks physically like the old Robert Griffin in that he's moving great, he can zing the ball pretty well, but that's just the first step," Grossi said.
Fantasy Tip: It's still rather early, so don't get too down on RG3. He still has a good shot to win the starting job, and if he does he should be considered a Top 25 fantasy quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen if Pryor can transition from quarterback and become a productive receiver, but his size and athleticism and the lack of established receivers in Cleveland make him worth a flier in the final rounds in deeper rounds.

Fantasy Tip: All the talk about Griffin this offseason has been positive, but temper expectations. Draft him as a fantasy backup and hope he can come close to recapturing the form he displayed as a rookie.

Cleveland Browns LB Barkevious Mingo, who gained 25 pounds in the offseason, has looked fast and powerful off the edge this offseason, and outside linebackers coach Ryan Slowik said the Browns have been moving Mingo around. "He's been great for us so far," said Slowik. "He's obviously very athletic and we're trying to move him around, create different roles for him to do things and he's accepted it and he enjoys the challenge of trying to pick up different traits. How much he moves around is up to him."
