BEREA, Ohio -- Here are six observations on the Cleveland Browns, gleaned from the training camp practice of Aug. 16:
1.Much has been made about the rehabilitation of tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. from extensive knee surgery, and justifiably so, given the importance of the Browns' star-crossed 2004 first-round draft choice to the progress Cleveland needs to make in the passing game. Of course, the Browns, whose passing game ranked 23rd in the league in 2005, need second-year veteran quarterback Charlie Frye, who started five games as a rookie in 2005, to grow up quickly. No doubt, his learning curve will be accelerated if Winslow and wide receiver Braylon Edwards, the team's top pick in 2005 who's also coming off knee surgery, are whole.
