Browns' John Greco: Sits out minicamp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greco (foot) did not participate in June's minicamp, Jeff Schudel of The News-Herald reports.

Greco, who finished the 2016 season on injured reserve, still appears to be recovering from foot surgery. It isn't clear if he'll be back in time for training camp.

Browns' Seth DeValve: Expected to break out in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns expect a breakout season for DeValve in 2017, Nate Ulrich of The Akron Beacon-Journal reports. "Most of his development in the offseason was that [DeValve] put on a little weight, he is noticeably stronger, he is faster and he is healthier," tight ends coach Greg Seamon said. "His ability to run routes, catch the ball, leave his feet, catch the ball away from his body and he has a big catch radius, I think those things are showing up out here. I'm pleased with what he has done developing as a blocker from a technical and footwork standpoint. The proof will be obvious when we put the pads on, but he is ahead of where he was a year ago. I see Seth as a guy who is important to us."

DeValve, the Browns' 2016 fourth-rounder, caught 10 passes for 127 yards and two spikes in limited snaps last season. Although he's beginning to prove himself as a receiver, the fact of the matter is that Cleveland selected Miami tight end David Njoku in the first round of this year's draft to serve as the team's primary receiving threat from the tight end position while Randall Telfer, the likely No. 2 on the depth chart, stands apart as the best blocker. That leaves DeValve as nothing more than No. 3. It usually all comes down to opportunity, and that simply might not be there for DeValve to significantly improve upon his 2016 numbers.

Browns' Duke Johnson: Big things expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson could take on a larger role in the offense this season, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. "He's hungry," running back coach Kirby Wilson noted. "He's very knowledgable. He's a great worker. He's committed to being the best that he can be. He's one of our better leaders and one of our better playmakers. So we expect big things from him starting in training camp."

Johnson has been a decent backup through his first two seasons in the league but will look to make the leap this season, playing second fiddle to Isaiah Crowell. If he can continue to develop his raw abilities behind a revamped Browns offensive line, the 23-year-old could be primed for career numbers across the board. With very little competition in the backfield this offseason, Johnson will ultimately be in control of how many reps he gets with the first team offense.

Browns' Isaiah Crowell: Playing for extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crowell could receive a long-term deal from the Browns if he's able to produce this season, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Crowell signed a restricted free-agent tender this offseason, which will make him an unrestricted free agent in March of 2018. However, if he's able to build on his 952 rushing yards from last season, the 24-year-old could find himself in Cleveland for years to come. Running backs coach Kirby Wilson seems confident that 2017 will be Crowell's best year yet, "He's not even in his prime yet. He has to continue to work hard. He saw what happened last year - when you work extremely hard, good things happen for you. I think he enjoyed limited success, and he's hungry and eager and looking for even more this season." Factoring in the Browns' offensive line additions of Kevin Zeitler and JC Tretter, Crowell's payday could be right around the corner.

Browns' Corey Coleman: Nursing shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman is tending to a shoulder injury in addition to his sore hamstring, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

Coleman reportedly sustained both injuries during an awkward fall in OTAs. We previously knew about the hamstring issue, but we also knew there was a separate, undisclosed injury. In any case, it sounds like the 2016 first-rounder should be available from the start of training camp, although he might be limited at first.
