Browns coach Jackson likes private workouts, not pro days

Again, as I said earlier, it doesn't mean we won't go back and revisit.

The sixth-year pro will be paid a whopping $16 million this fall, which is why the Texans added a 2018 second-round pick and a 2017 sixth-rounder to convince the Browns to take on his contract. Immediately after the Browns traded for him, reports that they were looking to move him elsewhere swirled.

That was the focal point of the team's press release announcing the trade.

While doing a question and answer session with Texans voice Marc Vandermeer at the National Football League owners meeting, McNair stammered an answer when probed about how little the Texans have done in free agency. "I've talked to the people at Cleveland, and I've told them a new environment for him and maybe a new perspective and he could be productive for them".

"Brock's on our roster and as long as he's on our roster, we're going to coach him hard", Haslam said.

Jackson made it clear the Browns haven't given up on possibly trading for a veteran quarterback such as New England Patriots backup Jimmy Garoppolo or Cincinnati Bengals backup AJ McCarron.

While the Browns have gone 11-37 over the past three years, Garrett's Aggies have gone 24-15, winning more than twice as many games in nine fewer opportunities.

The Browns have seen off Robert Griffin III and Josh McCown in free agency and now have second-year quarterbacks Cody Kessler and Kevin Hogan on the roster alongside Osweiler.

"I think it's better when you get an opportunity to take a player to dinner, spend some extra time with them that way and be able to have a private day where you get the player to do exactly what it is you want to see him do - as opposed to him coming there with his quarterback coach [and] it's all scripted", Jackson said. "But once we start our offseason program, phase one, we'll get a chance to know him and he'll get to know us". The team has also worked out or is scheduled to work out the top four quarterbacks in this year's draft: Mitchell Trubisky, Deshaun Watson, DeShone Kizer and Patrick Mahomes.

Jackson said "there's always a possibility" the Browns could re-sign incumbent starting right tackle Austin Pasztor, who's still a free agent.

Osweiler was 5-2 as starter with the Broncos in 2015.

"Gregg is different, as well all know", Jackson laughed as he sat with microphones and recorders firmly in his face. "Somebody would call, I'm sure they would say we felt very good and comfortable with Robert and what he was able to accomplish with us".
