Deshaun Watson gets muted reaction at Browns' open practice
BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Deshaun Watson sprinted onto the field to a light round of cheers Saturday at the Cleveland Browns' first open practice of training camp. The noticeably muted reaction reflected the uncertainty surrounding Cleveland’s controversial new quarterback. Watson was the focal point as the Browns worked out in front of a near-capacity crowd at their suburban headquarters. He briefly waved while running to the middle of the practice fields, but did not speak with the media.
The Cleveland Browns begin their preseason slate Friday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Browns released their unofficial depth chart for the game with Deshaun Watson, though that could change if a decision is made in the NFL's appeal of his six-game suspension for personal conduct policy violations. Cleveland head coach Kevin Stefanski plans on having the healthy starters available to play against Jacksonville, but didn't say how long they would stay in the game.
For Jacksonville, quarterback Trevor Lawrence and running back Travis Etienne sat out the preseason opening 27-11 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders in the Hall of Fame Game.
Browns unlikely to re-sign C JC Tretter
The Browns released center J.C. Tretter in March, and he has lingered on the free agent market ever since, with no concrete reports of interest in his services. However, even if Cleveland was able to re-sign its five-year starter to a team-friendly pact, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com does not envision such a reunion. © Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports Cleveland Browns center JC Tretter Per Cabot, the Browns would only consider re-signing Tretter if presumptive starter Nick Harris suffers a serious injury.
Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson said he plans to play those two and the rest of the starters against Cleveland and he will let them play for a couple of series before giving way to the backups.
