The Cleveland Browns officially break training camp today. Preparation for the regular season moves to the next phase. This time provides a good chance to look back at the highlights and lowlights of training camp.
Best player: WR Brian Hartline. Practiced hard, practiced well and was there every day. Availability is part of dependability, after all. Hartline is a clear pro and a solid addition.
The story added a close second WR Travis Benjamin. It never really made sense that some thought Benjamin was on the bubble to make the roster when camp started. After seeing him in camp, it makes less sense. Benjamin is vastly improved as a receiver and his speed is something the offense and punt return units badly need. Brown WRs are buried down our WR list but Hartine always attracted targets in Miami. The QB situation is an unstable one but Hartline, who isn't getting a lot of draft attention, could be a waiver wire claim at some point if he continues to play well.
