Browns head coach Pat Shurmur held a conference call with local media Thursday regarding the weekend's festivities.


Pat Shurmur held a 15-minute pre-rookie minicamp conference call with local reporters Thursday to discuss this weekend’s camp. Shurmur said he expected 37 players to attend, including all 11 of the team’s recent draft choices and 15 undrafted free agent signings. Shurmur said the rest of the players would be young players still classified as rookies.

Shurmur said the players would have physicals on Thursday evening and then have an orientation before practices on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. He also said the reason the camp is this weekend is so the player’s wouldn’t have any graduation or school obligations and could stay over Monday for offseason workouts.

Shurmur said he expects top choice Trent Richardson to take part in practice, despite having an off-season arthroscopic surgery on his knee. He said he also is excited to see Brandon Weeden take snaps under center.

He also talked about the perception of Weeden earning the starting quarterback spot.

“You draft players for a reason, but you have to see them perform,” he said. “I can see the quarterback discussion is going to be interesting.”

There have been league reports that DL John Hughes and DB Trevin Wade have agreed to terms to go along with FB/TE Brad Smelley and LB James Michael-Johnson.
