BEREA—Several of the newly acquired Browns players spoke as they came off the field after OTAs on Wednesday.
QB Seneca Wallace on the young receivers – “They’ve been great. They’re on the field early and they’re staying late. They are doing everything they can to show they can play.”
Wallace on playing time at QB – “I wanted to get an opportunity and a shot. That’s all I can ask for and I have that here.”
QB Jake Delhomme on his mindset – “I just want to contribute to the Cleveland Browns and be a part of turning things around. I’m 35 and have played 14 seasons. I just want to play and win. There’s no better feeling than coming into a locker room after a win and mission accomplished. I just wanted a chance to compete and that’s what I have here.”
Delhomme on new scenery – “For me, it is a fresh start. I loved six of the seven seasons I had in Carolina. Last season was not a lot of fun. I feel that I have a new beginning and it’s starting fresh.”
New cornerback Sheldon Brown on joining the Browns – “I welcomed the trade a lot. Tom (Heckert) was with me in 2002 when he drafted me. I feel like a rookie coming to the Browns, but at the same time and am a mentor to all of the young guys.”
Brown on last season – “It was a good season for me, but I’m looking forward to the future and this season.”
TE Ben Watson on joining the Browns as a free agent—“You always like it as a player when a team and a coach wants you. It helps to know they have confidence in what you can do.”
