Jake Delhomme joins Browns’ offseason workouts

Last month Browns quarterback Colt McCoy took the controls of organizing offseason work with his teammates near his Texas home, workouts dubbed “Camp Colt.” Now the Browns are getting together to work closer to home, and the man McCoy usurped as the Browns’ starting quarterback last season is in attendance as well.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer reports that quarterback Jake Delhomme was one of the players to show up to offseason workouts in Berea, Ohio, this week.

Also in attendance was tight end Jordan Cameron, a fourth-round draft pick. But the Browns’ other two rookie offensive skill position players, receiver Greg Little and fullback Owen Marecic, were unable to attend.

The workouts consisted of individual position drills, McCoy and Delhomme throwing passes to receivers, working out in the weight room and film study. McCoy received a playbook from new coach Pat Shurmur (in apparent violation of NFL rules), and he’s been teaching his teammates the new offense.

And Delhomme is apparently interested in learning the offense from the young player who took his job.

    This is good to hear. Colt came out of college with the talk that he was a good leader. As a 5th year senior (he redshirted as a freshman) he took his team to the National Championship, and as a junior he beat my Buckeyes. I thought that he would make a good NFL QB, and I am elated that he is on my Cleveland Browns. If his leadership, hard work, and dedication during this time is any indication, I think the Browns will be much better this year than last.

    Damn the rules. Get the playbook. Football will be played, either this year or next. The ones who will finish on top are going to be the ones that prepared during the lag, and not the ones that slacked off. You can’t stop preparing for your career just because of the lockout, no more than you can stop preparing if you are injured for the year. You will eventually get back to football, and you will have less rust if you truly prepare that if you wait around until the dust settles.

    You can come up with whatever little speech you want to make it ok in your head, but rules are rules and they have been broken. The NFL loves hammering players on ‘rules’ so I hope they do the same to the front office when these things happen.

    Say what you will about Jake as a quarterback. But the guy is a competitor and a good teammate.

    Hey Smittie…Didn’t you hear that the lockout was lifted for a day?

    It was during that period of time that NFL teams could distribute material, such as playbooks, to their players.

    I did hear of just one team that failed to hand out playbooks during this period of time…the Dolphins…they were not ready according to their new OC (who is the Browns “old” OC, Dibol).

    Check it out…I think you find that I’m correct…

    Hopefully they tipped him well for the pizza.

    Ok couple quick points to clarify some…things… The browns did break some rules after the lock out was back on Shurmur and colt stayed in contact. And they were “punished” 50k small price to pay…oh no(if it helps this new offense im pretty sure myself and other browns fans would help pay)… 2nd Colt never beat the buckeyes he lost to them his Redshirt Freshman year (24-7, sorry OSU alumni). Texas beat the buckeyes Vince Young’s Junior year(on a sick back corner touchdown pass to sweed). During Colt’s Junior year the buckeyes were busy losing to USC (which broke my heart). The biggest thing to take out of this is a young quarterback is putting on his big boy pants and trying his best to be a leader. Which is something the browns offense really needs. Now lets all hope that this “healed” shoulder adds some arm strength because i want colt to be successful and lead my browns but if he cant throw it down field with out it floating in because he cant make all the throws then make room for one of the big 3 next year (Luck, Barclay, Landry). But fingers crossed he is our guy.

    Did you go to bed every night at 9 PM when your mom told you to?

    I know you are probably a Cleveland fan, but can your brain be that small? To compare breaking rules/laws to staying up past your bedtime?

    Is murder ok? How about stealing? Arson? I mean, rules were meant to be broken, right? Quit being a goof and grow up.

    There are laws and rules. They have been broken.

    If this was the Patriots or Steelers you and everyone else would be going crazy with the slander.

    And Seneca Wallace…isn’t there and has never shown one ounce publicly of wanting to help Colt develop. While it’s fine that he wants to be a starter and has voiced that, I have to wonder why Wallace re-signed there in the first place since Colt will likely be getting every chance to show he’s the #1 and there will be other teams who will be looking for a potential starter once FA starts.
    McCoy was quoted as saying he hoped they both would be there but understood if they weren’t since they both have a WCO background.
    My guess is that Jake is helping Colt as much as he is also (re)learning the playbook. The Browns would be wise to hang onto him as at least a #3 since he’s the only QB they have who will help Colt develop on and off the field. I am sure he would love to start also but he’s a guy who will always do the right thing and be a great teammate and leader.

    Delhomme needs members of the other team to show up so he can throw them the ball.

    Delhomme has nothing to worry about in practice. Its not like the Browns have a pass rush that could catch a 36 year old quarterback. Perhaps Matt Roth can secretly tie Jake’s shoelaces together on the sideline when he and McCoy are going over the playbook ?

    Delhomme, Couch, McDonald, Frye, Mays, Anderson, Testaverde, Quinn, the list of grade “d” QB’s goes on and on. Why burden the team with a guy who is, excuse me for saying it, washed up, inaccurate, and slow. Delhomme’s day is long over.

    The Cleveland Browns need a new attitude, a new image and a brighter future. Let’s hope that Colt McCoy joins the list of winners like: Sipe, Graham, Nelson, Ryan, Kosar,Plum, etc.

    McCoy is my choice to join the winners.
