At minicamp, Browns continue work on transition from 4-3 to 3-4


BEREA, OHIO — Joe Haden bounded around the practice field breaking up passes as the Cleveland Browns continued their first voluntary minicamp under new coach Rob Chudzinski today.

Haden and linebacker D'Qwell Jackson led the Browns' defense through positional drills as they continued their transition from a 4-3 defense to a 3-4.

Lead cornerback Haden is eager to make up for lost time after missing four games last season as a result of an NFL suspension for testing positive for a banned substance.

Chudzinski was hired as the Browns' 14th full-time coach on Jan. 10, replacing Pat Shurmur. It's his first head coaching job at any level. Cleveland went 5-11 last season and has not finished with a winning record since 2007.

The three-day minicamp began Tuesday, one day after FBI and Internal Revenue Service agents executed four search warrants at the Knoxville, Tenn., headquarters of Pilot Flying J, whose CEO is new Browns owner Jimmy Haslam III.
