Myles Garrett's rookie season with the Browns was historic 鈥?and horrific.

The 0-16 nightmare left him scarred Cheap Customized Seattle Seahawks Jerseys , but determined.

"It drives me a little bit, because I'll never let something like that happen again," the defensive end vowed Thursday as the Browns opened training camp with an infusion of talent and optimism following their forgettable 2017 season. "No matter how long I'm here, there will never be a season like that."

Cleveland fans could never handle another one.

But in the months since last season ended, coach Hue Jackson jumped into Lake Erie to cleanse himself of the losing and new general manager John Dorsey retooled the Browns' roster.

He acquired proven players such as quarterback Tyrod Taylor and Pro Bowl wide receiver Jarvis Landry in trades, signed free agent linebacker Mychal Kendricks and drafted rookie QB Baker Mayfield, the top overall pick who may eventually lead Cleveland's bruised franchise back to prominence.

With HBO's "Hard Knocks" chronicling their every move over the next few weeks, the Browns are pushing the reset button.

"It is not the same team," said Jackson, who held onto his job despite a 1-31 record the past two seasons. "John and his team did a tremendous job of adding key pieces to our football team. This is a competitive football team throughout."

Unlike so many previous seasons, the quarterback job appears to be locked up. On Wednesday, Jackson made it clear that Taylor, who led Buffalo to the playoffs last season, is the starter and that Mayfield is "not ready to walk out there right now and play."

"Tyrod Taylor is the starter," Jackson said Customized Detroit Lions Jerseys , getting an agreeing nod from Dorsey. "I don't envision any situation where all of a sudden he is getting a bunch of first-team reps 鈥?unless, God forbid, something happens."

Something always seems to happen to the Browns, so Jackson wrapped his knuckles on the wooden podium while discussing Taylor to ward off any bad luck.

The 27-year-old Taylor quickly won over teammates and coaches this spring with his team-first attitude and work ethic. Beyond his usual duties, part of Taylor's role is to help the Browns forget 2017 鈥?not just turn the page, but throw out the book.

"Let them know that it is a new year," he said. "Even if you were a part of it last year, it is a fresh start now. Learn from last year. No matter how good or how bad the season was, this season is a totally new year and be excited about the opportunity we have in front of us to go out and win games, change the culture and change the perception of this team."

Mayfield's first NFL camp will test his football knowledge and patience. The Browns are in it for the long haul with the Heisman Trophy winner, who to this point has accepted the team's decision to have him sit behind Taylor.

However, that doesn't mean Mayfield is satisfied being a No. 2 quarterback.

"I would never get my mind right to be a backup," he said before the Browns held their first practice open to the public. "That's the second that I would be complacent. That's the second that I would stop working. You've always got to keep working like you're going to work to be the best and that's the same thing Tyrod has done his whole life.

"It doesn't matter the position you're in. If you're not going to work hard, then you're not doing it right."

While the Browns want Mayfield to wait, fans may be a little more impatient to see him.

It wasn't long into practice that chants of "Ba-ker Martavis Bryant Color Rush Jersey , May-field" filled the warm air on the green, manicured fields behind the team's headquarters.

Mayfield's accustomed to the spotlight 鈥?the star attraction. But for now he's content with a supporting role, and doesn't object to Jackson's plan to give Taylor the majority of snaps with Cleveland's starters.

"No, absolutely not," Mayfield said. "They're doing everything they think is right and I believe in that and I believe in them, so when it comes down to the stuff that they're saying, that's not going to change my work ethic and if it does, then something's wrong."

Unlike Garrett, Mayfield's 2017 couldn't have gone much better.

Once a walk-on, he climbed to college football's summit, carrying the Sooners to national title contention.

And although he's not leading the Browns, Mayfield can help point them in the right direction.

"When you talk about a new season, the record from the past year goes out the window," he said. "It doesn't matter if you win the Super Bowl or you go 0-16, you start fresh and you haven't done anything for this season. So we're working to be the best team in the country and that's our mindset."
鈥?Jim Schwartz inherited one of the NFL’s worst defenses and turned them into one of the best in less than two years.When coach Doug Pederson hired Schwartz to be the defensive coordinator in 2016 Ted Williams Jersey , the Philadelphia Eagles were coming off three straight seasons ranked in the bottom four in yards allowed.Schwartz changed the scheme back to a 4-3 base and rebuilt the defense using many of the same players left from the old regime. He also brought a swagger that’s reflected in his players.Three-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, two-time Pro Bowl safety Malcolm Jenkins, defensive linemen Brandon Graham and Beau Allen, and linebacker Mychal Kendricks were part of the unit that struggled under former coach Chip Kelly and former defensive coordinator Billy Davis.But they’ve thrived under Schwartz because his system fits their skills.“He always puts us in great position to make plays,” Jenkins said.Schwartz made an immediate impact last season, helping the defense go from 30th in yards allowed and 28th in points to 13th and 12th, respectively.This season, they ranked fourth in both categories and had the league’s No. 1 run defense.While Minnesota’s top-ranked defense got most of the attention, Philadelphia’s unit has been excellent in the playoffs.The Eagles have allowed only 17 points in two games 鈥?one touchdown drive was 18 yards following a fumbled punt. They dominated the Vikings in a 38-7 win in the NFC championship game last Sunday.Now, Schwartz has to devise a plan to stop Tom Brady and the Patriots in the Super Bowl.“No player stands on his own,” Schwartz said. “The NFL in general, but particularly the Patriots, you can’t scheme for one player. If you do, then they have plenty of other players that can make plays. You have to do a good job against their entire offense, and you can’t really make it about one person.”Schwartz began his NFL coaching career in Cleveland as a research assistant for Bill Belichick in 1993. After three seasons with the Browns Giants Game Jerseys , he spent three years as outside linebackers coach in Baltimore and then went to Tennessee. Schwartz served 10 seasons with the Titans, the last eight as defensive coordinator.He coached the Detroit Lions for five seasons, leading them to the playoffs in 2011. Schwartz was Doug Marrone’s defensive coordinator in Buffalo in 2014, worked as a consultant for the NFL’s officiating department in 2015 and came to Philadelphia after Pederson was hired to replace Kelly.“I owe a lot to Bill Belichick. He got my career started,” Schwartz said. “That’s the last thing that we’ll be thinking about in preparation. You think any of our players care that in 1993 I got hired as an unpaid intern? They are just going out and playing.“We need to come up with a good plan. We need to execute. We need to keep in mind what we’re good at, keep in mind our matchups and all those different things. And if we do a good enough job at that, we’ll be able to come out with a victory.”Schwartz holds players accountable in meetings, singling guys out if they make mistakes. But he does it in a way where he doesn’t alienate them.“He cares about winning. That’s what he’s all about, not himself,” defensive end Chris Long said.Despite Schwartz’s success in Philadelphia, he won’t be leaving for another head coaching job just yet. The New York Giants and Arizona Cardinals were interested, but Schwartz wouldn’t confirm whether he interviewed with either team.“I think it’s not fair to our players or anything else to talk about anything else,” Schwartz said.AP NFL website: .
