However, he is getting a chance to make the Browns‘ roster, thanks to his relationship with new head coach Mike Pettine. Pettine was the defensive coordinator for the Jets, and Browns’ defensive coordinator coach Jim O’Neil was the Jets’ defensive backs coach when Berry played for gang green.
Here are some other notes from around the AFC North:
- The Browns have a versatile weapon in former quarterback MarQueis Gray, writes George Thomas of the Beacon-Journal. Gray converted from a passer to a tight end last year, and this year is changing positions again as he familiarizes himself with the fullback position.
- Jon Meoli of the Baltimore Sun highlights five second-year players in position to have a big impact for the Ravens in 2014.
- While the Bengals have the seventh best roster in the NFL according to Pro Football Focus, but could have been ranked even higher if not for the inconsistent performance of quarterback Andy Dalton, writes Coley Harvey of ESPN.com. Offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth, defensive tackle Geno Atkins, and receiver A.J. Green lead the charge for the Bengals’ high overall ranking.
