BEREA, Ohio -- Are you worried about a timetable for the Cleveland Browns in naming a starting quarterback? You might not have to wait much longer for the starter to be named.  The Browns continued their mandatory mini-camp Wednesday in Berea and the quarterbacks are still the talk of the town.

Colt McCoy or Brandon Weeden? Who will be the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns, and when will he be named the starter?  Head coach Pat Shumur thinks sooner rather than later.

“If you know that he's gonna be your guy, then make it happen, so everybody gets comfortable working with that guy all the time,” said Shurmur.

One guy who has a target on his back this year is wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi.  Browns President Mike Holmgren said in the offseason he expects big things from #11 this season.

"Whenever a guy like that endorses you and says you know what he says, you have to step up to the plate and accept the challenge," Massaquoi said.

With all the hype surrounding the offense, the defense is quietly going about their business of being one of the elite units.

"Last year we finished 10th overall and obviously we want to get in that top five or obviously be the best defense in the conference," added linebacker D’Qwell Jackson.

The third and final day of Browns mini-camp will be held on Thursday in Berea.
