BEREA, Ohio– It’s the day before Cleveland Browns training camp.
General manager John Dorsey and head coach Freddie Kitchens answered questions from members of the media on Wednesday.
Both are trying to mediate expectations as we head into the most anticipated Browns season in years. With Baker Mayfield coming off an impressive rookie season and the addition of key pieces, like Pro-Bowl wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., it’s no surprise fans are pumped for the future.
“Our goal here with the Cleveland Browns, as long as I’m here, will always be to win the Super Bowl,” Kitchens said. “You don’t do that by talking about it, you don’t do it by outside expectations.”
He said he wants his players to give everything they’ve got every time they’re on the field and be better than the day before.
“We’re not going to judge how we perform by what’s on the scoreboard,” Kitchens said.
The first-year head coach had no shortage of one liners.
“If you’re not going to jump out of the airplane, don’t put the parachute on and I want people who put the parachute on.”
Training camp tickets are sold out. There are still tickets available for the Orange and Brown Scrimmage at FirstEnergy Stadium on Aug. 3.
