Q: With minicamp wrapped up and camp not starting until July 23, what does the average player do with more than a month off? Do they usually go home? Are the Browns' facilities still open for them, or do they do what the rest of us do and wait week to week with bated breath for the next addition of "Hey, Tony?"
A: The average player goes home, plays golf and does not think about football for about six weeks. Rookie players were required to complete an orientation program the first week, and then also go on break. Hey, a grueling marathon starts July 23. You wouldn't train for it by running a marathon a week before.
