Freddie Kitchens didn't need to look at his watch. He was ending the Browns' first practice when the team had accomplished what he wanted it to.
On a sun-splashed Thursday before a crowd of more than 2,500 people, that meant the Browns would go a little bit into overtime before the final whistle was blown.
"We are going to go until we get it right so however long that is," Kitchens said. "That is the beauty between fall camp and those league-mandated things in the spring. We can go until we get it right."
There was plenty of excitement, plenty of highlights but there were also plenty of things that weren't executed at the level Kitchens expects. It's why he gave a short, succinct answer about how he felt about the nearly two and a half hour session.
"I thought we got some things accomplished today," Kitchens said, "but it was truly the first day and you could probably tell that."
Friday is Day 2, and the Browns will be back on the fields at 10 a.m. for their second of five consecutive days of practice.
Here's what you might have missed from a busy, busy Thursday in Berea.
