  1. Browns general manager Tom Heckert indicated that he envisions linebacker Chris Gocong as a pass rusher first and foremost in the team's 3-4 defense. "Chris is a player who has started a lot of games over the last three years," Heckert said. "I really feel as though he fits better into our 3-4 scheme than what he did into a 4-3. I believe that this move will give him a chance to show off a lot of the skills that allowed him to record more than 40 sacks in college. He is smart and fast, and like Sheldon and all of the players we've acquired this offseason, possesses the qualities that the Browns are looking for."
