Cleveland Browns OTA and minicamp schedule for 2014


Following another disappointing season in 2013, the Cleveland Browns had a bit of an overhaul at the top of the command chain. After just one season, they fired Rob Chudzinksi and replaced him with Mike Pettine, who now works under new GM Ray Farmer. The organization hopes that these changes will end up taking the team back to the top of the AFC North, and that journey starts soon with the offseason workout programs.

Here’s a look at the spring and summer schedule coming up for the Browns.
