BEREA, Ohio -- Following his first practice with the Browns, former Denver Broncos punter Britton Colquitt felt both welcomed and strangely out of place.I feel ancient compared to some of these guys, the 31-year-old said.Clevelands got some kids this season.With 17 rookies and 28 players who have played one NFL season or less, the Browns will be one of the leagues youngest teams. They lack experience, have unproven talent and the new front offices rebuilding plan will test the patience of Clevelands fed-up fan base as well as coach Hue Jackson, who expects to struggle balancing development and trying to win.I dont know how to do that. I just dont, he said. I have an expectation and Im not backing down from that and Im not changing that thought process in our players. That is just what we are going to do and we are going to find a way to do it. I dont know how its going to happen.By hook or by crook, we are going to get this done. We have to. That is all I know. I dont know anything else.When he took the Cleveland job in January, Jackson knew what he was getting into. The teams reconfigured decision-making group, led by Paul DePodesta, a former baseball executive known for his Moneyball approach and hired by Browns owner Jimmy Haslam as the organizations strategy director, was going to clean out the teams roster like never before.The Browns, who have had 13 double-digit loss seasons since 1999, began by dumping a few high-priced veterans in their 30s. They made a few trades for future assets -- getting a first-rounder from Philadelphia -- and then selecting 14 players in the draft.When the team submitted its 53-man roster this weekend, 13 of those draft picks made the team along with four other rookies, two first-year players and nine players headed into their second seasons.Its a young, impressionable squad, maybe younger and more impressionable than Jackson imagined.No matter, its his team.I didnt know how young we would be, Jackson said Monday as the Browns began building toward Sundays opener against the Eagles, who in an ironic twist will start quarterback Carson Wentz, a player Cleveland passed on a chance of taking and traded with Philadelphia. We have what we have. Im excited about the guys that we have. We just have to coach them up and get them better.This will take time, and Jackson understands that. And although he may privately concede the Browns may lose a lot more than they win this year, Jackson said having an inexperienced team can be beneficial.It can be because they are not `NFL-ized, he said. They havent been in the National Football League. I think some of our guys are just going to go play, and I think that is what we have to do as a football team. We cant get worried about anything.For Jordan Payton, one of four rookie wide receivers on Clevelands roster, its essential that the teams young players lean on the veterans to guide them.You ask questions, you stay right on their hip pocket, said the fifth-round pick from UCLA. Youve got to put your egos aside. You dont know everything, at all. You know nothing, and so you trust your coaches, you trust the vets. You ask a ton of questions and you soak it all in and you go out and work.Colquitt has seen what can happen when young players buy in, stay hungry and learn.He began his career with the Broncos in 2010, when they went 4-12. Five years later, they were Super Bowl champions. Of course, it helped getting Peyton Manning along the way, but Colquitt said theres something to having a team filled with young players who dont know any better.These (young) guys are happy to be making a paycheck and doing something they love, he said. Theres more to it than just a game. Theres a lot of stress and things like that involved. But with a younger team, they are just happy to be out here, and they dont know that there have been down years.Game notes Jackson quickly rebuffed a question about the Browns decision not to draft Wentz. We went another direction, he said. ... Rookie WR Corey Coleman, who had a rough preseason, opened Mondays practice with two dropped passes while the media was in attendance. He said it got better from there and acknowledged he needs to relax more. They drafted me in the first round, so they expect a lot out of me and I expect a lot out of myself, he said. ... DB Trey Caldwell, a fifth-round draft pick released on Saturday, was signed to the practice squad along with P Michael Palardy and RB Terrell Watson. Marcus Sherels Jersey . Just as Montreal was settling into the first full working week of a new year, the Impact announced the appointment of their new head coach. Andrew Sendejo Jersey . - After leading the Saints to a fourth playoff appearance in five seasons, Drew Brees expressed confidence in the direction of his team and, perhaps more importantly, showed a willingness to listen to contract proposals if the team needs his help getting under the NFLs salary cap. http://www.vikingsauthenticshop.com/Vikings-Jaleel-Johnson-Draft-Jersey/ . PETERSBURG, Fla. Alan Page Jersey .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. Cheap Vikings Gear .Y. -- Paul Byron and Matt Stajan scored as the Calgary Flames started a five-game road trip with a 2-1 overtime win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday afternoon. PHOENIX -- The National League West seems to be slowly slipping away from the San Francisco Giants, and even a postseason spot is in jeopardy.After posting the best record in the majors at the All-Star break, the Giants have had the worst record since.San Franciscos seemingly secure four-game lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers five weeks ago has evaporated, to the point where the Giants find themselves five games behind the Dodgers with 25 games to play in the regular season and clinging to a tenuous lead in the NL wild card race. The Dodgers have gained ground despite the fact that ace Clayton Kershaw has been out since June 26 with a herniated disk.The Giants enter a three-game series at the Arizona Diamondbacks this weekend trying to right matters after falling three more games behind the Dodgers in the last 10 days.Arizona had had a little bit to do with the recent shift in the balance of power.The Diamondbacks split a two-game series in San Francisco on the final two days of August in the first stop of a three-city road trip that concluded when they were swept in Los Angeles in a three-game set that ended Wednesday. The Giants, meanwhile, lost two of three in Colorado, giving up three runs in the ninth inning of a 6-5 loss Wednesday.You have to win games youre supposed to win, Giants manager Bruce Bochy told reporters.The Giants could look at this as a supposed-to-win series close to a must-win one, although the Giants and Dodgers do meet six times in the final 13 games of the season.San Francisco is 10-6 against the Diamondbacks this season and has won 10 of 12 against them since being swept in a four-game series at home during the second week of April. Arizona is 25-43 at home.Madison Bumgarner, a top NL Cy Young candidate, will oppose Arizona right-hander Rubby De La Rosa in Fridays series opener.dddddddddddd De La Rosa will make his first start since going on the disabled list in late May with right elbow soreness. He threw 30 pitches in his most recent rehab assignment on Monday for Class A Visalia, so he is likely on a severe pitch limit.Bumgarner, 14-8 with a 2.51 ERA, has won four of his last five starts but has a 4.20 ERA over that span. He beat the Chicago Cubs last Saturday -- the only game the Giants won in that four-game series -- and is 2/3 with a 1.22 ERA in his last five starts against Arizona.The day before the All-Star break, Bumgarner beat Arizona with one of the best games of his career, striking out 14 and giving up only one hit, an eight-inning single by Jake Lamb, in a 4-0 victory on July 10.Part of San Franciscos trouble is a lack of offense. The Giants have only 39 homers since the All-Star beak, the second-fewest in the majors. Brandon Belts homer in Colorado on Wednesday broke a streak of 254 homerless at-bats for Belt, Brandon Crawford and Buster Posey, the top three home run hitters on the team. Posey has gone 150 at-bats without a blast.Arizona did not hit well in Los Angeles, scoring only five runs in the sweep while facing three rookie starters.Diamondbacks second baseman Jean Segura had 30 hits in each of the first five months of the season, the first player in franchise history to do that. Luis Gonzalez had five straight 30-hit months from May to September in 2000. Segura has 35 doubles and 30 stolen bases, joining Jonathan Villar and Starling Marte as the only 30-30 players in the majors.
