The Browns’ conversion to a 4-3 defense under Dick Jauron figures to be hindered by the lockout wiping out offseason OTAs and mini-camps. Linebacker Scott Fujita received an abbreviated copy of Jauron’s playbook and helped organized this week’s “Camp Colt” in Austin, Texas.
Though this was the first time the full squad has worked out together, Fujita feels the classroom study and on-field work has helped the defense pick up the system quickly enough to play a game.
“Based on what we did this weekend and what we have, we could play a game next week if we had to,” Fujita said on Tuesday. “It’s not an ideal situation, but it’s basic enough where we can just go play.”
Fujita appears to be the only Browns defensive player to have even an abbreviated copy of the playbook, but Fujita distributed copies to some teammates and former Philadelphia Eagles Chris Gocong and Sheldon Brown played in a similar system and were able to help in the classroom.
“At times, it can be a burden to have the one and only playbook, but it was important for one of us to have it,” he said. “We’re all just trying to make the best of a crappy situation.”
