Tramon Williams

PITTSFORD, N.Y. — A short-term memory is a necessity for a successful cornerback.

Browns Notes: Coach Mike Pettine says CB Justin Gilbert being coached hard, “hopefully he’ll respond”

Gilbert, the No. 8 pick in 2014, had an up-and-down performance Thursday night in the 20-17 preseason-opening loss to Washington. He would’ve been burned for a 61-yard touchdown, but Pierre Garcon dropped the pass. He Read More…

Browns Analysis: 5 takeaways after the preseason opener
