Jeff Faine gets ready to prove himself

Patrick McManamon has a great profile of Jeff Faine in the Beacon Journal as the Browns wrap up minicamp, pointing out that Faine has to prove himself to the new coaching staff. Crennell again demonstrates that he’s all business and only cares about performance, pointing out that he’s not concerned about Faine’s weight as long as he gets the job done.

McManamon also includes another interesting story about Butch Davis, explaining that the offensive coaches perferred Eric Steinbach, who now starts for the Bengals, over Faine. Davis, on the other, hand wanted to go with a guy that he had recruited. Faine hasn’t turned out to be a terrible pick, but he’s another first-rounder under Davis that hasn’t cracked the Pro Bowl yet.
