Training camp preview: AFC North team capsules
11-5, division champ, playoffs
Key losses: S Troy Polamalu, DE Brett Keisel, CB Ike Taylor, LB Jason Worilds, CB Brice McCain
Key additions: RB DeAngelo Williams
Training camp goal: Get a defense that has struggled recently to pressure the quarterback and create turnovers accustomed to new defensive coordinator Keith Butler and his promised, subtle changes.
Key losses: CB Terence Newman, TE Jermaine Gresham
Key additions: LB A.J. Hawk, WR Denarius Moore, DE Michael Johnson
Training camp goal: In the wake of Terence Newman’s departure to Vikings, push former first-round picks Dre Kirkpatrick and Darqueze Dennard into the starting cornerback roles over veterans Leon Hall and Adam Jones.
Key losses: LB Pernell McPhee, WR Torrey Smith, TE Owen Daniels, WR Jacoby Jones, DT Haloti Ngata
Key additions: CB Kyle Arrington, S Kendrick Lewis
Training camp goal: Ensure their talented defense can overcome the loss of one of the best players in franchise history: Haloti Ngata, who was traded to the Lions during the offseason.
7-9, missed playoffs
Key losses: TE Jordan Cameron, QB Brian Hoyer, DE Jabaal Sheard, CB Buster Skrine
Key additions: CB Tramon Williams, WR Dwayne Bowe, QB Josh McCown, WR Brian Hartline
Training camp goal: Although coach Mike Pettine is on the record saying he does not believe it is a priority, the Browns must find a quarterback in either veteran Josh McCown or Johnny Manziel.
