(Berea) -  The Cleveland Browns will hold their first full squad practice Thursday but training camp has already begun for many players. Number one pick Barkevious Mingo says getting his contract signed lifted a "huge weight off his shoulders" and he is ready to go.

 Wr Josh Gordon who has been suspended for the first two games of the season after failing a drug test, says he is sorry about his situation. Gordon will be allowed to practice and play in pre-season games.

 QB Brandon Weeden says he feels like a different player from a year ago and is looking forward to winning the starting job and being the leader of the team.

 The Browns first full squad practice will be Thursday afternoon at 4pm and is open to the public.
