The Browns and Jets start training camp a week before the other 30 NFL teams because they will meet on Aug. 3 in the Hall of Fame Game in Canton.

The Browns will begin camp on July 22, not in Berea as they normally would, but in Greenbrier, W.Va., because coach Kevin Stefanski believes the weather at the resort will be good for the team to bond. He is grateful that the team’s owners, Jimmy and Dee Haslam, were willing to pick up the tab.

The extra week and extra preseason game will come in handy because the Browns have a lot of issues that need to be resolved if they are to challenge for the AFC North championship. They were last in the division at 7-10 last year, two games behind the third-place Steelers and three behind the Ravens. The Bengals clinched the title with a 12-4 record.

The Browns were busy in the offseason strengthening the roster and coaching staff in order to compete for a postseason spot. Here’s a rundown of the key additions they’ve made since last season ended in a 28-14 loss at Pittsburgh.
