BEREA, Ohio — On the Browns’ practice fields just off Lou Groza Boulevard, the spirit of The Toe was alive and well yesterday.

The daily training camp competition between offense and defense ended with an extra-point-kicking contest featuring the burly linemen from both units.

The image of a 335-pound Phil Taylor winding his right arm propeller-like and kicking a line drive 3 yards off the ground won’t soon be forgotten. The nose tackle feigned despondence as he collapsed to the turf as the offense cheered a 2-1 win to claim the orange jerseys.
