BEREA, Ohio — He’s now RG4.3.
Trying to revive a once soaring career that crashed badly in Washington, quarterback Robert Griffin III believes he has a leg up — two of them actually — over the competition to win Cleveland’s starting job.
As the Browns prepared to open training camp Friday under first-year coach Hue Jackson, Griffin gave his assessment of the QB field.
“There’s only one of us that runs 4.3,” he joked, noting his blazing time in the 40-yard dash. “They like to race me a lot.”

GLENDALE, Ariz. — His time on the ice done, John Chayka would turn to the tape, spending up to 25 hours to break down the game just played.
He tracked every player on the ice, every possession, touch of the puck, calculating the impact of every decision or movement on the ice.
The attention to detail, to making himself and his teammates better, led Chayka to co-found his own hockey analytics company. Now it’s helped him become the youngest general manager in NHL history, a meteoric rise even he didn’t see coming.
