CLEVELAND - It was an easy choice in selecting the star of Saturday's practice at Browns training camp.
Cornerback Joe Haden had a pair of interceptions, both off quarterback Brandon Weeden. The first came near the back of the end zone on a ball targeted for receiver Josh Gordon. Haden later picked off Weeden on a short out route by receiver Davone Bess and took it in for a touchdown.
"When you're a corner, sometimes it's hard to get your hands on balls a lot and jump routes and feel comfortable," Haden said. "Coach (defensive coordinator Ray Horton) is seeing what I can get away with. Trying to jump routes and playing what I see."
If an award is given out for the top player in camp, Haden would certainly be in the running. His coverage has been consistently good. It doesn't matter which receiver lines up opposite of him, as he showed Saturday.
"I feel like I'm doing pretty well," Haden said. "I'm just trying to keep improving every day. I want to be a leader on this defense. I have to come out every day on the top of my game and not taking any days off. Trying to set up the tempo for the secondary."
Richardson took a few snaps with the first-team offense. He watched most of the final stages as Dion Lewis worked with the first team.
Coach Rob Chudzinski will have more information next week concerning the possibility of Richardson playing Thursday in a preseason game against the Detroit Lions.
"We just want to keep him healthy for the opener," Chudzinski said.
"Mingo is a fast player," cornerback Buster Skrine said.
