BEREA, Ohio — 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.”

Cleveland’s other quarterbacks may not catch him. They won’t have time.

Griffin is expected to beat out veterans Josh McCown and Austin Davis and rookie Cody Kessler and become Cleveland’s 25th starting quarterback since 1999.

Griffin signed a two-year contract in March with the Browns, who are eager to see if the 26-year-old can recapture the magic he showed while electrifying the NFL as a rookie in 2012. While that was only four years ago, it seems like ages, and even Griffin isn’t entirely sure if he can get back to being the player he once was.

Hours before his first practice, Griffin was asked how to get his game back to its jaw-dropping rookie level.

“I just think you have fun,” he said. “It’s a kid’s game that we get to play for a king’s ransom. At the end of the day, you know what you’re doing. You’ve done your studying, you worked hard, you’ve run, you’ve lifted, all those things. Now you’ve just got to come out here and have fun. I think that’s the beauty of the game, the more fun you have the easier it is for you to play freely and go out and make plays.”

TITANS: Tennessee agreed to terms with seven-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Andre Johnson.

The 6-foot-3 Johnson ranks eighth in NFL history with 1,053 receptions and ninth in yards receiving (14,100), leading active players in those categories.

BILLS: Receiver Sammy Watkins won’t be ready for the start of training camp because of a surgically repaired left foot, though General Manager Doug Whaley said all signs indicate the starter is on track to play in Buffalo’s season opener.

Watkins had screws inserted into his foot to repair a stress fracture in April, and was one of 10 players – including starting defensive tackles Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus – placed on various inactive lists after the Bills held a conditioning session at their camp facility in suburban Rochester, New York.

JETS: The team is taking things slowly with Darrelle Revis’ surgically repaired wrist.

The star cornerback is uncertain when he might fully practice during training camp after being injured early last season. Revis played through a torn ligament in his right wrist that required surgery in March.

LIONS: Darius Slay signed a four-year extension worth about $50 million, a deal that lasts through the 2020 season. The 25-year-old cornerback was heading into the fourth and final season of his rookie contract.

DOLPHINS: Defensive end Dion Jordan has been reinstated by the NFL on a conditional basis after sitting out last season for his latest violation of the league’s substance abuse policy.

COWBOYS: Damien Wilson can be added to the list of freak accidents in the offseason for Dallas after the second-year linebacker injured an eye in a paintball accident.

Executive vice president of personnel Stephen Jones said the incident happened about a week before the Cowboys reported for training camp in California.

Wilson is joined on the non-football injury list by running back Darren McFadden, who broke his right elbow during Memorial Day weekend trying to save his cellphone when he dropped it.
