NFL Notebook: Brady fined for sliding kick on Ravens' Reed

Milus spent the last two seasons coaching the Broncos' secondary. The Broncos had one of the NFL's best defenses last season and led the NFL in fewest yards allowed per pass play (6.4).

Johnston was the strength and conditioning coach for the Browns for the past three seasons.

BROWNS: Rob Chudzinski, the new coach, said it's "premature" to name Brandon Weeden his starting quarterback for next season.

At a news conference to introduce offensive coordinator Norv Turner, Chudzinski wouldn't commit to Weeden, who had an uneven rookie season. Turner would not provide an evaluation of Weeden, but did say Weeden possesses "the skill set we're looking for. He does have a big arm."

Chudzinski said Turner, recently fired following six seasons as San Diego's coach, will call plays for Cleveland's offense. Chudzinski said it was easy to turn that duty over to Turner, "one of the best play-callers in the league for a long time."

BILL CALLAHAN, the former Oakland coach, denied allegations made by two of his former players that he "sabotaged" the Raiders in their Super Bowl loss to Tampa Bay 10 years ago.

Former Raiders receivers Tim Brown and Jerry Rice said in recent interviews they believe Callahan undermined his own team in the Super Bowl in 2003 because of his close friendship with Tampa Bay Coach Jon Gruden by altering the game plan less than two days before Oakland's 48-21 loss.
