BEREA, Ohio -- The Cleveland Browns continued their organized team activities this week with an open practice to the media on Wednesday.

Here are several notes and observations:

"It's a voluntary minicamp," Mangini said of the situation. "As I've said with all these guys, everybody has the ability to choose whether or not they want to be here."

"I think every team every year has an opportunity to contend," said Hood. "Nobody thought of Arizona at the beginning of the season last year, and we were in the Super Bowl. So this team has just as much opportunity as the next team in the league."
