BEREA, Ohio (AP) -Braylon Edwards didn't want to talk about his one-day absence from the Browns' voluntary practices last week.
But his place in the wide receiver pecking order Tuesday appeared to speak volumes how the team felt about it. Edwards took reps with the third-team offense and was the last receiver in line during position drills.
``There's no significance to it at all. He's trying to learn the system,'' Browns coach Romeo Crennel said. ``It is not the same system that was in place last year and he is trying to learn it. He did miss a day, and so he is probably just a little bit behind.''
Edwards declined to comment on his absence, which Crennel said was because of a personal issue.
``He called and said that he wouldn't be here. It is a voluntary camp, so what can I do about it?'' Crennel said. ``Nothing else is going to happen. He has been here every day since.''
Crennel noted that the depth chart will be switched around so they can evaluate players and help teach them the new offense.
The absence came after Edwards promised to be a better teammate after being a major distraction last season.
``I'm moving on,'' Edwards said Tuesday.
He spoke highly of the new offense being installed by first-year coordinator Rob Chudzinski.
``There are some things I messed up on today, but as a whole I like this offense,'' Edwards said. ``It allows us to create a lot of mismatches and allows everybody to move around as opposed to staying stationary. We're going to be unpredictable this year.''
While on the third team, Edwards worked with rookie quarterback Brady Quinn, who continued to display inaccuracy during the Browns' voluntary practices.
``In September, it will be a concern if they are not on target,'' Crennel said. ``But right now he is still learning. He's still learning the system. He's learning the defense.''
