BEREA Odell Beckham Jerseys 2019 , Ohio (AP) — Jamie Gillan already has the catchy nickname and ready-for-Hollywood back story. He is no ordinary rookie.With his long hair pulled back into a ponytail and a thick Scottish accent unaffected by his college days in Arkansas, the Cleveland Browns punter looks as if he just walked off the set of “Game of Thrones.”No dragons, but there is a castle in his background.“At boarding school,” he said. “It looked a lot like Hogwarts and stuff.”And yes, Gillan recently ruined three official NFL footballs because he kicked them too hard.Hey, he’s “The Scottish Hammer.”Born in the Highlands of Scotland, Gillan moved to the U.S. as a 16-year-old when his father, who works in anti-submarine warfare for the Royal Armed Forces, was relocated to Maryland. Gillan played rugby and soccer as a kid and acknowledged not knowing much about American football until attending a high school game in Leonardtown, Maryland, which coincidentally is the hometown of Browns general manager John Dorsey.Unaware at the time Orange Johnny Manziel Jerseys , Gillan saw his future.“I watched a kicker, he didn’t make the extra point, like it hit the back of the offensive lineman,” Gillan said. “I went up to the coach after the game and I told him I had a rugby-playing background, and I’ve been able to do torpedo punts since I was 8 years old and I can do all three for you if you wanted. We went out the next day and he literally told me, ‘OK, make the ball spiral,’ so I made it spiral. And then I kicked a long field goal in front of him and then he just said, ‘All right, you’re on the team.'”Gillan wound up playing in a handful of games before his life would take another unexpected turn.A friend found a Facebook posting from Arkansas-Pine Bluff, which was looking for a punter after one of the school’s recruits decommitted. Gillan put together some game film and sent it to the school Johnny Manziel Jerseys 2019 , which offered him a full scholarship. The idea of kicking at a Division I program with all its perks was irresistible. “Free weight room. Free balls to kick. Free food, so I’m happy,” Gillen said, recalling his whirlwind recruitment. “That’s kind of how it went.”There was one minor problem.“I’m not going to lie to you guys,” he told reporters Saturday during the Browns’ rookie minicamp. “I had not heard of the state of Arkansas in my life before they called.”He did some quick research about his new home.“On the plane,” he said. “I pulled out the map and I saw Pine Bluff and said, ‘Oh, this looks like a decent place.'”Gillan handled punting and kicking duties at Arkansas-Pine Bluff, averaging 43.7 yards per punt as a junior and dropping 27 punts inside the opponents’ 20-yard line during his senior season. He also set the school record with a 52-yard field goal.The likable Gillan caught the eye of several pro teams and then spent the winter in Arkansas working out and perfecting his craft with the hopes of being drafted.In January, he bought four NFL balls — “they’re like 100 bucks apiece” — and was kicking in cold weather when his big plans began to deflate — literally.“I was kicking them and I could hear the air coming out of them, three out of the four Orange Terrance West Jerseys ,” he said. “I was like, ‘Oh, man.’ So I treated the last one with a lot of care until the Browns sent me some footballs, which was awesome.”He also received a care package from the San Francisco 49ers.“It was like Christmas,” he said.At his workout for the Browns and 49ers, Gillan said his new family in Arkansas cheered every kick.“I had the football team supporting in one corner,” he said. “We had all of the staff out there supporting me. The school I came from had my back the whole way through it. I was a captain of the team as well, so they all wanted to be out there. I wasn’t nervous.”Gillan never expected to be drafted, but he never imagined living in America or Arkansas either.Now he is in Cleveland, where he will compete in training camp with Browns incumbent punter Britton Colquitt, a Pro Bowl alternate last season.“I did a lot of research on him before I came here Terrance West Jerseys 2019 ,” Gillan said. “He’s such a great punter, great with technique and fundamentals. With him going into his 10th year, what better opportunity than to learn from someone like that?” Reports also have Browns taking on the Patriots in Week 8 at 4:25 pm as schedule leaks build."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Daily Dawg ChowRufio’s PlaybookBrowns will reportedly face Jets in Week 2 on MNFNew,5commentsReports also have Browns taking on the Patriots in Week 8 at 4:25 pm as schedule leaks build.EDTShareTweetShareShareBrowns will reportedly face Jets in Week 2 on MNFKen Blaze-USA TODAY SportsThe NFL will not officially release the 2019 schedule until Wednesday night at 8, but reports are starting to come out about a few dates concerning the Cleveland Browns.According to Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News, the Browns will make an appearance on Monday Night Football when they travel to MetLife Stadium to face the new York Jets in Week 2. (So much for wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. seeing the schedule a week earlier and believing the Browns would face the Jets in Week 1).If true, it would mark the Browns first game on Monday Night Football since Nov. 30, 2015, when they lost to the Baltimore Ravens on the game’s final play, a blocked field goal returned 64 yards for a touchdown by Baltimore’s Will Hill.The game would also be a rematch of last season’s Week 3 contest between the Browns and the Jets, a game that saw quarterback Baker Mayfield make his NFL debut in a Browns win.A marquee matchup for the Browns will reportedly come in Week 8 when they go on the road to face the New England Patriots. That game will be a 4:25 p.m. contest Orange Bernie Kosar Jerseys , according to Jeff Howe of The Athletic:That will likely be just one of several late-afternoon games for the Browns in the upcoming season. Unless they are moved into a primetime slot, the road games against the Arizona Cardinals, Denver Broncos and San Francisco 49ers will all be later starts. It also wouldn’t be surprising to see the home game against the Los Angeles Rams be at a later time, as well as one (or more) of the divisional games against the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens.The league will announce the schedule live at 8 p.m. on the NFL Network. ESPN2 will have its own schedule release show, also at 8 p.m.
