Bills to host Browns for 2 training camp practices

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) Rex Ryan and Mike Pettine are teaming up once again.

The Ryan-coached Bills will host Pettine and the Cleveland Browns for a pair of joint practices at Buffalo's training camp facility in suburban Rochester. The sessions will take place Aug. 17-18, leading up to their preseason game at Cleveland on Aug. 20.

Ryan is entering his first season as the Bills coach after spending the past six years coaching the New York Jets. Pettine is in his second season coaching Cleveland. He was once Ryan's defensive coordinator in New York, before spending the 2013 season in the same role in Buffalo.

The Bills and Browns previously held three joint practices early last decade.

Last year, the Bills held joint practice with Pittsburgh at the Steelers' training camp site.
