Nick Harris didn’t want to use the word doubt.

A fifth-round pick out of Washington in 2020, Harris spent the first two years of his career stuck behind one of the NFL’s most durable centers in JC Tretter, who didn’t miss a snap after he signed with the Browns in 2017. Tretter played through anything, including a nasty high ankle sprain in 2018 that had him fighting to get to Sundays on adrenaline and an aggressive treatment plan.

The Browns released Tretter in March, clearing the way for Harris to take over the position, one where he knows he belongs.

“I learned a lot of stuff about just how to be a professional center, because it’s more than what meets the eye,” Harris said. “Just how he was in the meeting rooms, how his discussions with (offensive line coach Bill (Callahan) were and how his discussions were with (offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt) because the center needs to know a lot of stuff.”
