The Browns lost three Antworten

defensive players to injuries and two of them will not return to action this season.Cornerback E.J. Gaines and linebacker Christian Kirksey were placed on injured reserve Wednesday. Cornerback Denzel Ward was the other starter to go down Womens Jabrill Peppers Jersey , but his hip injury does not appear to be a season-ender.Gaines suffered a concussion on a first quarter touchdown by Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt. The Week Nine game was his first game back after missing two games with another concussion and two head injuries in close succession is never a good sign for a player.Gaines also missed Week One with a knee injury and had 13 tackles and an interception in six games.Kirksey hurt his hamstring in the second half against the Chiefs. The veteran missed time earlier in the year with shoulder and ankle injuries as well. He had 43 tackles and two interceptions in seven appearances.The Browns filled one of the roster spots by signing cornerback Juston Burris off of the Jets practice squad. Burris was a fourth-round pick in 2016 and played in four games for the Jets this season, but was not active for their Week Three loss to the Browns.Cleveland Browns Training Camp 2018: S Preview, Part 1 At last, we are on to our final positional preview for Cleveland Browns training camp! We will take a look at the safeties in two parts; part one will look at the starters and the two players most closely behind them on the depth chart.Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports1. Jabrill Peppers - Starting Strong SafetyHeight: 5-11 | Weight: 213 lbs | Age: 22Experience: 2 years | College: MichiganIt took long enough.After seeing Jabrill Peppers stuck as the deep free safety for most of 2017, Gregg Williams has finally come around on the obvious decision to move him to the box as a strong safety in 2018. Williams will tout the invaluable position versatility that Peppers now has as a result of last year, but I don’t care what he says, it was his worst personnel decision by far last year.Peppers needs to be near the line of scrimmage where he has a better chance at making an impact on the ball as opposed to dictating whether teams throw it deep or not. According to Pro Football Focus Authentic Jarvis Landry Jersey , Peppers played 88.2% of his snaps at free safety from Weeks 1-15 as a rookie, with poor results (i.e. remember how many poor angles he took when having to come up to make a tackle in the open field). However, in the final two weeks, only 32.1% of his snaps were at free safety due to an injury to Derrick Kindred, and Peppers responded with “his best run-defense grade of the year” in Week 16 and an interception to go along with a solid outing in Week 17.Final Roster Odds: 100%Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports2. Damarious Randall - Starting Free SafetyHeight: 5-11 | Weight: 196 lbs | Age: 25Experience: 4 years | College: Arizona StateThe Browns acquired Damarious Randall from the Packers this offseason and made the immediate decision to switch him from cornerback to free safety. The past three years, he has mostly played cornerback in the NFL, but has experience at the safety spot from his college days at Arizona State. The Browns’ front office is also familiar with Randall.In terms of his personality , there is no doubt that Randall isn’t afraid to be a talker. He mixed it up on social media last year regarding Josh Gordon after the two faced each other in Cleveland. Then, this offseason, he openly cheered for Steph Curry against the Cavaliers, and had his “jersey promise” tweet go so viral that it became the most viral sports tweet by an athlete of all time.I personally liked some of the feisty play I saw out of Randall last year. I don’t know how that translates to the free safety spot where he will be lonely without a player within 30 yards of him. The main element I am looking for is how his open field tackling is if Randall ends up being the last line of defense. Here is what the Browns’ defensive backs coach said about Randall a few weeks ago:Final Roster Odds: 99%Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports3. Derrick Kindred - Backup Strong SafetyHeight: 5-10 | Weight: 210 lbs | Age: 24Experience: 3 years | College: TCUMake no mistake about it: Derrick Kindred is still in Gregg Williams’ plans on defense. Even though we were up in arms about Jabrill Peppers not being the starting strong safety last year, the truth is that Kindred did a fine job as the starter in his own right.This offseason, Williams said Kindred was “one of the best strong safeties he’s had the chance to coach in his career in the run game and zone pass game.” Kindred was one of the Browns’ top-5 graded defenders last season and is definitely a force as a run-stopper. The task for Williams will be how he finds playing time for both Kindred and Peppers. This is a great case where Williams should see it as a blessing rather than a curse, because he can substitute and mix-and-match to keep guys fresh. I think there could be times we also see three safeties in the game Womens Darren Fells Jersey , with Peppers playing more of a specialty role depending on the package.Final Roster Odds: 99%Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports4. Derron Smith - Backup SafetyHeight: 5-10 | Weight: 200 lbs | Age: 26Experience: 4 years | College: Fresno StateDerron Smith was a 6th round pick by the Cincinnati Bengals in 2015, so Hue Jackson had some familiarity with him. He only had 13 career tackles with Cincinnati before picked plucked off of their practice squad in mid-November of 2017. Smith played in 7 games with the Browns, registering 4 tackles.The Browns will be looking for a backup free safety in camp this year, but Smith won’t have much of a leg up for that spot compared to the four undrafted rookie free agents who will appear in Part 2 of our safety preview. Smith has primarily been a special teams contributor, but maybe a change of scenery and being in camp with the team for the first time will help him make more of an impression.Final Roster Odds: 30% Custom Minnesota Vikings Jerseys
