Cleveland Browns News: Why Jermaine Whitehead could be a starter
The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including how Jermaine Whitehead is emerging as a potential starter.
Since the beginning of Cleveland Browns OTA’s, one player who has emerged as a surprising standout has been defensive back Jermaine Whitehead.
Primarily playing in a special teams role for Cleveland last season, Whitehead is seeing a bigger role in Steve Wilks’ defense. But not only is he playing in a bigger role, but Wilks believes Whitehead is one of the leaders of the defense.
With a defense boasting plenty of talent at all three levels, Whitehead’s emergence has come out of nowhere. But by the time training camp rolls around, Whitehead could find himself on the field often.

Because Wilks rarely plays in a traditional base defense, it makes sense an extra defensive back is going to be on the field. But Whitehead being the player getting the reps is mildly surprising because of the other talent on the Cleveland Browns defense.
