Five Browns players who might be finished in Cleveland
By Dan Justik
Following the 2018 season, Damarious Randall looked like he was well-positioned to receive a sizable contract either through an extension or once he reached the free agent market this offseason. However, after a tumultuous 2019 season, Randall is looking to rebuild his value.
Randall did not have the same impact on the field last season as he did in 2018. After showing the potential of being a play-making deep middle-third safety in 2018, Randall was not making the same type of plays last season.
In 11 games last season, Randall made 61 total tackles, three tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, and six passes defensed.
Randall also did not help his cause as he was one of Cleveland’s most undisciplined players last season. The 27-year-old was ejected from one game for an illegal hit. He also did not join the Browns for a road game after having an incident during the week, causing then head coach Freddie Kitchens to discipline his starting safety.
One of the biggest concerns about Randall during his career has been his attitude. He is not afraid to speak his mind and will tell anyone about how he feels about a certain situation. With a new regime in place, the Browns may not want to deal a potential attitude issue from a player they did not add to the roster.
After the up-and-downs of the 2019 season, Randall would likely prefer to find a new situation this offseason. If the new regime is wanting to build a good culture within the locker room and the organization, it would make sense if they moved on from one of the players who created some of the issues.
