Ranking the Cleveland Browns initial offseason moves by order of importance
By Randy Gurzi
7. Signed Andrew Sendejo
The Browns were linked to Anthony Harris but apparently the price the Minnesota Vikings wanted in exchange was too high. Instead, they landed another former Vikings safety in Andrew Sendejo. While last season wasn’t his best campaign, Sendejo is a savvy veteran and was a great addition following the loss of Eric Murray and Damarious Randall — as well as the release of Morgan Burnett.

Cleveland’s secondary had their highs and lows in 2019 and the safety group was a sore spot. Getting him, as well as Karl Joseph — who will be mentioned soon — helps them tremendously as they look to improve a struggling defense.
6. Signed Kevin Johnson
Former general manager John Dorsey has made his share of great moves. He’s also made his share of questionable ones. One such move was the signing of cornerback T.J. Carrie. While he was a good slot corner, Dorsey overpaid him which is why he was released by Andrew Berry.
While the move was understandable, it left Cleveland thin at cornerback. They countered this by signing Kevin Johnson, a former first-round pick out of Wake Forrest. Johnson began his career with the Houston Texans but was bothered by injuries and ended up with the Buffalo Bills last season.
With him on the roster, Cleveland is now four-deep at cornerback with Denzel Ward, Greedy Williams, and Terrance Mitchell all likely to receive extensive playing time.
