Adam Schefter claims the Cleveland Browns could land Earl Thomas
Things have gotten bad for the Cleveland Browns during their 2020 training camp as players have been coming up injured in just about every practice. Monday was no exception as they lost Grant Delpit and Greedy Williams on the same day.
Williams was said to have a shoulder injury but the severity is unknown. As for Delpit, things were much worse as the rookie second round pick is going to miss his first year in the NFL due to a torn Achilles.
With Delpit being out, the Browns could rely on their depth which includes Karl Joseph, Andrew Sendejo, and Sheldrick Redwine. Or they could go for a huge splash and sign Earl Thomas — who was just released by the Baltimore Ravens.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, that’s a real possibility. Jeff Lloyd of PFN says Sechefter was on Sports Center Tuesday claiming the Browns could land Thomas.
The former All-Pro safety was let go after a fight with teammate Chuck Clark, although that wasn’t the only reason for his release. Thomas was also involved in a bizarre incident this offseason that ended with his wife putting a gun to his head after finding him (and his brother) in an entanglement with other women.
There was also apparently more going on as the players in Baltimore asked their head coach, Jon Harbaugh, to have Thomas removed from the team. He decided it was best to listen to his players and the Ravens are now going back after some of the money Thomas was given last season when they signed him.
Of course, most have heard by now that Thomas’ desire is to return to Texas and play for the Dallas Cowboys. So far, it seems they’re not ready to make a move which could open the door for Cleveland — should they so desire.
Our own Casey Kinnamon thinks it’s not an ideal fit whereas Nick Pedone is all for it. Still, the Browns have not come out and said one way or another what their plans are. And with how they built this roster, and how well players such as Sender and Redwine have been in camp, it wouldn’t be surprising to see them take a polite pass here.
