Another position that Andrew Berry completely turned over from a year ago is the safety room in Cleveland. From starting Damarious Randall and Jermaine Whitehead a year ago, both have departed from Cleveland as Berry went out and lured in former first rounder in Karl Joseph and the journeyman and experienced Andrew Sendejo. With Sheldrick Redwine already on the roster as well after being selected in the fourth round a year ago, the Browns drafted LSU safety Grant Delpit in the second round as well.
However with Delpit rupturing his achilles and knowing the versatility new defensive coordinator Joe Woods hopes to deploy with his safeties, the Browns may go out and add another on the waiver wire. Behind Redwine, there is no set fourth safety, so if a proven veteran comes on the market, the Browns could be players after waiving J.T. Hassell.
The only other safeties on the Browns’ roster currently are undrafted free agents, which is less than ideal for a defense that utilizes their safeties in a variety of look, sometimes with four on the field at a time. Joseph, Sendejo, and Redwine are set in stone, but what will the Browns do about that fourth slot after moving Delpit to the injured reserve?
