The Cleveland Browns were wise to add Ronnie Harrison

The Cleveland Browns recently had a crushing injury blow, as rookie second-round pick Grant Delpit went down with an Achilles tear. Delpit was a player that the Browns had high hopes for, and could’ve really helped solidify Cleveland’s back end in 2020.

Unfortunately, Delpit is more than likely out for all of the upcoming campaign, which is rough for the Brown and Orange. That said, fortunately, Cleveland recently added what could very well be a quality contributor via trade.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are amid what is seemingly a tank for the storybooks, and even us Browns fans would attest to that.

Jacksonville recently traded talented pass rusher Yannick Ngakoue to the Minnesota Vikings and released running back Leonard Fournette, for instance. Additionally, from a Browns’ perspective involving Jacksonville’s rebuild, the Jags dealt safety Ronnie Harrison, a recent third-round pick, to Cleveland in exchange for a 2021 fifth-rounder.

That’s per a report from The NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport on Thursday, and for now, it’s uncertain whether or not that’s a fifth-round pick from the Browns or the Los Angeles Rams.

Anyway, from the Browns’ view, it’s clear that this is a low-risk move that can pay dividends.

This Cleveland Browns trade acquisition of Harrison was a no-brainer

For Cleveland and general manager Andrew Berry, this is truly a no-brainer move. The Browns honestly fleeced the Jags here, as DPD’s Mitch Zoloty detailed, as Harrison is only 23 years old, and came on last season for Jacksonville.

Harrison is a player that should provide Cleveland with a good safety option to go to in the upcoming season, and is coming off a productive campaign in his second season.
