Harrison won’t be costing the Cleveland Browns much
Ronnie Harrison is due to make $750,000 in 2020 and then $920,000 in 2021, which to me, further illustrates how this was a no-brainer move. For a player that could very well be a key contributor at safety and/or be a nickel/hybrid linebacker-type option in the vast majority of snaps, that’s a steal for the Browns and Berry.
To reiterate, with the Cleveland Browns suffering a crushing blow via the Delpit Achilles tear, and with how they’ve had defensive injuries rampant throughout camp already, this trade acquisition of Harrison to capitalize on the Jacksonville fire sale was a very low-risk move.
It’s also encouraging to know for Browns fans that Harrison will be signed through the next two seasons. Maybe next season, Harrison can continue to build on what seemed to be an upward career trajectory for him from 2019 with the Jags and look to be a lynchpin player or at least high quality depth piece at safety that can fill in a bunch at that nickel role for years to come.
Needless to say, it’s apparent that the Browns and their front office made a low-risk, potentially high-impact move in their trade acquisition of Harrison on Thursday. The former Jaguar and Alabama Crimson Tide thumper should be a nice toy for Woods to deploy throughout games, and on the cheap.
