Cleveland Browns: Safety Ronnie Harrison thrilled to be with a new team

Ronnie Harrison is happy with the Cleveland Browns
After losing Grant Delpit to a torn Achilles, the Cleveland Browns decided to go after another safety and they had a good one fall in their laps. The Jacksonville Jaguars — who are in full tank-mode — unloaded Ronnie Harrison for a fifth-round pick.
That gives the Browns a player capable of starting in the back end of their defense, in exchange for a day three draft pick. Needless to say, Cleveland is very happy with this trade. It’s now apparent that the player is thrilled as well.
Harrison, who was on the practice field Sunday wearing No. 37 for the Browns, tweeted that he was not only thrilled to be away from the Jags, but also that he’s a fan of the Browns unity.
"“So Relieved To Be Out Of Jacksonville And Around A New Team Who Wants One Common Goal! Thank You God!” Harrison wrote on his Twitter account."
Jacksonville is in the midst of one of the biggest tank jobs the NFL has ever seen and their move to get rid of Harrison is just one of the examples. In addition to getting rid of their former starting safety, they also traded Calais Campbell to the Baltimore Ravens, A.J. Bouye to the Denver Broncos, Yannick Ngakoue to the Minnesota Vikings, and released running back Leonard Fournette.
In 2019, they were also moving on from players as they sent Jalen Ramsey to the Los Angeles Rams.
The end goal, it would seem, is to land Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence in the 2021 NFL Draft. Doing so would worth these moves for a team that has never had a legitimate franchise quarterback.
Unfortunately, it does make it hard on players who are there — which is why Harrison is glad to be gone. Having said that, Browns fans can’t help but feel for Joe Schobert, a former favorite in Cleveland, who signed with the Jags this offseason.
