Andrew Sendejo goes on Jim Rome show, discusses Cleveland Browns signing
This offseason, the Cleveland Browns were able to land a few big fish in free agency. While one, Andrew Billings, ended up opting out due to Covid-19 concerns, they still had several new players to be excited about.
Naturally, we were all excited about the notable names such as tight end Austin Hooper, right tackle Jack Conklin, safety Karl Joseph, and cornerback Kevin Johnson. However, there was another name that they added which didn’t get as much hype, but could still be just as important.
That player is safety Andrew Sendejo, an 11th-year vet who spent nine seasons with the Minnesota Vikings. Recently, Sendejo had a conversation with Jim Rome and explained what led him to sign with the Browns.
One thing he mentioned was his familiarity with this team. Not only did he cross paths with Cleveland head coach Kevin Stefanski, but he also worked under Joe Woods, who was the Vikings defensive backs coach for three seasons while Sendejo was there.
Sendejo also said that when deciding on something such as where to sign, that you have to do “what feels right, and it felt right” to join the Dawg Pound.
From there, he went on to discuss how he’s embracing his role as a veteran leader on this defense. Sendejo said he was fortunate to have some savvy leaders when he was young to learn from and now he believes his job with the Browns is to pass on what he has learned.
So far in two games, Sendejo has had his ups and downs. However, he looked much better in Week 2 than Week 1 and already has 14 tackles as he and the Browns prepare to play the Washington Football Team.
