3. John Reid could be Cleveland Browns CB6
The Browns went with Denzel Ward, Greedy Williams, Troy Hill, and Greg Newsome II at cornerback as expected. What wasn’t expected was for them to stick with six corners as they also still have M.J. Stewart and A.J. Green on the roster.
Stewart is a player who gets a lot of grief but his addition makes sense. He’s capable in the slot and can even perform some of the duties expected from a safety — which will help if they stick with just four safeties as they did on the initial depth chart.
As for Green, he was a player who was in high demand last season as an undrafted free agent but has yet to really make a name for himself. And in the preseason, the only time he really stood out was when he tried to intercept a punt and got a 15-yard penalty against Atlanta. Not the best way to make an impression.
All of that being said, the Browns might not be 100 percent set with this room. For that reason, they could have a wandering eye and if so, John Reid could end up catching their attention.
A fourth-round pick from Penn State, Reid played for Houston last season and had 13 tackles in 13 games with one start. He was traded to Seattle earlier this offseason but never made the team, but that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t be worth a look in Cleveland.
