4 Cleveland Browns players that have disappointed so far in training camp
2. Ronnie Harrison, S
It was a bit of a surprise when the Browns brought back Ronnie Harrison for 2022 on a one-year deal but they likely didn’t have anyone else they felt great about fall to them in the draft — or maybe no one in their price range become available in free agency.
Harrison was originally added in a trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars and he was a great addition to the Browns roster in 2020. However, 2021 got off to a rough start for him as he was ejected from their Week 1 loss to Kansas City after shoving Greg Lewis (the Chiefs assistant started the fight, but Harrison needed to walk away).
From there, he continued to find himself getting penalized at the absolute worst times. On top of that, he struggled quite a bit in pass coverage.
That problem has continued into camp as Harrison has found himself chasing receivers down more than once. Cleveland doesn’t usually play him in too much deep coverage because of this and to Harrison’s credit, he’s excellent near the line in run support.
The problem is that this is a passing league and teams are going to find ways to get players such as Harrison into coverage situations. When it does happen, they need him to simply keep from being burnt.
