The Cleveland Browns needed help on defense, so they went out and added Deion Jones, who is set to play against the Patriots in Week 6

Deion Jones was added on Sunday following the Cleveland Browns loss to the Los Angles Chargers and it looks as though he’s going to be on the field just one week later as his new team hosts the New England Patriots in Week 6.

A former Pro Bowler, Jones knew his time was up with the Atlanta Falcons, who placed him on the IR despite him being able to suit up for a preseason game. For the Browns, they were able to add him for a late-round pick, and Atlanta took on much of his salary.

Now getting used to his new home, Jones said he’s focused on staying”dangerous” and says he’s ready to face the New England Patriots in Week 6. He added that you can’t mistakes against this team.

"“We know the run game, just basically everything,” Jones said. “Just being locked in and moving forward. You can’t make a lot of mistakes with the Patriots.”"

Clearly, Jones knows this all too well since his team was the one that coughed up a 28-3 lead against Tom Brady and the Patriots in the Super Bowl. Of course, Brady is no longer in New England but they’re still a team that makes very few mistakes and capitalizes when others do.

Former Deion Jones teammate added as well

Jones isn’t the only new addition as the Browns followed up his signing by bringing in a former teammate of his in Tyeler Davison. A seven-year veteran, Davison spent four seasons with the New Orleans Saints and three with the Falcons.

He’s played in 105 games with 86 starts in his career. At 30 years of age, Davison won’t be a long-term answer but he has the smarts and strength to make a difference in the run game — and right now, any difference would be welcome by this Cleveland defense.

Hopefully, these two can help turn things around after Cleveland was gashed on the ground to the tune of 200-plus in back-to-back weeks.
