Damarious Randall, FS
Damarious Randall gets involved in a big play seemingly every game, and that was the case again, as the former Green Bay Pakcer had another interception, finished off with a 50-yard return.
He now has two interceptions on the season, in addition to a fumble recovery and six passes defensed.
Randall’s signing is paying off for the Browns, who signed the free agent with the intention of switching him from corner to free safety, which is what he played in college.
He was the Browns’ highest graded defensive player* and was on the field for 83 snaps.
Randall’s play must continue to be at a high level if the secondary is going to maintain it’s turnover ways because of the crushing blow the Browns were delivered in the form of a fractured wrist to Terrance Mitchell.
Finding a free safety has long been a been a problem for the Browns, magnified by Jabrill Peppers playing the position one year ago. Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams had him playing 20 yards off the ball last season, with the sole intent of not making a total screw-up of the position.
With Randall, that’s changed.
