Can they cover?
The Browns lost a free safety for the year in Grant Delpit and then traded for a player who better projects as a long-term strong safety in Ronnie Harrison. This probably says more about the linebacking corps more than anything.
Remember the three-safety looks the Browns trotted out last year? They’ll do it again under new defensive coordinator Joe Woods. Hopefully it works out better.
At free safety, Andrew Sendejo went from an afterthought free-agent signing to the starting free safety in wake of Delpit’s season-ending injury.
Terrance “Money” Mitchell went from a guy we’d all thought would be cut after the draft, to someone potentially starting Week 1.
Williams hasn’t been seen at practice since a day one shoulder injury–and no, I’m not talking about suiting up, he’s not even out there taking mental reps. The Browns have said nothing about the second-year veteran and his status remains a great mystery.
Besides Williams, the Kevin Johnson is still working his way back from a lacerated liver suffered in camp.
That leaves M.J. Stewart as nickel corner and even he was injured, although, he was practicing Monday despite questions about his hamstring.
