2. Andrew Sendejo

You know my rap by now. I really, really, really don’t like putting Andrew Sendejo on this list week after week, yet here he is again.

How can he not be here? If the Browns give up a big play downfield, No. 23 is almost always certainly to be in the camera shot, having arrived too late to make a difference.

That was the case, yet again, against the Colts. He gave up two big plays in coverage, with one coming when Ashton Dulin grabbed a Rivers’ pass for 36 yards running a fly pattern. Sendejo was late in picking it up and frankly, the Browns are lucky that play didn’t go for six.

Sendejo also blew a missed tackle with around four minutes remaining. Had he converted the takedown, it would of put the Colts in a 3rd and long situation.

I don’t like hammering him weekly because he’s a backup who was elevated to starter after Grant Delpit was lost for the season.

That said, the NFL doesn’t take charity cases. The Browns signed the veteran because they thought he could play. He remains the biggest liability and defense.
