2. Cleveland Browns trending back to 2 Safeties
Cleveland Browns corner Greedy Williams talked about defensive coordinator Joe Woods simplifying things, and I think that means the Browns are going to phase out the three-safety scheme Woods has been dead set on implementing.
With this look, the Browns deployed two linebackers, with John Johnson, Ronnie Harrison and Grant Delpit roaming the secondary.
Needless to say, it’s been a disaster, as the Browns have gotten burned for some big-time touchdown throws to wide open receivers as the aforementioned players look lost trying to figure out who blew the coverage.
We saw more two-safety looks last week, with Ronnie Harrison and Grant Delpit splitting time on the field, with each playing around 29 snaps.
I think we’ll see more Delpit in the classic free safety role, while Johnson will play closer the line of scrimmage, a spot have written, where he could have more of an impact.
