3. Cleveland Browns S Ronnie Harrison
A year ago at this time, it looked like Cleveland Browns GM Andrew Berry fleeced the Jaguars in a trade acquiring John Johnson III.
Now, it looks like Harrison won’t be back in 2021, as free agency awaits.
Harrison’s made some dumb, head-scratching penalties on late hits and shoving a coach on the sidelines, all the while allowing six touchdowns in coverage. He’s usually in the camera shot when the Browns blow coverage on a deep touchdown pass.
If you were a quarterback, though, you’d be throwing his way. Opposing quarterbacks enjoy a 113.0 passer rating when they go toward Harrison.
Perhaps it isn’t fair to blame Harrison, as the Browns are asking him to play out of his comfort zone. He’s better suited playing closer to the line of scrimmage. That said, he’s a safety. You’ve got to cover at some point, and when he’s asked to do it, he’s been torched.
In defense of Harrison, he was a big-time contributor against the Ravens, logging 14 tackles and an interception. He did contribute to a big-time pass interference penalty, though.
Hopefully he rebounds after the Bye, but it’s not trending that way.
