the born in cleveland, Ohiois one of four players with 10-plus interceptions and 50-plus passes defensed since being drafted in 2018, by the Brown’s.

The owner of jersey number 21 has been selected at Pro Bowl in 2018 and 2021, and has the fourth-highest coverage mark among cornerbacks since 2018 with a minimum of 1,000 plays, thanks to his speed and anticipation.

Some injuries have limited the potential of the cornerback, who has not been able to play a full season since his arrival at cleveland, a team with which he has appeared in 13 games or fewer in each of his first three seasons; in 2021 he had 15 starts.

For the 2022 season, cleveland will have in Denzel Ward and in Greg Newsomto two of the best cornerbacks in the league, promising that the Los Angeles secondary defense Brown’s be one of the best NFL.

With the amount invested to keep the defensive back on the roster, the quarterback’s permanence looks further and further away Baker Mayfieldwho a few days ago accused the Brown’s of having disrespected him for having made four changes of coach in four years.
