The Cleveland Browns will need helpat the safety position this year as rookie Grant Delpit just went down for the year with a torn Achilles.
Elsewhere in the division, the Baltimore Ravens recently released Pro Bowl safety, Earl Thomas due to conduct detrimental. When asked if this was a player the Browns would pursue, coach Kevin Stefanski told Cleveland.com “I’ll leave that in (general manager) Andrew Berry’s court.”
Delpit was expected to help lead the Browns defense to success this season, but now Cleveland will have to pursue other options, which Thomas could be one.
The 31-year old, former three-time All-Pro could surely fill the void left by the promising rookie, should Cleveland sign him. In his lone season with Baltimore, Thomas started all 15-games he appeared in, had four interceptions, two sacks, and 49 tackles.
For a team full of defensive injuries and question marks, Thomas could help in a variety of ways. Time will tell where Thomas lands and continues his career.
