This is the 32nd installment of a series of articles covering each player on the Cleveland Browns roster. There will be a new player released every day from now until the Browns preseason begins. If you enjoy (tolerate) this article, I encourage you to check back each day to read each one. I try to keep these articles short and sweet.

#35- Jermaine Whitehead– S- Auburn

Opposing teams need to beware because Whitehead can pop up anywhere, especially when you least want him to. He is an annoying defender that just won’t go away. The entire field is going to be covered with Whitehead. So much so, that First Energy Stadium in Cleveland is going to look like my face during my junior year of Homecoming. Just a heads up for opposing wide receivers, Whitehead can cover you in the blink of an eye. They should be “proactive” and prepare for him.

Just like fellow safety, Morgan Burnett, he is a former Green Bay Packer. He played in 19 games over parts of three seasons for the Cheeseheads before being waived and signed by the Browns last year. He played the final seven games of 2018 with Cleveland, recording four tackles in the process.

It’s obviously very early in the offseason, but Whitehead has received high praise from Steve Wilks, the Browns defensive coordinator. Wilks spoke of him as an intelligent player who is becoming a leader on the defense, helping teammates line up correctly. There are a lot of new faces in the Browns defensive backfield and it will be interesting to see how things play out on that side of the ball. Perhaps Whitehead will prove to be another one of John Dorsey’s diamonds in the rough.

Just think if the browns would have taken Josh Allen

Who have they beat?

It’s bad play calling it’s bad execution. Nick it’s 3 years of baker still not settling in and playing his game

After this year if baker doesn’t prove himself. Would you rather see the browns let him go and find a new QB in the draft?

Nick, you’re the only browns fan that I love❤️ next game will be PSU vs OSU❤️
