This is the 23rd 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.
#39- Terrance Mitchell– CB- Oregon
I call this guy Terrance Mitchell “And Ness” because he is a bit of a throwback. He was a seventh-round draft pick by the Cowboys in 2014, who had to work hard to become a starter on last season’s Browns squad. Terrance was having a very good start to the season last year before missing nine weeks due to a fractured wrist. I’m sure the veteran cornerback is looking to snapback from the injury this season.
As I said, Mitchell played well in his limited time on the field last year. He only played in half the games but was able to record 38 tackles, six passes defended, one interception, and two forced fumbles. He partnered well with Denzel Ward when he was on the field.
John Dorsey brought in a little competition for the former Oregon Duck this season, selecting Greedy Williams in the second round of this year’s draft. However, if Mitchell’s past has taught me anything it’s that you should never count him out. He has been competing for his spot on teams for four years now and I wouldn’t expect anything different this season. If anything, this competition could help all parties involved and continue to build quality depth for what could be a very good Browns defense.
