Browns sign safety Andrew Sendejo to 1-year deal
The Cleveland Browns have been no strangers to making splashes in free agency. It appears they managed to address the defensive side of the ball this time around.
Browns are signing S Andrew Sendejo, source says. It’s a one-year, $2.25 million deal.
Sendejo went undrafted and played in the UFL before getting an opportunity in the NFL with the Dallas Cowboys in 2010. He was finally able to find his footing in Minnesota and eventually managed to etch out a key role for himself over the top alongside safety Harrison Smith.
Sendejo is coming off a tumultuous 2019 NFL season that saw him part ways with the Vikings in the offseason and sign with the Philadelphia Eagles. He was eventually waived during the year and got brought back for the Vikings to finish out the season. He finished the year with 45 tackles, one sack, and a career-high three interceptions.
Cleveland’s decision to sign Sendejo on a prove-it deal helps provide a solid boost to their secondary. They have now managed to bring in a much-needed addition in all facts of the game this offseason. They’ve also added tight end Austin Hooper on offense, and return man JoJo Natson on special teams.
Of course, this is hardly the first time the Browns have made waves in free agency. The onus will ultimately fall on the new regime to make it come to fruition in the 2020 NFL season.
