Yes, the Browns gave safety Donte Whitner a long-delayed entry into free agency. No, that isn’t stopping the veteran defensive back from drawing interest.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Whitner has arrived in Los Angeles for a visit with the Rams.
The three-time Pro Bowler, who entered the NFL as the No. 8 overall pick in the draft 10 years ago, has played for the Bills, 49ers, and Browns. If he signs with the Rams, he’ll return to the NFC West, where he spent three seasons in San Francisco — each of which culminated in the NFC title game or better.
The Browns cut Whitner eight days ago, only two days before the start of the offseason program and more than three weeks after the start of the 2016 league year.
