Veteran safety Andrew Sendejo is on the way to Cleveland.

Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports that the Browns are signing Sendejo to a one-year, $2.25 million deal.

Sendejo played for the Vikings from 2011 to 2018, then briefly played for the Eagles last year before he was waived by Philadelphia and returned to Minnesota. There was some talk that the Vikings would bring him back this year, but apparently the Browns showed more interest.

The 32-year-old Sendejo was initially a little-noticed undrafted rookie who saw his first pro football action with the Sacaramento Mountain Lions of the United Football League in 2010. He then spent time with the Cowboys and Jets before landing with the Vikings.

  1. Amazing to think he’s gone from a nobody playing in the UFL to having made over $15mil in the NFL

  2. Good. As crappy as the Vikings pass defense was, let the purge continue…I don’t understand the people that complain about losing the top three corners from a pass defense that struggled all season…get some new blood in there…Hughes, Hill and TBD sound better than trotting out the same characters from last season and hoping for a different result…

  3. Pretty much thought ‘Dejo proved himself last year in his return to MN. Surprised he left us again.

  4. Never was a fan of his “Everyone watch me do a victory lap around the whole field because I made a routine play while my team is down by 2+ possessions” attitude. That said, he did play pretty well filling in as a slot corner last post season. I won’t lose any sleep over this though.

  5. A good player for the Vikes but time to get younger and retool. I’m not one of those fans who try to justify a player leaving by bad mouthing them on their way out. Thanks Dayho!

  6. Sounds like he’s moving up on the ladder, from a dumpster fire to a simple train wreck.

  7. Berry making his stamp on FA with authority. We will see what if the new coaching staff can utilize these new acquisitions and have them learn their roles in the team. Lessons learned from a disappointing 2019 season.

  8. Between Cleveland and Cincinnati, the state of Ohio appears to like Vikings defensive backs…

    Sendejo is a hard hitting safety. That has been both a good thing and a bad thing.

    Too many 15 yard penalties…

  9. *Whew* Glad he’s gone. Whiffed tackles, out of position, and good for at least one 15 yard penalty a game.

  10. This is a vet that will provide help at safety. I am sure the Browns will draft one too. He may be just a rotational guy to help teach and fill in. Nothing wrong with that on a minimal one year deal.

  11. Also, with the way things are right now, it is smart to bring people in that you already know. You can’t sit face to face right now so why not sign guys you know to minimal contracts.

  12. Other than his dumb unnecessary roughness penalties, I always liked Sendejo. I was also surprised by his mobility when pressed into slot corner duties during the playoffs. His days as a starter are likely over, but he’s a good depth guy — on a team with ample cap space.
