Browns agree to terms with John Johnson III

The Rams don’t have the cap dollars to keep the players they currently have; they weren’t going to have enough to sign safety John Johnson III on the open market.

The Browns do, and did.

Per multiple reports, the Browns are signing Johnson to a three-year deal. Via NFL Media, it’s worth $33 million, with $24 million in guarantees. (That’s apparently not $24 million in full guarantees.)

Johnson joins a last line of defense that includes Ronnie Harrison and Grant Delpit. Andrew Sendejo, a starter in 2021, is a free agent.

Coach Kevin Stefanski could have pursued Vikings safety Anthony Harris, a player in whom the Browns were interested last year. They went for Johnson instead.

  1. As a Lions Fan I’m bummed. If we have to watch Chris Harris take the field again…

  2. Bummed to see him go but it was a forgone conclusion. Browns fans should be very happy about this. Solid leader and a ballhawk
