The team announced they signed safety Jabrill Peppers to his rookie contract. Peppers was the last of the Browns‘ draft picks, which included other first-rounders DE Myles Garrett and TE David Njoku, to ink a deal.
The No. 25 overall pick was drafted by Cleveland for his ability to play safety, but coach Hue Jackson said in the spring that the former Michigan standout will see some time on offense as well.
“He’s a football player, a very dynamic player,” Jackson said. “Obviously, he’s going to play defense for us, but we’ll find a role for him over there on offense. No question.”
