Donte Whitner , who had just one tackle in Week 17, finished the year second on the team with 81 combined tackles (58 solo), 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble.
Whitner may have been able to flirt with last season's team-leading total, but he missed two games earlier in the year due to a concussion. He broke a streak of recording an interception in five straight seasons, but still managed a career-best sack total, as the Cleveland Browns seemingly had to get more creative with their pass rush scheme. At 30 years old, he'll have several more seasons under contract to cement his legacy in the league, though his year's as a productive IDP option may be dwindling.
