Sendejo is signing a one-year, $2.25 million contract with the Browns, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Sendejo was a consistent starter for the Vikings from 2015 to 2017, but a groin injury limited him to five appearances in 2018 and he then signed with Philadelphia last offseason. The Eagles ended up waiving him in November, at which point Sendejo landed back with the Vikings and ended up starting a couple more games. He'd ideally be used as a No. 3 safety and key special teams player, but the current state of Cleveland's depth chart suggests the 32-year-old might get a starting job.
Sendejo finished the regular season with 17 tackles (13 solo), two defended passes and two interceptions across six games with the Vikings. He added six tackles (two solo) and one interception over Minnesota's two playoff games, Additionally, Sendejo appeared in nine regular-season contests with the Eagles, notching 28 tackles (23 solo), one sack, two defended passes and one interception. Once he rejoined Minnesota, Sendejo played a key defensive role, filling in at nickel cornerback with both Mike Hughes (neck) and Mackensie Alexander (shoulder) on injured reserve. Sendejo is set to become an unrestricted free agent, though the team could opt to re-sign him.
Sendejo tallied seven tackles (four solo) and an interception in Sunday's 27-23 win over the Broncos. Sendejo started at free safety in this contest and was excellent in his first game with the Vikings this year. The 32-year-old led Minnesota in tackles, and he intercepted Brandon Allen on the Vikings' two-yard line to keep the team from falling behind further before halftime. The Vikings don't play again until Dec. 2 against the Seahawks, and Sendejo's usage for that matchup likely relies on the health of Harrison Smith (hamstring) and Anthony Harris (groin).
Sendejo (groin) is active for Sunday's game against Denver and expected to start at safety opposite Harrison Smith, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports Sendejo sat out last Sunday's win over the Cowboys but returned to practice as a limited participant this week. The veteran safety spent the first nine weeks of the season with the Eagles but was waived and claimed by the Vikings on Nov. 6. He'll get the start with Anthony Harris out.
