The Lions traded Bademosi to the Patriots in exchange for a 2019 sixth-round draft pick, ESPN's Michael Rothstein reports. Both teams seemed to benefit here, as the Lions get extra draft capital while the win-now Patriots receive a proficient special teams player who can contribute from the get-go.
The Lions and Bademosi agreed to a two-year contract Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Bademosi has made his bones in the NFL as a special-teams ace, culminating in a career-high 27 tackles and one fumble recovery last season. With the move from Cleveland to Detroit, the opportunity may exist for Bademosi to play a role in a rejiggered secondary, but containment on kick and punt returns will again be on the docket.
The Browns have reportedly re-signed safety Johnson Bademosi and inside linebacker Craig Robertson, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Caplan. Bademosi totaled 12 tackles in 14 games last season while Robertson made 99 tackles with two interceptions and one touchdown in all 16 games.
The Browns announced they tendered qualifying offers to four restricted free agents: safety Tashaun Gipson, linebacker Craig Robertson, defensive lineman Ishmaa'ily Kitchen and special teams ace Johnson Bademosi. Cleveland can now match any offer those players receive.
The Browns ruled Jordan Cameron (concussion) and Marlon Moore (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Karlos Dansby (knee) was the only player deemed doubtful, while Jabaal Sheard (foot) and Johnson Bademosi (concussion) were labeled questionable on Cleveland's final injury report for Week 12. Meanwhile. the following players were ruled as probable: Barkevious Mingo (shoulder), Ahtyba Rubin (knee) and Desmond Bryant (wrist).
