  • Browns' Grant Delpit: Injured in practice

Delpit stayed down on the field and ultimately walked off the field and into the facility with trainers after suffering the injury during an 11-on-11 drill. The 24-year-old is a key piece of the Browns' secondary, so any kind of significant injury would certainly be a blow to the team.

  • Browns' Grant Delpit: Quiet finale

    Delpit had two tackles in a 28-14 loss to Pittsburgh in Week 18. Delpit had a strong second half of the season, recording 55 tackles and three interceptions in the eight games leading up to Week 18 but finished on a quiet note against the Steelers. He led the team with 105 tackles and was on the field for every defensive snap, save for one when he was held off the field at the start Week 10's game against Miami due to disciplinary reasons. Delpit was one of several players to be disciplined for unspecified behavior at points during the season. Cleveland's defense was seen as the primary reason for the team's disappointing season, and the organization let defensive coordinator Joe Woods go because of the unit's performance. Delpit should return as a starter at safety in 2023.

  • Browns' Grant Delpit: Torn Achilles feared

    The Browns fear Delpit tore his Achilles at Monday's practice, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Delpit was selected by the Browns in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft and was expected to start at free safety this season. If a torn Achilles is confirmed, it will bring his rookie campaign to a premature end. Andrew Sendejo would be the prime candidate to start at free safety if that is indeed the case.

  • Browns' Grant Delpit: Ready to answer critics

    Delpit (ankle) enters the NFL motivated to change the perception that he has issues tackling, Shaun Bennett of the Chronicle-Telegram reports. The Browns drafted Delpit in the second round (44th overall) of the 2020 draft. Delpit was ranked higher by some evaluators, but the tackling issue stuck after the safety was credited with 38 missed tackles over the last two seasons. "I'm so tired of hearing that I can't tackle, I might tackle you for asking that question," Delpit said with a big smile Friday night. A high-ankle sprain may have influenced that perception, but Browns general manager Andrew Berry acknowledged Delpit will need to work on tackling technique. "I think that he would be the first to admit that it is something that is going to be a focus of him as an area of improvement coming into the NFL," Berry said. Aside from the ankle, scouts believe he takes bad angles in pursuit, fails to calm his feet, and looks for the big hit instead of proper technique. The Browns see him playing both safety positions and lining up at multiple areas of the field. "It just allows you a lot more flexibility as a defensive coordinator when you have a guy who can play the post proficiently, who can play in the line of scrimmage, cover tight ends and play big nickel. We think that is something that Grant will be able to do at the NFL level," added Berry.
