Browns' Grant Delpit: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kevin Stefanski said Wednesday that Delpit (Achilles) has been cleared to return to practice, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

The safety looks like he'll be ready to go for training camp after he missed his entire rookie campaign due to a torn Achilles' tendon. The LSU product is set to battle veteran John Johnson and Ronnie Harrison for a starting role at safety.

Browns' Grant Delpit: Should be ready for camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Delpit (Achilles) is on track to be 100 percent healthy for training camp, Scott Petrak of Browns Zone reports.

Delpit missed his entire rookie season after suffering a torn Achilles in last year's camp. Had he been healthy last season, Delpit likely would have been in line for a starting gig at safety. Even with the Browns adding an experienced option to the secondary this offseason in John Johnson, Delpit should play a sizable role in 2021.

Browns' Grant Delpit: Expected for 2021
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cleveland head coach Kevin Stefanski expects Delpit (Achilles) to be fully recovered in time for the 2021 season, Andrew Gribble of the Browns' official website reports.

Delpit, the Browns second-round draft pick in 2020, tore his Achilles during training camp and missed his rookie season. His return will bolster what was a shaky back end, although Ronnie Harrison helped stabilize the safety position following his acquisition.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns placed Delpit (Achilles) on injured reserve Tuesday.

Delpit suffered a season-ending Achilles injury during Monday's practice. The rookie second-round pick appeared in line to handle a starting gig Year 1, but instead he'll now turn his focus toward rehabbing for 2021. The Browns now turn to Andrew Sendejo and Sheldrick Redwine as candidates to start at free safety.

Browns' Grant Delpit: Out for season with Achilles tear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Delpit will miss the entire 2020 season after tests confirmed he suffered a torn Achilles tendon, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

The rookie second-round pick out of LSU was expected to compete for a starting job at free safety. He'll now shift his focus to a lengthy rehab process, with the timing of the injury likely allowing him to return at full strength for training camp next year. Andrew Sendejo and Sheldrick Redwine are the candidates to start at free safety for the Browns now.

Browns' Grant Delpit: Torn Achilles feared
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: May have Achilles injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

There is concern that Delpit suffered an Achilles injury Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The rookie safety is undergoing testing after being carted off the field during Monday's practice. The Browns selected Delpit in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 44th overall, and the 6-foot-2, 213-pounder has been pushing for a key role in the team's secondary.

Browns' Grant Delpit: Takes first-team snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Delpit lined up at both safety positions with the first-team defense during Monday's practice, Andrew Gribble of the Browns' official site reports.

Delpit stepped onto the first team as Karl Joseph (foot) did not participate in the team's first practice in pads. Joseph and Andrew Sendejo are the presumed starters at safety, but the rookie Delpit is preparing to push the veterans at strong or free safety.

Browns' Grant Delpit: Pens rookie contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns signed Delpit to a four-year contract on Wednesday, George Thomas of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Delpit becomes the final member of Cleveland's draft class to officially sign. The 44th overall selection of April's draft, Delpit entered his final year at LSU with first-round buzz, but he dropped to the second round due to somewhat inconsistent play in 2019. A high-ankle sprain also kept him from participating at the NFL Scouting Combine. Nevertheless, the 21-year-old should see a clear path to playing time as a rookie, with a starting role at free safety being a realistic possibility.

Browns' Grant Delpit: Ready to answer critics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Browns' Grant Delpit: Heads to Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns selected Delpit (ankle) in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 44th overall.

Cleveland moved around a bit in the second round and still wound up with one of the top safeties in the class. Delpit entered the year as a likely first-round pick but was shaky at times in 2019 for LSU, which dropped his stock. He was also unable to test at the combine due to a high-ankle sprain, but the tape shows Delpit is an explosive athlete when healthy. Delpit could end up being one of the steals of the draft if he taps into his potential.
