Browns' Gavin Escobar: Inks futures deal with Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns signed Escobar to a reserve/future contract Monday.

A 2013 second-round pick, Escobar is a veteran of 64 career games in his five NFL seasons, though he only made two appearances in 2017, both of which came with Baltimore. The 26-year-old was lauded for his pass-catching skills coming out of college, but his lack of speed and unrefined blocking have limited his on-field opportunities up to this point in his career. He'll do well to win a roster spot with Cleveland as a depth tight end coming out of training camp in 2018.

Browns' Jabrill Peppers: Earns first interception in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peppers, who finished with four tackles and an interception during Cleveland's Week 17 loss to the Steelers, accumulated 57 tackles and one interception during his rookie year.

Peppers finished the season strong, earning his first interception of his career in Week 17. However, he had a rough rookie season as a whole. Pro Football Focus gave him a 45.5 grade, which placed him 77th among qualified safeties. The 2017 first-round pick will have to improve his play if he wants to live up to his hype coming out of college, though it's far too early to give up on him.

Browns' Jason McCourty: Three interceptions in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCourty, who racked up seven tackles in Cleveland's Week 17 loss to the Steelers, ends the season with 65 tackles, three interceptions and two forced fumbles.

The Browns signed McCourty to a two-year, $6 million contract this past offseason, and the veteran cornerback was a pleasant surprise, as he Cleveland's most reliable pass defender. McCourty will be 31 years old when 2018 kicks off and is expected to be the team's No. 1 cornerback again.
