The Cleveland Browns made a notable move to strengthen their defensive backfield on Thursday, signing former Philadelphia Eagles safety Rodney McLeod, according to multiple reports.
McLeod spent six seasons with the Eagles organization and helped play a big role in the team’s Super Bowl Championship in 2018. While McLeod is more known for his time in Philadelphia, he played in all 17 games for the Indianapolis Colts in 2022. The veteran safety set a career-high in tackles, tackles for loss and passes defended while recording his best-ever Pro Football Focus grade (80.1) — good enough for 11th at his position.
As many have already noted, McLeod reunites in Cleveland with defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz, who served in that same capacity in Philadelphia from 2016-2020.
