NFL free agency is picking back up, and the Browns are jumping in on the action, adding a veteran to the room that it desperately needed in versatile veteran safety in Rodney McLeod. McLeod is reunited with Jim Schwartz who he played under when the two were with the Philadelphia Eagles.

McLeod is as versatile as they come playing 527 snaps in the box, 290 snaps as a deep free safety, and 174 snaps in the slot with an 85.3 coverage grade from PFF.
