Cleveland Browns Sign Former Colts Safety After Career-Best Season

The Cleveland Browns have reportedly signed veteran free-agent safety Rodney McLeod to an undisclosed deal, according to multiple sources.

The 32-year-old McLeod spent the 2022 NFL season with the Indianapolis Colts, where he played a key role in their defense, achieving career-highs in tackles and pass breakups.

With his versatility, McLeod is expected to provide valuable support as a backup option for the Browns' starting safeties, Grant Delpit and Juan Thornhill.

Throughout his 11-year NFL career with the Los Angeles Rams, Philadelphia Eagles, and Colts, McLeod has played in 156 games, amassing 688 total tackles, 18 interceptions, 12 forced fumbles, nine fumble recoveries, 60 pass defended, two sacks, and three touchdowns.

His experience and ability to play both strong and free safety positions should make him a valuable addition to the Browns' secondary.

Additionally, McLeod has worked with Browns defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz during their time together in Philadelphia. The Browns will look to leverage McLeod's experience and production to bolster their defense and continue their push towards playoff success. Photo Credit: Robert Scheer/IndyStar / USA TODAY NETWORK
