Johnson Bademosi DB DET 2 months ago

The Lions and Bademosi agreed to a two-year contract Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Bademosi has made his bones in the NFL as a special-teams ace, culminating in a career-high 27 tackles and one fumble recovery last season. With the move from Cleveland to Detroit, the opportunity may exist for Bademosi to play a role in a rejiggered secondary, but containment on kick and punt returns will again be on the docket.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer says there's reason to believe Browns' free safety Johnson Bademosi will to win the starting job.

Bademosi was signed as an undrafted free agent last year, and led the Browns in special teams tackles with 18. He played cornerback in college, but showed impressive physicality and ability to tackle on special teams last season. The second-year pro will battle Tashaun Gipson in training camp for the starting job.

ESPN Cleveland expects Johnson Bademosi to win the Browns' starting free safety job.

Bademosi will enter training camp behind Tashaun Gipson, but has breakout potential in Ray Horton's 3-4 defense. Sixth-round pick Jamoris Slaughter is coming off a torn Achilles' and will likely be limited to special teams.

ESPN Cleveland reports that the Browns are "intrigued" by DB Johnson Bademosi and expect him to challenge Tashaun Gipson for the starting free safety job.

The Browns don't have any proven options at free safety, so Bademosi is competing with Gibson and Buster Skrine to be the Week 1 starter. Sixth-round pick Jamoris Slaughter (Achilles') will also be "added to the mix" once healthy. Bademosi struggled to get on the field as a cornerback last year, but should be a strong candidate for more playing time at safety this season.

The Browns are giving second-year DB Johnson Bademosi a look at safety.

Bademosi made the Browns as an undrafted free agent out of Stanford last season, and he played 24 snaps on defense. Many thought he lacked the cover skills to survive on the outside, and the Browns have a hole at free safety. Bademosi ran a 4.39 forty and posted a 40" vertical at the Cardinal's Pro Day.
