Peppers recorded six tackles and a fumble recovery during Sunday's 21-21 tie with the Steelers. He also logged 15 yards on one punt return and 24 yards on a kick return.

EDGE Analysis

Peppers was heavily involved on both defense and special teams and seemed more comfortable than he was as a rookie, when the 2017 first-rounder averaged less than 3.5 tackles per game. Look for him to continue in the starting lineup going forward in addition to seeing reps as a return man.

Peppers will start the season as the Browns' primary kick returner, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Peppers could also see some action on punt returns, but receiver Antonio Callaway is currently the first option. The 2017 first-round pick is set to start at strong safety for the Browns this season, and has shown no residual issues through the preseason from the groin injury that landed him on the Physically Unable to Perform list back in July.

Peppers will open training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list with a groin injury, Nate Ulrich of The Akron Beacon Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

The fallout does not bode well for Peppers' chances of winning the starting safety spot. As it currently stands, Peppers appears to be battling Derrick Kindred for a starting gig. How much time Peppers misses could wind up making the difference in the position battle.

Peppers is expected to be in a position battle with Derrick Kindred for the starting strong safety spot, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Peppers shared first-team reps with Kindred during the spring, and the starting job appears to be up for grabs as the team heads into training camp this week. Peppers was moved from free to strong safety this offseason in an effort to help the former Michigan standout bounce back from a poor rookie campaign, but it's clear that, as of now right now, a starting spot on the field is far from guaranteed for him.

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.

EDGE Analysis

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.
