DE - FA
Cleveland Browns DE Adrian Clayborn has been released by the organization.
Clayborn managed 12 tackles, 3.5 sacks, a forced fumble, and a pass deflection across 15 games for the Browns in 2020. The veteran defensive end will hit free agency and look to join a team in need of depth at one of the most expensive positions in football.
Cleveland Browns DL Adrian Clayborn is not practicing Thursday, he's dealing with a hip injury.
Clayborn injured the hip in last week's game against the Bengals and was working out on the side Thursday. If he can't go, the Browns defensive line will be short-handed this week against Washington as they're already without Olivier Vernon.
Cleveland DE Adrian Clayborn is having tests done today on the hip that he injured in Thursday night's game against Cincinnati.
Right now the Browns are monitoring the situation closely. Clayborn has been productive so far this season, posting 4 tackles and 2 sacks in Cleveland's first two games. Losing him would certainly be a blow to the Browns D/ST.
Adrian Clayborn is signing a two-year, $6 million contract with the Browns. The deal is worth up to $7 million in incentives.
Clayborn totaled 18 tackles, four sacks and two forced fumbles across 15 games for the Falcons in 2019. The 31-year-old racked up 13.5 sacks in two seasons as a Falcon from 2017-2019. Clayborn will provide the Browns depth at the defensive line and is considered a flyer at best in deep-league IDP formats.
Adrian Clayborn has been removed from the final injury report and looks like a full go in Week 15 versus Tampa Bay on Monday night.
Tampa Bay offers in the top half in points allowed to Clayborn. It's an appealing matchup for his IDP owners.
