The Browns have made a splash in free agency by signing safety Juan Thornhill. This is a big move that improves an already better defense with the signing of OLB Obo Okoronkwo
Via ESPN: Thornhill, 27, had three interceptions, one sack and a career-best 71 tackles last season. He was in on five tackles, including one for a loss, and had a pass defended in the Chiefs’ Super Bowl LVII win over the Philadelphia Eagles.
This improves the defense and is a very reasonable contract at three years and 21 million total.
Thornhill has played four years total all with the Kansas City Chiefs and a total of 65 games. He has eight interceptions in his tenure thus far. Additionally, Thornhill is a two-time Super Bowl champion!
This is a great move for the Browns who just released safety John Johnson from the roster. An addition like Thornhill is a crucial piece to a team that just lost a solid player such as Johnson to free agency.
Welcome to the Browns, Juan Thornhill.
