Selected in the first round, Peppers had high expectations to fulfill. The rookie out of Michigan signed a four-year, $10.3-million contract with the Cleveland Browns. The deal included a $5.6 million signing bonus and a fifth-year option. Peppers finished his 2017 season with 58 total tackles and one interception. The trouble he had during his rookie campaign most likely correlates with the fact that he was playing out of position for most of the year. As we move into next year, the Browns will most likely address this position by adding a true free safety so Peppers can play where he belongs and that’s near the line of scrimmage.
