“The worst player to lose was, without a doubt, safety Tashaun Gipson. After being undrafted in 2012, the Browns signed Gipson, who quickly bloomed into an excellent playmaker. In the 2013 and 2014 seasons, Gipson had 91 solo tackles and 11 interceptions, returned for a total of 301 yards and two TDs. Gipson has earned acclaim throughout the league, winning AFC reception leader in both 2013 and 2014, despite missing the last five games of the 2014 season due to injury. Currently, successful teams in the NFL are built with a careful eye towards the defensive side of the ball. The best example of this is the two teams that just played in the Super Bowl, Carolina and Denver. While Carolina certainly got things done on both sides of the ball in the regular season, Denver made it to the playoffs and won the Super Bowl, despite having a very poor season from Peyton Manning. While the Browns have plainly decided to start fresh, letting Gipson go definitely sets the defense back, and could have made a big difference in the turnaround time for the Browns.”

“The worst player the team lost was Mitchell Schwartz. At just 26 years old, Schwartz was picked unanimously as the NFL’s best right tackle. Out of all the tackles (both left and right), he was ranked 8th in the NFL. He also wanted to stay in Cleveland. Between his age and his overall talent level, it didn’t make sense that the Browns would pull his offer and let him walk. Not to mention he was one of the only tackles in the NFL to shut down super bowl MVP Von Miller.”
