Ex-Viking Richardson to sign with Browns

Ex-Viking Richardson to sign with Browns”

Browns general manager John Dorsey has built a fearsome front on defence.

The Browns finished 12th in defensive DVOA previous year and are making additions to their defensive line that should position them to be even better next season.

Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson is expected to sign a three-year contract with the Browns when free agency begins, ESPN reports Tuesday morning. Per Pro Football Focus, Richardson ranked as the league's 47th interior defender last season.

He's done it, and Richardson's addition will give Dorsey more flexibility heading into next month's draft.

It's possible Dorsey will use the selection - Cleveland now has 10 picks in 2019 - to get another playmaker for quarterback Baker Mayfield. Richardson and former New York Giants linebacker Olivier Vernon will add much needed pass rush to go along with Myles Garrett.

Richardson will help the Browns get to the quarterback and plug the middle.

Perriman, who was cut by Baltimore and Washington before signing with the Browns last season on October 13, caught 16 passes for 340 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games - two of them starts.

Davis has appeared in 33 career games with 12 starts where he has recorded 31 tackles and half of a sack.

With Richardson leaving, Minnesota must now figure out who their other starting defensive tackle next to Linval Joseph will be in 2019.

While talented, he has also run into some trouble.

He was suspended for the first four games in 2015 season for violating the substance-abuse policy for testing positive for marijuana.
