Report: Browns Likely to Move on From Defensive End Olivier Vernon

The Browns will “probably” move on from defensive end Olivier Vernon this offseason according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer.

Vernon is owed a non-guaranteed $15.5 million in the final year of a deal he originally signed with the New York Giants in 2016.

After an injury-shortened 2019 which saw him put up only 3.5 sacks in 10 games, the 29-year-old Vernon would likely need a pay cut to return with the Browns — something he seems unlikely to accept. Cleveland may look to free agency — they’ve been linked to Everson Griffen — to replace Vernon as Myles Garrett’s bookend.
