BROWNS Report Cleveland Browns to sign free agent CB T.J. Carrie The former Raiders cornerback started 15 games in 2017

New Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey continued the overhaul of his roster on Wednesday, agreeing to terms with free agent cornerback T.J. Carrie just prior to the start of the NFL's new league year on Wednesday. He was back in a nickel role in 2016, but Carrie once again elevated himself into a starting spot in 2017, as he started 15 of 16 games.

Carrie had his best season as a professional in 2017 despite Oakland's secondary struggling overall as a unit. In that time, Carrie started in 36 of the 60 games he played in, including 15 contests a season ago.

In his rookie season, Carrie earned 13 appearances and four starts, chipping in with 44 tackles, eight pass deflections, one forced fumble, two recoveries and the first interception of his career.

A head coaching shakeup with Jon Gruden replacing Jack Del Rio suggested the Raiders were likely to make sweeping personnel changes on both sides of the ball on the heels of a 6-10 season.

With Carrie gone, the Raiders may be expecting Conley to step up into a starting role across from Amerson during his second season, while draft and free-agency options are on the table as well. Carrie may not be a splashy player, but he is solid, which is certainly something the Browns-who ranked 19th in passing yards allowed and 31st in interceptions, with seven-need.
