CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns are expected to waive safety Derrick Kindred, a source told NFL Insider Ian Rapoport.
The #Browns are expected to waive safety Derrick Kindred today, source said. He was slated to be a starter. Cleveland had shopped Kindred, who was due more than $2M in salary. He should generate considerable interest on waivers.
Kindred was slated to be a starter this season and was scheduled to make $2.025 million this year in the final season of his rookie contract. Last season he played all 16 games, registering 38 tackles, one interception and one forced fumble, according to the Browns.
The Browns selected Kindred in the fourth round (129th overall) in the 2016 NFL draft. In 2018, he was just one of six safeties to force a fumble and intercept a pass in the same contest.
