According to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, Pro Bowl safety Tashaun Gipson would like to remain with the Browns, but no substantial talks have taken place and he’s preparing to move on.
Gipson had five interceptions in his second season for the Browns. The following year, he topped that with six for second in the NFL despite missing the final five games of the season with a a knee injury. He was voted to the Pro Bowl that season.
Signed as an undrafted rookie out of Wyoming in 2012, Gipson played out his second-round tender in 2015 at $2.356 million, and the Browns didn’t try to extend him as the season wore on. The Browns have solid players in their secondary, and can likely get by without Gipson, but it will be a big loss.
