Former Indianapolis Colts safety Rodney McLeod is signing with the Cleveland Browns, per multiple reports.
McLeod stepped up for the Colts in a big way during the 2022 season. He played the third-most snaps of all defenders on that side of the ball and proved to be a true leader in a young secondary.
McLeod was dubbed one of the unsung heroes of the Colts’ roster during a tumultuous campaign in what may have been the best season of his career.
The Browns have agreed to terms with veteran S Rodney McLeod.

According to Pro Football Focus, McLeod as the second-highest graded safety from Week 8 on. In 17 games (15 starts), McLeod recorded 96 tackles (59 solo), eight tackles for loss, eight passes defended and two interceptions.
The Colts will be rolling with a young safety room, but they learned plenty by watching McLeod each week during the 2022 season.
