AFC Notes: Browns, Ravens, Steelers


Browns S Andrew Sendejo said he is mentoring second-round S Grant Delpit this offseason. 

“We’re excited about what he can do,” said Sendejo, via Nate Ulrich.

Sendejo mentioned that he’s leading the Browns’ defensive backs and teaching them “how to approach the game.” 

“It’s my job to show the young guys how to approach the game, share my knowledge. I’m trying to be the best teammate, best leader I can be,” said Sendejo, via Scott Petrak.

  • Jay Glazer of the Athletic says the Browns offered Jadeveon Clowney “a lot of money, huge guarantee, high average per season, he turned it down.”
  • A GM who spoke with Glazer said of Clowney: “I don’t know what he’s doing. I don’t know.”


  • Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated writes that Ravens’ second-round RB J.K. Dobbins has already made an impression in training camp and “looks shifty.”
  • Breer believes it would “be an upset” if Dobbins does not have an offensive role in 2020. 
  • Regarding the Ravens dismissing Earl Thomas from practice, Breer calls the situation “Earl being Earl,” and that they have the flexibility at his position to move on from him if needed. 
  • Breer could see the Ravens using DB Jimmy Smith as a hybrid type player should they move on from Thomas. 


Steelers QB Mason Rudolph said he’s still confident that he can become a starting quarterback. 

“I am confident that I will be a starting quarterback in the NFL. Right now my job is to prepare and push Ben and help our guys anyway I can,” said Rudolph, via Brooke Pryor.

Rudolph does not think he properly ran the Steelers’ offense last season when filling in for Ben Roethlisberger. 

“When I looked back last year, I think I didn’t run our offense at the level that meets the Pittsburgh Steelers standard,” said Roethlisberger, per Pryor.

  • Rudolph mentioned that his recovery from a collarbone injury went “pretty smooth” and indicated that he suffered a dislocation instead of a broken bone, which would have prolonged his recovery process. (Pryor)
