Lions signed DB Johnson Bademosi, formerly of the Browns, to a two-year, $4.5 million contract.

The deal is worth a maximum of $6 million. Bademosi has not fared well in his defensive playing time to this point, but he is an excellent special teamer and has experience at both corner and safety. He also won't turn 26 years old until the late summer.

Browns re-signed restricted free agent S Johnson Bademosi to a one-year, $1.542 million contract.

Bademosi played one defensive snap last season, as he's merely a special teams player where he racked up 12 combined tackles running down kicks.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer says there's reason to believe Johnson Bademosi will win the Browns' free safety job.

Signed as an undrafted free agent last year, Bademosi led the Browns in special teams tackles with 18. He played cornerback in college, but showed impressive physicality and ability to tackle on kick coverage last season. The second-year pro will battle Tashaun Gipson in training camp for the starting job.

ESPN Cleveland expects Johnson Bademosi to win the Browns' starting free safety job.

Bademosi will enter training camp behind Tashaun Gipson, but has breakout potential in Ray Horton's 3-4 defense. Sixth-round pick Jamoris Slaughter is coming off a torn Achilles' and will likely be limited to special teams.

ESPN Cleveland reports the Browns are "intrigued" by DB Johnson Bademosi and expect him to challenge Tashaun Gipson for the starting free safety job.

The Browns don't have any proven free safeties, so Bademosi is competing with Gipson to be the Week 1 starter. Sixth-round pick Jamoris Slaughter is coming off a torn Achilles' and lacks free-safety range. Bademosi struggled to get on the field as a cornerback last year, but showed very well on special teams.

The Browns are giving second-year DB Johnson Bademosi a look at safety.

Bademosi made the Browns as an undrafted free agent out of Stanford last season, and he played 24 snaps on defense. Many thought he lacked the cover skills to survive on the outside, and the Browns have a hole at free safety. Bademosi ran a 4.39 forty and posted a 40" vertical at the Cardinal's Pro Day.
