Browns restricted free agent FS Tashaun Gipson is skipping the beginning of the offseason program.
Unsigned players sometimes sign waivers that allow them to attend, but Gipson has zero reason to show up for the "voluntary" sessions. Teams have until Friday to sign Gipson to an offer sheet. Still only 25 (in August), Gipson has intercepted 11 passes in 27 games over the past two seasons. Apr 20 - 1:35 PM

Teams have until Friday to sign Browns restricted free agent FS Tashaun Gipson to an offer sheet.

It's a bit surprising Gipson hasn't attracted any attention even though the Browns only placed a second-round tender on him. A rising stud, he's a candidate to break the bank if and when he hits the open market. If no one makes Gipson an offer before Friday, the Browns will have a steal at $2.356 million in 2015. For now, he's staying away from workouts as he's technically unsigned.

The Browns are expected to explore a long-term deal with restricted free agent FS Tashaun Gipson.

Gipson currently has a second-round tender from the Browns, but is a candidate for an extension coming off his breakout 2014. Prior to missing the final five games with a knee injury, Gipson established himself as a playmaker in Cleveland's secondary. Gipson was a top-10 safety in PFF's year-end ratings and finished behind only Glover Quin with six interceptions.
Mar 21 - 7:14 PM

Browns tendered qualifying offers to restricted free agents FS Tashaun Gipson, DB Johnson Bademosi, DL Ishmaa’ily Kitchen and LB Craig Robertson.

Gipson is the lone interesting name here as an emerging playmaker who has 11 interceptions and 19 pass breakups over his last 26 games. The Browns should be looking to do a long-term deal before he hits unrestricted free agency a year from now -- or before another team shows interest in an RFA offer shortly. Gipson was a top-10 safety in PFF's grades last year.
Mar 9 - 3:41 PM

Browns placed S Tashaun Gipson on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

Gipson had expressed optimism he would be able to play again this season after spraining his MCL Week 12 against the Falcons, but the Browns have little reason to rush back their emerging star safety. A restricted free agent following the season, Gipson still leagues the league with six interceptions despite missing the last three games. Cleveland will likely look to lock Gipson up to a long-term deal this spring. The Browns signed OLB Scott Solomon off their practice squad in a corresponding roster move.

Browns FS Tashaun Gipson (knee) expects to return this season.

Gipson is two weeks removed from a torn MCL. He was expected to miss 6-8 games, but says he's hoping to return in Week 16. That would likely be a best-case scenario, and Gipson remains far from a lock to play again this year. Jim Leonhard will continue to start against the Bengals.
Tue, Dec 9, 2014 11:35:00 AM's Ian Rapoport reports Browns FS Tashaun Gipson has been diagnosed with a torn MCL, and is done for the regular season.

Specifically, he'll be sidelined 6-8 weeks. Per Rapsheet, Gipson has avoided ACL damage, however, and could return for the postseason if the Browns elect to hold him off injured reserve. It's a huge blow for 7-4 Cleveland, as Gipson's six interceptions lead the league. Gipson has graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 3 safety. Jim Leonhard and Jordan Poyer are the next men up on the depth chart.

Browns FS Tashaun Gipson was forced from Cleveland's Week 12 game against the Falcons with a right knee injury, and will not return.

Gipson collided with Joe Haden in mid-air, and immediately went down clutching his right knee. He tried to hobble off the field before collapsing. The cart was brought out, and Gipson was visibly distraught as he headed to the locker room. It's quite possibly a season-ending knee injury for a player who entered Week 12 leading the league in interceptions. The Browns' defense keeps taking body blows.

Browns FS Tashaun Gipson (concussion) has been upgraded to probable after completing the league's concussion protocol.

Gipson was always optimistic he would be able to play. With four interceptions over his last four games, Gipson will attempt to pick off first-time starter Ryan Mallett on Sunday.

Browns FS Tashaun Gipson (concussion) is listed as questionable for Week 11 against the Texans after getting in a limited practice on Friday.

Gipson is still in the concussion protocol, and would need to pass through several steps before being allowed to play against Houston. Gipson sounded optimistic, but he said his playing status is in the "doctors' and trainers' hands." Gipson has four interceptions over his last four games, and would be a great bet to keep his turnover streak alive against first-time starter Ryan Mallett on Sunday.

Browns FS Tashaun Gipson is in the concussion protocol.

Gipson suffered a concussion late in the Browns' win over the Bengals. He didn't practice Wednesday and should be considered questionable for Week 11. Jim Leonhard would likely start if Gipson misses time.
Wed, Nov 12, 2014 01:18:00 PM

Browns FS Tashaun Gipson sprained his left knee during practice Friday.

Coach Mike Pettine called the injury minor, and said Gipson could return by midweek. A 2012 UDFA out of Wyoming, Gipson recorded 95 tackles and five interceptions over 15 starts last season. Jordan Poyer filled in for Gipson during practice Friday, but newly-signed Jim Leonhard would likely handle the free safety duties if Gipson is forced to miss any regular season games.

Browns FS Tashaun Gipson missed 17 tackles in 2013.

Gipson managed an impressive 95 total tackles in his second season, but missing on over 15 percent of his tackle opportunities is a liability for the Browns secondary. Gipson is tentatively the starter at safety along with newly-signed Donte Whitner.
Fri, Apr 11, 2014 10:01:00 AM

Tashaun Gipson has been named the Browns starting free safety.

Gipson beat out Johnson Bademosi and Jamoris Slaughter to win the right to line up next to hard-hitting strong safety T.J. Ward. Gipson appeared in 10 games last year, recording one interception and 23 tackles. He graded out as ProFootballFocus' No. 42 safety among 88 qualifiers.
Wed, Aug 21, 2013 11:10:00 AM

The Browns listed Tashaun Gipson as the starting free safety on their first unofficial depth chart.

Gipson, a second-year UDFA, entered training camp as the favorite to start, and he's done nothing to lose it. The Browns have been impressed with fellow second-year safety Johnson Bademosi, and he's going to get a shot to overtake Gipson. We'll get a better feel once preseason games start.
