Oct 30 - 2:25 PM

Browns FS Tashaun Gipson (ankle) has resumed practicing.

The Browns are expected to get Gipson and Joe Haden (concussion) back this week, giving their secondary a much-needed boost against Carson Palmer's Cardinals. Gipson was one of the top free safeties in football last year.
Oct 28 - 8:14 PM

Browns FS Tashaun Gipson (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Week 7 against the Rams.

This will mark Gipson's third straight absence. Jordan Poyer has been filling in for him at free safety. It's unclear if Gipson will be ready to suit up next week against the Cardinals.
Oct 23 - 1:27 PM

Browns coach Mike Pettine said FS Tashaun Gipson (ankle) is "real close" to returning.

Gipson has not practiced since Week 4, so it is difficult to believe he is nearing a return. Gipson would need to practice on Thursday and Friday to have a real shot at playing this week. Jordan Poyer has been filling in at free safety with Gipson sidelined.

Browns FS Tashaun Gipson (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 6.

One of the best free safeties in the league last season, Gipson's contract year has gotten off to a painfully slow start. The Browns will also be without top CB Joe Haden (concussion) in Sunday's meeting with Peyton Manning.
Oct 16 - 2:11 PM

Browns FS Tashaun Gipson (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 5.

Gipson hasn’t practiced since going down in the second half last week. Outside of a Week 1 interception, it’s been a disappointing start to his contract year. Gipson's missed five tackles and ranks in the bottom-third of PFF’s safeties. Jordan Poyer will replace Gipson opposite Donte Whitner.
Oct 10 - 2:28 PM

Browns FS Tashaun Gipson (groin) did not practice on Wednesday.

Gipson suffered the injury during the Week 3 loss to the Raiders, but he was able to finish the game. He should be able to play this week. Gipson has no interceptions yet this season after picking off six in 11 games last year.
Oct 1 - 9:52 AM

Browns FS Tashaun Gipson said he's "perfectly fine" playing out this season on his one-year, $2.356 restricted free agent tender.

Gipson sees the light of the tunnel in the form of unrestricted free agency next March. If he plays like he did last season -- when opposing quarterbacks had a passer rating of just 41.9 throwing into his coverage and he recorded six picks in 11 games -- Gipson will command at least $6-7 million annually.
Jun 22 - 12:36 PM

ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi expects the Browns and FS Tashaun Gipson to work out a long-term deal.

Grossi could be hoping more than reporting here. Gipson is a rising star the Browns should be fighting to extend, but there have been zero signs Cleveland is interested in signing him to a long-term deal. At this point, Gipson may be more interested in testing 2016 free agency. Gipson will earn $2.356 million in 2015 after reluctantly signing his second-round tender.
Jun 13 - 10:22 AM

Browns re-signed restricted free agent FS Tashaun Gipson to a one-year, $2.356 million contract.

Gipson skipped voluntary workouts over his second-round tender, but would have risked losing $1.73M if he didn't sign by Monday's deadline. The Browns aren't expected to extend Gipson, leaving him no choice but to play out 2015 at the relatively modest price tag. Gipson will be a hot commodity if allowed to hit free agency next offseason. Not yet 25 years old, Gipson has 11 interceptions -- including two pick-sixes -- over the past two seasons and has developed into an elite coverage safety.
Jun 12 - 6:36 PM

Browns FS Tashaun Gipson will not report to this week's voluntary OTAs, as expected.

Gipson still hasn't signed his $2.356 million restricted free agent tender. He's hoping the Browns cave and give him a long-term extension, but they've made it clear that's not happening. Expect Gipson to sign the tender by the June 15 deadline, play out this season and hit free agency in 2016. Gipson was a top-10 safety in PFF's 2014 ratings.
May 26 - 8:53 AM

ESPN Cleveland believes Browns FS Tashaun Gipson may be intent on entering the free agent market in 2016.

Gipson has been skipping voluntary minicamp. The Browns reportedly have concerns about his 2014 MCL injury and aren’t expected to extend him. Gipson has until June 15 to sign his second-round tender or he'll risk losing $1.73 million.
May 23 - 9:12 PM

Browns FS Tashaun Gipson has until June 15 to sign his restricted free agent tender.

Gipson is holding out of minicamp in an attempt to get a long-term deal. He’s yet to decide if he’ll sign his second-round tender ($2.356 million), but Cleveland holds all the leverage in contract talks. The Browns can reduce Gipson’s offer to $627,000 if he doesn’t sign by the June 15 deadline.
