Biography

Career Transactions: Originally drafted by Cleveland in the third round (71st overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft, the first of the Browns’ two third-round selections.

At a Glance:

In 2017, posted career highs in tackles (138), sacks (3.5), passes defensed (five) and forced fumbles (two).

One of three NFL players to play every defensive snap during 2017 season.

Registered second-most tackles (281) in the NFL since 2016 per press box totals.

Former NFL LB Mike Jones was his high school football coach at Hazelwood East High School in St. Louis, Mo.

Signed a four-year contract extension during the 2017 offseason.

Due to a glitch in Madden 15, he measured 1-foot-2 in the game. He used that notoriety, which included interviews on ESPN and CNN, to spread his mother’s words of wisdom that no matter how small you are, always dream big and live big.

Musically gifted, has played the drums since the age of seven and sang in church choir, where his late father, Elmer, was the pastor.
