When the Giants traded for Jabrill Peppers this offseason Ozzie Newsome Jersey , the general reaction was that they were making a move to replace Landon Collins at safety in their secondary.Peppers wasn’t just a defensive player in college or with Cleveland, however. He played both ways and returned kicks at Michigan and kept up the special teams work with the Browns.Peppers started every game for the Browns on defense while serving as their primary kickoff and punt returner, but played just under 65 percent of the defensive snaps. The Giants kept their starting safeties on the field pretty much every snap when healthy and special teams coach Thomas McGaughey said he has “no reservation” about keeping Peppers as a returner even if he’s playing more on defense.“The guy is a for-sure ball-handler Briean Boddy-Calhoun Jersey ,” said McGaughey, via NJ.com. “Can make all the cuts full speed. He just brings juice.”Peppers may get a break on some or most kickoffs as Corey Coleman averaged 26 yards per return for the Giants last year, but it sounds like he’ll be continuing to be a factor as a returner in his first year with the Giants. The Browns expect to know in a couple of weeks how many games newly signed running back Kareem Hunt will serve in 2019. Hunt remains on the Commissioner Exempt list Joe Schobert Color Rush Jersey , where he landed Nov. 30 after video surfaced of him kicking and shoving a woman.The length of Hunt’s punishment for this year could play a big part in how long Duke Johnson remains with the team.Reporters asked Browns General Manager John Dorsey on Monday about Johnson’s future.“I don’t think it makes him expendable yet,” Dorsey said, via Pat McManamom of ESPN. “What you have to do is you have to go back and research your options and see moving forward what’s best for the organization.”Johnson’s $1.8 million base salary for 2019 becomes fully guaranteed March 17 https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Ricardo-Louis-Jersey , Adam Caplan reports.As it is, Johnson’s role with the team has diminished since his first season. He averaged 10.3 touches as a rookie in 2015. He averaged only 5.4 in 2018 despite averaging 5.0 yards per carry and 9.1 yards per catch.Johnson now has Nick Chubb in front of him, and at some point next season David Njoku Jersey , Hunt will return. So where does that leave Johnson?Probably elsewhere.
