Top Greg Newsome II News

  • Browns' Greg Newsome: Option exercised

    The Browns exercised Newsome's 2025 fifth-year option, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    The 26th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, Newsome had a breakout season under defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz in 2023. He started 13 of the 14 games he appeared in, picking off the first two passes of his career while breaking up 14 passes. Newsome also registered a career-best 49 tackles (34 solo) and returned one of his interceptions for a touchdown.

  • Browns' Greg Newsome: Eligible for extension

    Newsome is entering his fourth year and is extension-eligible, Zac Jackson of The Athletic reports. He finished 2023 with 49 tackles, 14 passes defensed, two interceptions, one touchdown and 0.5 sacks over 14 games.

    Newsome made some big plays for the Browns in 2023, including a pick-six in a Week 10 win over the Ravens, but there were also a few disappointing games -- most notably, the 45-14 playoff loss to Houston. He allowed four catches on five targets and was unable to track down tight end Dalton Schultz on a 37-yard touchdown in that contest. Pro Football Focus rated him 18th of 20 defenders in the game. As the third member in what is considered the strongest part of the Browns' defense, Newsome should play a key role as a slot cornerback regardless of whether the team picks up his fifth-year option.

  • Browns' Greg Newsome: Cleared on injury report

    Newsome (knee) no longer has an injury designation for Saturday's game against the Texans, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Newsome went through the natural progression of DNP to limited and finally a full practice this week, paving the way for him to suit up for Saturday's wild-card matchup. The presence of the third-year pro in the Browns' secondary should be good news for Cleveland in the matchup against the Texans on Saturday.

  • Browns' Greg Newsome: Practices Wednesday

    Newsome (knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday after missing Tuesday's session.

    It's a step in the right direction for the starting cornerback ahead of Saturday's wild card matchup with the Texans. The 2021 first-round pick posted career highs in 2023 with 49 tackles, 14 passes defensed and two interceptions.

  • Browns' Greg Newsome: Unavailable Thursday

    Newsome (knee) did not participate at the Browns' practice Thursday.

    Newsome has now missed the first two practice sessions of the week due to a knee issue. It's unclear when he sustained the injury, but if he can't go in Sunday's regular-season finale, Cameron Mitchell and Martin Emerson would likely see an increase in workload versus Cincinnati.

  • Browns' Greg Newsome: Won't play at Cincinnati

    Newsome (knee) is out for Sunday's game at Cincinnati, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    The exact nature of Newsome's knee injury is unknown at this point, but the Browns could just be playing things safe with a wild-card spot already guaranteed. Without Newsome, Cleveland will likely lean more heavily on rookie fifth-rounder Cameron Mitchell at corner in Week 18.

  • Browns' Greg Newsome: Snags key INT in win

    Newsome registered five solo tackles and an interception in Sunday's 31-27 win over the Jaguars.

    Newsome picked off Trevor Lawrence on the second play of the fourth quarter, which the Browns' offense took advantage of four plays later with a 41-yard touchdown pass from Joe Flacco to David Bell. It was Newsome's second interception of the year and he's two tackles away from matching his career-high of 42 in 2022.

  • Browns' Greg Newsome: Ready for Sunday

    Newsome was a full participant in Friday's practice.

    Newsome had been dealing with a shin injury, but it seems as if the third-year corner has moved past that issue. Without Denzel Ward (shoulder) in Week 13, Newsome projects to be Cleveland's top cornerback against a Rams offense that's averaging just under 242 passing yards per game.

  • Browns' Greg Newsome: Records season-high seven tackles

    Newsome recorded seven tackles (five solo) in Sunday's Week 12 loss to the Broncos.

    He added one pass breakup. The seven tackles were a new season-best for the 2021 first-rounder. Newsome has battled elbow, hamstring and groin injuries this season but has appeared in nine of 11 contests, recording 32 tackles (21 solo), five pass breakups, one interception that he returned for a touchdown and 0.5 sacks.
