Donte Whitner agrees to 4-year, $28 million deal with the Browns. 

The Browns have officially moved on from potential franchise defender T.J. Ward as Whitner slides into Ward's strong safety role. Something tells me that Ward was no longer interested in coming back to Cleveland when he heard Denver was interesting in his services. Whitner is a still a young (28) above-average safety. ANALYST: Steve Perrotta Whitner will join Joe Haden in the Browns' backfield, and rumors are swirling that the Browns could be in on the Darelle Revis sweepstakes as well. Looks like the Browns are intending to field the best defensive backfield the game has ever seen. ANALYST: Ray Flowers
