Safety Damarious Randall’s departure from the Browns was only a matter of time.
That time came early Friday morning when he agreed to a one-year deal with the Las Vegas Raiders.
ESPN’s Josina Anderson was first to report the news after a text from Randall. The deal is reportedly worth up to $3.25 million with incentives.
Randall, 27, spent the last two seasons with the Browns after being acquired in a trade from the Packers for quarterback DeShone Kizer. Randall started all 26 games he played with the Browns, totaling four interceptions, 15 passes defensed, 2.5 sacks, a forced fumble and 146 tackles.
Randall was solid in 2018 but fell out of favor last season and was suspended for a game by then-coach Freddie Kitchens. New general manager Andrew Berry didn’t intend to re-sign him and let him hit the free agent market.
Randall was the No. 30 pick of the Packers in 2015. He played cornerback with them but moved back to his more comfortable free safety spot with the Browns.
