  • Browns' Martin Emerson: Finishes strong rookie year

    Emerson had four tackles and two passes defensed in a 28-14 loss to Pittsburgh in Week 18. The Browns drafted a good one when they selected Emerson in the third round of the 2022 draft. The rookie appeared in all 17 games, tied for the lead among team cornerbacks with 15 passes defensed and graded out as the best in coverage, per Pro Football Focus. He'll resume his role in the rotation next season.

  • Browns' Martin Emerson: Will start Sunday

    Emerson will draw a start at cornerback against the Bills, Zac Jackson of The Athletic reports. Emerson gets the nod with Greg Newsome (concussion) inactive. The former has had a steady role this season, recording 38 tackles, a sack and seven passes defensed in nine games. He'll work to help contain the dangerous Buffalo offense Sunday.

  • Browns' Martin Emerson: Second-leading tackler Monday

    Emerson collected nine tackles (six solo) and two passes defended in Monday's 32-13 win against the Browns. The 22-year-old logged a season high in tackles as starting cornerback Denzel Ward (concussion) missed his third-straight game Monday. Emerson also finished with a team-high two passes defended in this contest. The rookie third-round pick has totaled 19 tackles (16 solo), one sack and four passes defended while playing nearly every defensive snap since Week 6; though, should Ward return following Cleveland's bye week, Emerson's playing time could take a step back against Miami on Sunday, Nov. 13.

  • Browns' Martin Emerson: Fills in for Ward

    Emerson filled in after Denzel Ward (concussion) left Week 5's 30-28 loss to the Chargers. Emerson was on the field for 30 snaps, recording three tackles and a huge fourth-down pass breakup. That gave the Browns their final chance, but Cade York missed a 54-yard field-goal attempt with seconds remaining. If Ward is unable to play Week 6 against New England, Emerson is the likely starter with either Greedy Williams (hamstring) or A.J. Green stepping in as the third cornerback in nickel packages.

  • Browns' Martin Emerson: Ball hawks for TD

    Emerson had three solo tackles and an interception return for a touchdown in Friday's win over Jacksonville in preseason action. Emerson was beat on the Jaguars' first play, when Trevor Lawrence connected with Zay Jones for a 32-yard completion, but the rookie third-round pick made up for it in the second quarter when he won a 50-50 battle with Jeff Cotton, taking the ball out of the receiver's clutches for a 74-yard pick six. It was a big night for Cleveland draft picks, as Emerson and running back Jerome Ford accounted for all three touchdowns in a 24-13 win. Emerson has practiced with the ones in camp, but that's due to Denzel Ward (foot) being on the active/PUP list. Ward's expected to return before the start of the regular season, and Emerson will serve a depth role in a secondary that should be one of the best in the NFL.
