Justin Hardee delivers a significant message after officially signing with the Browns.

The Cleveland Browns have maintained a relatively low profile in free agency this offseason, with their primary emphasis on retaining the core players who propelled them to the playoffs last season.

 

While they secured the re-signing of defensive end Za’Darius Smith, the Browns also made a few new acquisitions, including former Minnesota Viking Jordan Hicks.

On Tuesday, the Browns made a significant move by acquiring Justin Hardee, a Cleveland native. Hardee took to Twitter to express his gratitude for the opportunity to play for his hometown team.

 

“Cleveland!!!! Let’s go, I’m back home! Year 8 blessed. I had no clue but God always knew!!!” he tweeted.

It’s indeed a rare and fortunate opportunity for Justin Hardee to play for his hometown team, the Cleveland Browns. After going undrafted from the University of Illinois in 2017, Hardee spent his first four seasons with the New Orleans Saints before joining the New York Jets in 2022.

 

Throughout his NFL career, Hardee has primarily made his impact on special teams, although he has also seen occasional snaps on defense. Additionally, in 2018, he even caught a pass on offense for 10 yards and a first down, showcasing his versatility on the field.

Despite facing setbacks such as injuries to star players like Nick Chubb and Deshaun Watson, the Cleveland Browns managed to win 11 games last season. However, they faced a tough defeat in the playoffs against the Houston Texans.

 

It remains uncertain when Nick Chubb will be ready to return to game action, but general manager Andrew Berry appears confident that Deshaun Watson will be prepared to lead the team when the 2024 campaign begins.
