01:42 PM ET 08.21 | While much of the attention surrounding the Cleveland Browns recently has focused around their injuries and the "quarterback competition," there was another positional battle that was pushed to the back burner. The starting free safety battle to complete the Browns' impressive secondary was a three-horse race and Tashaun Gipson has emerged as the starter. Gipson beat out Johnson Bademosi and Jamoris Slaughter for the starting gig. He entered the league as an undrafted free agent out of Wyoming a year ago, but he was able to appear in 10 games. With the experience as a rookie under his belt, Gipson should be more than serviceable in the defensive backfield and add a great complement to heavy-hitting strong safety T.J. Ward.

Wouldn't be surprised to see the Browns come out with a 9-7 season or better.
