News: Whitner, who had six tackles (five solo) in Sunday's loss to Baltimore, finished the season as the Browns' leading tackler with 106 total tackles (68 solo). He also added one interception and forced a fumble.
Impact: Whitner racked up his highest single-season tackle total since 2010 and was the only Cleveland player to eclipse the 100-tackle mark this year. The Browns finished last in the league with 141.6 rushing yards allowed per game, as opposing rushers were able to get to the second level quite frequently, opening up opportunities for Whitner to rack up high tackle totals. This effect made the 29-year-old safety one of the top defensive back IDP options in 2014, and unless the Cleveland front seven is able to significantly improve, he could be poised for another 100-tackle campaign in his age-30 season.
