The Browns ensured they will control Damarious Randall’s contract through at least the 2019 season by exercising the fifth-year option on his rookie deal Monday.

The move had been expected ever since new Browns General Manager John Dorsey traded quarterback DeShone Kizer to the Green Bay Packers last month as part of a deal for Randall.

Randall is scheduled to make $1.514 million, including a roster bonus, next season, and now he’s set to earn $9.069 million on the fifth year of his deal in 2019, according to the contract tracking website Spotrac.com. He’s scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in March 2020.

The Browns plan to move Randall, 25, to free safety, allowing 2017 first-round pick Jabrill Peppers to transition from that spot to strong safety, a more natural position for him.

Randall, 5-foot-11 and 196 pounds, played cornerback in his three seasons with the Packers, who drafted him in the first round (No. 30 overall) in 2015. But he has said he prefers free safety, the spot he manned during his career at Arizona State.

A starter in 30 of his 39 regular-season games as a member of the Packers, Randall compiled 144 tackles and 32 passes defensed, with 10 interceptions, including two he returned for touchdowns. He also started all five playoff games in which he appeared and had two interceptions.

On the list

Browns running back Carlos Hyde is ranked 97th on NFL Network’s The Top 100 Players of 2018. It’s his first appearance on the list, which is determined solely by players, according to the network.

In March, the Browns signed Hyde to a three-year, $15.25 million contract after the Ohio State product spent his first four NFL seasons with the San Francisco 49ers.
