Ja'Marcus Bradley, Gets new contract from Pittsburgh

The Steelers signed Bradley to a reserve/future contract Tuesday.

Analysis: Bradley spent the majority of the 2022 regular season unsigned until joining up with the Steelers' practice squad Nov. 23. While he never suited up for Pittsburgh, it appears the 26-year-old made enough of an impression to earn a prospective contract heading into the 2023 offseason. Bradley has yet to make his NFL debut.

Harrison Bryant, Two catches in finale

Bryant caught two of two targets for 20 yards in a 28-14 loss to the Steelers in Week 18.

Analysis: Bryant finished the season with season highs in catches (31), targets (42) and yards (239) along with one touchdown. An increase in production was expected after Browns didn't bring tight end Austin Hooper back, although Bryant was clearly second behind David Njoku, who lived up to the four-year deal he signed during the offseason. Bryant has one more year left on his rookie deal and should return in the same role for the 2023 season. Cleveland's down year was not the fault of its receivers. The club is in "win now" mode after sinking so much into quarterback Deshaun Watson, so expect the same crew of targets back next season, when the Browns hope to see its pricey quarterback live up to his price tag.

D'Ernest Johnson, Quietly heads to free agency

Johnson played 10 snaps on special teams and did not play on offense in Sunday's 28-14 loss to Pittsburgh in Week 18.

Analysis: Johnson finished the year with just seven touches -- four rushes and three receptions -- and heads quietly into the offseason. It was a different tale last season, after Johnson capably filled in for injured backs Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, rushing 100 times for 534 yards and three touchdowns. There's very little mileage on Johnson, who turns 27 in February. The Browns are expected to go with Jerome Ford as the top backup to Chubb, and Johnson likely feels ready for a bigger role than he had in 2022. Both he and Kareem Hunt are in the final year of their deals and will entertain offers from other teams.

Greg Joseph, Makes all three FG attempts

Joseph went 3-for-3 on field-goal attempts and 2-for-3 on point-after tries during Sunday's 29-13 win over Chicago.

Analysis: Joseph made field goals from 28, 50 and 41 yards which should be a confidence booster after missing attempts from 46 and 50 yards in last week's blowout loss at Green Bay.

Cade York, Quiet finish

York did not attempt a field goal and converted both extra-point kicks in Sunday's 28-14 loss to the Steelers in Week 18.

Analysis: York had a quiet season finale but finished the season on a high note, making all eight kicks over the final three weeks. It was an uneven season for the rookie, who became a legend in training but made just 75 percent (24 of 32) of field-goal attempts. The Browns spent fourth-round draft capital on the LSU product, and while he may not have solidified the kicking game as envisioned, they expect him to be their kicker in 2023.
