Deep thinking: Browns playing rookie safety Peppers way back

BEREA, Ohio (AP) Jabrill Peppers is playing yet another new position: way, way-back.

Cleveland's rookie safety has become the last line of defense for the Browns, who have gone to extreme measures to prevent teams from completing deep passes on their secondary.

Peppers has lined up 25 yards off the line of scrimmage in Cleveland's first two games, and the unusual strategy - devised by coordinator Gregg Williams - has been mostly effective in stopping the deep ball.
