Bademosi played defensive back and special teams for the Browns since being signed as a UDFA out of Stanford in 2012. He had 20 tackles in 2015 and known as a very good special teams player.
From the Detroit Lions:
A four-year (2012-15) cornerback and standout on special teams for the Cleveland Browns, Bademosi joins the Lions in 2016 after co-leading the NFL in total special teams tackles last season with 17 (12 solo). He led the Browns in special teams tackles (co-led in 2014) each of his four seasons in Cleveland, and his 61 special teams tackles since 2012 rank second in the NFL during that span behind only Arizona CB Justin Bethel (64).
