Former University of Alabama defensive back Ronnie Harrison is beginning to thrive in Cleveland. 

On Sunday, Harrison earned the start at safety over Karl Joseph and he delivered for the Browns. He tallied up nine tackles, one sack, and one fumble recovery, while also tipping a pass that forced an interception in the team's 37-34 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. 

Those efforts have earned him the Bama Central Crimson Tide Pro Athlete of the Week.

On the year, Harrison now has 14 tackles, four passes defended, one fumble recovery, and one interception that he returned 42 yards for a touchdown. His career has seen a resurgence since he was traded from the Jacksonville Jaguars at the beginning of the year.
