Browns S Tashaun Gipson remains a no-show Tuesday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/26/15) Browns Pro Bowl free safety Tashaun Gipson has remained absent from team on-field activities. He was not a participant at the OTA on Tuesday, per NFL.com.
He was also missing from the first set of voluntary practices.
Gipson, who has declined to sign his second-round tender, is seeking a long-term deal after a breakout 2014 in which he racked up six interceptions despite missing the last five games to a knee injury. That gave him 11 picks over the last two years.
Jordan Poyer served as the first-teamer in the Tuesday session.

|(5/9/15) Browns safety Tashaun Gipson is a restricted free agent, but he hasn't signed the team's second-round tender offer.
As a result, Gipson is absent from the weekend's voluntary OTAs. Despite that, he's been staying in touch with the team.
"I have talked to him," defensive coordinator Jim O'Neil said, per Ohio.com. "He's asked me questions. I've given him input. Do I wish he was here? Absolutely."
O'Neil added that, while everything is voluntary at this point of the year, Gipson will "have some catching up to do," when he returns.

Browns S Tashaun Gipson skips voluntary workout program

|(4/20/15) Safety Tashaun Gipson was not part of the Browns' offseason workout programs, which started Monday, as he protests the second-round tender the team offered him, per Cleveland.com.
Gipson, whose 11 interceptions over the past two seasons ranks second to the Seahawks' Richard Sherman, would make $2.356 million in 2015 if he doesn't sign a long-term deal with the Browns or another team first.
The Browns would have the right to match any offer, and if they don't, the new team would have to give the Browns a second-round pick.
