Meder Sacks Brady As Browns Fall To 0-5

Meder Sacks Brady As Browns Fall To 0-5


In 2015, former Ashland University All-American defensive lineman Jamie Meder's first career National Football League sack came against a rookie quarterback.

In 2016, Meder's second career NFL sack came by tracking down one of the league's all-time greats.

Meder, in his second full season with the Cleveland Browns, sacked New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, and also ended Sunday's (Oct. 9) 33-13 home loss with two total tackles, a tackle for loss and a quarterback hurry.

In five regular-season games in 2016, Meder has 14 total tackles (seven solo) and a sack.

In his first full NFL season in 2015, Meder came off the bench in all 16 regular-season games for the Browns as a key member of the defensive line rotation as both a nose tackle and a defensive end. He finished 2015 with 33 total tackles (16 solo) and a sack of Tennessee Titans rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota on Sept. 20.

Meder became the first former Eagle to play in a regular-season game for the Browns in Week 17 of the 2014 campaign at Baltimore, recording one solo tackle. He originally was an undrafted free agent with the Ravens two years ago, and spent more than two months on their practice squad before joining Cleveland.

Following in a long line of highly-decorated AU defensive linemen, Meder was a two-time All-American, Ashland's first Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Freshman of the Year (2010), a two-time GLIAC Defensive Lineman of the Year (2012-13) and a four-time All-GLIAC first-teamer.

His collegiate career totals include 247 total tackles (96 solo), 35 tackles for loss, 14 sacks and three forced fumbles.

Meder is the eighth former Eagle to play in an NFL regular-season game.
