Former Ashland University All-American defensive lineman Jamie Meder continues to make plays for the National Football League's Cleveland Browns.

As good as Meder has been in 2015, however, he can't stop opponents from making game-winning field goals with no time remaining. 

Meder, in his first full NFL season with the Browns, made two solo tackles in Cleveland's 30-27 loss on Sunday (Oct. 4) night at San Diego. The Chargers won at the final gun on a 34-yard field goal.

In four regular-season games this season, Meder has recorded nine total tackles (three solo) and a sack. 

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

In four 2015 preseason games (one start), Meder finished with 11 total tackles (eight solos), one sack and a forced fumble. According to, Meder graded out as the Browns' best player in the preseason. 

Following in a long line for 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.
