Browns ship Kizer to Packers


The Buffalo Bills have traded starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for the first pick in the third round in the upcoming National Football League draft.

All in a day's work. Watson had the luxury of throwing to two outstanding wide receivers in DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller.

The Eagles have agreed to trade wide receiver Torrey Smith to the Panthers for cornerback Daryl Worley, according to two people familiar with the deal. If Hue Jackson and new offensive coordinator Todd Haley's plan for the offense is to be pass-heavy, then targeting receiving threats in free agency to add to the receiving corps could make sense.

In order to acquire Smith, Hurney will have to give up a starting cornerback who turned 23 in February. That said, the eighth-year quarterback does share some similar traits in that he is quite mobile can be a legitimate threat with his feet that allows to extend plays or pick yards on the run. I actually thought that the Browns had figured out the formula and were going to be successful in the 2018 draft and in the offseason. The Browns will send a fourth-round selection this year as well as a seventh-round pick in 2019.

Dorsey understands that since the Browns can't point to anything tangible on the field from the last two years, they needed to generate buzz and create some momentum before the free agency period begins at 4 p.m. Wednesday.

Evans caught 71 passes for 1,001 yards and five touchdowns in 2017.

From the Packers perspective, they get a talented 22-year-old passer to potentially back up Aaron Rodgers after Brett Hundley was far too uneven in 11 appearances (nine starts) for an injured Rodgers a year ago. Despite having 12 draft choices, the Rule of 51 - which dictates only the top 51 contracts count against a team's salary cap - requires only $3 or $4 million to sign the incoming rookie class. Despite heavy investment at cornerback over the past three years, the Packers are still looking at one returning starter (Kevin King) now on the roster. The 13-year veteran also played for New England, Kansas City, Minnesota, Buffalo and Dallas. He was brutal in Cleveland past year on a team that won exactly zero games.

If the Los Angeles Rams' defense is as relentless in the upcoming season as the team's front office has been in reassembling it, the future could be bright.

"I think it's a great trade", Thomas said. McCarron was nearly traded to Cleveland before the 2017 trade deadline but the trade was not made official as a result of some confusion in the Browns front office.
