Minutes after they reportedly agreed to trades for two of the AFC East's most prominent players, the NFL's worst team-turned-offseason sensation got busy with another transaction, this one a deal for former Green Bay Packers first-round draft pick Damarious Randall.
Saturday brought another trade for Cleveland that took fans by surprise.
The move acts as a bridge at the QB position for the Browns as they'll still look for a franchise QB in this year's draft, but Taylor will act as a serviceable arm for the 2018 season. As NFL Network analyst Ian Rappaport stated shortly after the moves, the Browns aren't so amusing no more.
But, head coach Hue Jackson named Todd Haley as the Browns' newest offensive coordinator - a position he held previously with the Steelers - and it seems their revamped offense could benefit from a new person leading it.
Here are the Bills' picks, including two in the first round after moving back in a deal with Kansas in the 2017 draft to take Patrick Mahomes. However, why would Cleveland even want to trade down that far? "But I'm excited by the moves [general manager] John [Dorsey] made".
The Browns knew it would be hard to lure free agents to Cleveland because their record of 1-31 the past two seasons under coach Hue Jackson reeks of incompetence.
Both teams could be better off with Randall in Cleveland, and his value to the Browns shouldn't be compared strictly on production, for he had plenty of opportunities in Green Bay and rarely showed consistent ability to capitalize upon those. The reigning AFC Champions will receive defensive tackle Danny Shelton and the Browns receive a conditional draft pick.
Tyrod Taylor gives the Browns their first legitimate quarterback in a really long time. They think, in the right situation, Taylor could be an excellent quarterback.
House Republicans reach opposite conclusion from intelligence community
The Senate Intelligence Committee is preparing to put out recommendations and hold a hearing on election security this month. CNN reported , citing an unnamed source familiar with the matter, that Rep.
The Tennessee Titans have told backup quarterback Matt Cassel, safety Da'Norris Searcy and receiver Eric Weems that they will be released.
But the question still remains, is Cleveland done yet? He gives Cleveland a legit quarterback with starting experience to tout to potential newcomers.
Who else is out there?
That said, crazier things have happened during the draft, especially with the Browns.
How will this affect the Browns' free agency plans?
The Pittsburgh Steelers have All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown to go along with JuJu Smith-Schuster and Martavis Bryant.
The Jets know they will end up overpaying players in free agency, but they can do that because of the war chest they now have. Should Cleveland finally turn it around-how many offseasons has that sentence been written?-the narrative will focus on Dorsey's steady hand and personnel experience.
