On Saturday morning, the Colts traded back with the New York Jets in a move that now gives Indianapolis 7 picks in the first two rounds of the 2018 and 2019 Drafts.

The top three picks in the draft, in order, now feature the Browns, the New York Giants, and then the Jets, making it quite possible that all three of them will select a quarterback, though the Giants are sort of the wildcard. Last year, Cleveland selected EDGE rusher Myles Garrett with the first pick (the right choice), but they also had the 12th pick.

With the team now set at quarterback (what a weird sentence to type when referencing the Cleveland Browns), they can take a Best Player Available approach with the fourth overall selection.

NY has been busy getting quarterbacks this off-season.

After trading with the Jets, the Colts have nine picks in the draft and four within the top 50 selections.

Bridgewater was a first-round pick in 2014 out of Louisville and was largely considered a rising star at his position.

The opportunity to move back and add even more picks could be there for the Colts, depending on how things play out with the four teams picking in front of them when it comes to the quarterbacks.

Fifth Harmony Going On A Break To Pursue Solo Projects
Now the rest of the girls are following suit, though they aren't currently expecting it to be a permanent split. The next month, Fifth Harmony were back and stronger than ever after releasing their latest, self-titled album.

One other interesting Bills-related note from King's Monday Morning Quarterback column: The team was reportedly "seriously interested" in Jets quarterback Josh McCown before he opted to re-sign in NY. For years now, the Jets have struggled at the quarterback position, and it has hurt the franchise.

The Rams, among the busiest teams in the offseason, announced late Friday that they re-signed center John Sullivan to a two-year deal.

Blount joined his third team in as many years, after winning a Super Bowl ring in each of the past two seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots.

Teddy Bridgewater is getting a fresh start in a new place that suddenly has a crowded quarterbacks room - and could be adding another signal caller soon.

Hey, James: I do think the Browns will draft their favorite quarterback at No. 1, especially now they that they know the Giants and Jets could both go QB at No. 2 and No. 3. So now we get ready to enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Not even 24 hours after No.16 seed University of Maryland Baltimore County destroyed brackets everywhere in upsetting the top overall seed Virginia Cavaliers, the New York Jets made a decision to top that in making an even bigger move to the top in the upcoming 2018 NFL Draft. The Jets, if they want one, will get one of the star quarterbacks coming out, Sam Darnold or Josh Rosen or Josh Allen. With the Colts trading down, that most likely means the Buffalo Bills will have to find a new trading partner if they pursue their franchise quarterback.

Baker Mayfield - Many fans have tried comparing Mayfield to former Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel, but Baker has reiterated that they aren't the same person. After helping lead the Jets to the AFC championship game his first two seasons, Sanchez mostly struggled, and the likes of Greg McElroy, Geno Smith, Michael Vick, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Bryce Petty and McCown have all started games in the years since. There's not a single draft expert out there who would conclude that quarterbacks make up the top-three overall players in the draft. They need help in the running department, receiving department, offensive line, and throughout the defense; for those keeping track at home, that's virtually everywhere.
