Cleveland Browns Strikes Again: Browns Trade For Veteran Quarterback Tyrod Taylor

After 16 straight losses on the field, victory.

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. The trade won't be announced until Wednesday.

The Packers traded away cornerback Damarious Randall to the Cleveland Browns, in exchange for their second-round pick quarterback DeShone Kizer, according to National Football League reporter Ian Rapoport.

The same team that has won only one game in two years and flubbed finalizing a trade for Cincinnati quarterback AJ McCarron at the trade deadline pulled off three deals in the matter of a few hours on Friday. He took a $10 million dollar pay cut to stay with the team last season.

The Browns gave him more to think about.

Browns GM John Dorsey has had an eventful weekend.

Before landing Taylor, Cleveland was expected to target a veteran in free agency.

Jaitley files nomination; contest imminent with 14 nominees for 10 seats
The highest number of seven candidates - Ashok Bhajpai, Vijay Pal Singh Tomar, Sakal Deep Rajbhar, Kanta Kardam, Anil Jain, G.V.L. Bachchan to Rajya Sabha for 4th consecutive term, BSP supremo Mayawati may find it tough for her party candidate to sail through.

The reason for the unscheduled broadcast was the run of trades that the Browns made to close out the week. It will be because of both Buffalo and them that they got both Taylor and a rookie quarterback. Assuming they let Joe Webb III walk in the spring, Buffalo will be left with just one quarterback on their roster entering the free agency period.

In his time at free safety in college, Randall showed a strong ability to make plays on the ball, recording 6 interceptions and 12 passes defended from 2013-14.

Landry, 25, signed the franchise tag last Thursday and is slated to earn $15.982 million this season unless the Browns work toward a long-term contract. The deal could still fall through, as we saw past year, but a wide receiver corps of Landry, Gordon, and Coleman is a nice start. The first big acquisition was for three-time Pro Bowl receiver Jarvis Landry.

Thus, if the Cleveland Browns truly are looking to be a better franchise in 2018, they will make this move in April.

Randall, a first-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, was set to play a key role in the secondary under new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine. Yes, the team does save a whole bunch of money by trading him before the start of the new league year, but they also lose their leverage when it comes to trading up in the draft.

In a Week 4 game against Chicago on September 28, Randall was benched for the second half for apparent insubordination and was later kicked off the sideline by McCarthy, who sent him to the locker room. For the record, the number amounts to more wins than Cleveland has had in the last five seasons.

Dorsey's remodeling of the Browns is far from finished. Sherman was due $13 million for the 2018 season and his release gives Seattle a salary cap savings of about $11 million.
