Packers land DeShone Kizer from Browns, but what about Brett Hundley?

Packers land DeShone Kizer from Browns, but what about Brett Hundley?

Cleveland acquired star receiver Jarvis Landry from the Dolphins for two draft picks, before giving the Bills a third-round selection for quarterback Tyrod Taylor. The Dolphins began shopping him when the parties were unable to reach an agreement on a long-term contract, which he's likely to get from the Browns. The Browns are thought to be considering drafting a quarterback with one of their first-round picks. Were the Bills smart to move Taylor? Former Browns receiver Terrelle Pryor has expressed interest in returning to the team, while other receivers in Eric Decker, Sammy Watkins, Mike Wallace, and Brandon Tate are also on the list now.

The simple answer is yes. The team could cut him with a penalty of $55,908, but it seems silly to trade for Kizer when you already have a decent backup.

However, Kizer rarely looked comfortable in the pocket, partly because teams were constantly blitzing him, and he was sacked 38 times.

In exchange, the Browns are getting cornerback Damarious Randall. Cleveland is sending its first pick in the third round to Buffalo, the sources said. Taylor is the old man of this crew at 28 years old. The team is rumored to be very interested in the free agent pivot, and although he'd command upwards of $30 million in cap space to sign, he's a high-priced gamble that would stabilize the offense.

The deal will not become official until Wednesday at the start of the new league year.

-Nick Foles hears numerous swirling offseason trade rumors, but the Super Bowl LII Most Valuable Player prefers not to talk about them. In fact, their first-round pick (sixth overall) is worth more than the 21st and 22nd picks - 1,600 points to 1,580, according to the commonly used trade value chart. Teams are not permitted to announce any trades until next week.

But Dorsey did not risk being rebuffed in free agency and winding up empty.

The timing of the trade is both a blessing and a curse for Buffalo. Cleveland's plan all along during this offseason appears to have been to find a veteran quarterback to help bridge the gap while the "new franchise quarterback" gets a chance to sit, learn and develop.

The Bills are no longer fooling anybody.

BUCCANEERS: Mike Evans agreed to a five-year, $82.5 million contract extension that makes him the second-highest paid receiver in the National Football League, behind Antonio Brown.

Saturday brought another trade for Cleveland that took fans by surprise. They freed up a ton of a cap space and received a solid draft pick in the process. "We'll be prepared to know the spots in the draft that we need to move back (to) and who the players (are) we are able to take and acquire if we do move back".
