Browns remake offense with key trades

Damarious Randall to Cleveland

Damarious Randall to Cleveland

The Miami Dolphins agreed to trade the Pro Bowl receiver to the Cleveland Browns for two draft picks, two people familiar with the deal said Friday. He completed 62.6 percent of his passes last season for 2,799 yards and 14 touchdowns with four interceptions. He had the second-best turnover-worthy-play percentage in the league last season and consistently ranks among the best in that category.

"Y'all better understand (stuff) about to get SERIOUS".

The trade can not become official until the new league year begins on Wednesday.

Kizer was going to have to earn a spot with the Browns, and he'll be in a similar situation with the Packers, who were forced to start Brett Hundley nine games last season after Rodgers broke his collarbone.

Landry typically plays slot receiver, and the Browns have been disappointed with the production of former first-round draft pick Corey Coleman, who has been injured the past two seasons.

Now, suddenly teamed with the always explosive Josh Gordon and quite possibly Saquon Barkley, Landry and the Browns offense looks pretty damn potent on paper. The dynamic Taylor, who finished with a 23-21 record in three seasons with Buffalo, can affect the game as a passer or runner and he's the type of quarterback Browns coach Hue Jackson has sought since coming to Cleveland.

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.

Tyrod Taylor, 28, carries only one year of starter's money on his current contract, so he sets up as a ideal stop-gap for a more affordable rookie quarterback.

Trading Taylor leaves the Bills with a significant hole at the position with Nathan Peterman - a fifth-round draft pick a year ago - the only quarterback left on their roster. His yards per catch represented the lowest of his career at 8.8, but that's his game.

While the rest of the football world has been preparing for free agency to begin for their first real chance at roster overhaul this offseason, the Cleveland Browns spent Friday making moves all over the place to parlay some of their stockpiled draft capital into proven NFL-caliber players. The team's top quarterback targets in free agency appear to be Kirk Cousins and Case Keenum.

-Wide receiver Mike Evans agreed to a five-year contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers worth a $82.5 million, according to multiple media outlets. They freed up a ton of a cap space and received a solid draft pick in the process.
