Bills trade QB Tyrod Taylor to Browns for draft pick

Bills trade QB Tyrod Taylor to Browns for draft pick

What a insane 24 hours it has been in the NFL. Cleveland has gone 1-31 the last two years and a large percentage of Cleveland faithful believe this is due in large part to the quarterback play.

If winning the offseason means anything, the Cleveland Browns are already working on a banner to unveil Week 1. As NFL Network analyst Ian Rappaport stated shortly after the moves, the Browns aren't so amusing no more.

After the Browns went out and traded for Tyrod Taylor, Jarvis Landry and Demarious Randall over the weekend, Thomas was asked if the moves will inspire him to play at least another season. The Browns will send a fourth-round selection this year as well as a seventh-round pick in 2019.

The Browns can expect similar production from Barkley right away and he would be able to keep opposing defenses guessing on whether he was getting the ball or if he was acting as a receiver. In return, Cleveland will send Buffalo a third-round pick. He has topped 1,000 yards receiving in each of his four pro seasons, amassing 309 receptions for 4,579 yards and 32 touchdowns.

The trade conversations surely were comfortable ones for Gutekunst, given that the Browns are now essentially Green Bay East with general manager John Dorsey and top personnel lieutenants Eliot Wolf and Alonzo Highsmith all being ex-Packers personnel staffers who worked with Gutekunst at 1265 Lombardi Avenue.

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.

According to reports, the deal involving Taylor is for the Number 65 pick.

The Browns ended their slew of trades on Saturday with the New England Patriots. ESPN reported that neither of the picks is in the first or second rounds.

The temptation to take Barkley is probably heightened by adding Taylor, but Cleveland would be wise to identify the quarterback it likes most in the draft class and ensure that he lands with the Browns. Taylor can make plays happen with his arm and his legs. On offense (besides quarterback), expect the Jets to be aggressive at running back, center and possibly wide receiver.

But Taylor now fills that veteran role, and the Browns can use one of their two first-round picks to take a franchise quarterback to build around for the future. Taylor isn't winning you any playoff games, but there are quarterbacks in this draft who will.

It has been so long since the Browns had a winning season.

The Bills, who own the 21st and 22nd picks, have the ammo to move into the top 5, meaning they could swipe a quarterback coveted by the Jets (if they don't land Cousins).

It is still uncertain if they have enough talent to go up against the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cincinnati Bengals for the division.
