Browns Make a Flurry of Trades to Revamp Their Roster

Browns Make a Flurry of Trades to Revamp Their Roster

But this is a think-big move from second-year general manager Brandon Beane and coach Sean McDermott, as they have their sights set on finding a quarterback who can bring greater success than what Taylor has provided.

Landry has said he wanted to remain with the Dolphins, and they said they wanted him back.

The Browns are still expected to take a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft.

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.

It's worth noting that Taylor should be looked as a bridge quarterback, as he'll become a free agent after next season. This past season, he led the league in receptions with 112 despite playing on an anemic Dolphins offense, which makes him the first player since Lydell Mitchell in 1977 to change teams the season after leading the league in catches, according to NFL Research. The Browns have more than $113 million in salary-cap space available.

Taylor regained the starting job the following week and finished the season winning three of his final five starts, with both losses coming against New England.

The Baltimore Ravens, an AFC North foe of the Browns, were among the other teams interested making a move for Landry, the Miami Herald reported.

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.

So much for the Buffalo Bills being in quarterback purgatory, stuck in no man's land between having a franchise quarterback and having access to the draft's best talent.

"I could be the browns QB with Flash (Gordon) & Juice (Landry) playing receiver!" Taylor isn't the franchise quarterback we're talking about, however.

Worley recorded 64 tackles, two interceptions and 1.0 sack in 15 games, including 14 starts, last season.

Bills fans get ready, this offseason has just begun.

Friday, though, mainly was a reminder that this is not Dorsey's first rodeo, with 26 years of National Football League player personnel experience including four years as GM of the Kansas City Chiefs, and that this draft will proceed as he sees fit. He has caught 74.5 percent of the passes thrown his way and dropped the ball only 21 times in his career, a drop rate of just 4.9 percent, which would have been a top-10 rank in 2017.
