Did Bills make the right decision in trading Tyrod Taylor?

Did Bills make the right decision in trading Tyrod Taylor?

If the Cardinals did in fact make a trade offer that was "easily trumped" by a third-round draft pick, then their interest was mild.

That jump-the-gun scenario is entirely possibly, but it's certainly not set in stone. His departure will impact the Browns' plans in free agency and the draft. That's how Friday's flurry of action kicked off. The Browns may still do that and are expected to use the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft on a QB. We also tend to overvalue draft picks, getting caught up in the hypothetical of what it might become.

Dorsey's whirlwind of deals over the past two days may have been prompted by a concern that free agents would be afraid to sign with the Browns because of the team's struggles and constant turnover. However, taking a running back with the first pick is not a logical move.

But unlike Kizer, who led the National Football League with 22 interceptions, went 0-15 and went through numerous growing pains as a rookie starter, Taylor will have offensive weapons around him. 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. But NFL players know Taylor, they've seen him play, they've seen him start games. While the Browns already have Josh Gordon, Corey Coleman, David Njoku, Seth DeValve and a big receiving threat out of the backfield in Duke Johnson Jr, adding Landry to that mix only makes the Browns better. He built their bank account to roughly $100 million and got fired for the far more popular Mike Maccagnan-an evaluator who had the privilege of immediately spending that money in free agency to great fanfare.

Thomas tore his triceps muscle last season, which ended an incredible iron man streak of 10,363 consecutive snaps played. However, one move could put them back on the map in 2018. While inheriting the stockpile of draft picks Sashi Brown acquired during his tenure in Cleveland, Dorsey vowed to make changes to the organization, and boy did he.

Landry signed a $16 million, one-year franchise tag Thursday with Miami, clearing the path for his trade.

It also follows the blueprint laid out by Sashi Brown, who was sacked in December when Dorsey was hired.

Moving back with the Bills might seem like a lot as they would miss out on the elite talent at the top of the draft class but depending on the way the draft shakes out, it might be the Colts' best move.

The team past year traded back one spot from pick No. 2 to 3 for a package that included multiple third round picks, which ultimately gave them the capital to trade back into Round 1 for Reuben Foster.
