Bills Trade Tyrod Taylor to Browns, Reports say

Anna Jefferson | 11 March, 2018, 03:57

The teams came to terms on the deal Friday, said the people who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because NFL rules prohibit trades from being announced until next week when free agency opens and the league's new calendar year begins.

With three major trades on Friday, the Cleveland Browns let it be known that they intend to be taken seriously.

And to top it off, the Browns sent quarterback DeShone Kizer (their 2017 second-round pick) to Green Bay for Randall, swapping fourth- and fifth-round picks with the Packers in the process.

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. They could also target a QB in the draft or look for a veteran in free agency. The Browns gave up Kizer, who went 0-15 last season as a rookie, in the deal for Randall.

In Taylor's three seasons with the Bills, he played well but inconsistently.

Taylor, 28, carries only one year of starter's money ($18 million cap hit, per overthecap.com) on his current contract, so he sets up as a ideal stop-gap for a more affordable rookie quarterback who can sit for a year and learn, or replace Taylor halfway through 2018 if he's ready. Cleveland was feeling good after acquiring Jarvis Landry from the Dolphins for two picks (2018 4th round and 2019 7th round).

-The San Francisco 49ers will let the man that led the team in sacks last season, defensive end Elvis Dumervil, become a free agent next week.

He was due $13 million for the 2018 season and his release gives Seattle a salary cap savings of about $11 million. His yards per catch represented the lowest of his career at 8.8, but that's his game. Last season, he threw for 2,799 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Browns 10-time Pro Bowl left tackle Joe Thomas, who's contemplating whether to play next season or retire, is a fan of Taylor and said as much recently on the ThomaHawk Show podcast he co-hosts with former Cleveland receiver Andrew Hawkins. With the Browns owning the number one and number four overall picks this draft, there were talks of Sam Darnold being selected as their next guy at quarterback.

I'm sure Cleveland sees Tyrod as a potential starter/bridge quarterback for them as they continue to groom a young quarterback. His 400 receptions - resulting in 4,038 yards and 22 touchdowns - in his first four National Football League seasons is an National Football League record.
