The Cleveland Browns will continue to tinker with their quarterback room.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday the Browns are expected to shop Cody Kessler.
I will, though. 8. Browns trade for quality quarterback, receiver tandem The Cleveland Browns were extremely active to start the offseason and have not slowed down to date. And while they traded away some quality talent, they also brought some back in. Whether or not the Browns intend to take a quarterback No. 1 overall in the 2018 NFL Draft, they needed a starter for the upcoming season and were able to land by way of the Buffalo Bills, who accepted a third-round pick (No. 65 overall) in exchange for Tyrod Taylor.
With a quarterback in place, the Browns then sent DeShone Kizer to the Green Bay Packers for cornerback Damarious Randall. On the very same day the Browns acquired Taylor, they also landed wide receiver Jarvis Landry from the Miami Dolphins for a 2018 fourth-round pick and a 2019 seventh-round pick. It was a lot of wheeling and dealing for the Browns — just a small amount of the work they did through trade — but it gave them a quality quarterback-wide receiver combination for the 2018 season, and kept them in position to take a quarterback No. 1 overall should they so desire.
They can keep him for two, maybe three years before they have to worry about him becoming an unrestricted free agent. He’s due $8.459 million this season. He can get the franchise tag next season for about $15 million. That’s two years and less than $24 million for one of the NFL’s best players, a bargain for the Giants. And they can franchise him twice more after that, too.
What would two first-round picks — the reported asking price — do to make up for the loss of a value like that Presumably, one of them would have to be a receiver, considering the corps Beckham would leave behind would be below average at best. Sterling Shepard is good, but hardly dynamic. And who else is there that the Giants could actually trust
The answer: no one. So they’d draft receiver to replace Beckham, then cross their fingers that he’ll be the next Beckham instead of the next Corey Coleman, or even the next Sammy Watkins NHL Jerseys Cheap who went before Beckham in the 2014 draft That seems like a brilliant strategy: Dump a weapon that every team, perhaps outside of Atlanta (Julio Jones) and Pittsburgh (Antonio Brown), would love to have in the hopes that some other kid receiver can be half as good, plus whatever Order Cheap Jerseys Online tackle or defensive end they draft with the other pick.
