Major trades land Taylor, Landry with Browns

So new general manager John Dorsey went shopping for some air fresheners to mask the stench.

ESPN's Adam Schefter was first to report that the Packers are trading cornerback Damarious Randall to the Browns. Sending Kizer to Green Bay was a surprise, but the Browns evidently like Tyrod Taylor better as the guy to hold the position while a drafted player grows. They've also done all this while keeping the Nos. Running backs have the shortest career in the National Football League and play 2.57 years on average, while quarterbacks have the 2nd longest career in the National Football League and play 4.44 years on average. It was assumed the Browns would target Cincinnati's AJ McCarron, whom they tried to land in a trade last season before the deal was squelched when the teams failed to properly file paperwork to the league.

Keenum provided a heroic 2017 effort, giving the Vikings an efficient, effective signal-caller who balanced the team after it lost starter Sam Bradford and stud rookie running back Dalvin Cook to knee injuries early in the year. That's a serious addition of talent to a winless team.

Kizer showed flashes of potential and promise, but not enough and the Browns decided it was time to move on.

Or that Dorsey benefits from his plan. I am angry at the fact that the Browns would not choose a quarterback in one of the best quarterback classes in the last 5 years. He's careful with the ball, but the criticism of him is he can be too careful and overemphasize the checkdown. This frees them up to take the best player available in the draft instead of reaching for a position out of need.

This is actually a pretty solid return for Taylor, especially given his contract situation. The team has reportedly been considering taking him with the first-overall pick in the draft, and if they end up with a quarterback in free agency, that makes it all the more likely. The gap between those two totals averages out to four points per game. If he plays every game the way he did against Gordon, this trade would be a steal. Green Bay's Davon House knows Dorsey, assistant GM Eliot Wolf and vice president of player personnel Alonzo Highsmith from his days with the Packers, and he played under defensive backs coach DeWayne Walker for two seasons with the Jaguars. The Browns are expected to work out a new contract with Landry. The 25-year-old then asked to be traded. The front office will be able to address many of these needs via the draft, so it'll be intriguing to see how they prioritize their spending on the free agent market. Even if he is bridge quarterback, he is a solid option to carry the offense.
