Packers trade cornerback Damarious Randall to Browns for quarterback DeShone Kizer

The Packers now hold the first pick on the draft's third day (No. 101) and the first pick in the fifth round (No. 138).

Randall had a blowup in the Packers' Thursday night victory over the Chicago Bears in Week 4 last season, which head coach Mike McCarthy called "an internal matter".

The Cleveland Browns are continuing to make moves as the new league year approaches. He and Rodgers were the only quarterbacks on the roster before the Kizer trade.

The good thing about Randall though is he doesn't handcuff the team to one position. He threw four interceptions.

"You're talking about words of frustration", McCarthy remarked.

Kizer, who went 0-15 as a starter and led the National Football League with 22 interceptions during a straining rookie season, will compete for Green Bay's backup job behind star Aaron Rodgers. "He needs to focus on himself". According to Ian Rapoport, the Browns have shipped last year's second-round pick DeShone Kizer to the Green Bay Packers. We all understand what happened in the Chicago game, but I thought from the Chicago game on he played at a very high level. "He needs to go home and self-evaluate and clean his own house".

Randall was the 30th overall pick in 2015 and 10 interceptions in 39 games, 30 of which were starts.

Having sent their former first-round cornerback to the new-look Browns, the Packers welcome a quarterback of similar draft pedigree. Their depth chart now consists of 2017 second-round pick Kevin King, who is coming off shoulder surgery; Quinton Rollins, a 2015 second-round pick coming off a ruptured Achilles' tendon; and youngsters Josh Hawkins, Lenzy Pipkins, Donatello Brown and Herb Waters.

Green Bay traded a legitimate starter for a guy who, if everything goes to plan, won't ever have to play in 2018 or 2019.

Packer fans are already wondering if this opens the door for a pursuit of Richard Sherman, and while this could be a realistic scenario, it is still much more likely that the team would select Josh Jackson with the 14th pick in this year's draft rather than pay significant money to an aging player. Moving up 13 spots in two rounds is nothing to sneeze at.
