Wild day of trades has Browns fans losing their heads — Twitter reaction

The sales pitch is suddenly enticing.

A person with knowledge of the deal tells The Associated Press that the Broncos have agreed to trade star cornerback Aqib Talib to the Rams for a mid-round draft pick, believed to be a fifth-rounder. He threw 51 touchdown passes and only 16 interceptions those three seasons with a combined passer rating of 92.5. Now new GM John Dorsey is putting them to good use as he builds what will certainly be a much more competitive team on the field.

Thomas referred to trades that brought quarterback Tyrod Taylor, receiver Jarvis Landry and cornerback Damarious Randall to Cleveland and sent quarterback DeShone Kizer to Green Bay and defensive lineman Danny Shelton to New England.

As ESPN's Adam Schefter said on Twitter Friday, a full five days before trades can become official and 2018 free agency begins, the Packers have informed Randall, who intercepted a career-high four passes in 2017, that he's been traded to Cleveland.

After all, players know players.

The Browns traded a third-round pick - No. 65 overall - to the Buffalo Bills for quarterback Tyrod Taylor.

Currently, they have at least Josh Gordon and Corey Coleman at wide receiver. Dumervil had 6.5 sacks in a limited role last season, 3.5 more than anyone else on the team. However, contracts can not be executed until free agency officially kicks off at 4 p.m. Wednesday, March 14.

When a team holding the number one pick the draft doesn't have a franchise quarterback, popular opinion among draft experts has them taking a quarterback at that number one spot.

Thousands of people have fled heavy shelling on villages and towns near the Turkish border, many of them into Afrin town. As part of the Turkey-led Operation Olive Branch, the FSA captured the base after a brief clash with the militants.


Taylor carries a cap hit of $16 million, while Landry's is $15.982 million.

The trade might also be a stop-gap solution in Cleveland where Taylor is named the starter this season while an early draft pick like USC's Sam Darnold would be given a year to learn an offense that has sputtered for about two decades.

BUCCANEERS: Mike Evans agreed to a five-year, $82.5 million contract extension that makes him the second-highest paid receiver in the National Football League, behind Antonio Brown.

Re-signing Terrelle Pryor is a possibility. He has topped 1,000 yards receiving in each of his four pro seasons, amassing 309 receptions for 4,579 yards and 32 touchdowns. Taylor can make plays happen with his arm and his legs.

That, of course, is the bad news about the Cleveland Browns. Instead, the 22-year-old goes to Green Bay, where he will work on cutting down on interceptions and improving accuracy behind Aaron Rodgers.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown to go along with JuJu Smith-Schuster and Martavis Bryant.

The San Francisco 49ers'Eric Reid and the San Diego Chargers' Tre Boston are among the safeties set to hit the open market. Brett Hundley, 24, is also under contract next season for the Packers. The Chiefs'Ron Parker, who'll reportedly be released, was in Kansas City during Dorsey's entire tenure there. The Patriots'Rex Burkhead and the Bengals'Jeremy Hill, both of whom played for Jackson as members of the Bengals, and the Patriots'Dion Lewis, who was with the Browns in 2013, are headed for free agency.

The Cleveland Browns are making moves at a rapid rate. The deal can not be made official until the first day of the NFL's new league year on Wednesday.
