Cleveland Browns: Why another trade with the Buffalo Bills isn't likely

Cleveland Browns: Why another trade with the Buffalo Bills isn't likely

The Browns also could use a defensive end, where former Williams pupil William Hayes is a familiar face, and a blocking tight end.

When it comes to quarterbacks, and drafts, no one defines putrid like the Browns.

"If the Bills trade the 21st, the 22nd, and their newly acquired 65th overall pick which is the first pick in the third round, that's enough for them to get up to the number or five pick in this years draft", said Sabuda.

Following weeks of what appeared to be radio silence this offseason, the Cleveland Browns were one of the busiest teams in the league on Friday as they agreed to multiple deals involving various draft picks and players.

Considering how thin the Green Bay Packers already were at cornerback, first-year general manager Brian Gutekunst must really be convinced he can upgrade the position through free agency and the draft - and must really feel the team needed more competition behind star quarterback Aaron Rodgers. I mean Darnold was fantastic this year and averaged almost 295 passing yards per game and threw for 26 touchdowns with a below average offensive line.

Cleveland's need for both a franchise quarterback and bridge quarterback seem to be receiving a great amount of Dorsey's attention, but Dorsey is aware that quarterback is not the only need that the Browns have. It doesn't matter which quarterback the Browns took, whether it be Darnold, Rosen, Allen, or Baker. In his seven-year career, Taylor has thrown just 18 interceptions and fumbled just 17 times. The Browns and Packers also swapped their 2018 fourth- and fifth-round picks as part of the deal as well, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

RB: Saquon Barkley, Duke Johnson Jr. In fact, I think that he is one of the best running back prospects we have seen in a while.

Dorsey now can build on these moves with all those picks in the first two rounds of the draft. 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. Do you want to be an average playoff team for 3 years or be a dynasty like the Patriots?

Overall, Penn State fans don't have to worry about arguably the most talented player in program history entering a disastrous scenario if he's picked No. 1 by Cleveland. He will not be inheriting that if he goes to Cleveland. Now that he is gone, the pursuit is even stronger for them to their answer at quarterback.

"I'll tell you what I told Damarious: He needs to focus on himself", McCarthy said after the season.

If the Los Angeles Rams' defense is as relentless in the upcoming season as the team's front office has been in reassembling it, the future could be bright.
