Bills send Tyrod Taylor to Browns

Bills send Tyrod Taylor to Browns

The Cleveland Browns went nuts on Friday, making three huge trades that will have a major impact on the team for years.

In the second trade, Cleveland sent this past season's starting quarterback, raw rookie DeShone Kizer, to Green Bay for cornerback Demarious Randall, who in 30 career starts over three seasons has 10 interceptions.

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. It also means the Browns do not have to reach for a quarterback with one of their top five picks if they are not in love with the top options, although Taylor is scheduled to be a free agent after this season.

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. The Browns have two of the first four picks; they could take any player they want at No. 1 (a quarterback makes the most sense) and then trade the No. 4 pick to Buffalo. As for Buffalo, the writing had been on the wall for Taylor, but now the only quarterback they have under contract is Nathan "Five Pick" Peterman. The Dolphins will receive a fourth-round pick this year and a seventh-round pick in 2019.

Not only did the Bills get a quarterback-needy team in Cleveland to bite, but they also are expected to execute the deal shortly after the NFL's trading period opens Wednesday at 4 p.m., meaning the Browns will pay Taylor's $6 million roster bonus due next Friday.

Taylor, the Bills starter since 2015, compiled a 23-20 record in 43 starts.

Man Utd meet Barca star's agent ahead of potential £53m transfer
Indeed, according to Sport , Manchester United are weighing up a huge summer move for Umtiti by meeting his £54m release clause. Barcelona , however, are confident that Umtiti will sign a new deal with them.

In three years with the Bills, Taylor threw for 8,857 yards, 51 touchdowns, and 16 interceptions.

The Toledo, Ohio, native completed 255 of 476 passes for 2,894 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Landry, 25, signed the franchise tag last Thursday and is slated to earn $15.982 million this season unless the Browns work toward a long-term contract. He was by far the highest-profile Dolphins player eligible for free agency, and perhaps the best player on an offense that sputtered with quarterback Jay Cutler.

After this deal, the Bills will either focus on free agency and go after a veteran or find a rookie to take over the franchise.

That gives them even more draft capital to spend if they so choose to move up for a quarterback in Round 1.

In a related note, Taylor's arrival also shuts down any chance the Browns will waste time on head coach Hue Jackson's favorite quarterback, A.J. McCarron.
