Reportedly, Hue Jackson wanted to get AJ McCarron, whom the team traded for past year before botching the transaction.
With the Cleveland Browns acquiring quarterback Tyrod Taylor from the Buffalo Bills this past Friday, there was plenty of excitement in Cleveland. Teams can begin making offers (legally) on March 12th, with deals able to be signed on the 14th. Thomas, who played more than 10,000 straight snaps before tearing his left triceps last season, is mulling retirement. He'll be looking for a big payday next winter if the Browns can't lock him up.
It has been so long since the Browns had a winning season. Here's to John Dorsey tonight! Trumaine Johnson, a player I hope the Browns target in free agency, was picked there.
Dorsey, again, knew this better than us, and maybe the Browns' front office figured it made more sense to pay Taylor $16 million, see how he fares as the bridge QB and think about a possible extension than it did to wait the Bills out and see what Taylor's asking price would be on the free-agent market.
Thomas seemed most pleased about the addition of Taylor at quarterback. The dynamic Taylor, who finished with a 23-21 record in three seasons with Buffalo, can affect the game as a passer or runner and he's the type of quarterback Browns coach Hue Jackson has sought since coming to Cleveland. "Ki-Jana Carter was the last back taken first overall", says Jim Keating, who is part of a Cleveland Browns' draft fan page on Facebook. The Notre Dame product went 0-15 as a starter with 11 touchdowns and 22 interceptions for the winless Browns.
Cleveland would be sensible to use this year to see how Landry fits into their offense and if he can provide any threat downfield or on the outside. He also rushed for 427 yards and four TDs in 2017, leaving him with 1,711 yards since entering the National Football League in 2011.
Taylor is good enough to get you to average (which probably sounds pretty awesome to a lot of you), and mediocre enough to drive a fickle fan base insane.
The trade for Talib, like three others the Rams have made since the end of the 2017 season, will not become official until Wednesday when the new National Football League year begins.
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. It would be a mistake to let Taylor be the reason the Browns got their second or third choice at the position instead of their first.
Updated via @FieldYates and me: Browns trade Danny Shelton and a 5th round pick in "18 for the Patriots" 3rd l-round pick in "19". But he's a dependable slot receiver who has caught 71 percent of the passes thrown to him in his career, according to ESPN Stats & Information research.
Tampa Bay also re-signed backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who appeared in six games last season.
In a Week 4 game against Chicago on September 28, Randall was benched for the second half for apparent insubordination and was later kicked off the sideline by McCarthy, who sent him to the locker room.
Cleveland's secondary was a mess last season after the club chose to waive veteran cornerback Joe Haden.
It also follows the blueprint laid out by Sashi Brown, who was sacked in December when Dorsey was hired. They may win four games this season.
