How Browns' trade for Tyrod Taylor will affect Giants on draft night

How Browns' trade for Tyrod Taylor will affect Giants on draft night

This trade has several effects on the market for quarterbacks, but the Arizona Cardinals were apparently a team interested in acquiring Taylor. The Cleveland Browns pulled off a trade for cornerback Damarious Randall from Green Bay in exchange for the rookie quarterback Deshone Kizer. Most impressively, he only threw 16 interceptions in the those three season, which will be a nice change of pace after watching Kizer throw 22 interceptions in just 15 games last season.

The people confirmed the agreement to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because under NFL rules, no trade can be completed until Wednesday, the start of the league's new year.

The Dolphins also add another draft pick (fourth rounder) they received from the Browns as a result of the Landry trade.

Cleveland is $113 million under the salary cap and was expected to seek an impact receiver in free agency. Now they get a better quarterback in Taylor for the lesser of those two picks.

It is a move that accomplishes several goals for the Bills, beginning with the No. 65 overall pick Buffalo acquired from Cleveland. That's huge. In three full seasons under center in Buffalo, Taylor would complete 62.6 percent of his passes with 51 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. It was clear the Bills did not view Taylor as their long-term answer at the position - especially after McDermott benched him in November - and clears the air in the quarterback room, instead of keeping Taylor for what likely would have been a lame-duck season.

Taylor finished with a 23-21 record in three seasons after signing with the Bills as a free agent in 2015. Landry has been selected to three consecutive Pro Bowls and has 400 receptions, an National Football League record for a fourth-year player.

Neither move can be made official until March 14.

The Browns probably view him as a safeguard, a temporary starter only if whichever phenom QB they select high in Round 1 doesn't immediately earn the starting job, as happened with Mitchell Trubisky (No. 2 overall) last year on the Chicago Bears, and with Jared Goff (No. 1 overall) two years ago on the Los Angeles Rams. They are strong candidates to trade up for one of the top quarterbacks in the draft.
