Colts have potential new trade partner in Bills

The Browns aren't fooling around.

After 16 straight losses on the field, victory.

With Taylor on his way to Cleveland, a person familiar with another deal says the Browns will send DeShone Kizer to the Packers for cornerback Damarious Randall.

They could also unload their No. 4 pick for an NFL-proven talent. They moved ahead of the Cleveland Browns, who added two big contracts during their pre-free agency trading spree - Tyrod Taylor ($16 million) and Jarvis Landry ($16 million).

The team informed Sherman early Friday he would be released, and he confirmed the decision in a text message to The Associated Press.

The Browns gave him more to think about.

Dorsey likely won't hit that kind of jackpot with Taylor like he did Smith, but what he should find is stability, something that the Browns sorely need. Here's to John Dorsey tonight!

It was assumed the Browns would target Cincinnati's AJ McCarron, whom they tried to land in a trade last season before the deal was squelched when the teams failed to properly file paperwork to the league. He experienced much of those struggles in 2017 despite helping lead the Bills to their first playoff appearance in almost two decades. Taylor isn't winning you any playoff games, but there are quarterbacks in this draft who will.

This trade has several effects on the market for quarterbacks, but the Arizona Cardinals were apparently a team interested in acquiring Taylor.

Kizer appeared overmatched during his rookie season, completing 53.6 percent of his passes for 2,894 yards with 11 touchdowns and a league-high 22 interceptions.

If Buffalo really wants to get a quarterback, they are going to have to trade up in round one to select him.

Brown did not have such experienced personnel people to advise him the last two years. He also ran for 427 yards and four more scores.

As the deal began being reported, Landry made a post on Twitter that indicated things were "about to get SERIOUS". "ON MY MAMA", Landry tweeted.

How will this affect the Browns' free agency plans?

Per the contract website, the Browns will use about $32 million in salary-cap space as a result of their recent trades and enter free agency with $77.8 million in room. The player the Browns drafted that made Danny Shelton expendable, Larry Ogunjobi, was picked at No. 65, after all. Taylor has started at least 14 games each of the last three seasons and threw for 2,799 yards, 14 touchdowns and four interceptions past year. Later, they traded a third-rounder to New Orleans for a 2018 second-rounder, which allowed them to move their own second-round pick for Jimmy Garoppolo. He was benched in the second half of a September 28 game against Chicago by coach Mike McCarthy, who sent him to the locker room.
