Browns ship Kizer to Packers

Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor throws a pass against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the first half of an NFL wild-card playoff football game Sunday Jan. 7 2018 in Jacksonville Fla

The Cleveland Browns made lots of moves on Friday that had fans and their own players excited and surprised. According to Ian Rapoport, the Browns have shipped last year's second-round pick DeShone Kizer to the Green Bay Packers. As a rookie, Kizer struggled badly in Cleveland.

The Green Bay Packers adding depth to the quarterback position Friday.

First in a day of absolute madness, both ESPN's Adam Schefter and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirmed that Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry will be traded to the Browns. The former Notre Dame quarterback started 15 games as a rookie with the Browns, but he apparently has been identified by new G.M. John Dorsey as a player who needed to go - possibly due in part to the 28 turnovers he generated a year ago.

It also meant there was just no way the Browns planned on allowing Kizer to be a starter for the team again.

In truth, Kizer's days appeared numbered in Cleveland as the team was expected to target a veteran in free agency - before getting Taylor, that is - and the Browns will likely use the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft on a QB.

Taylor, 28, threw for 2,799 yards, 14 touchdowns and 4 interceptions in 14 starts in 2017 and led the Bills to their first playoff appearance since 1999.

Obviously, Kizer will no longer be a starting quarterback. That leaves Kizer without a long-term role with the Browns, thus making him an expendable asset.

This couldn't be better news for Kizer.

If Green Bay signs Richard Sherman and Aaron Colvin and drafts Josh Jackson, maybe we will view this trade in a different light two months from now.
