Damarious Randall will play free safety for Cleveland Browns

The trades won't become official until the new league year begins March 14.

Two people familiar with the trade have told The Associated Press the Browns have agreed to acquire quarterback Tyrod Taylor from the Bills for a third-round draft pick. However, the Browns betrayed my trust and traded the 65th pick in the 2018 National Football League draft for Tyrod Taylor. Completing trades for QB Tyrod Taylor, Jarvis Landry, and Damarious Randall are all upward movers.

If Randall finds success similar to Hyde and Casey Hayward, who just received a contract extension from the San Diego Chargers after two-consecutive Pro Bowl seasons, it will most-certainly question the front office's ability to evaluate its own talent, especially in the secondary. We have seen that taking a quarterback with the 1st pick in the draft works, but the Browns refuse to see that. The 25-year-old then asked to be traded. Chances are good one of them will be in Cleveland with Taylor, and this skill position group.

Weems caught only one pass last season after signing with Tennessee and was third with 12 tackles on special teams. As NFL Network analyst Ian Rappaport stated shortly after the moves, the Browns aren't so amusing no more.

It was clear in his first season, he wasn't ready for the NFL. With Carson Wentz, sidelined in December and for the playoffs with a knee injury that required surgery, due back in August or September, the Eagles could be dealing from a position of great strength if they choose to part with Foles. That's what I look for him to do in the offseason.

Kizer started 15 games for the Browns as a rookie second-round pick from Notre Dame last season, throwing an NFL-high 22 interceptions and completing just 52 percent of his passes - but also showing promise and gaining valuable starting experience.

-The team that saved Adam Jones' career is apparently parting ways with the veteran cornerback.

John Lynch, Kyle Shanahan and Paraag Marathe have proven the value of trading back in the draft for more assets.

Landry signed a $16 million, one-year franchise tag Thursday with Miami, clearing the path for his trade. His relationship with Jackson is well-documented, and Pryor has expressed interest, via social media, in returning to Cleveland, where the former quarterback posted 1,007 receiving yards in 2016 before ankle and foot issues derailed his 2017 season in Washington.

Cassel, 35, spent the past two years with the Titans, and he started two of his six games played.

Salary-cap info provided by Over the Cap unless otherwise noted. NFL Network reports the Dolphins will receive a pick in 2018 and another in 2019.

Using the franchise designation to retain running back Le'Veon Bell all but evaporated any salary cap space the team will have for shopping the open market next week at the open of free agency.
