Cleveland still owns the first and fourth overall pick in this year's draft.
While the Browns went 0-16 last season, the addition of Dorsey was a sign the team was finally heading in the right direction, and if the past few hours have been any indication, the Browns are going to be a fun team to watch next year.
ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported the Titans were among three other teams in talks with the Dolphins to execute a trade for the receiver. In a flurry reminiscent of the Cavaliers at last month's NBA's trade deadline, Dorsey didn't wait until free agency kicks off next week to become involved in some blockbuster moves. Trades can not be completed until then, but 10 deals have been agreed upon leaguewide this offseason.
But Taylor now fills that veteran role, and the Browns can use one of their two first-round picks to take a franchise quarterback to build around for the future.
Next Wednesday is the start of the new league year for the NFL, but the Cleveland Browns did their part to fill the transaction wire on Friday afternoon. The Bills will save a total of $10.44 million against their 2018 salary cap, instead of carrying Taylor's $18.08 million cap number.
"Y'all better understand s-- about to get SERIOUS".
The trade can not become official until the new league year begins on Wednesday. He spent his first four National Football League seasons serving as Joe Flacco's backup in Baltimore. He also averaged 28.5 yards per game on the ground, while also rushing for four touchdowns. But this is a think-big move from second-year general manager Brandon Beane and coach Sean McDermott, as they have their sights set on finding a quarterback who can bring greater success than what Taylor has provided.
Miami's passing attack in 2017 gave Landry a freakish stat line: 112 receptions to lead the league and break his own franchise record, but an average of 8.8 yards per catch to rank 110th.
This opens the door for real-run possibilities with those first two picks. The Browns are expected to attempt to work out a long-term deal with Landry. In response to the news of the trade, Gordon tweeted four trophy emojis. "Just throw it up", Arizona Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu tweeted. Worley, a third-round pick in 2016, started 25 games in the past two seasons for the Panthers. He vowed to improve and come back a better player and person. Not Miami's asking price, Landry's asking price.
