The Cleveland Browns are making a great deal of moves on Friday night.
According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, the Cleveland Browns, just hours after trading for Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor, have traded away quarterback DeShone Kizer. Kizer, who was a rookie this past season, is headed to Green Bay.
The Browns also acquired a top wide receiver – Miami’s Jarvis Landry – earlier in the day.

Browns traded QB Deshone Kizer to Packers for CB Damarious Randall, per source. In addition; the teams’ swapped picks in the 4th and 5th round.

Kizer, in his rookie season, was the team’s starting quarterback most of the year. He threw for 2,894 yards and 11 touchdowns with 22 interceptions.
Obviously, Kizer will no longer be a starting quarterback. Last we checked, Green Bay still employs Aaron Rodgers.
Cleveland’s moves have many thinking that the Browns will take former Penn State quarterback Saquon Barkley with the No. 1 overall pick. Cleveland also has the No. 4 pick – so perhaps they could wait to draft a quarterback until then.
Stay tuned, Cleveland might not be done yet either.
