The Cleveland Browns are reportedly on the hunt for offensive line help. After watching quarterback Baker Mayfield run for his life for the first six weeks of the season, general manager John Dorsey is reportedly considering a major trade.

It's no secret the Browns have inquired about a potential Trent Williams trade with the Washington Redskins.

However, as the Redskins continue to turn down offers, the team has shifted its sights.

According to a report from NFL insider Jason La Confora, the Browns are now considering yet another trade with the New York Giants.

La Confora reported Cleveland is "interested" in offensive tackle Nate Solder.

Solder inked the largest deal for an offensive tackle in NFL history before the 2018 season. However, he's failed to live up to the lucrative deal, and the Giants could be falling out of favor with the former New England Patriots star.

If New York pulls the plug on Solder, the Browns are a fitting destination. Baker Mayfield has not looked comfortable in the pocket - mostly because there hasn't been a pocket.

On the other hand, New York wants to protect rookie quarterback Daniel Jones. Trading Solder takes a veteran presence off the offensive line - even with his recent struggles.

Stay tuned for the latest ahead of the NFL's trade deadline.
