It's safe to say that the 2019 season hasn't unfolded the way the Cleveland Browns hoped it would. They're 1-2 on the season and winless at home so far.

In an effort to perhaps salvage the season, the Browns are looking to make a trade to bolster a struggling position.

According to NFL Network insider Mike Garafolo via Brent Sobleski, the Browns are contacting "multiple teams" about a possible trade for offensive line help.

The offensive line has pretty much been a mess for Cleveland this year. Their offense is ranked in the bottom half in the league in most categories due to the o-line's struggles.

Quarterback Baker Mayfield has been sacked 11 times - fourth most in the league. Running back Nick Chubb is averaging only 4.0 yards/carry after averaging over 5.0 yards/carry last year.

Ironically, the Browns traded one of their better offensive linemen, Kevin Zeitler, to the Giants this past offseason. He was one of the players packaged in exchange for Odell Beckham Jr. and Olivier Vernon.

Cleveland's 1-2 start includes a blowout loss at home to Tennessee, a less-than-convincing win over the hapless New York Jets, and a heartbreaking loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

If they don't beat division-rival Baltimore today, the Browns may find themselves in desperation mode soon.
