Late Tuesday night, a report suggested the Cleveland Browns were focused on landing an offensive tackle. according to a report from NFL insider Jason La Confora, the Browns set their sights on New York Giants offensive tackle Nate Solder.
Just a few hours later, Yahoo! Sports insider Charles Robinson confirmed Browns general manager John Dorsey is on the hunt for offensive line help.
Robinson reported the Browns reached out to three NFL teams about a potential trade.
All hail from the NFC East.
Multiple league sources have told Yahoo Sports that Dorsey has spent weeks reaching out to a swath of teams about acquiring offensive line help before the deadline — including three from the NFC East: the Washington Redskins, New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles.
Dorsey reportedly spoke with the Redskins on a potential trade for Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams.
Despite not playing for the Redskins this season, Washington president Bruce Allen has reportedly nixed all talks surrounding Williams. If Dorsey can’t land Williams, he would likely go after Solder or Eagles backup offensive lineman Halapoulivaati Vaitai, according to the report.
Cleveland desperately needs help on the offensive line and Dorsey looks hell-bent on making it happen.
Stay tuned for the latest trade rumors.
