The Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns have agreed to a trade this afternoon, with Cleveland hoping the move will help shore up its offensive line.

Buffalo sent second-year offensive lineman Wyatt Teller and a 2021 seventh-round pick to the Browns in exchange for a fifth-and sixth-round pick in 2020.

Teller was a fifth-round pick out of Virginia Tech last year. He started the final seven games of the season at left guard.

However, he worked with the second string this spring and summer, which made him expendable in a deal.

Browns beat writer Daryl Ruiter hinted earlier today that the team "wasn't satisfied" with its line play going into the season. This trade proves him accurate.

While Cleveland enters the season in an unfamiliar role of contender, the Browns' only glaring weakness is along the offensive line. The team has quality starters at left guard (Joel Bitonio) and center (JC Tretter) but the other three spots are question marks.

We'll have to see where Teller fits in the equation. He can obviously help somewhere on the interior but where is the question.
