  • Browns to trade for Tyrod Taylor, Damarious Randall

Includes material from FBN-Packers-Browns Trade. The Packers sent cornerback Damarious Randall to the Browns for Kizer. The trades can't be formally announced until Wednesday, the start of the NFL's new year. Kizer himself retained the starting job in Cleveland for all but one game as a rookie previous year, tossing a league-leading 22 interceptions and completing only 54 percent of his passes.

CLEVELAND (AP) - After one hard season, the Browns threw DeShone Kizer away. The Packers hope to never use Kizer, because that means Rodgers stays healthy, but perhaps they can develop the upside that so many saw before last year's draft. "Unclear if picks are also involved", Rapoport tweets.

The Packers traded away cornerback Damarious Randall to the Cleveland Browns, in exchange for their second-round pick quarterback DeShone Kizer, according to National Football League reporter Ian Rapoport.

Tampa Bay's Mike Evans has agreed to a five-year, $82.5 million contract extension that makes him the second-highest paid receiver in the NFL.




Kizer showed flashes of potential and promise, but not enough and the Browns decided it was time to move on.

The Browns took the Packers to overtime in their meeting, and Kizer's potentially game-winning touchdown throw was foiled when linebacker Clay Matthews hit his arm as he was about to throw. In his first season with the Bills, Taylor completed 63.7 percent of his passes and threw for 3,035 yards and 20 touchdowns with just six interceptions.

Kizer was going to have to earn a spot with the Browns, and he'll be in a similar situation with the Packers, who were forced to start Brett Hundley nine games last season after Rodgers broke his collarbone.

A year ago, quarterback DeShone Kizer was a borderline first-round prospect.
