Browns ship Kizer to Packers

Packers land De Shone Kizer from Browns but what about Brett Hundley

Packers land De Shone Kizer from Browns but what about Brett Hundley

Two months after an agonizing 0-16 season mercifully ended, new general manager John Dorsey addressed three major needs on the eve of free agency by acquiring mobile quarterback Tyrod Taylor in a deal with Buffalo, wide receiver Jarvis Landry from Miami and cornerback Damarious Randall from Green Bay, a person with direct knowledge of the overhaul told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Hue Jackson has handed his offense over to former Pittsburgh coordinator Todd Haley, who should know how to best use a player of Landry's skill after coaching Antonio Brown the past few seasons. However, because of the Kizer trade, Hundley is just another possibility the Cardinals have. Kizer left Notre Dame after his redshirt sophomore season and didn't win a game for the winless 2017 Browns as a starter.

ESPN's Adam Schefter was first to report that the Packers are trading cornerback Damarious Randall to the Browns.

In one trade, the Green Bay Packers made two intentions clear: Brett Hundley won't be handed the backup quarterback job again, and they're serious about overhauling their defense. 1 and 4 overall and five in the first 64, the Browns had the ability to pull off a major deal for a major player.

With forwards like Wenceslas Lauret and Yacouba Camara, who are experts in the back row, Les Bleus will bring a lot of dynamism to open play.

There was strong sentiment in the locker room at that time to give Randall the boot - sources said McCarthy's committee of veteran players suggested that Randall be released - but the Packers stood by him. He led the National Football League with 22 interceptions while completing just 53.6 percent of his passes. He threw four interceptions. Then, Randall was critical of defensive coordinator Dom Capers, who was sacked after the season.

Kizer's arrival likely means Brett Hundley is on his way out. "He's got to clean his own house". We all understand what happened in the Chicago game, but I thought from the Chicago game on, he played at a very high level.

Hundley, drafted by Green Bay in the fifth round in 2015, is entering the fourth and final year of his rookie contract. Unclear if picks are also involved.

The Browns were expected to target a quarterback in free agency but instead have landed the dynamic Taylor, who will likely take over as Cleveland starter.
