Cleveland Browns: Will free agency bring more excitement?

But Taylor will be a free agent after the season and that won't take the Browns out of the running for a quarterback at the top of the draft. If he plays every game the way he did against Gordon, this trade would be a steal.

Previously, the Cleveland Browns had the most cap space before making a flurry of moves over a two-day period last week. A rookie last season, Kizer was arguably the worst quarterback in the National Football League as he completed just 53% of his passes while throwing a whopping 22 interceptions. Landry gives the Browns another dimension in their offense. During the most recent episode of All-Pro Browns offensive tackle Joe Thomas' podcast, he had high praise for his new teammate comparing him to one of the top quarterbacks in the league. Instead, he put a target on his back by ripping the band-aid off entirely-something no previous regime had the guts to follow through on completely.

Randall was selected 30th overall by the Packers in 2015.

"Not long after Dorsey's trifecta, Thomas tweeted: "@Browns are en fuego! He also has experience playing safety. The dynamic Taylor, who finished with a 23-21 record in three seasons with Buffalo, can affect the game as a passer or runner and he's the type of quarterback Browns coach Hue Jackson has sought since coming to Cleveland. He threw 51 touchdown passes and only 16 interceptions those three seasons with a combined passer rating of 92.5. That Brown is not around to see it come together doesn't change the reality that Dorsey is following his plan. The last 6 quarterbacks taken with the number one pick are Jared Goff, Jameis Winston, Andrew Luck, Cam Newton, Sam Bradford, and Matthew Stafford. 5 of them have made the pro bowl at least one time and the only exception is Sam Bradford, who has been a solid starter when he is not injured.

In particular, the Jets' locker room has a tremendous amount of respect for Josh McCown, who could wind up back with the team if Cousins signs elsewhere. I think it makes it more attractive a little bit. Now you can just focus on getting better at the position.

The move acts as a bridge at the QB position for the Browns as they'll still look for a franchise QB in this year's draft, but Taylor will act as a serviceable arm for the 2018 season.

But Dorsey did not risk being rebuffed in free agency and winding up empty.

The Taylor trade also helps Buffalo's salary cap situation.

The Dolphins used their franchise tag on Landry last month, and he signed the one-year contract worth $15.982 million guaranteed on Thursday, paving the path for a trade.

The Rams now have nine draft picks in the April 26-28 draft, five in the sixth round.
