Browns acquire Tyrod Taylor in trade with Bills

Tyrod Taylor

The Cleveland Browns continue to reshape their roster via trades.

Hours after acquiring Jarvis Landry in a trade with the Miami Dolphins, the Browns acquired quarterback Tyrod Taylor from the Buffalo Bills. NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport says Cleveland is trading a third-round pick (No. 65 overall) to the Bills for Taylor.

Taylor was due a $6 million roster bonus, so that put some pressure on the Bills to move the quarterback. Cleveland will now be paying $16 million for a very competent QB who just took a team to the playoffs last season.

Taylor is set to be a free agent after the 2018 season and is unlikely to be the Browns’ long-term solution at the position, but he gives them their best quarterback in years.

Between Landry, Taylor, and the Nos. 1 and 4 picks in the draft, one of which they could use on running back Saquon Barkley, we will likely be looking at a revamped, much-improved Browns offense next season.
