Packers trade CB Randall to Browns

Packers trade CB Randall to Browns

He went in the second round to the Cleveland Browns, then had a nightmare rookie season. The teams also swapped picks in the fourth and fifth rounds, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Cleveland traded its starting quarterback on Friday to the Green Bay Packers in exchange for cornerback Damarious Randall, a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press.

Kizer, who went 0-15 as a starter and led the National Football League with 22 interceptions during a straining rookie season, will compete for Green Bay's backup job behind star Aaron Rodgers.

Acquiring Tyrod Taylor and Jarvis Landry in one day was not enough for the Cleveland Browns.

DeShone Kizer was a second round pick for the Browns and started 15 games last season.

Clearly, the Packers weren't satisfied with the way Hundley performed last season after Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone.

The good thing about Randall though is he doesn't handcuff the team to one position.

The compensation for 2015 first-round pick Damarious Randall (hand) is a developmental quarterback, which is an apparent need after Brett Hundley was forced into action and more or less disappointed in 2017.

But he also sat out the final two games with a mysterious knee injury that led some to wonder if he could have played through the injury. 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. Veteran Davin House, who came back to Green Bay on a one-year deal last season, is a free agent.
