Packers Aquire QB In Trade With Cleveland

Share

The Cleveland Browns made lots of moves on Friday that had fans and their own players excited and surprised. Kizer was selected in the second round of the 2017 draft by the Browns and immediately became the starter there. Ian Rapoport of NFL.com says the Packers are getting in return DeShone Kizer.

Throw in the fact former Seattle Seahawk Richard Sherman has been cut loose, the veteran Pro Bowler might be attractive to Gutekunst.

NFL Network reported both sides are open to Sherman returning under a new contract if he can not find the right deal in free agency. Last year's third-string quarterback, Joe Callahan, is an exclusive-rights free agent. He has 105.5 career sacks in his 11 National Football League seasons.

The Packers were reportedly interested in Kizer before the draft, which makes this trade all the more intuitive for them.

Since guiding the Philadelphia Eagles to the franchise's first Lombardi Trophy in February, Foles' name has been a popular one in the National Football League rumor mill. As for the Browns, they are still in tremendous position.

"I don't want to talk about anything", said Foles, via USA Today Sports. That's what I look for him to do in the offseason. He is due to earn $10 million in 2018 in the final year of his contract but could be re-signed as a backup in 2019. The deal was renegotiated to a two-year, $30.5 million deal.

Kizer had 11 touchdowns. He has good physical traits and is only 24 years old.

After promising rookie seasons in 2015, both Randall and Rollins dealt with a litany of nagging injuries, poor play, and attitude problems with Randall. He finished the year as the Packers' leader in interceptions (four) and pass break-ups (13). The Packers ranked 24th in yards allowed last season, surrendering 4,401 total passing yards as a team. His first game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers was not the debut he was hoping for.

Using the franchise designation to retain running back Le'Veon Bell all but evaporated any salary cap space the team will have for shopping the open market next week at the open of free agency.
