Dorsey understands that since the Browns can't point to anything tangible on the field from the last two years, they needed to generate buzz and create some momentum before the free agency period begins at 4 p.m. Wednesday. It wouldn't be shocking, either, if the Browns were to draft two quarterbacks, one in the first round and another later, a la Washington in 2012. Sam Darnold is the leader on the backstretch to be the top pick, with Josh Allen a length behind. The move makes it more likely that Penn State running back Saquon Barkley is the No. 1 selection of the 2018 NFL Draft. They also got Green Bay's fourth-round and fifth-round picks in the swap.
Should fortunes finally turn for the Browns, he can not be written out of the story. That's a serious addition of talent to a winless team.
"Not long after Dorsey's trifecta, Thomas tweeted: "@Browns are en fuego!
Randall started 30 games in three years for the Packers, who drafted him with the No. 30 overall pick in 2015.
Free agency is next and with all that cap space, Dorsey really gets to spend Browns owner Jimmy Haslam's money. They want to move up in the 2018 draft to select their franchise guy. He's careful with the ball, but the criticism of him is he can be too careful and overemphasize the checkdown.
How does this impact their plans for the upcoming draft, roughly seven weeks away? I am angry at the fact that the Browns would not choose a quarterback in one of the best quarterback classes in the last 5 years. And he's also 25, which would put him in his prime.More news: Raiders to release cornerback Sean Smith, who's reportedly headed to jail

In addition to acquiring three quality starters without giving up much, Cleveland now holds the first- and fourth-overall picks in April's draft plus three second-rounders. That's hardly a lot to trade for a player who immediately improves the receiver group.
Landry led the National Football League with 112 receptions and finished with a career-high nine touchdowns and 987 yards.
"(Sashi Brown) is very smart, very organized, good at systems and processes and an outstanding team player", Haslam said that night.
Worley had three interceptions and 19 pass breakups with the Panthers.
Cousins, who has 81 touchdown passes and a 97.5 passer rating over the last three years, can provide it.
In a vacuum, that makes sense. The Browns are expected to attempt to work out a long-term deal with Landry. The deal includes $55 million guaranteed and runs through 2023.
