Thrown away: AP source: Browns trade QB Kizer to Packers

Packers QB Brett Hundley could be available for Cardinals via trade Thrown away: AP source: Browns trade QB Kizer to Packers

Like the Rams, Cleveland will be finalizing four different trades on Wednesday at 4:00 p.m. ET.

The Browns trading spree continues.

On Friday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the Browns are sending second-year quarterback DeShone Kizer to the Green Bay Packers in exchange for cornerback Damarious Randall. Kizer, who was a rookie this past season, is headed to Green Bay. The Browns are going to likely draft with a quarterback with one of their first-round picks, so the move was inevitable. Meanwhile, Cleveland will send a third-round pick (No. 65 overall) to the Bills for Taylor. The teams also swapped picks in the fourth and fifth rounds, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. But he played poorly in 2016, when he missed six games following groin surgery, gave up 10 touchdown passes and had three interceptions. The Packers are getting a young backup quarterback to sit behind Aaron Rodgers, and one that should be an upgrade over Brett Hundley. But after that September dust-up, Randall played the rest of the season as Dom Capers' best cornerback in a secondary that was already razor-thin at the position. Kizer threw 22 interceptions as the starter for 15 games of the Browns' 0-16 season. That leaves Kizer without a long-term role with the Browns, thus making him an expendable asset.

Helicopter crashes into East River, trapping passengers
The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating the cause of the crash. Witnesses described seeing at least one person emerge from the helicopter and wave their hands for help.

The Toledo, Ohio, native completed 255 of 476 passes for 2,894 yards and 11 touchdowns.

He failed, but while he and the Browns slid toward ignominy, Kizer never complained, pointed fingers or made excuses. Given how well the Browns' front office knows Randall, its desire for a player it scouted and watched in person also makes sense. "Now whether that leads to us ending up signing a bunch (of players) or not, we'll see", Gutekunst said in Indianapolis. "It's the offseason and I just want to stay out of it".
