Holy cow, where do we even begin??
Today alone, the Cleveland Browns’ front office has acquired a pair of Pro Bowl veterans to bolster its offensive aerial attack.
For a third-round pick, Cleveland added one-time Pro Bowl quarterback Tyrod Taylor, 28, from the Bills just about an hour after acquiring three-time Pro Bowl wideout Jarvis Landry, 25, from the Dolphins. Landry was acquired for two picks, neither of which were first or second-round picks, according to the ever-trustworthy NFL insider Adam Schefter.
And they didn’t even have to give up either of their first-round draft picks for the pair of vets.
I know the general public has been excited about Browns’ acquisitions that didn’t come to fruition in the past, but I think if you add a couple of rookies to this offense the Browns may actually win a couple of games in Hue Jackson’s third season at the helm.
If Tyrod Taylor has enough time before being pummeled by opposing defenses, he’ll have the opportunity to throw passes to a WR trio of Josh Gordon, Jarvis Landry and Corey Coleman. Although, of course, the Browns are still likely to draft a quarterback in the first round. We’ll likely see Taylor paired with a top five signal caller in this year’s draft class.
At this point, how could you not be excited to see what General Manager John Dorsey does in the draft come April?
