CLEVELAND (AP) - After one hard season, the Browns threw DeShone Kizer away. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Browns have agreed to send a mid-round draft pick to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for quarterback Tyrod Taylor. Entering the 2015 NFL Draft, he was the top-rated free safety prospect, but Green Bay chose to move him to cornerback where he's spent most of his career.
As Ian Rapoport of NFL Network makes mention on Twitter, the Pack move up in both the fourth and fifth round via the DeShone Kizer deal.
Not only was accuracy an issue, but turnovers also added to the Browns' problems. Rodgers returned to injured reserve after that game and Hundley started the last two weeks of the season, finishing the year having completed 192 of 316 passes (60.8 percent) for 1,836 yards with nine touchdowns, 12 interceptions and 29 sacks (70.6 passer rating).

They're expected to reconvene the following day for a special session on several other issues. That bill would likely be very similar to the budget submitted to the current session by Gov.
Kizer had 11 touchdowns.
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. Veteran Davin House, who came back to Green Bay on a one-year deal last season, is a free agent.
Kizer was stung by the demotion, but he regained Jackson's trust and won over his teammates by showing toughness and grit while trying to stop the Browns from joining the 2008 Detroit Lions as the only teams to go 0-16. For Kizer, it will be nice to get a fresh start.
