Bills trade QB Tyrod Taylor to the Browns

Bills trade QB Tyrod Taylor to the Browns

The Dolphins could match that offer, and if Landry leaves, they would receive two first-round picks from his new team.

The Browns are sending two draft picks to Miami in exchange for Landry, per ESPN's Adam Schefter, who added that no first- or second-round picks were involved, and the Browns are expected to give Landry a multiyear contract. Teams like the Baltimore Ravens and Chicago Bears have been linked to a possible trade for Landry.

Cleveland have plenty of salary cap space to sign Landry to the big-money deal he would expect after catching a career-high 112 passes last season.

As Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel noted, that means Landry will make $15.982 million next year for either the Dolphins or any team he's traded to (unless he ultimately agrees to a long-term extension).

Taylor, 28, put up over 10,600 total yards with 65 total touchdowns and 16 interceptions in his three seasons with the Bills, earning a Pro Bowl appearance back in 2015. Acquiring Landry has likely changed those plans and the Browns can address a multitude of other needs.

The Browns are thought to be considering drafting a quarterback with one of their first-round picks. He also ran for 427 yards and four more scores.

With 12 picks in this year's draft, including the Nos.

Hue Jackson has handed his offense over to former Pittsburgh coordinator Todd Haley, who should know how to best use a player of Landry's skill after coaching Antonio Brown the past few seasons.

The Cleveland Browns found their young veteran quarterback Friday when they agreed to a trade with the Buffalo Bills for Tyrod Taylor.
