DeShone Kizer heading to Packers in Damarious Randall deal with Browns

Browns acquire CB Damarious Randall for QB De Shone Kizer as flurry of trades continues

The deal also includes the Packers and Browns flip-flopping their fourth- and -fifth-round picks, according to ESPN.

While most of Cleveland's earlier moves cost them draft picks, they traded Kizer in a deal with the Green Bay Packers.

The trade conversations surely were comfortable ones for Gutekunst, given that the Browns are now essentially Green Bay East with general manager John Dorsey and top personnel lieutenants Eliot Wolf and Alonzo Highsmith all being ex-Packers personnel staffers who worked with Gutekunst at 1265 Lombardi Avenue.

Acquiring Tyrod Taylor and Jarvis Landry in one day was not enough for the Cleveland Browns.

Cleveland selected the rifle-armed Kizer in the second round last year, and after a unusual training camp in which he passed both Cody Kessler and Brock Osweiler on the depth chart, the 22-year-old was named the Browns' starter by coach Hue Jackson.

As Schefter also noted, the Browns could still have plenty of moves on the way. He completed 53.6 percent of his passes for 2,894 yards, 11 touchdowns and 22 interceptions as a rookie.

Cleveland selected Kizer in the second round of the 2017 draft.

The Browns took the Packers to overtime in their meeting, and Kizer's potentially game-winning touchdown throw was foiled when linebacker Clay Matthews hit his arm as he was about to throw. He also ran for 18 touchdowns and just under 1000 yards in those two seasons.

However, Kizer rarely looked comfortable in the pocket, partly because teams were constantly blitzing him, and he was sacked 38 times.

As long as Aaron Rodgers is healthy, Kizer won't see the field in Green Bay. Just as he did at Notre Dame, Kizer had accuracy problems and after he threw nine picks in his first five games, Jackson benched him in favor of Kevin Hogan. He vowed to improve and come back a better player and person.
