Titans were involved in trade talks for WR Jarvis Landry

Though Taylor passed for just 187 yards per game last season, he added 427 yards rushing and four touchdowns on the ground.

The large number of draft picks provides general manager Brandon Beane plenty of assets to use in trades in the event he elects to move up higher in the draft order.

"Y'all better understand (stuff) about to get SERIOUS". The trades come nearly a year to the day Cleveland's last regime made a "Moneyball" style trade for Brock Osweiler that might have indirectly paved the way for that franchise quarterback.

What Browns GM John Dorsey's collective Friday actions did reveal, however, in his trades for Taylor, Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry and Packers defensive back Damarious Randall, is that Dorsey is going to be decisive in identifying the players he wants and aggressive in pursuing them in his first year running the Browns.

NFL Insider Ian Rapoport and ESPN are among those quoting sources saying the Bills will acquire what would be the first pick of the third round, giving them five draft selections in the first 65 picks.

With three major trades on Friday, the Cleveland Browns let it be known that they intend to be taken seriously.

Landry was designated Miami's Franchise Player earlier this offseason meaning he was eligible to make more than $13 million next season. So the Browns could still take a quarterback at No. 1 if they really like one, or the No. 4 pick is also an option if they want to circle back to a signal-caller once the Giants and Indianapolis Colts make their picks.

Smith will earn $5 million this season so the move saves the Super Bowl champion Eagles much-needed space under the salary cap. "ON MY MAMA", Landry posted on Twitter shortly after news that he was Cleveland bound broke.

With three stunning trades on the eve of free agency, Cleveland landed a proven starting quarterback, a game-breaking, three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver and a shut-down cornerback.

Landry made $894,000 previous year, when he completed the contract he signed as a rookie. He has caught 74.5 percent of the passes thrown his way and dropped the ball only 21 times in his career, a drop rate of just 4.9 percent, which would have been a top-10 rank in 2017.

We can't know for sure until we see what happens in free agency with McCarron and in the draft. He set Bills records for yards rushing among quarterbacks in each of his first two seasons. That's second among National Football League receivers behind Antonio Brown's $17 million. The Dolphins will receive a fourth-round pick this year and a seventh-round pick in 2019.
