Colts have potential new trade partner in Bills

The Cleveland Browns haven't been relevant in the National Football League playoff race since 2002, but general manager John Dorsey is making sure the team stays relevant in the headlines throughout the 2018 offseason.

But he didn't make as many big plays as the team hoped and Shelton played out of position last season when Cleveland switched from a 3-4 defensive scheme to a 4-3 front and he was no longer playing over the center.

Dumervil, 34, was set to receive a $500,000 roster bonus on Tuesday and would have carried a $4.25 million cap hit in 2018. The Browns will send a fourth-round selection this year as well as a seventh-round pick in 2019.

But the Browns still have a bunch of space to work with.

Taylor will start the 2018 season off as Cleveland's starting quarterback, and there's a good chance that he'll finish the year in that role, as well.

When an National Football League team goes 1-31 over the last two seasons and 0-16 in 2017, it isn't exactly going to have big-name free agents beating a bath to its door.

Cleveland will reportedly send quarterback DeShone Kizer to the Packers in the deal for Randall. In the deals, they acquired WR Jarvis Landry, QB Tyrod Taylor and CB Damarious Randall.

But he also sat out the final two games with a mysterious knee injury that led some to wonder if he could have played through the injury.

The Browns ended their slew of trades on Saturday with the New England Patriots.

Carolina has won six NCAA championships (1957, 1982, 1993, 2005, 2009, 2017) and made an NCAA-record 20 Final Four appearances. Those Maryland and Duke experiences confirm the magnitude not only of Virginia's feats but also the challenge ahead.

Here are the Bills' picks, including two in the first round after moving back in a deal with Kansas in the 2017 draft to take Patrick Mahomes. That's hardly a lot to trade for a player who immediately improves the receiver group. But in turn, don't expect Josh Gordon to have huge numbers with Taylor throwing the ball. However, taking a running back with the first pick is not a logical move.

Cleveland would be sensible to use this year to see how Landry fits into their offense and if he can provide any threat downfield or on the outside. While Gordon goes deep down field, Landry will take some attention away at the line of scrimmage.

For years the team has been on an endless vision quest to try and find their identity, beginning with finding a franchise quarterback.

This certainly lofty praise from Thomas in regards to Taylor given that Wilson has established himself as a top-tier player at his position.

The Baltimore Ravens enter free agency, which begins on March 14, with easily has the worst depth at wide receiver in the AFC North. Even if he is bridge quarterback, he is a solid option to carry the offense.

If they pick the NFL Combine-crushing Barkley at No. 1, they still would be guaranteed of a choice between at least two of USC's Sam Darnold, Wyoming's Josh Allen, UCLA's Josh Rosen and Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield at quarterback.

The next step for the Browns is to draft well.

It's still possible Cleveland could go with Barkley with the No. 1 pick, but the Browns shouldn't let the addition of Taylor sway them in either direction.

As a player who could, considering his history with Jackson, block the rookie passer all season, McCarron would only delay the Browns from finding out about their future. Why not? The Cleveland Browns have been in the cellar for so long.
