DeShone Kizer heading to Packers in Damarious Randall deal with Browns

Jarvis Landry

Quarterback Brett Hundley was Green Bay's fifth-round pick after the team traded up to pick No. 147.

Randall's tenure was up-and-down in Green Bay. But injuries robbed him of much of his 2016 season and it crushed his development. He played in 14 games with 12 starts at cornerback for the Packers last season.

Randall appeared to confirm that news. The new Browns are ready.

Kizer was the Browns' second round pick in the 2017 National Football League draft.

Some reports indicate that the Packers will now pursue Richard Sherman for the open cornerback spot.

In exchange, the Browns are getting cornerback Damarious Randall.

Randall should immediately step in opposite Jason McCourty and be a starting corner for a Browns passing defense that ranked 27th against the pass by DVOA according to Football Outsiders.

First in a day of absolute madness, both ESPN's Adam Schefter and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirmed that Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry will be traded to the Browns. That leaves Kizer without a long-term role with the Browns, thus making him an expendable asset. The Packers went 7-9 and missed the playoffs for the first time since 2008. However, his 22 interceptions led the league. In doing so, they might have just made Brett Hundley available for other teams. His comments did not sit well with head coach Mike McCarthy. He and Rodgers were the only quarterbacks on the roster before the Kizer trade.

The moves makes sense for both teams. The Packers hope to never use Kizer, because that means Rodgers stays healthy, but perhaps they can develop the upside that so many saw before last year's draft.

And go he will, increasing the likelihood that the Browns added a rookie (possibly with the first or fourth overall pick) to join a depth chart that now consists of Tyrod Taylor, Cody Kessler, and Kevin Hogan. They could bundle those picks to move up, but that's hardly the selling point of the deal. Veteran Davon House will become an unrestricted free agent next week.
