Packers to trade Damarious Randall to Browns for QB DeShone Kizer

Would Green Bay be willing to deal Hundley for a conditional 2019 pick? On top of that, Browns QB DeShone Kizer was sent to the Green Bay Packers in exchange for CB Damarious Randall, as well as pick swaps for fourth and fifth rounds.

With marquee cornerbacks on the market in free agency, a group that will soon include Richard Sherman, the Packers could be positioning themselves to be major players there.

After the Cleveland Browns acquired former Virginia Tech star Tyrod Taylor from the Buffalo Bills for draft picks on Friday evening, the conversation turned to DeShone Kizer and his future with the Browns franchise.

McCarthy steadfastly supported Brett Hundley who was forced to start nine games for the injured Aaron Rodgers last season. The team is also highly expected to take a rookie quarterback in the 2018 draft.

While no longer getting an opportunity to start may bum him out, the change of scenery should help his development as a professional quarterback. That leaves Kizer without a long-term role with the Browns, thus making him an expendable asset. He also played his best game against the Packers-another one of those dual-team connections-a game the Browns realistically should have won. The 25-year-old led the league in receptions last season and will look to turn around a substandard Cleveland offence.

"I believe in Brett Hundley".

The Arizona Cardinals now have no quarterbacks on the roster for 2018. His comments did not sit well with head coach Mike McCarthy.

The move 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. It's fine to be prepared, but starter-caliber corners don't grow on trees. With a wealth of draft picks and salary cap at their disposal, they have spent this Friday afternoon acquiring players via trade, although the trades can not officially be completed until next week. They could bundle those picks to move up, but that's hardly the selling point of the deal.
