The temptation to take Barkley is probably heightened by adding Taylor, but Cleveland would be wise to identify the quarterback it likes most in the draft class and ensure that he lands with the Browns.
The Chicago Bears spent their No. 2 draft pick on North Carolina's Mitch Trubisky last season.
I choose my words carefully here, because there are still so many variables that could send their house of cards tumbling, but the Browns are setting themselves up for potentially a very nice offense. But the financial war chest that Brown created, including a stable of draft picks that-even after Friday's deal-leaves them in command of the draft, is something that should not be forgotten. However, one move could put them back on the map in 2018. He traded the No. 34 overall pick and a conditional 2014 pick for former No. 1 pick Alex Smith. He also rushed for 427 yards and four TDs in 2017, leaving him with 1,711 yards since entering the National Football League in 2011.
One thing's for sure though, Dorsey isn't done trying to make a splash. He is also entering the final season of a seven-year contract worth $80.5 million contract and set to earn $13.5 million in 2018 after the Browns threw in a few bonuses.
Taylor is 22-21 as a starter, including 0-1 in the postseason after leading the Bills this past season to their first playoff appearance since 1999.
However, ESPN reported that the 10-time Pro Bowl selection said via email that his "decision will be based purely on my health".
Vikings have 'reached out' to Drew Brees' agent
He'd likely have an advocate in the Sheriff, and perhaps the Broncos are planning a sneak attack on Brees no one sees coming. As of noon on Monday, anyone can legally call Brees' agent Tom Condon and offer him $30 million a year to leave.
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. How flawless that their new franchise running back can help lead the celebration? Perriman has only 43 receptions for 576 yards and three touchdowns over three years.
"It will be nice in free agency when anybody we're going for doesn't ask me who our quarterback is going to be", Shanahan said at the combine. "I think he's a great fit". Now you can just focus on getting better at the position. The Buffalo Bills will receive a third-round pick when the Taylor trade becomes official on Wednesday, which means they will add to their significant draft capital - two picks in each of the first three rounds. Even from a tight end standpoint, names like Zach Miller, Tyler Eifert, Antonio Gates, and Jimmy Graham are available during free agency.
That draft pick is useful, yes.
As it turns out, the 25-year-old also has a new position.
