Browns acquire WR Jarvis Landry from Miami Dolphins

Next Wednesday is the start of the new league year for the NFL, but the Cleveland Browns did their part to fill the transaction wire on Friday afternoon.

The Bills finished last season 29th in total yards and 31st in yards passing.

-The San Francisco 49ers will let the man that led the team in sacks last season, defensive end Elvis Dumervil, become a free agent next week.

TAMPA, Fla. - Tampa Bay's Mike Evans has agreed to a five-year, $82.5 million contract extension that makes him the second-highest paid receiver in the NFL. In the meantime, the Browns get a guy who can start right away at cornerback and has a history of making plays. The Dolphins could match that offer, and if Landry leaves, they would receive two first-round picks from his new team.

Fresh off dealing starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor to Cleveland for the first pick in the third round of April's draft, the Bills are reportedly set to trade up for a quarterback of their choosing during the annual event.




But if the Browns got the impression McCarron was leery to sign here knowing the Browns wanted to pick a quarterback at No. 1 or No. 4 next month, that's good because it means that is still the plan. 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.

Taylor's departure leaves the Bills with a significant hole at the position with Nathan Peterman - a fifth-round draft pick past year - the only quarterback left on their roster. "ON MY MAMA", Landry posted on Twitter shortly after news that he was Cleveland bound broke.

The Bills were preparing to release Taylor a year ago, before he agreed to restructure his contract by reducing it from a five-year to a two-year term. The team's top quarterback targets in free agency appear to be Kirk Cousins and Case Keenum. Before the trades, Cleveland was $113 million under the salary cap and the team figures to remain busy next week.

"I could be the browns QB with Flash (Gordon) & Juice (Landry) playing receiver!"

Taylor, 28, carries only one year of starter's money ($18 million cap hit, per overthecap.com) on his current contract, so he sets up as a flawless stop-gap for a more affordable rookie quarterback who can sit for a year and learn, or replace Taylor halfway through 2018 if he's ready. They freed up a ton of a cap space and received a solid draft pick in the process.
