Browns Acquire Quarterback Tyrod Taylor From Buffalo Bills In Exchange For 2018 Third-Round Pick

The Cleveland Browns have acquired quarterback Tyrod Taylor from the Buffalo Bills in exchange for a third-round pick, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports on Friday. The move comes shortly after Cleveland traded for Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry.

Taylor had his best year as a pro last season, throwing for 2,799 yards and 14 touchdowns to only four interceptions. With an 8-6 record as a starter for Buffalo, he will be known as the quarterback that ended the Bills’ playoff drought. Taylor played four seasons with the Baltimore Ravens and didn’t start a single game, serving as the backup to Joe Flacco as well as a trick-play specialist. When he landed in Buffalo, the job became his and he didn’t disappoint. The Virginia Tech product has thrown for 51 touchdowns overall to only sixteen interceptions and has completed over sixty-percent of his passes in four seasons with the Bills.

The deal is for the 65th pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, which leaves Cleveland still with their two first-round picks as well as all three second-round picks.
