Cam Erving has been traded to the Chiefs for a fifth-round draft pick, which means that there is a crazy amount of draft picks next year again.
Hasn't been said on the thread but DeShone Kizer has been chosen as a starter for the new season.
The same should happen with Osweiler should he be cut and be picked up by a new team. Whatever new contract he signs will be taken from what the browns have to pay.
Of course it doesn't matter a feck to Brock then and he could technically sign for the vet min for any team that will take him I guess.
They did well to get a 5th round back for Erving, never really developed as mack's replacement.
I expect Harding will have a decent season in Pittsburg.
In two minds on the Kizer. I would have liked for him to sit another while but its hard to say he has outperformed the other lads and still bench him. Jackson has also hung his coat on Kizer saying if he was worth his salt as a coach he'd make Kizer an NFL QB.
Really have a lot of optimism going into the season. I know they're nowhere near even challenging for the division or a wild card but if we can see the whole team play with the intensity Williams' defence has played with this off season it will be a good year (in terms of I'll look forward to watching the games every week).
