The Cleveland Browns' busy Friday of trade acquisitions continued with the report first filed by ESPN's Adam Schefter that the team has dealt for Green Bay Packers CB Damarious Randall.
What we didn't expect from the trade was the following that was first reported by the NFL Network's Ian Rappoport:
Schefter added the following note:
Kizer, picked by the Browns in the 2nd round of the 2017 draft, was thrust into service faster than most expected. He started 15 games, completing 53.6 percent of his passes for 2,894 yards with 11 touchdowns against 22 interceptions. Kizer rushed for 419 yards with 5 touchdowns, but lost six fumbles.
The 25-year-old Randall fills a key spot in the Browns secondary at cornerback. He started 12 games for Green Bay in 2017, recording 47 tackles with 9 pass breakups. He also intercepted four passes, taking one back for a touchdown.
Injuries have kept Randall from playing an entire season in his three-year career. He started 9 games as a rookie in 2015, recording 58 tackles with 14 breakups to go with 3 interceptions and a touchdown. Randall again started just 9 games for Green Bay in 2016, but still managed to record 39 tackles with four breakups and 3 interceptions.
Randall was selected in the 1st round of the 2015 NFL Draft by the Packers with the 30th overall pick.
