Packers move up in 4th and 5th round via DeShone Kizer deal

CLEVELAND (AP) - After one hard season, the Browns threw DeShone Kizer away.

The move comes from an active Browns team on Friday, who acquired quarterback Tyrod Taylor and wide receiver Jarvis Landry, along with Randall, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

While most of Cleveland's earlier moves cost them draft picks, they traded Kizer in a deal with the Green Bay Packers. He's spent time at both free safety and cornerback for Green Bay and can help the Browns no matter which position they decide to play him at. Rodgers returned to injured reserve after that game and Hundley started the last two weeks of the season, finishing the year having completed 192 of 316 passes (60.8 percent) for 1,836 yards with nine touchdowns, 12 interceptions and 29 sacks (70.6 passer rating).

The Notre Dame product had a rough rookie season, as he found himself in and out of the lineup in what would be just the second 0-16 season in National Football League history.

The Browns took the Packers to overtime in their meeting, and Kizer's potentially game-winning touchdown throw was foiled when linebacker Clay Matthews hit his arm as he was about to throw.

Kizer was the No. 52 overall pick in the draft by Cleveland a year ago.

Houlihan Callahan on the Green Bay depth chart behind Aaron Rodgers. He threw for 47 touchdowns, just 19 interceptions and over 5,800 yards in two seasons with Notre Dame in 2015 and 2016. He vowed to improve and come back a better player and person.
