Osweiler Traded to Browns

Recommended Posts

Serious Question:

Are there any NFL teams needing a quarterback that could grab Mitch Trubisky before he falls to us at 6?

Aren't we about to get any QB we want?  Methinks so.

This is the full post from Schefter.

 

NFL stunner: Texans trade QB Brock Osweiler AND a 2018 second-round pick to Cleveland for the Browns to take Osweiler’s $16M salary of Houston’s books, per league sources. The move clears out millions in salary-cap space for Houston to intensify efforts to sign former Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, per sources. To be exact, Houston saves $16 million in cash and $10 million against their cap this season. The Texans also will get the Browns’ fourth-round pick this year in exchange for their own 6th-round pick. So Cleveland gets Osweiler’s contract, a 2018 second-round pick and a 2017 sixth-round pick, and Houston gets Cleveland’s 2017 fourth-round pick, saves $10 million in salary-cap space and $16 million in cash. Cleveland is not committed to keeping Osweiler and is likely to try to trade him, per sources. If so, it would turn into a basketball-like trade in which NBA teams routinely trade contracts to get them off their books; only it rarely, if ever, happens in the NFL. It’s hard to remember in the salary-cap era another team when a team traded a contract to get it off its books. But Houston was so anxious to rid itself of Osweiler and move on to its next quarterbacking chapter that it is giving Cleveland extra picks to take him and his contract. The Browns headed into this free-agent signing period with over $100 million worth of salary-cap space and would struggle to spend it all. Now they can devote some of it to Osweiler’s contract and acquiring extra draft picks from Houston. But this is one of the most, if not the most, creative trade in NFL history.

I don't think this move stops the Browns from drafting a QB. Just gives them a buffer. Also, why in the world would the Jets want Trubisky?

Just read the browns may move osweiler.  They have too much space and can't spend it all.  They get houstons picks, have some of  osweiler's contract on their books for the season and are looking to to trade him for more picks???

I know nothing of the draft, I don't watch college football, so I trust your judgement over mine.

But if I look at the 5 teams picking ahead of us, don't they now all have legit starting QB's and therefore won't the Jets be sitting with the pick of the litter at #6?

Yowzer. That's a great trade for Cleveland and actually a pretty good trade for Houston to unload that contract. At least they are smart enough to acknowledge a mistake. 

if it was a mistake then how is it great for Cleveland? He still sucks

I think this indicates the Texans will go after Romo...

I would say you are probably correct.

I don't watch college football, I have no idea.

However, if the rumors are true and Maccagnan loves Mitch Trubisky and he can start immediately that allows us to do that.

They will, but there isn't really any sure fire QBs to take this year.
