In truth, Kizer's days appeared numbered in Cleveland as the team was expected to target a veteran in free agency - before getting Taylor, that is - and the Browns will likely use the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft on a QB.
The embattled corner Randall had 4 interceptions last season (3 came in 3 consecutive weeks), but was also a headache for coach Mike McCarthy and the Packers staff. He can meet with and sign a contract to play for any team in the league.
-Nick Foles hears numerous swirling offseason trade rumors, but the Super Bowl LII Most Valuable Player prefers not to talk about them. With Carson Wentz, sidelined in December and for the playoffs with a knee injury that required surgery, due back in August or September, the Eagles could be dealing from a position of great strength if they choose to part with Foles. He also ran for 18 touchdowns and just under 1000 yards in those two seasons.
The Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to trade wide receiver Torrey Smith to the Carolina Panthers for cornerback Daryl Worley, according to two people familiar with the deal.
Smith will earn $5 million this season so the move saves the Super Bowl champion Eagles much-needed space under the salary cap.
Kizer has three years left on his rookie deal. Just as he did at Notre Dame, Kizer had accuracy problems and after he threw nine picks in his first five games, Jackson benched him in favor of Kevin Hogan. Worley, 23, had two interceptions last season and three in his two-year career.
McDonough had been calling the Monday night National Football League game the past two seasons, paired with Jon Gruden. The team will also take on Kizer's base salary in 2018 of $689,928, bringing the final cap relief to $824,490.
