The Cleveland Browns are wheeling and dealing. After making the move to get him from the Buffalo Bills, Cleveland then chose to strengthen their defensive backfield by acquiring Green Bay Packers defensive back Damarious Randall in exchange for quarterback DeShone Kizer, which was reported by NFL Insider Ian Rapoport. And while the names usually stand out in the headlines, sometimes it's the under-the-radar move that makes all the difference in the world. Kizer probably needed a change of scenery after Browns coach Hue Jackson mishandled him last season.

After the Cleveland Browns acquired former Virginia Tech star Tyrod Taylor from the Buffalo Bills for draft picks on Friday evening, the conversation turned to DeShone Kizer and his future with the Browns franchise. He showed no improvement over the season, which was curious considering Jackson is an offensive-minded coach.

Cleveland traded its starting quarterback on Friday to the Green Bay Packers in exchange for cornerback Damarious Randall, a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press. Randall wasn't a bad return for a quarterback who wasn't in their plans anymore. That means the Packers will pick atop both of those rounds after the Browns went 0-16 last season.

Clearly, the Packers weren't satisfied with the way Hundley performed last season after Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone.

Hundley, a fifth-round pick in 2015, has one more season left on his rookie contract.

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.

Kizer will get the chance, elsewhere.
