One would assume that this is part of the trade that sends CB Damarious Randall to the Browns. I’m sure we’ll have more details shortly, but I am fine with this move. Kizer has a lot of growing to do, and now he can sit patiently behind Aaron Rodgers. At the same time, I thought he handled himself well last year despite all of the losses.
UPDATE: Per Adam Schefter, as part of the trade, the Browns are giving up some position in swapping spots with the Packers in the fourth and fifth round.
