Report: DeShone Kizer heads to Packers in Damarious Randall trade

Report: Browns trade former Notre Dame quarterback DeShone Kizer to Packers

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 Green Bay Packers have traded for QB DeShone Kizer from the Cleveland Browns as part of the CB Damarious Randall deal according to NFL's Albert Breer.

Hundley, meanwhile, was a disappointment after Rodgers broke his collarbone October 15 at Minnesota.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy told reporters during the National Football League scouting combine that, "Brett Hundley wasn't ready for what he needed to be ready for".

"I believe in Brett Hundley. That's something that we have to learn from, and that stings".

After his benching this past season, Randall would finish the season on fire. Player reaction also included tons of eyes emojis.. He vowed to improve and come back a better player and person.

Kizer, who turned 22 in January, was the worst quarterback in the league past year, struggling with turnovers and situational football. "He needs to go home and self-evaluate and clean his own house".

Now, Green Bay is back where it was in 2015. He went in the second round to the Cleveland Browns, then had a nightmare rookie season.

Randall had 10 interceptions in his first threes season in Green Bay.

Those questions were answered not long after.

As long as Aaron Rodgers is healthy, Kizer won't see the field in Green Bay.

And that job will be made easier with the Browns' second addition of the day: Tyrod Taylor.

Gutekunst vowed at the combine to be aggressive, and having hosted ex-New York Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson earlier in the week and now moving a former first-rounder for a backup quarterback, Gutekunst has backed up those words with action. He can meet with and sign a contract to play for any team in the league.

"I think as my mentor and predecessor (Ted Thompson) would say, you have to be very cautious as you enter that".
