The NFL Off-season is just getting started, and there have already been a decent amount of moves made around the league. However, new Browns general manager John Dorsey is making an early bid to be NFL Executive of the Year. What a whirlwind of wheeling and dealing his team has done.

Landry, a second-round pick in 2014, has averaged 100 catches per season since entering the league. This past season, he led the league in receptions with 112 despite playing on an anemic Dolphins offense. He finished with the 17th-most receiving yards (987), which means he averaged only 8.8 yards per catch. In his career, he’s averaging 10.1 yards per catch.
Landry should fit in alongside Josh Gordon and Corey Coleman. With Landry coming to town — and— the Browns’ offense is certainly more intriguing than it has been in a while.
Taylor returns to the AFC North
Gone are the days when the Browns’ offense looked pathetic. This looks like an offense that can win some actual regular-season football games:
#Browns Updated Skill-Position Corps:
QB Tyrod Taylor
RB Duke Johnson
WR Josh Gordon
WR Jarvis Landry
WR Corey Coleman
TE David Njoku

In another trade, the Browns moved Deshone Kizer to the Packers for Cornerback Damarious Randall. Cleveland will be making more moves as they still have the second most cap room in the league.
The Browns own the first- and fourth-overall picks in this year’s draft, which means they have the potential to add, say, running back Saquon Barkley, and you can start to see the makings of an offense that can be dangerous. At the very least, it’s an offense that can help the Browns win more than zero games this coming season.
