National Football League notebook: Packers trade Randall to Browns for QB Kizer

The 25-year-old led the league in receptions last season and will look to turn around a substandard Cleveland offence. Yet, his ability to be a ballhawk didn't cover up his weaknesses on the field and his attitude that did not sit well in the locker room.

His departure might signal an even bigger shakeup of the secondary for new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine. Veteran Davon House will become an unrestricted free agent next week. Landry and Josh Gordon will make a potent wide receiver duo. Releasing Sherman, who spent seven seasons with the team, saves the team $11 million against the 2018 salary cap. Several Packer players, like David Bahktiari, even reached out to Sherman via Twitter.

The Packers needed to find a better backup after last season's debacle.

Miami will reportedly receive two draft picks - a fourth-rounder in the 2018 draft and a seventh-round pick in 2019 - for Landry, the first player to catch 400 passes over his first four National Football League seasons.

His final numbers for 2018: 192 completions in 316 attempts (60.5%). He also ran for 18 touchdowns and just under 1000 yards in those two seasons.

Randall snagged a career-high four interceptions in 2017, though some were a case of being in the right place when the ball was tipped.

Kizer will get the chance, elsewhere. The former Notre Dame quarterback started 15 games as a rookie with the Browns, but he apparently has been identified by new G.M. John Dorsey as a player who needed to go - possibly due in part to the 28 turnovers he generated previous year. His passer rating was 53.6.

Just onne player leaving and another arriving opens up an terrible lot of questions on both sides of the ball as the 2018 off-season is about to kick into high gear. Kizer did display a knack with his mobility, rushing 77 times for 419 yards and 5 touchdowns.

After promising rookie seasons in 2015, both Randall and Rollins dealt with a litany of nagging injuries, poor play, and attitude problems with Randall.
