The Cleveland Browns were intent making headlines on Friday. ESPN's Adam Schefter noted the teams are also swapping fourth- and fifth-round draft picks. After dealing for Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry, they then went for a new signal caller in Tyrod Taylor.
Drafted 30th overall in 2015, Randall started 30 games with the Packers, recording at least three picks in every one of his seasons in Green Bay, although he finished previous year on Injured Reserve.
Hundley, meanwhile, was a keen disappointment with his play after Rodgers broke his collarbone October 15 at Minnesota. Kizer went 0-15 as a starter last season and led the National Football League with 22 interceptions.
The Toledo, Ohio, native completed 255 of 476 passes for 2,894 yards and 11 touchdowns. He vowed to improve and come back a better player and person. He finished the year as the Packers' leader in interceptions (four) and pass break-ups (13). If nothing else, the Packers could rehabilitate Kizer's career and trade him for a draft pick.More news: Amazon mulling checking-account like product with big banks
The good thing about Randall though is he doesn't handcuff the team to one position.
But he also sat out the final two games with a mysterious knee injury that led some to wonder if he could have played through the injury. He also rushed for 419 yards and five touchdowns, but lost six fumbles.
Kizer was going to have to earn a spot with the Browns, and he'll be in a similar situation with the Packers, who were forced to start Brett Hundley nine games last season after Rodgers broke his collarbone.
