The NFL is a conservative business. Rarely do teams take big risks, make big moves and see it pay off.

From time to time, you’ll see a team do something fans like to call “Madden-like” and make outlandish or even unrealistic moves that we are not accustomed to in the NFL.

Well, the Cleveland Browns are done with that.

They are also done hoarding picks and now are looking to cash in on the bounty they have.

It has started by the Browns making four trades today:

The final piece of the puzzle is the Browns trading away Deshone Kizer to the Green Bay Packers.

The Browns have completely revamped their roster without giving up a single pick of substance outside of the 65th pick in the trade for Tyrod Taylor.

Getting Jarvis Landry and adding Damarious Randall is adding to a team desperately in need of talent, surprisingly those are two players that would fit the Arizona Cardinals needs, but that was never going to happen.

No, the Browns are cashing in for proven talent without giving up much, this could be the start of a new era in Cleveland… or maybe not, it is Cleveland after all.
