Packers trade cornerback Damarious Randall to Browns for quarterback DeShone Kizer

Multiple sources are reporting that the Green Bay Packers are trading cornerback Damarious Randall to the Cleveland Browns for second year quarterback DeShone Kizer.

Considering how thin the Green Bay Packers already were at cornerback, first-year general manager Brian Gutekunst must really be convinced he can upgrade the position through free agency and the draft - and must really feel the team needed more competition behind star quarterback Aaron Rodgers. He's the compensation to Green Bay for the trade that will send cornerback Damarious Randall to Cleveland.

The move comes from an active Browns team on Friday, who acquired quarterback Tyrod Taylor and wide receiver Jarvis Landry, along with Randall, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Kizer was chosen 52nd overall in the 2017 National Football League draft by the Browns. He completed 53.6 percent of his passes for 2,894 yards, 11 touchdowns and 22 interceptions as a rookie.

Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein said that he strongly suspected that "acts of genocide" may have taken place against Muslim Rohingyas in Myanmar's northern Rakhine state since August.

Evans caught 71 passes for 1,001 yards and five touchdowns in 2017.

Packers backup quarterback Brett Hundley ranked 30th in the league. Brett Hundley failed to impress during his nine starts last season, so Kizer could be an upgrade with the right development. "He has a big upside". 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). "It's the offseason and I just want to stay out of it".

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. "Now whether that leads to us ending up signing a bunch (of players) or not, we'll see", Gutekunst said in Indianapolis.
