Packers trading Damarious Randall to Browns for QB

How else do you explain Gutekunst's first trade as GM Friday - an out-of-the-blue deal in which he shipped enigmatic cornerback Damarious Randall, the team's 2015 first-round pick, to the Cleveland Browns for quarterback DeShone Kizer, who'll compete for the No. 2 job behind Aaron Rodgers after Brett Hundley's disappointing 10-game audition last season?

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. Randall urged coaches to hold players more accountable for their mistakes. Just as he did at Notre Dame, Kizer had accuracy problems and after he threw nine picks in his first five games, Jackson benched him in favor of Kevin Hogan. His comments did not sit well with head coach Mike McCarthy.

After the season, when asked about Randall, McCarthy did not mince words. He played in 15 games as a rookie, passing for for 2,894 yards with 11 touchdowns and an bad 22 interceptions. But many of his interceptions caroms or were thrown directly to him by opposing quarterbacks.

The Browns are trading their third-round pick, No. 65 overall, to the Buffalo Bills for quarterback Tyrod Taylor, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The Browns haven't been known for savvy quarterback management in recent years. Veteran Davin House, who came back to Green Bay on a one-year deal last season, is a free agent.

Packers backup quarterback Brett Hundley ranked 30th in the league. Hundley was ill-prepared for the rigors of the National Football League regular season despite three years of development.

Hundley, meanwhile, was a keen disappointment with his play after Rodgers broke his collarbone October 15 at Minnesota.

Randall had 10 interceptions in his first threes season in Green Bay. They're sending 2017 second-round QB DeShone Kizer to Green Bay, and the two clubs will also swap fourth- and fifth-rounders, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
