The Browns may have their new quarterback in tow for 2017 — one whose last team couldn’t wait to get rid of him.
According to ESPN, the Texans have traded quarterback disaster Brock Osweiler, a 2018 second-round pick and a 2017 sixth-round pick to Cleveland in exchange for the Browns’ fourth-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.
Osweiler had a miserable 2016 season, completing 59 percent of his passes for 2,957 yards and 15 touchdowns — to 16 interceptions. The Texans lost to the eventual Super Bowl champion Patriots in the AFC divisional round, a game in which Osweiler threw three interceptions.
The Browns, meanwhile, had a revolving door at the position in 2016 among Robert Griffin III, Josh McCown and Cody Kessler. Kessler, however, did complete 65.6 percent of his passes for 1,380 yards and six touchdowns to two interceptions.
The move saves $10 million in cap space (Osweilers has a base salary of $16 million) for the Texans in 2017, giving Houston $29.4 in cap space — a move that could have been made in order to save room for a potential trade for Dallas quarterback Tony Romo.
During a WBC media event at Yankee Stadium last week, a reporter from a publication based in the Dominican Republic expressed gratitude to MLB executives for baseball’s community efforts. It Cheap Goalie Jerseys was a small, but powerful, example of how MLB is impacting communities around the world through baseball.
When you look at past tournament winners, namely the Dominican squad that won in 2013, each team brought its own style to the dance. For some reason, U.S. baseball is lacking that extra gear, that X-factor that other teams exhibit on the field.
