The Panthers have agreed to trade for Eagles veteran wideout Torrey Smith in exchange for third-year cornerback Daryl Worley, according to a league source who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the trade is not yet official.

With the moves the Browns made Friday, acquiring Jarvis Landry and Tyrod Taylor, the Jets moved past Cleveland to the top of the heap in salary-cap space. That's how Friday's flurry of action kicked off. The two teams will also swap fourth and fifth-round selections.

Cleveland's need for both a franchise quarterback and bridge quarterback seem to be receiving a great amount of Dorsey's attention, but Dorsey is aware that quarterback is not the only need that the Browns have.

"You grow up as a little kid dreaming of playing in the NFL", Barkley said.

But the Browns still have a bunch of space to work with.

Kizer was picked in the second round by the Browns last season but had a disastrous first season. Taylor finished with 2,799 passing yards on a 62.6 percent completion rate with 14 touchdowns to four interceptions while recording 427 rushing yards with four touchdowns in 15 games played. Taylor never had an arsenal like this in Buffalo so imagine what he will do with actual weapons?

How will this affect the Browns' free agency plans? He took a $10 million dollar pay cut to stay with the team last season.

Still, given the Raiders' subpar cornerbacks group, Smith was probably the best one among them the second half of the season. The Raiders rumors surrounding the future of cornerback Sean Smith and the Oakland Raiders has been cloudy this offseason.

Dorsey understands that since the Browns can't point to anything tangible on the field from the last two years, they needed to generate buzz and create some momentum before the free agency period begins at 4 p.m. Wednesday. Chances are good one of them will be in Cleveland with Taylor, and this skill position group.

While we won't know who truly "won" this trade until a couple of years from now, the Bills likely won't end up regretting their decision to move Taylor.

Now, however, it appears the Browns aren't set on one particular passer among the draft's top five quarterbacks, though they're still looking to select a franchise quarterback this year.

Cousins might not be the game's best QB, but adding him could make the Vikings the new favorite to win it all in 2018.

No matter what you think about the idea of taking a running back No. 1 overall, the Browns still need to add a young quarterback.

But suddenly, the Browns have the look and a real football GM running the show in Dorsey that is going all out in getting real football players, instead of betting on analytics and numbers.

The team previous year traded back one spot from pick No. 2 to 3 for a package that included multiple third round picks, which ultimately gave them the capital to trade back into Round 1 for Reuben Foster.
