Browns Not Expected To Make Any Major Trades Before Deadline

Update:

Despite numerous reports and consistent speculation for weeks now, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Browns are not expected to make any major trades before today’s deadline.

———-

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Browns are “motivated sellers” ahead of the upcoming trade deadline and are willing to eat a portion of OLB Paul Kruger‘s contract to move him in a deal.

Kruger is among several Browns’ players reportedly on the trading block including LT Joe Thomas , OLB Barkevious Mingo, CB Justin Gilbert and possibly QB Johnny Manziel

Earlier in the day, Tony Grossi mentioned that Kruger could appeal to a contending team like the Cardinals.

Kruger, 29, is in the third year of his five-year, $40.5 million contract that included $20 million guaranteed. He stands to make base salaries of $7 million (2015), $6.5 million (2016), and $7 million (2017) over the remainder of the agreement.

This season, Kruger has appeared in eight games and recorded 15 tackles and a half sack for the Browns.

We’ll have more regarding a potential trade involving Kruger as the news is available.
