Ian Rapoport of NFL Media said Tuesday that it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Browns make some other players from the prior regime available for trade in the coming weeks.
“Remember, this was a regime with John Dorsey, the general manager, a lot of their players were kind of up on the trading block, a lot of the previous regime’s players — some disappointing players, frankly — were available for trade,” Rapoport said.
“This is not the last time,” Rapoport added, “we’re going to see a potential former big-name Brown shipped to someone else for draft compensation.”
This comes shortly after the team made the decision to trade former first-round WR Corey Coleman to the Bills for a 2020 seventh-round pick.
Nassib, 25, is a former third-round pick of the browns back in 2016. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $3.59 million contract and set to make base salaries of $773,000 and $868,000 over the next two years of the agreement.
In 2017, Nassib appeared in all 16 games for the Browns and recorded 32 tackles, three sacks, and five pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 71 edge rusher out of 108 qualifying players.
Coleman, 26, is a former third-round pick of the Browns back in 2016. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $3.27 million contract and stands to make base salaries of $658,000 and $755,280 over the next two years.
