CLEVELAND (AP)Maybe the losing and laughing Antworten

will finally stop. The Browns aren’t fooling around.With three stunning trades on the eve of free agency White Corey Bojorquez Jerseys , Cleveland landed a proven starting quarterback, a game-breaking, three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver and a shut-down cornerback.After 16 straight losses on the field, victory.Two months after a winless season mercifully ended, new general manager John Dorsey addressed major roster needs Friday by acquiring mobile quarterback Tyrod Taylor in a deal with Buffalo, wide receiver Jarvis Landry from Miami and cornerback Damarious Randall from Green Bay, a person with direct knowledge of the overhaul told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.Teams are not permitted to announce any trades until next week.In exchange, the Browns shipped quarterback DeShone Kizer and swapped late-round picks with the Packers, gave the Dolphins a fourth-round pick this season and a seventh rounder in 2019 and sent the Bills the No. 65 overall pick in this year’s draft.All in a day’s work for Dorsey, who brought in major talent without giving up any of the team’s five picks in the first two rounds this year.And the makeover came as the team awaits word from Pro Bowl left tackle Joe Thomas on his future. Thomas, who played more than 10,000 straight snaps before tearing his left triceps last season, is mulling retirement.The Browns gave him more to think about.Not long after Dorsey’s trifecta, Thomas tweeted: ”(at)Browns are en fuego!! Here’s to John Dorsey tonight!!The acquisition of Taylor would seem to change Cleveland’s plans to pursue a veteran quarterback in free agency Corey Bojorquez Jerseys 2019 , which begins Monday when teams are permitted to contact agents. It was assumed the Browns would target Cincinnati’s AJ McCarron, whom they tried to land in a trade last season before the deal was squelched when the teams failed to properly file paperwork to the league.McCarron wants to start and it’s unlikely he would want to compete with Taylor, who led the Bills to their first postseason appearance since 1999. The dynamic Taylor, who finished with a 23-21 record in three seasons with Buffalo, can affect the game as a passer or runner and he’s the type of quarterback Browns coach Hue Jackson has sought since coming to Cleveland.However, even with Taylor around, the Browns are still expected to select a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft and Dorsey and his staff are in the process of deciding if that’s Southern Cal’s Sam Darnold, UCLA’s Josh Rosen, Wyoming’s Josh Allen or Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield, the Heisman Trophy winner who scares some Cleveland fans because of his Johnny Manziel-like showmanship.Cleveland’s next starting quarterback will be the team’s 29th since 1999.But unlike Kizer, who led the NFL with 22 interceptions, went 0-15 and went through numerous growing pains as a rookie starter, Taylor will have offensive weapons around him.Landry is as good as they get.The 25-year-old, who caught a league-best 112 passes last season White Marcus Murphy Jerseys , immediately upgrades a Cleveland offense that finished last in scoring and didn’t have any player who threatened a defense until wide receiver Josh Gordon made his late return from an indefinite NFL suspension. With Gordon on the outside, Landry in the slot and Taylor behind center, the Browns have the makings of a potent attack.Landry signed a $16 million, one-year franchise tag Thursday with Miami, clearing the path for his trade. The Dolphins began shopping him when the parties were unable to reach an agreement on a long-term contract, which he’s likely to get from the Browns.A big contract could help calm the sometimes volatile Landry, whose 400 receptions are the most by any player in his first four seasons.”Y’all better understand (stuff) about to get SERIOUS… ON MY MAMA,” Landry posted on Twitter shortly after news that he was Cleveland bound broke.The additions of Taylor and Landry certainly must have thrilled new Browns offensive coordinator Todd Haley, who was fired in Pittsburgh following the Steelers‘ divisional-round playoff loss. Haley spent the past six seasons working with Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell. All Cleveland needs is a breakaway running back and the Browns could get one with the No. 4 overall pick if Penn State’s Saquon Barkley is still around.Dorsey also took care of defensive coordinator Gregg Williams by acquiring Randall, a former first-round pick who was inactive for the Packers’ final two games last season with a knee injury.Randall started 30 games in three years for the Packers, who drafted him with the No. 30 overall pick in 2015. He had some injuries issues – and a visible spat with the team – in 2017, but finished the year as Green Bay’s best cover cornerback. He was benched in the second half of a Sept. 28 game against Chicago by coach Mike McCarthy, who sent him to the locker room.Cleveland’s secondary was a mess last season after the club decided to waive veteran cornerback Joe Haden.Dorsey’s remodeling of the Browns is far from finished. Before the trades Marcus Murphy Jerseys 2019 , Cleveland was $113 million under the salary cap and the team figures to remain busy next week.But after an historic losing season, the wins don’t feel as far away.— MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Jordan Phillips‘ eagerness to get the last word backfired on the Buffalo Bills.The animated defensive tackle drew a costly penalty for taunting his former team, setting up a touchdown with nine minutes left that helped the Miami Dolphins rally past Buffalo 21-17 on Sunday.Miami turned away two Bills drives down the stretch, and Charles Clay made a diving try but failed to catch Josh Allen’s desperation fourth-down pass at the goal line in the final minute.Article continues below ...“This one hurts a lot,” Allen said.The rookie quarterback threw for 231 yards and ran for 135 to set a franchise record for rushing yards by a quarterback for the second week in a row. Miami won despite being outgained 415-175.“It beats the heck out of the alternative,” said Miami’s Ryan Tannehill, who threw three touchdown passes .The Dolphins (6-6) snapped a two-game losing streak and won for only the third time since Week 3, helping their slim playoff chances. The Bills (4-8) will play their customary role of spoilers in the final weeks, assured of finishing at .500 or worse for the 16th time in the past 19 years.Phillips had said he was eager to settle old scores with the Dolphins after they released him in Week 5, and Miami was trying to rally from a three-point deficit when he tackled Kenyan Drake for a 4-yard loss deep in Bills territory.Phillips rose, pushed Drake’s leg away and drew a 15-yard penalty for taunting.When asked to describe the call, Phillips said, “Borderline is very generous. … I hit someone’s foot White Ryan Groy Jerseys , and that’s an unsportsmanlike conduct? OK.”Bills coach Sean McDermott tempered his critique of Phillips’ penalty.“He’s playing emotional football,” McDermott said. “He made a great play in the backfield, but at the same time, you can’t beat yourself. If that’s how they’re going to call it, that’s how they’re going to call it, and we have to play smarter than that.”On the play after the infraction, the Bills stopped Miami for another loss, and Phillips directed showy applause toward the Miami bench. Bills coaches then took him out of the game, and he watched from the sideline as Tannehill hit Kenny Stills with a 13-yard scoring pass for a 21-17 lead.Allen then drove the Bills to the Miami 23 before he was sacked on consecutive plays, and Stephen Hauschka missed a 55-yard field goal attempt.The Bills drove 65 yards in the final 2 1/2 minutes but again came up short — literally. A completion to Zay Jones at the 6 was overturned by a replay review. Allen’s final pass was off-balance, wobbly and underthrown, but Clay said he should have made the grab.“I just didn’t come down with it,” Clay said. “You’ve just got to catch it. I feel like I let everybody down.”Allen threw touchdown passes of 15 and 25 yards to Jones, and the duo also connected on a 2-point conversion. But Allen was intercepted twice by Xavien Howard and twice missed open receivers for potential scores.A muffed punt by the Bills’ Isaiah McKenzie led to the Dolphins’ second touchdown Ryan Groy Jerseys 2019 , which put them ahead 14-6.FIERY BILLSAfter the game, Phillips walked toward the Miami sideline and traded hugs with many of his former teammates.Meanwhile, Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes confronted an official in the tunnel near the locker room. Hughes accused the official of calling him a vulgar name.“I’ll catch you. I’ll catch you, guaranteed,” Hughes shouted, waving his index finger, as he was pulled away by Bills officials.Hughes later declined to elaborate on the reason for his anger.“I was angry?” he said. “I lost the game, so I am supposed to be angry.”INJURY REPORTBills C Russell Bodine left in the first quarter with a left leg injury and did not return.Dolphins reserve CB Cornell Armstrong left with a knee injury.UP NEXTThe Dolphins play host to AFC East New England on Sunday. The Patriots won the earlier meeting 38-7 in Week 4.The Bills play at home Sunday against the New York Jets, who lost an earlier meeting 41-10 in Week 10.
