CLEVELAND (AP) r11; A starting quarterback. A three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver. A shut-down cornerback. With three major trades, the Cleveland Browns let it be known that they intend to be taken seriously.
Two months after an agonizing 0-16 season mercifully ended, new general manager John Dorsey addressed three major needs on the eve of free agency 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 in 2019 and sent the Bills the No. 65 overall pick in this yearr17;s draft.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) r11; The Seattle Seahawks cut ties with star cornerback Richard Sherman John Randle Jersey , who became one of the NFLr17;s premier cornerbacks during his seven seasons with the team.
The team informed Sherman early in the day he would be released, and he confirmed the decision in a text message to The Associated Press. The move appeared to be building after he met with the team Wednesday to discuss his future. Sherman declined to comment after the meeting.
Sherman was an overlooked fifth-round draft pick who went on to become a two-time All-Pro who helped anchor a defense that was the leaguer17;s best for several years. He will be 30 years old going into next season and coming off an Achilles tendon injury that cost him half of the 2017 season.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) r11; Tampa Bayr17;s Mike Evans agreed to a five-year, $82.5 million contract extension that makes him the second-highest paid receiver in the NFL.
The deal includes $55 million guaranteed and also makes Evans the highest-paid player with the Buccaneers with an average annual salary of $16.5 million. Thatr17;s second among NFL receivers behind Antonio Brownr17;s $17 million.
Evans acknowledged the extension, which runs through 2023, in an Instagram post, noting he will be r1;spending the next several seasons in Tampa Bayr1; with a singular focus on helping the Bucs win a Super Bowl.
The Buccaneers also re-signed backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who appeared in six games last season. He is 35 years old and has played 13 seasons in the NFL. He returns on a one-year contract.
NEW YORK (AP) r11; Former New York Jets star Mark Gastineau made an emotional plea to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to help former players like him who are dealing with football-related health issues.

The 61-year-old Gastineau announced last year that he was diagnosed with dementia, Alzheimerr17;s disease and Parkinsonr17;s disease, and believes the conditions are the result of brain trauma from playing in the NFL for 10 seasons.
Gastineau says Goodell told him when they talked over a year ago that he should let him know if he needs anything. The former sack-dancing star began to cry during the interview with host Pete McCarthy when he spoke of his daily struggles to get out of bed and remember names.
JUPITER, Fla. (AP) r11; Baseball playersr17; union head Tony Clark claims the Marlinsr17; rebuilding decision is different from the ones that led to World Series titles for the Chicago Cubs and Houston because Miami broke up a competitive club.
r1;Those teams didnr17;t tear themselves down,r1; Clark said. r1;Those teams went through rough stretches. And then they added, too. When you start with a team that has a number of talented players and you tear that down, itr17;s a different conversation than starting from scratch and building up.r1;
The union has filed grievance two weeks ago against Miami, Pittsburgh Chris Godwin Jersey , Oakland and Tampa Bay, accusing them of not properly using money received in revenue sharing.
