Report: Bills trade Wyatt Teller to Browns for fifth and sixth round picks in 2020
Trade: The Bills sent G Wyatt Teller and a 7th round pick in 2021 to the Browns in exchange for a 5th round pick and 6th round pick in 2020.
With only one exhibition game left before the start of the 2019 NFL season, it is clear that the Browns still had some concerns abut the state of their offensive line. Teller will now have a chance to start on a Browns team that has generated plenty of hype this offseason.
The Bills selected Teller in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL season. The former Virginia Tech product went into his rookie season as the backup guard, however, he was eventually named the starter in Week 10 of the 2018 campaign and remained there for the final seven games of the year.
Despite his promise, Buffalo had put an emphasis on fortifying their offensive line in front of quarterback Josh Allen this offseason.
As a result, Teller found himself pegged as the backup once again while spending training camp and the preseason running with the second unit. It appears their newfound depth ultimately resulted in his rather short tenure with the Bills.
Fortunately, Teller has been given an opportunity at a fresh start in Cleveland.
He will need to get acquainted with the Browns’ offense as quickly as possible now that the preseason has drawn to close.
