Cleveland Browns ‘exploring ways’ to bolster offense before NFL trade deadline

Hue Jackson, Browns

The NFL trade deadline is only a few days away with teams around the league having until Tues. Oct. 31 to gets deals done in an effort to improve their rosters. Apparently, the Cleveland Browns are one of the more active teams in the league as the deadline draws near.

According to ESPN, the Browns are looking to improve their offense ahead of the deadline.

The Cleveland Browns are exploring ways to acquire more offensive weapons before Tuesday’s trade deadline, a league source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

With eight straight losses to start the 2017 NFL season, it appears to be another disappointing campaign for Hue Jackson and company in Cleveland. The Browns have now started consecutive seasons with eight losses, and their struggles don’t seem like they’ll be coming to an end anytime soon unless significant changes are made.

Cleveland may have a star in the making in rookie Myles Garrett. The number one overall pick in this year’s draft could help turn things around defensively for the struggling franchise, but the same can’t be said for rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer who has failed convince the team that he was the right choice for the franchise.

It remains to be seen how patient the Browns will be with Kizer under center and if they believe that adding some weapons around the rookie quarterback could help show his true potential on the NFL level.
