The Cleveland Browns are reportedly looking to trade out of the 2nd pick in next week’s NFL Draft and are dilligently working the phones — hoping to land a trade partner.
According to a report by Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, the Philadelphia Eagles, appear to be a willing trade partner.
One likely trade partner, the source said, is the Philadelphia Eagles at No. 8, who were the runner-ups to the Rams in the sweepstakes to move up to No. 1 with the Titans.
NFL Network’s Jeff Darlington first reported Tuesday that Executive Vice President Sashi Brown is making calls in the top 10 to gauge the market for the No. 2 pick.
The draft game changed last week week when the Rams traded up to No. 1 with the Titans to take one of the top two quarterbacks, Carson Wentz or Jared Goff. Since that time, speculation has mounted that the Browns will try to get a similar haul for the right to choose the quarterback the Rams leave on the board.
The Titans dealt the top pick in the draft along with their fourth (No. 113) and sixth-round (177) picks to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for their first-round (15), both of their second round (43 and 45) and third-round selection (76) in 2016 along with a first and a third next year.
