Per Schefter at ESPN

NFL stunner: Texans trade QB Brock Osweiler AND a 2018 second-round pick to Cleveland for the Browns to take Osweiler’s $16M salary of Houston’s books, per league sources. The move clears out millions in salary-cap space for Houston to intensify efforts to sign former Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, per sources. To be exact, Houston saves $16 million in cash and $10 million against their cap this season. The Texans also will get the Browns’ fourth-round pick this year in exchange for their own 6th-round pick. So Cleveland gets Osweiler’s contract, a 2018 second-round pick and a 2017 sixth-round pick, and Houston gets Cleveland’s 2017 fourth-round pick, saves $10 million in salary-cap space and $16 million in cash. Cleveland is not committed to keeping Osweiler and is likely to try to trade him, per sources. If so, it would turn into a basketball-like trade in which NBA teams routinely trade contracts to get them off their books; only it rarely, if ever, happens in the NFL. It’s hard to remember in the salary-cap era another team when a team traded a contract to get it off its books. But Houston was so anxious to rid itself of Osweiler and move on to its next quarterbacking chapter that it is giving Cleveland extra picks to take him and his contract. The Browns headed into this free-agent signing period with over $100 million worth of salary-cap space and would struggle to spend it all. Now they can devote some of it to Osweiler’s contract and acquiring extra draft picks from Houston. But this is one of the most, if not the most, creative trade in NFL history.


AND they're still trying to move him from Cleveland

Cleveland has the cap space to take this on, and they got compensated with draft picks to do this, so I can't say I'm seeing a downside for them? Aside from shitty Brock that is.

LOL @ Houston for that bomb of a signing that cost them a second rounder to get rid of.

Seems like a creative way to get a pick and save cap room for next year. If Brock works out it's a bonus, if he stinks or gets cut it doesn't make much difference in the overall scheme of things. Second round picks are worth a lot in this league. I see no downside for the Browns here.

Nice timing with The 7 here.

Also, I can't believe we still talked about this stuff for over a week as recently as 2010 (The W).

Good lord, looking back at that trade who would have thought the Browns would have ended up 'winning' it? They got one great year from Hillis, and the other picks turned into Jason Pinkston (OL) and Ryan Miller (OL). At least Pinkston was pretty good until he retired due to medical issues.

Now we get to listen to non-stop Garoppolo talk for the next however-long.

He (Garoppolo) tweeted out "goodbye" overnight.
I wonder if he knows something.

Just saw a state that blew my mind, Browns have 8 picks in the first 2 rounds between this year and next, and 22 picks overall.
Talk about rebuilding.
