The Cleveland Browns troubles continue with yet another loss to the New England Patriots. While that match seemed more to welcome back Tom Brady into the fold, the fact remains that the boys of Hue Jackson need to find out how to start winning.
The Browns remain winless and are likely to miss out in the NFL postseason wars. The Browns can easily justify their current stands since they are rebuilding, something that could ramp up before Nov. 1.
Will there be moves before NFL trade deadline?
Nov. 1 will be the last day to make trades and the Browns could aid their rebuilding efforts by unloading some veterans. That could include Terrelle Pryor, Joe Thomas and/or Joe Haden, three names which have been mentioned in possible trade scenarios, Bleacher Report reported.
Will “Big Three” move?
Despite the fact that the Browns are in rebuilding mode, the question on the future of three veterans on their end is a curious case. Terrelle Pryor, Joe Thomas, and Joe Haden have drawn interest from other teams though it may take more than a simple one-for-one trade to snag them.
Of the mix, Pryor seems likely to be given away without a price. The wide receiver who started out his career at quarterback is considered ‘untouchable’ and retaining him will be the main focus of the Browns, Cleveland.com reported.
Sadly the case may not be the same for the two Joes – Thomas and Haden. This isn’t the first time that Thomas’ name has been linked to a potential NFL trade. With the Browns going nowhere, dealing the 31-year-old at this point seems to make sense but only at the right price.
Haden seems to be a more likely chip to be dealt seeing how he has not excelled thus far. At 27, he could be of better use to other teams who could take a risk on the cornerback.
Aside from Pryor, trading Haden or Thomas for picks or younger assets could be the right choice. All that depends on Jackson and his crew as they figure out the best for the Cleveland Browns future.
