CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns may have just landed a new Quarterback, according to multiple reports.
Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson has agreed to waive his no-trade clause to go to the Browns, ESPN’s Adam Schefter and NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.
The move would come less than 24 hours after Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield requested a trade from Cleveland immediately. The Browns weren’t willing to let him go just yet, the AP reported.
Bleacher Report reported Friday afternoon that Watson would be traded to the Browns in exchange for three first round picks and two additional picks.
Schefter reported Watson’s new deal with the Browns will be worth $230 million, which would set a new record for the highest guarantee given to an NFL player.
