Packers trade CB Randall to Browns

However, his 22 interceptions led the league. Yet, his ability to be a ballhawk didn't cover up his weaknesses on the field and his attitude that did not sit well in the locker room.

Given how the Packers have framed this offseason as being defined by change and aggression, we can only assume this is a precursor to more major moves, including a potential splash for a free-agent cornerback. Quinten Rollins, Kentrell Brice and Demtri Goodson are all coming back from injury as well.

He also didn't have his top wideout, Josh Gordon, until December. Sherman was released this week by Seattle. Several Packer players, like David Bahktiari, even reached out to Sherman via Twitter. But after that September dust-up, Randall played the rest of the season as Dom Capers' best cornerback in a secondary that was already razor-thin at the position.

Rapoport added that it was last year's second-round pick, quarterback DeShone Kizer, whom the Browns moved in exchange for Randall, who is entering his fourth season. His first game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers was not the debut he was hoping for.

His final numbers for 2018: 192 completions in 316 attempts (60.5%).

Randall's three-year tenure was the shortest for a Packers first-round pick since 2004 first-round selection cornerback Ahmad Carroll, who lasted just two full seasons.

Randall snagged a career-high four interceptions in 2017, though some were a case of being in the right place when the ball was tipped.

The Packers, who are most certainly committed to Rodgers as their starter, appear to be controlling their quarterback costs with the trade for Kizer. His passer rating was 53.6.

The Toledo, Ohio, native completed 255 of 476 passes for 2,894 yards and 11 touchdowns. Hundley was ill-prepared for the rigors of the National Football League regular season despite three years of development. His arrival could also spell the end of plucky D3 QB Joe Callahan.

NFL Network reported both sides are open to Sherman returning under a new contract if he can not find the right deal in free agency.
