Brock Osweiler's Contract & Salary With Browns

In a surprise move, the Texans traded quarterback Brock Osweiler to the Cleveland Browns for a 2018 second-round pick. The Texans will also send their a 2018 second-round pick and 2017 sixth-round pick as part of the deal with the Browns.

If the Browns are unable to trade Osweiler, they could end up releasing him since they can afford to take the cap hit, unlike the Texans who couldn't afford to cut him since their cap space is limited. It will sound more reasonable when you hear that Houston saved $16 million in cash and $10 million in cap space.

Osweiler signed a four-year, $72 million contract with the Texans exactly one year ago but was disappointing in his first season with Houston. In the Texans' divisional round playoff loss to the Patriots, he threw one touchdown and three interceptions while completing just 57.5 percent of his passes for 197 yards.

Browns executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown said: "We're really excited to acquire a second-round draft choice in this trade". They can keep Osweiler on the roster for the year, pay him his $16 million, then cut him with no repercussions.

Does this mean the Texans will turn their attention to Tony Romo? However, given this flurry of moves, it's clear the Browns front office is executing a plan without waiting around for Belichick to dictate the terms on a deal for a potential franchise quarterback.

The Browns have traded for a quarterback, but it might not take them out of the running for Jimmy Garoppolo.

This Osweiler trade doesn't make the Browns a guarantee to trade for Garoppolo, although they remain the Patriots best hope.

So, where does that leave Browns quarterback Robert Griffin III?

Hughes also pointed out Griffin visited with the Jets previous year before signing with the Browns as a free agent. To this point, the Browns have favored Mitchell Trubisky over Deshaun Watson, but Watson closed the gap some with a sensational combine, and still has two more chances to impress the Browns in a private workout and a visit to Cleveland. At the same time, this is not the same Browns front office we have been laughing at for the last two decades.
