Browns send QB Kessler to Jags for pick

A conditional seventh-round selection in 2019 for Kessler is certainly not giving up major assets, and essentially makes the trade a low-risk deal.

The Cleveland Browns have traded Cody Kessler to the Jacksonville Jaguars for a conditional seventh round pick in 2019. Look for the team to still use a selection on a quarterback, and one in the early rounds of the draft is definitely still in play.

Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell recently said the team had a "backup quarterback" plan. "Despite being just 24 years old, Cody has already seen National Football League game action and was very effective as a rookie in 2016, showing accuracy and efficiency in posting a quarterback rating of 90-plus".

Despite the dismal weather, the mood was upbeat as Sir Ken's legions of fans clutched feather dusters as a wry mark of respect. He added: "Ken always said his gift, his talents, were from God and comedians like Ken, they only come once in a lifetime".

Kessler was selected by the Browns in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft and opened the season as the team's third quarterback. What may be a surprise is the move Jacksonville made on Wednesday in shoring up the position.

The 6-foot-1, 215-pound passer has appeared 12 career games - making eight starts - during his two seasons in the NFL.

Kessler found himself taking the field as the starting quarterback against the Miami Dolphins in Week 3. In 2016, Kessler set Browns' rookie records for completion percentage (65.5 pct.), passer rating (92.3) and fewest interceptions in a season (two). However, he finished his rookie year with just enough of a tease to make fans believe he could step up his game in 2017. Coach Hue Jackson tried to deflect the harsh assessments of Kessler by saying, "Trust me" about the former Southern Cal standout. The first came earlier this month when Cleveland acquired Tyrod Taylor in a trade with the Bills. He might not win you the game, but he won't play so poorly that you are out of the contest by halftime.
