Typically, Friday afternoons are for bad-news dumps. A team that has created plenty of bad news for its fans in recent years potentially have given then good cause for hope via a trio of trades that have broken since 4:00 p.m. ET today.
However it s out, Friday’s trades hardly means the Browns are done. Instead, it feels like they’re just getting started.
Smith signed a three-year, $15 million deal with the Eagles as a free agent last offseason, but the emergence of other receivers, a lack of guaranteed money and a tight cap situation pointed to his departure this month. Trading him for Worley clears over $4 million in cap space as Worley is still on the rookie deal he signed as a 2016 third-round pick.
It also gives the Eagles, who also traded for defensive end Michael Bennett this week, further insurance against the potential loss of Patrick Robinson in free agency. Worley started 14 games for Carolina last season and had a pair of interceptions.
The Panthers were expected to add to a wide receiver group fronted by Devin Funchess and 2017 second-round pick Curtis Samuel and Smith has been a deep threat throughout his career. That would seem to make him a fit for what Norv Turner has traditionally liked in the passing game and he’ll be joining the Panthers next week as long as nothing forces the teams to reconsider the deal over the next few days.Cardinals, Broncos had interest in Tyrod Taylor

Which is why the Giants could instead continue to stockpile picks by trading down after holding an auction for their No. 2 overall selection.
If Shumur is really, honestly serious about his Manning comments, and Gettleman’s heart longs for Chubb, there’s a solution that can satisfy everyone.
The Giants can trade down and swap picks with the Denver Broncos, a team that just signed Case Keenum, but surely knows the career journeyman isn’t a long-term answer. The Broncos signaled they’re still shopping for a quarterback by giving Keenum only a two-year contract.
