Deal Agreed: Browns finally Consider Replacing P.J. Walker with $128 Million QB

The Cleveland Browns had aspirations at the trade deadline but fell short of most of them.


Cleveland was interested in adding a wide receiver and an offensive lineman, per Dianna Russini of The Athletic. The team was also in the market for a running back, per Jay Glazer of FOX Sports. The Browns offered a sixth-round pick to the Commanders for former starting QB Jacoby Brissett, but Washington turned them away. In the end, the only move the Browns actually made was flipping wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones to the Detroit Lions for a fifth-rounder in 2025.

The only path left for Cleveland to fulfill its needs now resides in a relatively bare free agent market. The Browns added running back Kenyan Drake to the practice squad on Tuesday, October 31, which addressed one concern — albeit in a relatively uninspiring fashion.

The franchise should also seriously consider spending some of its $35.5 million in available salary cap space to add free-agent QB Carson Wentz to the roster and afford its championship-level defense with a passing attack capable of contributing to winning in a real way.
