We are also looking at Guard Rodger Saffold ex Rams to maybe play in Zeitlers position

That’s why Dorsey drafted Corbett knowing he’d be ready by year 2 so he’d be able to move Zeitler and his contract to fill a bigger need

Anyone know if this changes the cap space ?

New #Browns LB Olivier Vernon is due $15.5 million each of the two remaining years on his deal. #Browns had about $77 million in cap space to work with entering today. Not a lot of edge help available in free agency, so this trade makes a lot of sense

 

Meanwhile, Kevin Zeitler has 3 years left on his contract and is due $10 million in base salary in 2019. Trading him to the #Giants takes $5.2 million off the #Browns' cap this season, for a net increase of $10.3 million ... and they still have over $67 million to work with.

Not Sure how I feel about this. Zeitler was one of the best pass blockers in the league. Vernon is 28. What do you guys think? Can Corbett fill the role?

If we can get Rodger Saffold in FA that makes the deal a great one for us ....we upgrade the pass rush and get like for like on the O line

Dorsey is a smart cookie. He has earned our trust 110 percent. No doubt he has a plan of attack in place and this is part of it. Excited to see this D get after the quarterback this coming season.

If Corbett can fill the void I think it can be a good deal for both sides. On the surface, this looks more like a win for the Giants than for us.

Maybe we can also grab the newly cut Malik Jackson as well?

I just mentioned that in the FA thread :)

 An overall loss of 5 mil for this year ain’t bad for the talent that was aquired. Very smart move instead of overpaying in FA

The so called experts on twitter are saying Browns won the deal but time will tell on the field :)

Zietler and Bito pair to form one of the best pass pro interiors in the NFL.  

Vernon is on the downside of his career. 

Not feeling this.

Vernon is a top 100 player, ranked 70 something from 2018 and he was out 5 games. Garrett was ranked 50 something. Pressured on 11% of dropbacks

Does this guy fill our need for an edge rusher opposite  Garrett?

NFL channel - whoever it was, an "expert" - says the Browns' defense just got a LOT better with Vernon added.

I think Corbett can step in and take over.
