The Browns have a history of making the occasional trade, even if it’s in the midst of the season, and it was evident last year with the trade of QB Josh McCown.
This year, the Browns are making a similar move, and they might be just getting started.
The Browns traded WR Corey Coleman to the Oakland Raiders in exchange for CBs Jalen “Jalen Ramsey and a third-round pick in 2018.
The Browns got a decent return in Coleman, who was the Browns second-round draft pick in 2016 and is now the Browns third-rounder.
It was the second-highest round value for a corner the Browns received in the 2017 draft.
Coleman had five interceptions in three seasons with the Browns, and he finished with 16 passes defensed.
Coleman has played in just four games this season, but he is the Browns first-round selection since the 2016 draft.
Ramsey is the fifth-year cornerback the Browns drafted after Coleman.
He has started 15 games over the past three seasons and has played both cornerback and safety.
He was drafted with the fourth overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
The Raiders made it official Sunday morning, according to The Los Angeles Times.
Ramsey was signed to a three-year deal, which will pay him $7.8 million in 2018, $9.5 million in 2019 and $10.2 million in 2020.
He also will make $2.5 of each of the first two years of the deal, but the Raiders also will take a $5.5-million signing bonus in 2021.
The Raiders made the move after losing out on McCown, but they are not expected to make a big splash.
