In his first major move as general manager, Brian Gutekunst sent cornerback Damarious Randall to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for quarterback DeShone Kizer in a trade consummated Friday.

Trades can not become official until the start of the new league year on March 14. He went in the second round to the Cleveland Browns, then had a nightmare rookie season. The Browns traded for quarterback Tyrod Taylor in their flurry of moves Friday and have two top-four picks in this year's draft, so Kizer became unnecessary.

NFL Media's Ian Rapoport says the Browns traded Kizer to Green Bay as part of the trade involving cornerback Demetrious Randall. ESPN's Adam Schefter noted the teams are also swapping fourth- and fifth-round draft picks. Their depth chart now consists of 2017 second-round pick Kevin King, who is coming off shoulder surgery; Quinton Rollins, a 2015 second-round pick coming off a ruptured Achilles' tendon; and youngsters Josh Hawkins, Lenzy Pipkins, Donatello Brown and Herb Waters.

Not only was accuracy an issue, but turnovers also added to the Browns' problems.

The Toledo, Ohio, native completed 255 of 476 passes for 2,894 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also rushed for 419 yards and five touchdowns, but lost six fumbles.

However, Kizer rarely looked comfortable in the pocket, partly because teams were constantly blitzing him, and he was sacked 38 times.

A year ago, quarterback DeShone Kizer was a borderline first-round prospect.
