NFL: Browns trade Browns quarterback to Raiders for a third-round pick
The Cleveland Browns traded quarterback Cody Kessler to the Oakland Raiders for two second-round picks, league sources told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.
The Browns have also given up a third first-round draft pick and a conditional fourth-round selection in return for the pick, which they will use to move up to No. 11 in the upcoming NFL draft.
The Raiders have the right to match any pick they receive.
Kessler is set to make $5.6 million this season, according to Spotrac.com.
In a separate report, the Browns released quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, the second consecutive season that he has missed more than two games.
Fitzpatrick, who is scheduled to make a base salary of $1.633 million, was released by the Bills and the New York Jets earlier this month after he threw 11 touchdown passes and two interceptions in his first two seasons.
