Cleveland Browns trade RB Carlos Hyde to Jacksonville Jaguars

Carlos Hyde

Update: per Tom Pelissero and Sirius XM NFL Radio, the Browns will receive a fifth-round pick in 2019 from Jacksonville.

This was always going to be an experimental year for the Browns, which is the best way to explain why the Browns traded their starting running back Friday afternoon.

Hyde signed a three-year, $15.25 million deal with the Browns this offseason and struggled to produce despite garnering 15-plus carries in five of his six games, and 20-plus in three of the six. He's scored five touchdowns this season, but is averaging a career-low 3.4 yards-per-carry, which is 0.5 yards worse than his previous career low set last season. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Cleveland Browns have traded running back Carlos Hyde to the Jacksonville Jaguars. It will be the fifth game he's missed this season because of the nagging injury.

Saudi Arabia May Admit Killing Khashoggi?
On Monday, before the investigators moved in, professional cleaners were seen entering the consulate through the front door. Some reports have indicated the Saudi regime may soon acknowledge that Khashoggi died in an interrogation gone wrong.

The trade clears the way for rookie running back Nick Chubb, selected 35th overall in the 2018 draft, to take over as the primary back. He's also been a non-factor in the passing game, catching just six balls all season.

The trade says two things: the Browns are comfortable rolling with Nick Chubb and Duke Johnson Jr.as the team's tailbacks and the Jaguars aren't confident in the health of Leonard Fournette.

This move affords them more opportunities to reach that potential.
