Browns 2018 Odds With Tyrod Taylor, Jarvis Landry: Improvement Likely

Written by:

The Cleveland Browns entered Friday with 150/1 odds of winning Super Bowl 53.

While the Browns probably won't win a Super Bowl, they should be much improved in 2018 thanks to two blockbuster trades, one involving the acquisition of former Dolphins pro bowler receiver Jarvis Landry followed by a move for former Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor.

They traded a mid-round draft pick for Taylor.

Even after Friday's deals, the Browns still have the Nos. 1, 4, 33, 35 and 64 picks in this year's draft.

Taylor averaged 6.66 yards per pass attempt and threw for 14 touchdowns in 2017, less than his career highs set in 2015 of 8.0 yards per attempt and 20 touchdowns. He also compiled an 89.2 passer rating and a 53.0 Total QBR, down from his career-high 99.4 passer rating and 66.3 Total QBR in 2015.

The Bills signed Taylor to a five-year contract extension before the 2016 season that could have allowed him to earn $90 million.

Taylor ends his Bills career as the franchise's all-time leader in passer rating (92.5) among quarterbacks to have started at least one game. His 1,575 rushing yards are also the most in franchise history among quarterbacks.

Taylor's 1,575 rushing yards are the second-most in the NFL since 2015 by a quarterback behind Cam Newton (1,749).
