Browns' sadness taken to a whole new level during trade deadline

Now, if you're thinking that this the most Browns thing that could ever happen, know that according to later reports, it actually gets worse.

Schefter reported the Bengals had approved the deal five minutes before the 4 p.m. ET deadline but the Browns didn't agree in time. The league disagreed. AJ McCarron is staying with the Bengals.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reported that the Bengals were to receive a 2018 second and third round pick for McCarron from the Browns, an even higher price than what San Francisco paid New England for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, which was a 2018 second-rounder, Monday night.

The Cleveland Browns are now 0-8 and once again look like one of the worst teams in the NFL. When Dalton went down with an injury in 2015, McCarron efficiently ran the show while leading the Bengals into the playoffs, almost beating the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Wild Card round. But costly red zone turnovers have landed him on the bench twice in a three-game span. Hue Jackson has tried both Kevin Hogan and Cody Kessler in the starting role, but neither has been able to pry it away from Kizer permanently.

To make matters worse, a follow up from Schefter would reveal that the Bengals had submitted the trade on time, meaning responsibility for the missed opportunity rested exclusively on the shoulders of the Cleveland franchise.
