After lengthy negotiations that began in the offseason, DML GMs Kalel and SJ agreed on a trade that sent Browns LOLB Jacob Phillips, CB Tyrone Murphy, and the Browns 1st round draft pick to the Chiefs in exchange for their 1st round pick and 3rd round pick. The Browns are betting on themselves and also betting that the Chiefs continue to slide in the AFC standings were they currently sit at 2-4.
Jacob Phillips, just 24 years old is in the final year of his rookie deal but agreed on a 5 year extension worth $40M upon his arrival to K.C.
Tyrone Murphy adds some youth to an improved secondary. Murphy’s rare 97 acceleration is rare and coaches are waiting to see how it translates on the field.
