The Cleveland Browns are updating their roster for the upcoming season.

The team has landed WR Jarvis Landry from the Miami Dolphins and QB Tyrod Taylor from Buffalo.

The Browns also traded QB Deshone Kizer to the Green Bay Packers for DB Damarious Randall.

DL Danny Shelton is headed to the Patriots for a conditional pick for a 2019 third-round pick for the Browns.

The team has also tendered restricted free agent DL Jamie Meder and extended qualifying offers to the exclusive rights to the following free agents: WR Josh Gordon, WR Matt Hazel, QB Kevin Hogan, OL Austin Reiter and FB Danny Vitale.

Here's what Browns GM John Dorsey had to say about the team's roster to open the 2018 league year:

“I think anytime you can have a chance to acquire three good football players right off the bat in the trades, you've got to do it. I give a lot of credit to everyone in football operations because we sat there for two months. We made some plans and laid some plans in regard to free agency and how we were going to attack it. We identified certain players we thought would help this organization moving forward who had the qualities we were looking for with regard to do they love football? Are they leaders at their position? Are they guys that are going to be good in the locker room? I thought the three guys in the trades fit everything we were looking for.”
