That tweet is from nearly this exact time a year ago when the Bills were debating moving on from Taylor, and it remains a salient point, but the difference here is that the Browns have two of the first four picks in the upcoming draft, which is as well positioned as any team will ever be to try and improve on that 17.
-The Tennessee Titans have informed safety Da'Norris Searcy, quarterback Matt Cassel and wide receiver Eric Weems that they will be released, the team announced.
It is a move that accomplishes several goals for the Bills, beginning with the No. 65 overall pick Buffalo acquired from Cleveland. Thomas, who played more than 10,000 straight snaps before tearing his left triceps last season, is mulling retirement.
The acquisition of Taylor would seem to change Cleveland's plans to pursue a veteran quarterback in free agency, which begins Monday when teams are permitted to contact agents.

For the low cost of a 4th round pick this year and a 7th rounder next year, the Browns get a guy who has caught 206 passes over the last two seasons.

Fired-up Rabada takes 5, Australia out for 243 in 2nd test
Rabada now has five demerit points on his disciplinary record and will be banned for two tests if he reaches eight demerit points. Australia endured a tough opening day to the second Test, suffering a dramatic collapse as it went from 0/98 to all out for 243.
Sherman played only nine games in 2017 before sustaining a season-ending ruptured Achilles tendon.
Who the Bills target will likely dictate how far they need to move up. Haley spent the past six seasons working with Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell.
Taylor has always been one of the most polarizing players in the National Football League, but the bottom line is he represents a fantastic safety net for a franchise that hasn't been able to generate even respectable quarterback play for the better part of 20 years.
The Baltimore Ravens, an AFC North foe of the Browns, were among the other teams interested making a move for Landry, the Miami Herald reported. "It's the offseason and I just want to stay out of it". Last season, he threw for 2,799 yards and 14 touchdowns.
Cleveland selected the rifle-armed Kizer in the second round last year, and after a odd training camp in which he passed both Cody Kessler and Brock Osweiler on the depth chart, the 22-year-old was named the Browns' starter by coach Hue Jackson.
Using the franchise designation to retain running back Le'Veon Bell all but evaporated any salary cap space the team will have for shopping the open market next week at the open of free agency.
