Brown agrees to trade for Jerry Jeudy

Brown agrees to trade for Jerry Jeudy

As the Broncos continue to reshape their roster, the Browns have agreed to acquire one of their key offensive players.

According to multiple reports, Cleveland will replace receiver Jerry Jeudy when the new league year begins next week.

The Browns will send the Broncos a fifth- and sixth-round pick in 2024 to complete the deal.

Denver made some moves this week to clear cap space, such as releasing safety Justin Simmons. By trading Jeudy, the Broncos would save $12.987 million against the cap.

The 15th overall pick of the 2020 draft, Jeudy enters the final year of his rookie contract after the Broncos exercised his fifth-year option last year. He appeared in 57 games with 44 starts in his first four seasons, recording 211 catches for 3,053 yards with 11 touchdowns.

Jeudy has never reached 1,000 receiving yards in a season. The closest he came was in 2022 when he caught 67 passes for 972 yards with six TDs.

In 2023, Jeudy finished with 54 receptions for 758 yards with two touchdowns in 16 games with 11 starts.

Multiple reports have indicated that the Browns have made an attempt to acquire Jeudy at the trade deadline in 2023. Now once the new league year arrives, Jeudy will join Amari Cooper and Elijah Moore as receivers Cleveland has acquired via trade over the past few years.
