Browns add Hyde; Barkley still in play

Browns add Hyde; Barkley still in play

However, the agreement to sign Hyde does not eliminate Saquon Barkley from the Browns' draft board, according to a league source familiar with the team's thinking.

Hyde, 27, will provide the Browns offense a proven runner to compliment pass-catching back Duke Johnson, who the team likes to move out to the slot.

With the Browns paying Hyde $5 million a season for the next three seasons, it means Barkley could potentially get his wish of playing alongside Odell Beckham Jr. and Eli Manning.

NFL Network reported the Browns will give Hyde a three-year, $15 million deal. Quinn, the former Browns first-round pick, was quick to agree with Mortensen's assertion.

The Spartans dropped from the top spot the following week starting the New Year with losses to Ohio State and MI . Others like Michigan State and Purdue , also had nothing to worry about, they knew at least they were getting in.

The Giants had been very high on Barkley and he looked to be their top choice with the No. 2 pick of the draft after their dismal 3-13 campaign.

Fells played with the Lions past year after three seasons in Arizona. They traded with the Miami Dolphins for wide receiver Jarvis Landry, with the Buffalo Bills for quarterback Tyrod Taylor, and with the Green Bay Packers for cornerback Damarious Randall. John Dorsey has proven he's a more competent general manager than all of his predecessors and that will result in Barkley on the Browns come April. ESPN's Adam Schefter has also confirmed the report.

Hyde has rushed for over 900 yards the past two seasons, and his addition will offset the probable loss of Crowell, who has been in talks with the New York Jets. He's scored 21 rushing touchdowns since being drafted in the second round by San Francisco in 2014. Hyde had a solid rookie season behind then starter Frank Gore, amassing 83 carries for 333 yards and four touchdowns. It was the first time in his four-year career he played and started all 16 games. Hyde also has 109 catches for 634 yards and three TDs.
