Jarvis Landry is leaving one bad offense for another one.

The Miami Dolphins agreed to trade the Pro Bowl receiver to the Cleveland Browns for two draft picks Olivier Rodrigue Oilers Jersey , two people familiar with the deal said Friday.

The people confirmed the agreement to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because under NFL rules, no trade can be completed until Wednesday, the start of the league's new year. The Dolphins will receive a fourth-round pick this year and a seventh-rounder in 2019, one of the people said.

Miami finished sixth-worst in scoring last season and went 6-10. Cleveland finished last in scoring and went 0-16.

The Browns were desperate to land a playmaker such as Landry, who will complement former Pro Bowl receiver Josh Gordon. Landry has been selected to three consecutive Pro Bowls and has 400 receptions, an NFL record for a fourth-year player.

"Y'all better understand (stuff) about to get SERIOUS... ON MY MAMA," Landry tweeted after news of the deal broke.

The trade was among a flurry Friday by the Browns. They agreed to acquire quarterback Tyrod Taylor from the Buffalo Bills for a third-round draft pick, and agreed to send quarterback DeShone Kizer to the Green Bay Packers for cornerback Damarious Randall.

Landry signed a $16 million, one-year franchise tag Thursday with Miami, clearing the path for his trade. The Dolphins began shopping him when the parties were unable to reach an agreement on a long-term contract.

He's likely to get that extension from the Browns.

Landry made $894,000 last year Jonathan Cooper Jersey Elite , when he completed the contract he signed as a rookie. He was by far the highest-profile Dolphins player eligible for free agency, and perhaps the best player on an offense that sputtered with quarterback Jay Cutler.

But Landry's volatile personality became a concern for Miami. He was ejected in the fourth quarter of the season finale, a loss to Buffalo, and coach Adam Gase said the episode was embarrassing and "extremely bad."

Miami's passing attack in 2017 gave Landry a bizarre stat line: 112 receptions to lead the league and break his own franchise record, but an average of 8.8 yards per catch to rank 110th. He a career-high nine touchdowns but finished 13 yards shy of 1,000.

Landry's departure adds a receiver to the Dolphins' long list of offseason needs. Receivers Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker are expected to return, along with quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who missed all of 2017 because of a knee injury.

Cleveland is $113 million under the salary cap and was expected to seek an impact receiver in free agency. Acquiring Landry has likely changed those plans and the Browns can address a multitude of other needs.

Landry typically plays slot receiver, and the Browns have been disappointed with the production of former first-round draft pick Corey Coleman, who has been injured the past two seasons.

Gordon may benefit most from Landry's arrival and the talented 26-year-old posted four trophy emojis on his Twitter page after the news of trade broke.

With 12 picks in this year's draft, including the Nos. 1 and 4 overall and five in the first 64 Authentic Alex Cappa Jersey , the Browns had the ability to pull off a major deal for a major player.

Hue Jackson has handed his offense over to former Pittsburgh coordinator Todd Haley, who should know how to best use a player of Landry's skill after coaching Antonio Brown the past few seasons.

Cleveland's offense didn't have a legitimate go-to receiver last season until Gordon returned from an indefinite NFL suspension with five games left. Running back Duke Johnson finished as the club's leading receiver.

Without enough players to spread out defenses, the Browns were too often one-dimensional, and their lack of options made life more difficult for Kizer, who led the NFL with 22 interceptions

Indianapolis Colts general manager Chris Ballard keeps responding to the same old questions about Andrew Luck with the same old answers.

No, he's not concerned. Yes, Luck's recovery remains on track. And, of course, Ballard expects to see his star quarterback taking snaps this season.

Now Ballard is doing more than just talking. He's actually building his draft strategy around Luck's expected return from a partially torn labrum in his throwing shoulder.

"We traded the third pick of the draft to move back to six," Ballard said Friday. "I thought that said we were pretty confident with where he's at."

Last month, Indy swapped first-round picks with the New York Jets and added two second-round picks this year and another in 2018.

There are plenty of reasons for doubts about Luck's status Joseph Noteboom Jersey Rams , though.

He still hasn't started throwing full-size footballs and there's no indication he will participate in any of the Colts' offseason work. The last time Luck threw a regulation ball was in October 鈥?until lingering soreness forced him to be shut down and seek additional medical opinions before moving his rehab to Europe.

The problem then, Luck has said, was he tried to expedite the recovery. Instead, it cost him the rest of the season.

If he starts Sept. 9 against Cincinnati, as hoped, it would mark the first time he's played in 21 months 鈥?and the first time since Ballard accepted Indy's job in January 2017 that he's actually seen Luck in uniform.

Again, Ballard declined to provide a projected timetable for Luck's expected progression.

To critics, all this sounds familiar. It's the essentially the same commentary Ballard provided 12 months ago. This time could be different.

"A lot of the exercises he's doing are conducive to the same thing (throwing)," Ballard said. "I think it (a setback) would have shown up with the work he's doing from a strength standpoint, absolutely."

So far, the prognosis is promising.

This month Authentic Rasmus Dahlin Jersey , Luck said he felt better, was in a better place mentally and was confident he will be better when he comes back.

Teammates like Pro Bowl receiver T.Y. Hilton and longtime left tackle Anthony Castonzo say they also have detected changes.

"I think he realizes that all he's got to worry about is getting back," Castonzo said Tuesday. "He doesn't have to worry about what anybody else is thinking about it and any of the outside noise because he's doing absolutely everything and more to get back. And I think he realizes that and is able to be at a little bit more peace with it."

But the most encouraging news might be Ballard seems content with either of his two game plans 鈥?playing Luck or using Jacoby Brissett until Luck returns.

It's the reason Ballard has continued to turn down trade offers for Brissett and why he may be willing to move down again in the first round next Thursday.

Ballard said the Colts have deemed eight nonquarterbacks as premium players, enough to give them some flexibility if the right offer is made.

"When you see someone that may be a future Hall of Famer, those guys are hard to pass up," Ballard said. "That's why going back, the compensation would have to be right. And then we'd have to identify guys in the same general area that we think we could get at six."

The good news for Indy is most analysts expect as many as four quarterbacks to go in the top 10 and could make their pick a key chip in the NFL's annual poker game.

And if Luck actually is healthy, Indy could hit the jackpot for the second time in the draft.

"Right now, none," Ballard said when asked if he's gotten any calls about the No. 6 pick. "It will start next week. I think you have to look at the quarterbacks. I don't know that anyone knows what's going to happen except maybe (Cleveland GM John) Dorsey. The first couple hours will be fascinating just to see how the quarterbacks peel off."
