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 [url=http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/customized]Customized Washington Redskins Jerseys[/url] , 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 [url=http://www.jetsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-thomas-rawls-jersey]Jets Thomas Rawls Jersey[/url] ," 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, when he completed the contract he signed as a rookie. He was by far the highest-profile Dolphins player eligible for free agency [url=http://www.ravensfootballauthentics.com/robert-griffin-iii-jersey-authentic]Youth Robert Griffin III Jersey[/url] , 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 [url=http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/kolton-miller-jersey-cheap]Cheap Kolton Miller Jersey[/url] , 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, 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 [url=http://www.patriotscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-danny-shelton-jersey]Authentic Danny Shelton Jersey[/url] , 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

AP Sports Writer Tom Withers in Cleveland contributed to this report.

Fox Sports will broadcast the NFL draft this season, along with the NFL's usual television partners of ESPN and NFL Network.

A person familiar with the decision says Fox will show the same feed as the NFL Network. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the league and Fox haven't announced the decision.

ESPN will still air its own draft feed but the person said the current rights deal for the draft allowed for the inclusion of another broadcaster.

Pro Football Talk first reported the deal.

Fox won the rights to broadcast 11 Thursday night football games in a deal with the NFL last month, taking over a package that was previously shared by NBC and CBS.
