Browns trade QB Cody Kessler to Jaguars

For the third time this offseason, the Cleveland Browns have made a trade centered on a quarterback.

The Browns have agreed to send backup Cody Kessler to the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for a conditional 2019 seventh-round draft pick.

We are excited about the opportunity to add Cody as depth to our quarterback position, Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell said in a statement. Despite being just 24 years old, Cody has already seen NFL game action and was very effective as a rookie in 2016, showing accuracy and efficiency in posting a quarterback rating of 90-plus. From our research and through getting to know Cody during the draft process, we know he is a smart, tough and competitive young man and we expect him to be a great addition to our quarterback and offensive meeting rooms.

The Santa Clara County District Attorney’s office told NBC Sports Bay Area on Wednesday no decision has yet been made whether to pursue criminal charges against Foster, who was arrested last month at his Los Gatos home for alleged domestic violence, threats and possession of an assault weapon.

York said he has not talked with Foster about the incidents of this offseason, including a January arrest for possession of marijuana in Alabama. However, general manager John Lynch and coach Kyle Shanahan have spoken with Foster on multiple occasions.

We’d love Reuben to be on this team, York said on the final day of the NFL owners meetings. And we’d love him to participate for us, but if he’s not doing things off the field that allow us to be able to rely on him – or he’s doing something that we’re not comfortable with off the field and it’s proven that’s what’s going on — I think the guys have said then you’re just going to have to move on.patriots_110-223x223
