Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett is the consensus No. 1 prospect in this year's NFL draft, and the Cleveland Browns don't want to give up the possibility of drafting him. Head coach Hue Jackson affirmed that the Browns will not be trading away their No. 1 overall pick. Jackson did say, however, that Cleveland would be open to trading the No. 12 overall pick.

Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam said the team has not discussed the possibility of signing free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick (49ers), but he would be open to pursuing Kaepernick if the front office were interested in him.
Fantasy Tip: Kaepernick has not received much interest during free agency but could be an option for teams after the 2017 NFL Draft. He would have a decent chance to start in 2017 if he signed with the Browns but would not be more than a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo remains of interest to the Cleveland Browns. Cleveland could continue to pursue a trade this weekend at the NFL owners meetings. As reported previously, Garoppolo is not expected to be traded. Neither side has acknowledged that a possible deal is or is not in the works.
Fantasy Tip: The asking price for Garoppolo is high and would likely cost the Browns at least one of their two first-round picks. Of course, the Patriots could easily keep Garoppolo as the heir apparent to Tom Brady if they believe Garoppolo is worth as much as they're asking for him. As for the immediate future, neither Garoppolo nor any Cleveland quarterback is close to QB1 territory.

Cleveland Browns QB Brock Osweiler will remain a Brown "until he's not", according to head coach Hue Jackson. "He is (going to be part of the Browns). Obviously, he's a player on our team and we're going to treat him just like we do all of our other quarterbacks until he's not. … He's a guy that's gonna come in and compete. We haven't had an opportunity to meet with him … but once we start our offseason program, phase one, we'll get a chance to know him and he'll get to know us," Jackson said.
Fantasy Tip: It is anyone's guess as to whether or not Cleveland will draft a quarterback on the first two days of the draft - a move that would probably signal the end of Osweiler's short stay - or if he'll eventually get a shot to start. Either way, owners can safely avoid him in fantasy in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon's issues off the field have ruined a promising career. He will likely receive another shot in the NFL, but he is nothing more than a late-round lottery ticket.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon has not played since 2014 because of suspensions but there is a chance he could play in 2017. He has played well when he has been on the field but has been suspended multiple times because of substance abuse. He will be a risky option in all fantasy leagues and could only be a No. 5 receiver in deeper leagues if he plays.
