Great move. We flipped #164 for #173 (a "trade down" if you will) and also gave the Browns what is effectively a Mr Irrelevant pick, #227. I read the cap hit is 2.3mil for one year, which isn't bad at all for a young veteran backup with genuine starts under his belt. Basically it's decent insurance if Colin misses a couple of weeks in the season.
I'm still worried that our defence needs attention and we're basically out of cap room, and I suspect we'll swamp DL and DB with draft picks hoping that a couple at least help out.
I think the hit is less than that actually.
When the player is traded the bonus accelerates to the original teams cap.
If I'm correct (AB?), ONly the base salary would count against the cap and I think that's 1.5 Mil.
