CLEVELAND (WCMH) — The Cleveland Browns are reportedly adding to its receiving core by trading for a former first-round pick.

Multiple reports Saturday afternoon indicated that Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy will be traded to the Browns for two 2024 draft selections — a fifth-rounder and a sixth-rounder. The former Alabama wideout looks set to join another former Crimson Tide receiving star in Amari Cooper, who netted over 1,200 receiving yards to lead the Browns last season.

Jeudy was selected 15th overall by the Broncos in the 2020 NFL Draft after winning a national title with Alabama in 2017 and winning the Fred Biletnikoff Award as the nation’s top receiver in 2018. In four seasons with Denver, the 24-year-old has caught 211 passes for over 3,000 yards and 11 touchdowns.

The reported exit of Jeudy continues turnover in the Broncos offense with starting quarterback Russell Wilson set to be released next week.

Cleveland went 11-6 last season and clinched a Wild Card berth with four different quarterbacks picking up victories in the regular season. The Browns fell on Super Wild Card weekend 45-14 on the road to the Houston Texans.

The Browns currently do not own a first round pick in April’s NFL Draft. The team’s earliest selection is in the second round with the 54th overall pick.
