2. Tyrell Williams, Wide Receiver
Before trading for Odell Beckham, Jr., the Browns were linked to former Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Tyrell Williams who clearly intrigued them with his mix of size and speed.
Listed at 6-foot-4 and 205-pounds, Williams averaged 16.3 yards per reception during his four seasons with the Chargers and had a 1,059-yard campaign in 2016. In addition to his 1,000-yard season that year, Williams scored a career-high seven touchdowns.
Once he was on the open market, he was looked at by several teams but landed with the Oakland Raiders — who are now moving to Las Vegas this season. Williams ended up earning a four-year contract worth $44 million and once Antonio Brown froze his own feet and got punted out of town, he became the No 1 wideout for the Raiders.
Williams was solid last season for Oakland, recording 651 yards and six touchdowns on 42 receptions. He accomplished those numbers in 12 games as he missed time with a foot injury.
Even with the success he had in 2019, the Raiders could be willing to move on from Williams. They dedicated a lot of resources to the wide receiver position in the offseason as they drafted Henry Ruggs and Bryan Edwards plus they could use Lynn Bowden, Jr. in the slot as well. Throw Hunter Renfrow in the mix and their trio of tight ends and suddenly there might not be enough passes for everyone.
In Cleveland, Williams would give them some much-needed height on the outside and would fit very well with Baker Mayfield’s downhill passing.
