The Cleveland Browns dropped their preseason home opener to the Buffalo Bills on Friday night Youth Emmanuel Ogbah Jersey , the club’s first preseason loss since Sept. 1, 2016.Here are three quick takeaways from the game.The running game was soundA week after struggling to move the ball on the ground against the New York Giants, the Browns made an effort early in the game against the Bills to run the ball.And it was fun to watch.The Browns put up 164 rushing yards, averaging 5.1 yards per carry, with the main trio of Carlos Hyde, Nick Chubb and Duke Johnson combining for 144 yards and averaging six yards a carry. Hyde and Chubb each had a touchdown run as well. While the backs got the stats, head coach Hue Jackson also acknowledged the play of the offensive line, according to clevelandbrowns.com:If the Browns can run the ball that way during the regular season, and stay committed to it during games, this offense is going to be a fun one to watch.The passing game? Not so muchWhile the running game thrived, the passing offense took a step back against the Bills. Quarterbacks Tyrod Taylor and Baker Mayfield combined to finish just 11-of-20 for 97 yards. They didn’t turn the ball over Youth Larry Ogunjobi Jersey , which is nice, but they also struggled to keep the offense moving consistently after the opening drive. A trio of dubious offensive pass interference penalties did not help the cause, and the pass blocking was less than ideal at times, especially from the second unit, which are areas that need taken care of, as quarterback Tyrod Taylor told clevelandbrowns.com:The Browns emphasized the run game last week in practice and it paid off. Hopefully they can keep doing the same with the passing game to balance out the offense.The first-team defense was dominantThe best performance of the night came from the first-team defense, which completely dominated the Bills offense and quarterback A.J. McCarron. Defensive end Myles Garrett was causing all kinds of problems, defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi had a sack, linebackers Genard Avery and Mychal Kendricks were a nuisance, and the secondary was sound.Things started to fall apart once the second- and third-team units got into the game, which took some of the shine off the night Youth Duke Johnson Jr Jersey , but the top line is starting to show off its potential, as Jackson told clevelandbrowns.com:The game highlighted the fact that the talent level has certainly increased for the Browns as the new guys are blending well with the second- and third-year players that have built the foundation. But it also showed that there is a pretty significant drop off when the starters are not in the game, which given the inevitable injuries that hit teams during the regular season, presents a problem. The Browns next preseason game takes place on August 23 at 8 p.m., when they host the Philadelphia Eagles at FirstEnergy Stadium. The question isn’t really should the Cleveland Browns trade for receiver Amari Cooper, it really boils down to what it’ll take to pry him away from the death-spiraling Oakland Raiders.According to The Athletic’s Jay Glazer, they’re looking for a first-round draft pick. After shipping Khalil Mack to Chicago earlier this season for two No. 1 picks and a third-rounder, new head coach John Gruden—who signed a 10-year deal to return to the NFL to coach the Raiders—is burning the team to ashes.The Browns are in a good position to snag a premier player, but only if the price is right. They currently possess their own first- through sixth- rounders in the 2019 draft, adding a third-rounder from New England from their Danny Shelton swap, two fifth-rounders from sending Josh Gordon to New England and Carlos Hyde to Jacksonville White Jarvis Landry Jersey , and a conditional seventh-rounder from shipping Cody Kessler to the Jags.An important issue when discussing trade value is control. After getting taken No. 4 overall in 2015, Cooper inked a deal that his him under contract through the 2019 season. He’ll make a whopping $13.92 million next season in the final year of the deal. So, if the Browns traded for him, they wouldn’t be looking at a “rental” in terms of control.Now we have to look at ability, which he has been both good and bad during this three-plus NFL seasons. His potential and eventual salary are also some considerations.Cooper has looked like a dynamic playmaker at the receiver position, that’s not really debatable. But he has shown inconsistencies, including a 15 percent drop rate in his career, although he has only two so far this season. And in 19 of his 52 career games, Cooper has amassed less than 30 yards while receiving only about 4 targets per contest, according to Pro Football Focus’ Connor Price. Price pointed out the discrepancy exists in his usage in those poor performances, in that Cooper averaged over nine targets in all his other outings.But the biggest reason to trade for Cooper is his playmaking ability. Cooper creates separation and can deliver big chunk plays Youth Jabrill Peppers Jersey , both with the ball in his hands and without. He’s a shifty and underrated performer in space, something the Browns are sorely lacking outside Duke Johnson.According to Price, Cooper ranks fourth in the NFL in separation, defined as having one step or more distance between him and the closest defender. He’s achieved that in 80 percent of his 30 targets in 2018.This, to me, isn’t a question of talent. It’s a matter of finding the right value. If the Raiders would be willing to part with him after failing to secure their initial demands, the Browns could very well be contenders to acquire him. Cooper would provide the Browns a legitimate outside threat who can make things happen, is under contract for the next 25 games, and he would be well worth the eventual extension price tag he’d demand.The only remaining question is how much is too much to offer.
