Elijah Moore trade grades for Browns, Jets: Cleveland buys low on talented WR

The New York Jets have traded wide receiver Elijah Moore to the Cleveland Browns for a second-round pick (No. 42) and a third-rounder (No. 74)[1][3].

The Browns will acquire Moore’s team-friendly contract, which has two years and just $3.4 million remaining.

The move could end up as a win for all parties involved.

Moore was drafted at No. 34 overall in the 2021 NFL Draft and showcased sky-high potential during his rookie season in New York.

However, his usage dropped as he struggled to develop chemistry with Zach Wilson, and he demanded a trade just ahead of the 2022 NFL trade deadline.

The Jets elected to keep him but ultimately decided to trade him to the Browns.

The Jets will receive the equivalent of the No. 66 pick in return for Moore, which is a full-round drop from his draft slot in 2021.

However, they now have back-to-back selections in the second round of the upcoming draft, which will make it easier for them to unload one for Aaron Rodgers if they choose to do so.

Overall, it seems that both teams benefit from this trade. The Browns acquire a talented wide receiver with untapped potential on a team-friendly contract, while the Jets recoup valuable draft picks that could help them land their desired quarterback in Rodgers or another top prospect in the upcoming draft.
