Perhaps the most surprising move in the early days of this season’s free agency period was Cleveland picking up Carlos Hyde in free agency. Clearly Hyde was an upgrade over last year’s main runner Isaiah Crowell. The surprising part was that after last Friday’s trade-apalooza, it seemed the Browns were positioning themselves to take Penn State runner Saquon Barkley, either at the No. 1 or No. 4 picks. No that seems a bit more murky.
So let’s examine all the players that are involved with the fallout of the move.
Carlos Hyde, RB CLE
Hyde inked a 3-year, $15 million deal Wednesday. His opportunities have been limited the past couple of seasons thanks to San Francisco’s struggles to put up points, causing the team to pass while playing from behind.
