The Cleveland Browns could possibly spend a late round draft pick on a sure-handed wide receiver, but it’s not a rookie. Instead, the Browns could send a draft pick to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for slot receiver Davone Bess.
Surprisingly, it looks like Bess is getting interest from more than one team.
Per Sean Jensen of the Chicago Tribune:
#Browns seriously considering a trade for Dolphins WR Davone Bess, according to a league source. Several teams in the mix.

If Bess were to be dealt, it likely wouldn’t bring in more than a fifth- or sixth-round pick in return.
Bess isn’t a player that will blow you away with his speed and he surely isn’t a big play threat, but he has that ability to move the chains and be a solid option over the middle.
If Cleveland is serious about this trade, there is no reason for either side to not get this deal done. It’s not a blockbuster trade by any means, but it can help out both sides.
