Browns Trade Tight End Randall Telfer To Chiefs For Linebacker Dadi Nicolas

first_imgThe Cleveland Browns have traded away tight end Randall Telfer to the Kansas City Chiefs, according to ESPN’s Field Yates. In return, Cleveland will receive linebacker Dadi Nicolas.Sources: the Browns are trading TE Randall Telfer to the Chiefs for LB Dadi Nicolas.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) May 2, 2018Telfer, who was a 2016 sixth-round draft selection, played in thirty games and started nineteen of them. During that time span, he brought in five passes for a total of forty yards and zero touchdowns. The former USC Trojan served primarily as a pass-blocker which explains his low statistics. But with veteran Darren Fells being signed in the off-season, Telfer’s days were numbered.Nicolas was Kansas City’s sixth-round pick in that same 2016 NFL Draft. The second-year linebacker missed all of last season after being placed on the PUP list in July. In 2016, Nicholas appeared in eleven games but didn’t record a tackle, interception, or sack.
