Cleveland Plain Dealer, Sept 20, 2013
...the Cleveland Browns have sent Joe Thomas to the Green Bay Packers for the Packers’ first round selection in the upcoming 2014 NFL draft. Thomas learned of the trade while listening to a news segment on Canton’s 1060AM Living Bread Radio. He has yet to hear from the team, but is hoping they will send him a twitter note to confirm the trade.
...fresh off the Joe Thomas trade to the Green Bay Packers, Cleveland has continued their roster slashing. Cornerback Joe Haden was traded to the Washington Redskins for a fourth round pick in the 2014 NFL draft, and a conditional late round pick in 2015. The trade now gives the Browns 12 picks in the upcoming 2014 NFL draft, plus any compensatory picks the NFL will award them.

...not to be outdone by Cleveland’s push to create the worst roster in the NFL, the Jacksonville Jaguars have traded running back Maurice Jones-Drew to the New York Giants for a third round pick in the 2014 NFL draft. The Jaguars immediately announced that wide receiver Justin Blackmon had been traded to the San Francisco 49ers for a second round pick in the 2014 NFL draft, and a third round pick in 2015.
...Jaguars officials could not be reached for comment, but team mascot Jaxson De Ville asked fans to rally around the team as they attempt to hold off the Browns for the right to be the worst team in the NFL this year, and acquire the #1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Ok, so maybe these news clippings are fictional. Or maybe just a bit of premonition at work, to break the story before it happens?
