The Browns will lose five starters on the offensive line, two starting defensive ends, two backup defensive backs and a backup wide receiver in this week’s trade deadline deal.
The team will also lose two of its best linebackers, the team’s top wide receiver and a veteran cornerback.
The Browns traded cornerback Corey Graham to the Carolina Panthers for the No. 1 overall pick, and cornerback Darrelle Revis to the New York Jets for the fifth-year option on his contract.
Graham was the Browns’ leading tackler last season, ranking third among all cornerbacks.
The Jets are the only team that traded up for Graham, and they got a steal in return.
They also moved up from No. 4 to No. 3 to get Revis.
The trade is likely to cause more headaches for the Browns this season.
Cleveland is expected to be one of the NFL teams to play without quarterback Josh McCown for the first time in six years.
It’s unclear if the Browns will use McCown or if they will start him at some point this season or when they re-sign McCown.
McCown, a seventh-round pick last year, has missed most of training camp due to a shoulder injury.
The team is hoping he’ll be ready for the regular season.
McCown, who signed a five-year, $60 million contract extension with the Jets in October, could also miss at least a portion of the season with a shoulder issue.
The Patriots, who have won six of seven, were dealt a package of players including defensive end Jabaal Sheard, cornerback Stephon Gilmore and running back Stevan Ridley.
It also included cornerback Marcus Roberson, a sixth-round draft pick.
The Eagles got defensive end Jordan Hicks from the New Orleans Saints for a sixth round draft pick and wide receiver Kenny Britt.
They added cornerback DeShawn Shead from the Pittsburgh Steelers for the seventh-rounder.
The Titans traded cornerback Bradley Roby to the Jacksonville Jaguars for a seventh round draft and linebacker Mike Adams.
They re-signed Adams to a three-year deal in the offseason.
The Jaguars traded cornerback Chris Clemons to the Cleveland Indians for the third-round selection and receiver A.J. Jenkins.
