The Cleveland Browns had plenty of draft picks to offer if they wanted to make a play for Jimmy Garoppolo before the trade deadline on Tuesday, but Garoppolo ended up being sent to the San Francisco 49ers for a second-round pick. That has left many fans pondering a very reasonable question. Did the Browns even try? A source told Mark Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com that the Browns made a “half-hearted attempt” to work out a trade with the New England Patriots during the NFL Draft. While there were reports that they were willing to give up at least one first-round pick, Cabot was told that was not the case. NFL Network previously reported that the Browns only offered a second-round pick. Fast forward to this week, when the Browns could have offered the Patriots any one or multiple of their two first-round picks and three second-round picks that they have in 2018.
