Carlos Hyde on Friday Hakeem Butler Jersey , adding a proven starter while Leonard Fournette progresses slowly from a strained right hamstring.The Browns (2-3-1) will get a 2019 fifth-round draft pick from the Jaguars in exchange for Hyde, who has 382 yards rushing and five touchdowns in his first season in Cleveland. Hyde signed a three-year, $15.25 million contract in March.The Jaguars (3-3) were willing to take on the financial commitment because leading rusher T.J. Yeldon will become a free agent at the end of this season. So will third-stringer Corey Grant, who was placed on injured reserve last week because of a foot injury. The Jaguars signed veteran Jamaal Charles to a one-year contract to replace Grant.Fournette was ruled out for Sunday’s game against Houston. It will be the fifth game he’s missed this season because of the nagging injury.More Jacksonville Jaguars newsJaguars expect DE Yannick Ngakoue’s holdout to be short-livedJaguars rookie safety Zedrick Woods submits retirement paperworkJalen Ramsey says Jaguars don’t plan to give him contract extension this seasonJaguars sign former UCF running back Taj McGowan for added depthJaguars QB Nick Foles to miss OTAs for undisclosed ‘personal reason’Cleveland had seemed pleased with Hyde, but his departure clears the way for rookie Nick Chubb to be the team’s primary back. He’s averaging nearly 10 yards per carry.Browns general manager John Dorsey continues to revamp the team’s roster and add picks. In addition to their own picks in the first six rounds, the Browns acquired a third-rounder from New England, Jacksonville’s fifth-rounder, another fifth-rounder from New England and a seventh-rounder from Jacksonville.The NFL trading deadline is Oct. 30.The Jaguars built their offense around Fournette, a bruising runner and the fourth overall pick in the 2017 draft. He tried to return after missing two games earlier this season but re-injured his hamstring and has been sidelined since. Yeldon Chris Lindstrom Jersey , meanwhile, is dealing with foot and ankle injuries.Making Jacksonville’s offense even more stagnant, the team is without its top two left tackles, its top two tight ends and its leading receiver from 2017.The 28-year-old Hyde was off to an impressive start in Cleveland. But he was taking playing time away from Chubb, who scored on two long touchdown runs at Oakland on Sept. 30 and enters Sunday’s game averaging 10.8 yards on 16 carries. Also, running back Duke Johnson had gone from being a dual threat to mainly a receiver. He’s had just 19 carries this season.Earlier this week, Browns coach Hue Jackson said it was vital to get Chubb more touches. Chubb had only three carries for 25 yards last week in a loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.“We need to get him more chances,” Jackson said. “But I think sometimes the game changes, you get behind and you need Duke Johnson out there because that is what he does well — catch the ball and run it. I think that is what you were seeing yesterday. As these games get a little closer http://www.lionsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jahlani-tavai-jersey , they do not get too far away and we can get up whatever that is, we do need to give Nick Chubb more carries.” DAVIE, Fla. (AP)Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase says he likes his revamped roster, and that includes the quarterbacks who will compete this summer to back up Ryan Tannehill.The Dolphins decided against drafting a quarterback , which leaves holdover David Fales and veteran newcomer Brock Osweiler to battle for the No. 2 job. Miami also signed veteran Bryce Petty as further insurance last week.Gase, speaking Thursday before the start of a rookie minicamp, said he’d be comfortable turning to Fales or Osweiler this season if Tannehill were sidelined by an injury.”If I wasn’t, we’d have somebody else here,” Gase said.Bringing in an emergency replacement wouldn’t be necessary Kyler Murray Jersey , Gase said. Last year he coaxed Jay Cutler out of retirement after Tannehill suffered a knee injury that forced him to miss the entire season.”There’s a lot of confidence as far as the guys we have,” Gase said.Osweiler signed a one-year contract in March after going 0-4 as the Denver Broncos’ starter last season. Gase was an assistant with the Broncos when Osweiler was a young reserve for them in 2012-14.Gase said a conversation with Osweiler convinced him a reunion would be wise.”Just hearing him and where he was mentally and what he wanted to accomplish and how he wanted to get his career rolling again … everybody in the building liked him, and I felt good about it,” Gase said.Fales had only two career completions before getting an extended tryout in the Dolphins’ 2017 finale against Buffalo, when he went 29 for 42 for 265 yards with one score and one interception.”I was impressed with some of the things he did in that game,” Gase said. ”Sometimes he makes plays and you’re not really sure how he did it.”Matt Moore wasn’t re-signed this offseason after seven years as the backup quarterback. The importance of the job is magnified because Tannehill has suffered two serious left injuries in the past 18 months, but he has been working out and cleared for offseason practices.”I see a guy who is very confident,” Gase said. ”He’s really smooth with what we’re doing in throwing sessions. He looks good to me.”The Dolphins went 6-10 last season and then parted with three players with Pro Bowl resumes: defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh , center Mike Pouncey and receiver Jarvis Landry. There were financial reasons http://www.arizonacardinalsteamonline.com/byron-murphy-jersey , and Gase also wanted a change in culture on a team that was undisciplined and wildly inconsistent in 2017.Gase believes the addition of such veterans as Frank Gore, Danny Amendola and Robert Quinn represents an upgrade.”You look at how the group gets along,” Gase said. ”How do they work together? Do they push each other? Are they all pulling the same direction? Do you have guys who are going to quit on you or push forward when things get hard?”The way we’re assembled right now, I like our makeup.”—
