BEREA, Ohio (AP) — While the Browns relaxed during the bye week, their fired former coach went back to work.
Hue Jackson's got a new gig.
And this strange season in Cleveland will take another odd turn Sunday when the Browns face the Bengals and Jackson, who somehow survived an 0-16 season and was only briefly unemployed before being hired last week as a special assistant to Cincinnati coach Marvin Lewis.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Browns safety Damarious Randall underestimated two things: the power of social media and passion of Cleveland fans.
Randall said Wednesday he never imagined that an innocent Twitter posting about the NBA Finals would blow up into a national story — and maybe something he lives to regret.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland Browns safety Damarious Randall better hope LeBron James' postseason excellence is over.
Randall promised on Twitter that if James and the Cavaliers upset the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals he would buy a jersey for anyone who re-tweeted his post. As of Tuesday afternoon, there were 334,000 re-tweets on Randall's account (@RandallTime).
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Browns exercised the fifth-year option on defensive back Damarious Randall, acquired during the offseason from Green Bay.
Cleveland traded quarterback DeShone Kizer and swapped draft picks on March 14 with the Packers for Randall. The 25-year-old is expected to play free safety for the Browns, allowing Jabrill Peppers to move to strong safety, where he played more at Michigan.
Randall was selected by Green Bay with the No. 30 overall pick in the 2015 draft.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Packers drafted what they needed most: a cornerback.
But what Green Bay also got by selecting Louisville's Jaire Alexander at No. 18 overall on Thursday night is a skilled defender and kick returner.
"We think he's versatile," Packers director of scouting Jon-Eric Sullivan said. "He can run — he's a 4.3 guy. He's got really good twitch, lateral agility. So, we do think he can play inside. He's very instinctive."
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — The Cleveland Browns traded their third quarterback of the offseason, sending Kevin Hogan to the Washington Redskins.
The teams announced the deal Friday that includes swapping sixth-round picks. Cleveland acquires the 188th pick from Washington for No. 205, which it previously acquired from New England for cornerback Jason McCourty.
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Browns signed free agent cornerback E.J. Gaines, the latest addition to a revamped secondary.
Gaines played last season for the Buffalo Bills. The 26-year-old will be reunited in Cleveland with Browns defensive coordinator Gregg Williams as the two previously worked together with the Los Angeles Rams.
The 26-year-old Gaines, who also met with the New York Jets, will bring speed and depth to the Browns.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Packers have signed free agent defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson and also acquired quarterback DeShone Kizer.
The team announced the moves a day after the opening of free agency.
Kizer was acquired in a trade with the Browns for cornerback Damarious Randall with drafts picks also involved.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Call him mobile, dynamic, proven or Buffalo's former quarterback. Don't dare label Tyrod Taylor anything else.
In his first official appearance since coming to Cleveland, Taylor, who ended the Bills' long playoff drought last season, was asked if he could be a one-year stopgap or "bridge" quarterback while the Browns develop a young QB.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Following four trades and a flurry of free-agent deals, the Cleveland Browns are looking better.
Maybe even good enough to win a game next season.
On the day one-of-a-kind left tackle Joe Thomas said goodbye after 11 stellar seasons, the Browns took the first steps without their perennial Pro Bowler, a player who might be replaced but never duplicated.
CLEVELAND (AP) — After one difficult season, the Browns threw DeShone Kizer away.
Cleveland traded its starting quarterback on Friday to the Green Bay Packers in exchange for cornerback Damarious Randall, a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press. The teams will also swap late-round picks, said the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because league rules prohibit teams from announcing any trades until next week.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Maybe the losing and laughing will finally stop. The Browns aren't fooling around.
With three stunning trades on the eve of free agency, Cleveland landed a proven starting quarterback, a game-breaking, three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver and a shut-down cornerback.
GREEN BAY PACKERS (7-9)
UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: S Morgan Burnett; LB Ahmad Brooks; CBs Davon House and Demetri Goodson; G Jahri Evans; LS Brett Goode; DL Quinton Dial; TE Richard Rodgers; OL Ulrick John; WR Jeff Janis.
RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS: LB Joe Thomas; P Jake Schum.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Outside linebackers Clay Matthews and Nick Perry are among five starters inactive for the Green Bay Packers' game Saturday night against the Minnesota Vikings.
Matthews (hamstring) and Perry (ankle/shoulder) each missed practice this week. The Packers are playing their first game since being eliminated from playoff contention.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers have listed cornerback Davon House as doubtful for their game Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, potentially weakening an already depleted position.
House hasn't practiced since hurting his shoulder during the 26-20 overtime win last week over Tampa Bay.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The early end to rookie Kevin King's season in Green Bay opened a path for Demetri Goodson to return to the secondary following a serious knee injury.
King's season is over after the team placed the cornerback on injured reserve Wednesday with a lingering shoulder injury.
The 6-foot-3 King, who was inactive for two of the past three games, gave the defense a mix of height and speed that they had been lacking at cornerback to play effective press coverage.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Packers left guard Lane Taylor is active for the Monday night game against Detroit, allowing the Packers to play their entire starting offensive line for just the second time this season.
Taylor is back after missing a game with an ankle injury.
Cornerbacks Damarious Randall (hamstring/illness) and Kevin King (back) are also active for the Packers against the Lions' potent passing game. They were each listed as questionable.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers are hoping that starting cornerback Damarious Randall has learned from a very visible mistake.
Randall was benched in the second half of the 35-14 win on Sept. 28 against the Chicago Bears. After a long weekend off for the team, Randall appeared to be back in the regular rotation at cornerback when the Packers returned to practice on Wednesday.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers are so confident in their new-and-improved cornerback group that they released the player who shadowed Atlanta Falcons star receiver Julio Jones in last season's NFC championship game.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Cornerback Damarious Randall and receiver Malachi Dupre will likely miss the Green Bay Packers' next preseason game with both players still in the concussion protocol.
Coach Mike McCarthy says he didn't see Randall or Dupre playing on the road on Saturday against the Washington Redskins. They were hurt in last week's preseason opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Packers have submitted videos to the NFL of hits by Eagles players that knocked out Green Bay's Malachi Dupre and Damarious Randall on separate plays.
Coach Mike McCarthy said Friday he expected the league to evaluate the hits from Thursday's preseason game from the perspective of player safety. When asked to clarify, McCarthy said, "If I turned them into the league, I don't think they're legal hits."
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — It didn't take long for the Green Bay Packers' first draft pick, cornerback Kevin King, to get his shot with the starting defense.
After Green Bay lined up with Davon House and LaDarius Gunter as the cornerbacks and Damarious Randall in the slot for Thursday's first day of training camp, the coaches switched things up on Friday, with House and King as the cornerbacks and Quinten Rollins in the slot.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy likes how the team's young players are performing in minicamp.
McCarthy said before Wednesday's workouts that the reps are critical for the young players. He singled out a few Packers including cornerback Damarious Randall, who McCarthy says has been outstanding this offseason.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers have released cornerback Sam Shields, who was never cleared from the concussion protocol after getting hurt in the season opener.
A seven-year veteran, Shields joined the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Miami in 2010. He played in 80 regular-season games, having entered the 2016 season as Green Bay's top cornerback.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Green Bay cornerback Quinten Rollins is missing his second straight playoff game in the divisional round against Dallas because of neck and concussion-related issues.
Fellow cornerback Damarious Randall is active Sunday after being added to the injury report with a foot issue following Saturday's practice.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Packers have added cornerback Damarious Randall to the injury report for Sunday's divisional playoff at Dallas with a foot issue, a potential setback for a secondary that has battled injuries most of the season.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Packers receiver Randall Cobb is active for the wild-card game against the New York Giants, giving quarterback Aaron Rodgers a full complement of targets in the Packers' potent passing attack.
Cobb missed the last two games with an ankle injury. He had nine catches for a season-high 108 yards when the teams met at Lambeau Field in Week 5.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Packers say Quinten Rollins will not play in their NFC wild-card game on Sunday against the New York Giants after the cornerback was evaluated this week for a concussion.
However Green Bay's battered secondary might get Damarious Randall back from a knee injury.
Randall was listed as questionable for the Giants game. The second-year cornerback was a full participant in the team's last practice on Thursday.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay's Quinten Rollins has been placed in the concussion protocol following his scary injury in the win last week over Detroit, while fellow Packers cornerback Damarious Randall practiced Wednesday.
Randall's status provided a bit of good news for the team's battered secondary ahead of the NFC playoff game on Sunday against the New York Giants and their talented receiving corps.
