Browns trade Carlos Hyde to Jaguars

The Browns are shipping their starting running back to Jacksonville.

Carlos Hyde has been traded from the Browns to the Jaguars, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The Jaguars find themselves in need of a running back because Leonard Fournette is battling a hamstring injury and Corey Grant has been placed on injured reserve.

Hyde is leading the Browns with 114 carries for 382 yards, but both Duke Johnson and Nick Chubb have been very effective when replacing Hyde. Now Johnson and Chubb will share the load with Hyde on the way out.

It seems unlikely that Hyde would be able to play for the Jaguars on Sunday against the Texans, but he could become their starter starting next week, and for as long as Fournette is out.

  1. I guess Dorsey got tired of hue saying “we need to get the ball to duke and chubb more”, and it not happening. Now they HAVE to get them the ball more.😂

  2. hyde is a pro. will miss him here in cleveland. under appreciated because of Chubb coming up behind him. ran hard. Good luck Carlos!

  4. As a Jaguars fan I like the move a LOT. But it really makes you wonder what management is thinking about Fournette. Would they really do this if they expect Fournette to be back at full strength after the bye?

  5. I like Hyde, but fantastic move by Dorsey. “You don’t know how to get your two best running backs (Chubb and Duke) more touches, Hue? Here let me help.”

    I think Hue is gone if he doesn’t win seven games. This is an obvious gesture of dissatisfaction by the GM.

    And Hyde is a good back: no dis intended. Glad he was here.

    Dude is on his way to 1,000 yards and 14 TDs and he was only moved for a 5th round pick???
    —————————————————————————————

    He’s averaging 3.4 ypc, which is god-awful for a starting RB. Total stats are deceiving. Hyde has always been mediocre. He got chance after chance to be the top back with the 49ers, but he never broke out. Because he’s not very good.

    That’s one way to get Chubb and Duke more touches!

    The owner and GM were like oh for the love of god do we have to trade Hyde before Hue plays Chubb???

    Fair point.

  9. Maybe he got out of Cleveland in time to salvage his career! But didn’t the Jags just signed Jamaal Charles?

  10. Check out Hyde’s contract he signed with CLE, that’s why they only got 5th for him, $$$ contract Jags absorb.

  11. The only person who need to be concerned of this move is Fournette. Yeldon is a good backup RB who can start occasionally. If Hyde proves to be effective and capable of playing games I can see Jacksonville fading Fournette out as he is always ailing with soft tissue injuries.

  12. Fournette and Hyde in playoffs is going to be hard to stop , cold weather ball control running down hill

  13. Guess Browns think Nick Chubb won’t get hurt the rest of the year … You think after getting rid of their WRs, they’ve learn that depth matters. Browns just doing Browns thing regardless of who’s in charge.

  14. Fans don’t seem to understand that pass protection is why most rookie RBs don’t play much. With this trade, this more than likely indicates that Chubb is ready to do it consistently and not get Mayfield killed as demonstrated in practice.

  15. I wish the eagles woulda got in on this trade. I like Carlos Hyde. Above average back. Not great at anything but pretty good at everything. Good all around back.

  16. They had to do something with Fragile Fournette hurt all the time. Hyde for a fifth-rounder probably isn’t that bad of a price to pay considering it’s an in-season trade. Too bad they didn’t go get one in free agency…along with some more offensive line help. Oh, and a QB who won’t lose every game for them would help too.

  17. I guess Hue and Dorsey were tired of having to remind Todd Haley to actually use his other running backs when the offense was struggling.

    Newsflash to the “blame the head coach” crew, the offensive play caller decides the offensive personnel around the QB not the head coach and that’s Todd Haley. The head coach has been preaching “we need to use Chubb and Duke more” for three weeks now so Haley has no choice but to use them now. It blows my mind with the questionable at best play calling that people actually think Haley should be head coach instead of Hue. He’s not even a better offensive coordinator than Hue. Even Hue knew “put running back with higher yards per carry and guy who lead the team in receiving in game”. This seems to be hard for Haley to figure out.

    So he goes from Ohio to Florida. SCORE
    ————————————————-
    Yep, it snows in Ohio for a few months out of the year, we have potholes. We can fix those, but you can’t fix sinkholes and my house is still standing after a snowstorm. Hurricanes not so much when your house is gone. Yay Florida. SCORE.

    Buddy, I’d rather live in a tent on the beach than a mansion in Cleveland. But that’s just me I’m sure…

  20. I’m somewhat surprised that the Eagles didn’t trade for Hyde.

    They wanted to trade him to someone they wouldn’t see in the playoffs, lol.

    Leather skin anyone?

  22. IMO the Browns’ best player this season so far. Lordie, I don’t get this one. He must’ve slept with someone’s wife or something.

  23. Imo,I like the trade.hue has been saying for a few weeks we need to get Chubb and Duke more touches.seems hue and Haley didn’t do this.dorsey seen this and forced their hand.only regret is could have been better than a 5. I believe in dorsey.plus 12 million saved in cap space

  24. And while I’m at it,they should have traded Haley too.a reverse on your own 4 yard line? Pass twice on third and two on opponents 35 yard line? Give me a freaking break

  25. Roger that!

    So they wouldnt trade him to the eagles for fear of seeing them in the playoffs? Do you even follow football?

  26. Dr. Carlos and Mr. Hyde i only getting 3.5 yards per carry. No wonder they are trading him. His replacements should average about the same when they face defenses playing for the run on first down. LOL

  27. Good move to get Chubb and Duke more touches, but for everyone saying Hue is the reason Chubb and Duke didn’t get the touches. Dorsey brought Hyde in and Haley is the OC. The players like playing for Hue and the owner likes him, so hate him if you want, but he’s going nowhere unless they lose, and what Browns fan wants that?

    Hyde is a pretty good back, not sure why Jacksonville would make this trade though. My Niners should have kept him.
    ————————————————————————-
    Not sure why the niners didn’t keep him. Especially when every whiner fan knew without
    a doubt that you guys were going to completely take over the NFC West and make a serious Super Bowl run and then make every Pats fan jealous,because,they would then know that you guys
    had swindled all of New England, and that you guys had the true GOAT,and then Brady’s girlfriend would leave him for Jimmy Jesus,because she would then know too , that there had never been a really,really true GOAT, until Jimmy ” by gosh” Jesus came to town.
    xxoo-Every Rams fan in the world.

    Is that what we are doing? Blaming HAley? He’s a complete tool for sure but Haley isn’t responsible for 1-31. Hue is. This team has some talent but he is a garbage coach. I see the miracles SeanMcdermott has done in Buffalo and even he would have the browns in the playoff hunt. Hue is a clueless dolt and like most every coach, when he had good qb play his teams played well. He’s not some qb guru.
