As the Cleveland Browns toil around the .500 mark, general manager John Dorsey could make one of these five trades to save the team’s season.

The Cleveland Browns find their season on the brink as a campaign filled with hype and expectations has been filled with disappointment.

The Browns are only 2-3, but the way they’ve lost has been demoralizing. Two of Cleveland’s defeats have been by 30 and 28 points, respectively. Say what you want about Hue Jackson, but he didn’t even lose that badly.

Baker Mayfield‘s star is fading as the quarterback truly looks to have regressed from a breakout rookie season in which he set the record for touchdown passes from a first-year field general.

There’s still time for the Browns to turn things around, though, which means John Dorsey‘s got to feverishly work the trade market.

Easier said than done, as the career football man is watching the same games as you and me. He can see Mayfield hearing footsteps as inconsistency on his offense line has seemingly made the quarterback neurotic in the pocket.

When looking at these trades, I tried to find realistic candidates.

Without further ado, here’s five trades that can help save the Browns’ season. The deadline to make a deal is Tuesday, Oct. 29 at 4 p.m.
