The Idea of the Cleveland Browns making a significant trade before next month’s NFL trade deadline would’ve seemed crazy back in training camp.

The roster was loaded with talent and Cleveland looked to be taking the next step as a “good team” in the league that was going to win a lot more than they lost.

But at 3-3, the 2021 Cleveland Browns find themselves being very “average,” using coach Kevin Stefanski’s word. They can’t beat other good teams and have three wins against lousy teams.

A combination of injuries and lack of production have put the Browns in a place where they need to make some trades to overcome some injuries.

Stefanski’s facing the most adversity he’s ever known as a head coach, but the Browns have some winnable games on the schedule to round out October, leading into November.

The playoffs are still in the cards, but the roster needs tweaked.

So, with that in mind, here’s six trades general manager Andrew Berry should buy and sell on ahead of the Nov. 2 NFL trade deadline.
