Cleveland Browns Botch QB Trade With Bengals Because The Team Was Busy Celebrating



The Cleveland Browns had a deal with the Cincinnati Bengals to acquire quarterback AJ McCarron but failed to complete the trade because the Browns did not notify the NFL of their approval before Tuesday’s 4 p.m. deadline.

Apparently the team were too busy celebrating the trade and forgot to call it in before the deadline, according to ESPN’s Aaron Goldhammer.

According to, the teams agreed to the trade at 3:55 p.m. and while the Bengals notified the league before the deadline, the Browns didn’t. Instead, the Browns sent in paperwork just after the deadline and told the NFL there should be a grace period. The league did not grant the Browns a grace period.
