Browns Made the Worst Trade in Sports History

Monday on 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe, Jonas Knox, Brady Quinn and LaVar Arrington react to the latest reports that the NFL is pushing for an indefinite suspension of Deshaun Watson and won't accept anything less than a full season.

Brady Quinn: "This is a prime example of why some organizations are just dumpster fires. Even when it's talented, even when they've made a recent playoff run and it looks optimistic, this is why they can't sustain itself, because they go make the type of move they did this offseason, obviously not having all the information... Like, no one has ever handled this sort of situation before in any professional sports league. It is so unique, and yet the Browns took the chance to sign this dude to the biggest contract in NFL history, thinking they were good. I look back and you see a number of organizations that are just gonna struggle, and it's hard for me not to feel like this organization is always gonna struggle."
Jonas Knox: "This is the worst trade-slash-signing in history because it's not like signing a player who goes to a team and just falls off a cliff... All of this was avoidable. You didn't have to make the deal for him and give up what you did, but you did knowing the 22 lawsuits were out there. And you burned the bridge with the quarterback that won you a playoff game in Pittsburgh."
LaVar Arrington: "And you reset the market for every quarterback in the league with a guy who may not even play another game. I think you'd be hard pressed to find a worse deal ever done in sports."
