BEREA, Ohio -- The Cleveland Browns are wheeling and dealing.

In an apparent effort to get as many draft picks as possible, the Browns traded down in the first round once again to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Cleveland moved the No. 17 pick for Tampa's No. 19 overall pick and a sixth-rounder (No. 191 overall). The Bucs then took Kansas State quarterback Josh Freeman.

Earlier Saturday, the Browns shipped their No. 5 overall pick to the New York Jets for the Jets' first- and second-round picks, along with three players. There have been two trades so far in the first round and Cleveland has been involved in both.

(Update: Cleveland traded again with the Philadelphia Eagles for their No. 21 pick.)
