Browns trade Hyde to Jaguars for 5th-round pick

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Cleveland Browns have traded running back Carlos Hyde to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Cleveland had seemed pleased with Hyde, but his departure clears the way for rookie Nick Chubb to be the team's primary back.

Chubb will nearly certainly get the nod as the starter while giving up much of the passing-down work to Duke Johnson. He just doesn't do enough of the things modern running backs need to do.

The Browns, 2-3-1, will take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 7.

I'll break down the matchup, recent production and a few other key stats that jump off the page for Chubb in Week 7.

While Hyde is owned in nearly every league, one player who stands to benefit the most from the trade may not be. Most of those snaps are expected to go to Chubb. Chubb made a negative play into a double-digit gain.

It's about time. Nick Chubb time, that is... That's something everyone from Johnson to offensive coordinator Todd Haley to my 69-year-old Browns fan mother in Vermilion has been clamoring for all season. The 49ers didn't make much of a run to keep him.

That one play may have summarized the difference between Chubb and Hyde.

Hyde has started in five of his team's six games this season and has produced well. He's scored five touchdowns this season, but is averaging a career-low 3.4 yards-per-carry, which is 0.5 yards worse than his previous career low set last season.
