The Cleveland Browns roster shuffling is already underway and the final preseason game is still a couple hours away from kick off.

Thursday afternoon general manager John Dorsey swung a deal with the Buffalo Bills for some much needed help on the offensive line.

The Browns have acquired guard Wyatt Teller in addition to a 2021 seventh round draft pick in 2021. Cleveland sends a 2020 fifth and sixth round pick in return to Buffalo.

Teller could be the new starting right guard for the Browns on September 8. Right guard has been one of two key battles throughout training camp. The need for a right guard became a priority following the trade of Kevin Zeitler to the New York Giants. That is still a deal the Browns had to make considering they received Odell Beckham and Olivier Vernon in return.

Eric Kush is the starting right guard. The plan was for second year lineman Austin Corbett to take over as the starting right guard. Kush struggled in preseason game number three against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Corbett struggled all off season and has also spent time as a back up center this preseason.

Teller is 6-4, 315 and in his second NFL season out of Virginia Tech. Originally drafted by Buffalo in the fifth round of the 2018 draft, Teller started the Bills’ final seven regular season games last year.

The move could result in Kush being waived by Saturday’s 4 p.m. deadline for all teams to be down to 53-man rosters. The Browns signed Kush as a free agent this off season. The Browns are Kush’s fourth NFL team after playing his college football at division two California University of Pennsylvania. Dorsey drafted Kush in Kansas City back in 2013. Kush has also played for the St. Louis Rams and Chicago Bears.
