The Cleveland Browns apparently made a huge mistake at the NFL trade deadline

The NFL trade deadline closed Tuesday afternoon at 4:00 p.m. ET. Several high-profile players are headed to new teams.

Cleveland and Cincinnati attempted to make a trade involving quarterback AJ McCarron.

However, it appears Cleveland may have sent the trade into the NFL office too late.
