BREAKING: According to Ken Palmer of The Giant Insider, the Browns have dealt RB Reuben Droughns to the New York Giants for fleet WR Tim Carter.

TheOBR.com relayed news of the transaction to our site visitors in the Watercooler earlier this afternoon.

Giants GM Jerry Reese confirmed to TGI that the trade was “done, pending physicals.”

Droughns, a seven-year vet, is coming off a 758-yard campaign in Cleveland, his second season with the Browns. Droughns surpassed the magical 1,000-yard mark in both his final season in Denver (2004, when he had 1,240 yards) and his first season with the Browns (1,232 yards). The 5-11, 220-pounder has a 3.9-yards per carry average on 844 career totes. The Oregon product has also caught 116 passes for 940 yards in his career.

As for the injury-prone Carter, he’s been nothing short of an enigma in New York, as he was never able to harness his incredible speed and athletic ability. In five seasons with the Giants, Carter only caught 72 passes with a season high of 26 in 2003.
