  • Former First Round Pick Traded To Patriots

On Friday, the Browns traded for Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry, Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor and Green Bay Packers cornerback Damarious Randall in separate deals.

The Pats, always active on the trade market, acquired defensive tackle Danny Shelton from the Cleveland Browns on Saturday, according to ESPN's Field Yates and Adam Schefter.

For the fourth time in less than 24 hours, the Cleveland Browns have pulled off a trade. Last season, the defensive tackle notched 34 tackles in 16 games, contributing to the Browns improved run defense previous year. In 2017, he ranked 19th in the league when it came to run defense among interior linemen.

Shelton specializes as a run-stuffing defensive tackle.

Last season, he recorded 33 tackles and one pass breakup in 14 games, where he showed his ability against the run. The 6-foot-2, 343-pound performer earned solid marks from Pro Football Focus the past two years. Shelton was a former first-round pick of the Browns and is coming off a strong season on a bad Browns team. The 24-year-old started in a total of 44 games over the past three years with the Browns.

For the Browns, Shelton's departure opens roster and cap space; he is due about $2 million in guaranteed base salary next year and has a fifth-year option for 2019. Most of the time when the Patriots make a deal like this, it turns out to be good for the team.

Overall trade grade: B+ for New England.


While we don't know at this moment how things will work out for the Browns, Belichick can pair Shelton along with another first-round pick from the Class of 2015 in defensive tackle Malcom Brown.
