The Cleveland Browns have traded former 2015 first-round pick Danny Shelton to the New England Patriots for a conditional mid-round selection, according to a report from ESPN. "And there it is, the fourth Browns" trade in less than 24 hours.
While the Pittsburgh Steelers no longer have to worry about facing Shelton twice in 2018 as a member of the Browns, they'll still likely face him once during the regular season as the Patriots will play Pittsburgh during the regular season once again.
The Browns selected Shelton with the 12th overall pick in the 2015 National Football League draft. The Browns also have second-year tackle Trevon Coley (61% of the snaps), who started 15 games opposite Shelton, and 2017 sixth-round Caleb Brantley, who had two sacks and one fumble recovery despite playing only 20% of the snaps and starting one game. His best season was in 2016 when he played in all 16 games and recorded 59 tackles.
The Browns made 10 first-round picks between 2009 and 2015. However, since he was a first-round pick, the Patriots do have the option to pick up a fifth year at an increased price.
The 6-foot-2, 335-pound Shelton is slated to earn a base salary of $2.03 million in 2018.
Shelton specializes as a run-stuffing defensive tackle.
New England has been desperate for help on the defensive line, and the addition of the big-bodied Shelton.
Shelton will join Malcom Brown, Lawrence Guy, Adam Butler and Vincent Valentine on the Patriots' defensive tackle depth chart.
