  • Browns Trade DT Danny Shelton To Patriots

The decision to trade Shelton comes a day after the team acquired quarterback Tyrod Taylor from the Bills, wide receiver Jarvis Landry from the Dolphins and cornerback Damarious Randall from the Packers. This move is the fourth trade by new Browns general manager John Dorsey over the course of 24 hours. This past season, the Browns finished seventh in the National Football League in rushing defense.

Shelton, a Washington Huskies product, was the 12th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

With free agency almost here, the Patriots made a decision to strengthen their front seven with the acquisition of defensive tackle Danny Shelton from the Browns.

The departure of Shelton, 24, means all 10 of the Browns' first-round picks from 2009-2015 are gone from Cleveland.

While Shelton won't provide the Patriots with much a pass rusher, he is a massive man that is very strong against the run. In 2018, Shelton will be making just over $2 million. According to ESPN, his "skill-set should fit well" in the Patriots' young, run-focused hybrid defense. Though, Shelton did start 44 of a possible 48 games during that span.

With the Patriots deciding to move on from Alan Branch, and Ricky Jean Francois also announcing he was heading elsewhere, the team was a bit thin up front. The Patriots now must decide whether or not to pick up Shelton's fifth-year option for the 2019 season over the course of the next few weeks and odds are good that they will.

Shelton will provide depth for the Patriots' defensive tackle position that includes Malcom Brown and Lawrence Guy. Wilson said Mathieu would be a ideal fit in New England, as he is also capable of playing cornerback and inside linebacker in sub-packages.
