Patriots Acquire DT Danny Shelton From Browns

Browns Trade DT Danny Shelton To Patriots

This move is the fourth trade by new Browns general manager John Dorsey over the course of 24 hours.

The Cleveland Browns have made yet another trade, this time dealing former first round pick Danny Shelton to the New England Patriots in exchange for a swapping of mid-round draft picks.

Vita Vea is also a player in this year's draft with more athleticism and natural ability than Shelton, coming from the same program out in Washington, that could intrigue the Browns depending on what else they do to fill holes in free agency.

Meanwhile, Shelton should help bolster the New England defensive line after the Pats tied for 30th in rushing yards allowed per attempt last season. With Shelton's deal, the Browns have released all of their seven first-round draft picks from 2012-15.

Shelton, a three-year National Football League veteran, has one year remaining on his rookie deal.

Shelton has excelled against the run throughout his career. Another positive about the addition of Shelton is that he is still on his rookie contract.'s Mary Kay Cabot wrote Saturday that the 6-foot-2, 335-pound tackle "often occupied two blockers, but never lived up to his first-round status", particularly when the team switched away from a 3-4 defensive scheme. In May, the Patriots will decide whether or not to pick up his fifth-year option for 2019. At best, the Patriots just added a full-time starter. While there is still some work to do on the defensive side of the ball, getting Shelton is certainly a good start. 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.
