Browns reportedly trade former first-round pick Danny Shelton to the Patriots

Browns Trade DT Danny Shelton To Patriots

A person familiar with the negotiations says the Cleveland Browns have agreed to trade defensive tackle Danny Shelton and a fifth-round draft pick to the New England Patriots.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Browns traded a 2018 draft pick in addition to Shelton, for a conditional pick in 2019.

Shelton enters 2018 on the final year of his rookie contract but since he was a first-round pick, the Patriots have a fifth-year option.

The 12th overall pick in 2015, Shelton is a talented 335-pound defensive tackle.

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 trade can not be made official until the new league year begins at 4 p.m. on March 14.

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.

Cleveland Browns defensive lineman Danny Shelton (55) runs to the sidelines during game action between the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on November 12, 2017 at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan.

It's expected that Shelton will act as a situational defensive tackle for the Patriots, primarily on rushing downs.

Last season, he recorded 33 tackles and one pass breakup in 14 games, where he showed his ability against the run. New England also released Alan Branch earlier in the week.
