Patriots acquire DT Danny Shelton from the 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. Field Yates of ESPN tweeted on Saturday that the Pats have acquired defensive tackle Danny Shelton and a 2018 fifth-round pick from the Browns in exchange for their 2019 third-round pick.

Coming into the offseason, one of the big needs for the Patriots was to strengthen their front seven.

The second leg? The head is on Sunday against Genoa, we are playing something important and then we will think about Arsenal . A few whacks in the face can do you good, they help you to learn.

Cleveland switched from a 3-4 defensive scheme to a 4-3 last season, and Shelton was not playing over the center as in the past.

A first-round pick of the Browns in the 2015 NFL Draft out of the University of Washington, Shelton burst onto the scene after being introduced as the selection when he wrapped up NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in a bear hug before posing for photos on the stage in Chicago. The trade gives Shelton new scenery under head coach Bill Belichick that will help him re-establish his career.

Advance by Syrian army in Eastern Ghouta splits rebel enclave in three
Turkey-led rebels have been pressing an assault on the Kurdish enclave of Afrin since January 20. The channel has been reporting since last week that rebels have prevented civilians from leaving.

Shelton specializes as a run-stuffing defensive tackle. Another positive about the addition of Shelton is that he is still on his rookie contract. At 6-foot-2, 335 pounds, he ran a 5.64-second 40-yard dash, 7.99-second 3-cone, 4.65-second short shuttle, 30.5-inch vertical leap and 7-foot, 11-inch broad jump with 34 bench press reps at the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine. Most of the time when the Patriots make a deal like this, it turns out to be good for the team. Additionally, Shelton has started in all but two of the games in which he has appeared.

The Patriots will take on Shelton's $2 million salary in 2018 and have to decide if they will pick up his 2019 option worth $7 million. This trade looks to be the same on paper. New England also released Alan Branch earlier in the week.
