Browns Deals Continue; Ship Former First-Round Pick DT Danny Shelton to Patriots

A day after the team made a historic amount of trades, and Browns were at it again on Saturday, dealing with the AFC Champion New England Patriots sending them former 2015 first-round draft choice Danny Shelton.

Here’s the details of the deal from ESPN.

The Patriots are also acquiring the Browns’ 2018 fifth-round pick and will send their 2019 third-round pick to Cleveland, sources told ESPN.

The trade, which can’t officially be announced until Wednesday, when the 2018 league year begins, is the fourth trade the Browns have agreed to since Friday.

The 6-foot-2, 335-pound Shelton entered the NFL as a first-round draft choice of the Browns in 2015 (No. 12 overall).

He has played in 46 regular-season games (45 starts), totaling 71 tackles and 1.5 sacks. The Washington alum was a highly touted prospect coming out of college, in part because of his strength at the line of scrimmage against the run.

Shelton, 24, is scheduled to earn a base salary of $2.03 million in 2018. The Patriots can also pick up his fifth-year option for 2019, which would be a yet-to-be-determined salary of the average of the third through 25th highest salaries among defensive linemen.

Randy Ward, is a die hard Browns fan that hasn't missed a game since the Browns have been back in 99. Randy bleeds Orange and Brown and can't wait for that one day, when the Browns are on top of the mountain. Go Browns and Destination Super Bowl!!!!
