Patriots Acquire DT Danny Shelton From Browns

Browns Trade DT Danny Shelton To Patriots Report: Defensive Tackle Danny Shelton Traded to New England Patriots

On Friday, Dorsey acquired quarterback Tyrod Taylor, wide receiver Jarvis Landry and cornerback Damarious Randall.

The Patriots have reportedly made a move to shore up their defensive line.

While the Pittsburgh Steelers no longer have to worry about facing Shelton twice in 2018 as a member of the Browns, they'll still likely face him once during the regular season as the Patriots will play Pittsburgh during the regular season once again.

Shelton was drafted No. 12 overall by the Browns in 2015 out of the University of Washington and has spent the past two seasons in Cleveland. It also means that none of the Browns' first-round picks from 2009 to 2015 are still on the team.




The Shelton deal continues an active 24 hours for the Browns.

In 46 career games with the Browns, Shelton registered 128 total tackles, including 71 solo stops and 57 assists with 1.5 sacks and one pass defended. He was a contributor to their elite run defense in 2017 and graded as a top-20 interior defender against the run according to Pro Football Focus. Shelton will be due a $2.03 million base salary in 2018. The big-bodied defensive tackle should immediately step in and contribute to a run defense that struggled at times last season. The Patriots will need to decide if they want to pick up his and Brown's 2019 fifth-year options by May 2.

Shelton will provide depth for the Patriots' defensive tackle position that includes Malcom Brown and Lawrence Guy.

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. As of now, it is unclear if New England will exercise that option.
