Browns to trade Danny Shelton to Patriots; fourth trade in two days

Browns to trade Danny Shelton to Patriots; fourth trade in two days

The Browns sent 24-year-old defensive end Danny Shelton to New England in a package deal, capping off a dizzying 24 hours of high-profile trades by the recently woeful franchise.

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.

With free agency almost here, the Patriots chose to strengthen their front seven with the acquisition of defensive tackle Danny Shelton from the Browns. According to ESPN, his "skill-set should fit well" in the Patriots' young, run-focused hybrid defense.

Shelton first entered the National Football League as a first-round pick for the Cleveland Browns, and became an immediate starter. The deal is pending Shelton passing a physical. The trade gives Shelton new scenery under head coach Bill Belichick that will help him re-establish his career. Another positive about the addition of Shelton is that he is still on his rookie contract.

As explained by Mike Reiss of ESPN, the Patriots will have a fifth-year option on Shelton that would equal the average salary of the 3rd-to-25th highest-paid defensive linemen.

The 6-foot-2, 335-pound Shelton was a three-year letter victor for the Washington Huskies, and earned both first-team All-America and CoSIDA Academic All-America first-team honors in 2014. Though, Shelton did start 44 of a possible 48 games during that span. At best, the Patriots just added a full-time starter. This trade looks to be the same on paper. As of now, it is unclear if New England will exercise that option.
