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

FILE- Cleveland Browns nose tackle Danny Shelton sits on the sideline during the first half of an NFL football game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Cleveland. The Browns have reportedly agreed to trade Shelton to the Patriots

The move comes after three major deals Friday.

In the trade with the Browns, Shelton and a 2018 fifth round pick are reportedly coming to New England in exchange for a 2019 third round pick.

It's the fourth trade in the past 24 hours for the Browns, who are quickly trying to turn a corner in their extended rebuilding process under new general manager John Dorsey.

The Browns chose to trade Shelton after the defensive line unit featuring Trevon Coley, Larry Ogunjobi, and Caleb Brantley played exceptionally well last season.

With free agency almost here, the Patriots chose to strengthen their front seven with the acquisition of defensive tackle Danny Shelton from the Browns.

Dozens of people protested on Wednesday in Chile where the signing of the new Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) will take place in the country's capital.

While Shelton won't provide the Patriots with much a pass rusher, he is a massive man that is very strong against the run. The Browns also pulled off a trade with the Packers that sent DeShone Kizer to Green Bay and added a potential starting cornerback for Cleveland. 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. According to ESPN, his "skill-set should fit well" in the Patriots' young, run-focused hybrid defense.

The Browns made 10 first-round picks between 2009 and 2015. Yes, the Patriots defense did overcome a shaky start and their rankings could be perceived as deceptive.

Shelton will join Malcom Brown, Lawrence Guy, Adam Butler and Vincent Valentine on the Patriots' defensive tackle depth chart.

Overall trade grade: B+ for New England.
