The Cleveland Browns continued their wheeling and dealing on Saturday. Instead of acquiring a player, the Browns dealt away a player.

The Browns traded defensive tackle Danny Shelton to the New England Patriots. In addition to Shelton, the Patriots are also receiving a fifth-round draft pick in April’s draft.

The Browns have acquired a third-round draft pick in the 2019 NFL Draft in this deal. The deal can not become official until March 14th when the new league year opens up for business at 4 pm.

Shelton has been someone that the Browns attempted to trade before. The old Browns regime attempted to trade Shelton to the Denver Broncos prior to last year’s trade deadline in Oct.

This is the fourth deal for the Browns in the last two days. They acquired Tyrod Taylor, Jarvis Landry, and Damarious Randall in separate deals on Friday.

The Browns are reportedly not done making moves.

Shelton recently completed his third season with the Browns. After playing in 16 games each of his first two seasons, he played in just 14 games last season.

This past season, he had 20 tackles and one pass deflection.

In three seasons in the league, he has appeared in 46 games, including 44 starts. He has 71 tackles, 1.5 sacks, and one pass deflection.
