The Cleveland Browns are looking to deal defensive lineman Emmanuel Ogbah, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. General Manager John Dorsey is willing to trade Ogbah, who will be in a contract year.

Ogbah’s name has come up in trade rumors before. He was initially mentioned in a package for Odell Beckham Jr., but the two sides agreed to a different deal.

The Browns are not committed to him long-term. And it’s going to be tough for him to receive playing time with the addition of defensive end Olivier Vernon, who was also acquired in a separate trade with the New York Giants.

Vernon is expected to play opposite of Myles Garrett. Ogbah has failed to develop into a top pass rusher, as he has just 12.5 sacks in 40 games.

The 25-year-old Lagos, Nigeria native spent three seasons with the Browns. He appeared in 14 games, including 14 starts, with the Browns in 2018.

He had 40 tackles, including three tackles for a loss, and eight quarterback hits. He also had 3.0 sacks, one fumble recovery, and eight pass deflections.

In his career, he has made 40 starts. He had 122 tackles, including 16 tackles for a loss, and 29 quarterback hits.

He had the aforementioned 12.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, and 17 pass deflections.
