Patriots acquire DT Danny Shelton from the Browns

BALTIMORE MD – OCTOBER 11 Nose tackle Danny Shelton

On Saturday, the Patriots dealt a 2019 third-round pick to the Cleveland Browns for Danny Shelton and a 2018 fifth-round pick. The Patriots will get Shelton and a 2018 fifth-round NFL Draft pick, while the Browns will receive a third-round 2019 selection, according to Yates and Schefter.

This opens up some options for the Browns in free agency, and some possible replacement nose tackles as well as building with their draft picks from last season. If you somehow missed it, the Browns traded for Tyrod Taylor and Jarvis Landry on Friday, and that wasn't even everything they did.

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 best part for the Patriots is that Shelton is still under his rookie contract for another year.

The 6-6, 342-pounder's production declined last season as he started six of the 12 games he played and was inactive in the postseason during the Patriots' run to Super Bowl LII. Shelton joins quarterback DeShone Kizer, traded to Green Bay in the Randall trade, as players dealt away by the Browns.

The Pats should be all set at the defensive tackle position.

Shelton's value to the Browns was diminished when Gregg Williams was brought in as defensive coordinator in 2017 and converted to a 4-3 alignment.

It didn't take the Patriots long to upgrade their defensive line.

The Cleveland Browns are not done dealing and now it's defensive tackle Danny Shelton who is on the move, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. New England also released Alan Branch earlier in the week.
