Former Browns first rounder Danny Shelton traded to Patriots

Browns make deal to send former 1st-round pick Danny Shelton to Patriots Browns make deal to send former 1st-round pick Danny Shelton to Patriots

On Friday, the Browns pulled off deals with the Miami Dolphins for wide receiver Jarvis Landry, the Buffalo Bills for quarterback Tyrod Taylor and the Green Bay Packers for cornerback Damarious Randall. But their trade of defensive tackle Danny Shelton to the Patriots on Saturday extends the scope of this achievement by one year.

The Patriots have gotten in on the Cleveland Browns' dizzying flurry of trades.

A 12th-overall draft pick in 2015, Shelton has recorded 128 combined tackles and just 1.5 sacks through 46 games during his three years in the National Football League and wasn't seen as a good fit for the team's new defensive regime.

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

The Shelton deal continues an active 24 hours for the Browns.

What's more, all 10 of the Browns' first-round draft picks from 2009-2015 are gone from Cleveland, and at the rate they're going, their first-round pick from the 2016 draft, underachieving Corey Coleman, could be on his way out too. The Patriots now must decide whether or not to pick up Shelton's fifth-year option for the 2019 season over the course of the next few weeks and odds are good that they will.

Doug Kyed of NESN.com said that Shelton is a younger and better version of the 33-year-old defensive tackle Alan Branch, who was recently released by the Patriots [VIDEO]. Yes, the Patriots defense did overcome a shaky start and their rankings could be perceived as deceptive.

Shelton, a 6-foot-2, 335-pound run stuffer, helps fortify a front that includes Malcom Brown, Lawrence Guy, Vincent Valentine and Adam Butler.
