Patriots Acquire Danny Shelton From Browns

11 March 2018

The move comes after three major deals Friday.

Just a day after acquiring stud wideout Jarvis Landry and quarterback Tyrod Taylor, everybody's favorite new National Football League squad trades former first-round selection Danny Shelton to the New England Patriots, according to ESPN.

For the fourth time in less than 24 hours, the Cleveland Browns have pulled off a trade.

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.

Cleveland switched from a 3-4 defensive scheme to a 4-3 last season, and Shelton was not playing over the center as in the past.

While Shelton won't provide the Patriots with much a pass rusher, he is a massive man that is very strong against the run.

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]. At best, the Patriots just added a full-time starter. Additionally, Shelton has started in all but two of the games in which he has appeared.

He's a massive, space-eating defensive tackle who will provide bulk on the interior alongside Malcom Brown (320 pounds), Lawrence Guy (300 pounds), Vincent Valentine (320 pounds), and Adam Butler (300 pounds).

The Browns made 10 first-round picks between 2009 and 2015. 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. Wilson said Mathieu would be a flawless fit in New England, as he is also capable of playing cornerback and inside linebacker in sub-packages.
