One day after trading for Jarvis Landry, Tyrod Taylor, and Damarious Randall, the Browns are back on the trade market. But their trade of defensive tackle Danny Shelton to the Patriots on Saturday extends the scope of this achievement by one year.

Chalk up another deal for new Browns general manager John Dorsey, who has been amazingly active since Friday.

As the Browns move to rapidly remake their offense, the Shelton trade could also represent an effort to optimize their improving defense, which was a relative bright spot in their winless 2017 season, even if it was by no means elite.

Shelton will fill in nicely for the Patriots on early downs, as he should be a good replacement for Alan Branch. The Patriots can also pick up his fifth-year option for 2019, which would be a yet-to-be-determined salary of the average of the third through 25th highest salaries among defensive linemen. The deal is pending Shelton passing a physical. In 2018, Shelton will be making just over $2 million.


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.

With Shelton now headed to New England, we can officially close the chapter on the first round of every Browns draft from 2009 to 2015 and that's because they have no more first-rounders left from any of those drafts. Yes, the Patriots defense did overcome a shaky start and their rankings could be perceived as deceptive.

Shelton joins 2015 first-round pick Malcom Brown and seven-year veteran Lawrence Guy atop the Patriots' interior defensive line depth chart.

Overall trade grade: B+ for New England.
