Defensive Tackle Danny Shelton Traded to New England Patriots

Defensive Tackle Danny Shelton Traded to New England Patriots

But their trade of defensive tackle Danny Shelton to the Patriots on Saturday extends the scope of this achievement by one year.

The Browns aren't done trading yet, completing four trades in less than 24 hours. This past season, the Browns finished seventh in the National Football League in rushing defense.

Shelton specializes as a run-stuffing defensive tackle.

ESPN's Field Yates cited sources that reported the Browns will receive a conditional draft pick in exchange for Shelton. 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.

Danny Shelton of the Washington Huskies hugs NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell after being picked No. 12 overall by the Cleveland Browns during the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

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

The 6-foot-2, 335-pound Shelton was a three-year letter victor for the Washington Huskies, and earned both first-team All-America and CoSIDA Academic All-America first-team honors in 2014. The 24-year-old started in a total of 44 games over the past three years with the Browns. At best, the Patriots just added a full-time starter.

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).

New England has been desperate for help on the defensive line, and the addition of the big-bodied Shelton.
