Patriots to acquire DT Shelton from Browns

Former First Round Pick Traded To Patriots

In recent days, the Cleveland Browns have significantly changed their roster, and the New England Patriots were one of the teams to trade with them.

Shelton, who played only 44% of the Browns' snaps last season according to profootballreference.com, is better suited to the Patriot's 3-4 scheme, and the Browns have a lot of young tackles who have made a strong case for reps.

It's expected that Shelton will act as a situational defensive tackle for the Patriots, primarily on rushing downs. ESPN reporter Adam Schefter summarized the flurry of comings and goings in a tweet Saturday following the Shelton deal.

So, I think it's a really good idea that they've met. "And we look forward to the support of every single leader". Mr Odinga boycotted the repeat election in October, saying adequate electoral reforms had not been made.

DeShone Kizer to the Packers for cornerback Damarious Randall and a swap of both teams' fourth and fifth round picks. He recorded 71 tackles and 1.5 sacks in three seasons.

Shelton, 24, is scheduled to earn a base salary of $2.03 million in 2018.

Pro Football Focus graded him as the league's No. 35 interior defender in 2017.

James Gomez, Amnesty International's director for Southeast Asia and the Pacific, said the UN's new findings "sadly echo our own". But rights groups and the United Nations have warned that conditions for their return are not close to being in place.

Shelton will fill in nicely for the Patriots on early downs, as he should be a good replacement for Alan Branch.

While we don't know at this moment how things will work out for the Browns, Belichick can pair Shelton along with another first-round pick from the Class of 2015 in defensive tackle Malcom Brown.

Shelton was moving into the last year of his rookie deal, and Cleveland was said to be working on picking up his fifth-year option.

The departure of Shelton, 24, means all 10 of the Browns' first-round picks from 2009-2015 are gone from Cleveland. And New England's defense was gashed for 164 yards on the ground in the Super Bowl LII loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
