BALTIMORE MD – OCTOBER 11 Nose tackle Danny Shelton

O'Neil and Horton ran a 3-4 defense that relies on a strong nose tackle, but with the Browns switching to a 4-3 under Williams in 2017, Shelton might not have had the same value to them.

The Cleveland Browns are at it again.

In the trade with the Browns, Shelton and a 2018 fifth round pick are reportedly coming to New England in exchange for a 2019 third round pick. After acquiring wide receiver Jarvis Landry, quarterback Tyrod Taylor and defensive back Damarious Randall yesterday, the new front office clearly believes that the roster needs a big overhaul.

A first-round pick of the Browns in the 2015 NFL Draft out of the University of Washington, Shelton burst onto the scene after being introduced as the selection when he wrapped up NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in a bear hug before posing for photos on the stage in Chicago.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoprt reported the Denver Broncos expressed interest in trading for the former Browns defensive tackle. Though, Shelton did start 44 of a possible 48 games during that span.

First Ramos saw his 42nd-minute header fly wide before Dmitrovic made a superb save to tip Ronaldo's deflected shot over his goal. Five minutes into the second half, Ivan Ramis drew level for Eibar with a great header off a corner by Pedro Leon .

Shelton specializes as a run-stuffing defensive tackle. "His 6'2", 343-pound frame makes him hard to move in the trenches, which frees up linebackers to make plays at the line.

Shelton, a three-year National Football League veteran, has one year remaining on his rookie deal. The Patriots will need to decide if they want to pick up his and Brown's 2019 fifth-year options by May 2.

Last season, he recorded 33 tackles and one pass breakup in 14 games, where he showed his ability against the run.

Shelton joins Malcom Brown, Lawrence Guy, Adam Butler and Vincent Valentine on the Patriots' defensive tackle depth chart. New England also released Alan Branch earlier in the week.
