Patriots' Danny Shelton: Fifth-year option declined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shelton won't have his fifth-year option picked up by the Patriots, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports.

After three years with the Browns, Shelton was dealt to New England in March and is currently penciled in as a potential starter on the defensive line. Considering he's yet to play a snap for the Patriots, however, the organization isn't willing to commit to a $7.14 million option for the 2019 season. As a result, the team will decline it and allow Shelton a chance to prove himself on the field. Look for Shelton to become an unrestricted free agent in 2019, though the two sides could ultimately come to an extension if he plays well in his first year with the team.

Patriots' Danny Shelton: Traded to Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns traded Shelton to the Patriots on Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The Browns will receive a conditional draft pick in return for Shelton. The Patriots have a need at defensive tackle, and it looks like Shelton will not only get an opportunity to carve out a role on the line, but potentially earn a starting spot. He has logged 128 tackles (71 solo) and 1.5 sacks in 46 games across three seasons with the Browns. While his numbers do not necessarily jump off the page, he is a big body who can eat up blockers and allow the Patriots' linebackers freedom to roam.
