Will Kris Richard be promoted to Defensive Coordinator with Marinelli either retiring or taking a consultant role similar to the consultant role they gave to Hudson Houck? Will Kris Richard be more likely to prefer size at DT than Marinelli? Danny Shelton is a free agent. He was drafted with the 12th overall pick by Cleveland in 2015 and started 42 of 44 games played and only missed 4 games of a possible 48. Shelton was traded to New England for a swap of NE's 3rd round pick for Cleveland's 5th round pick. Obviously NE's 3rd round pick is almost a 4th round pick. Shelton only started 1 game for New England but he did play 31 percent of the snaps which is OK for a pure 1-tech type DT. Draft Measurable(s); 6-2 339 Bench: 34 reps What type of contract does a player get that only started 1 regular season game and 1 playoff game this past season? The Patriots DT Malcom Brown is also a free agent; however, he is likely to be expensive as a free agent.
