Browns trade Danny Shelton, 2018 pick to Patriots for 2019 conditional pick
The big-bodied defensive tackle should immediately step in and contribute to a run defense that struggled at times last season. While Shelton won't provide the Patriots with much a pass rusher, he is a massive man that is very strong against the run.

Another candidate, Sakaldeep Rajbhar, a Ballia court stamp writer, is a significant choice, coming at a time when the BJP's ally Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party and its leader Om Prakash Rajbhar, who is part of the Yogi Adityanath cabinet, have been criticising the government. This despite the lobbying in New Delhi for former Lok Sabha Speaker, Meira Kumar, who also belongs to the same sub-sect, for this seat. In all, three seats from the state will fall vacant on April 2 with the retirement of incumbents K Chiranjeevi, Renuka Chowdary and T Devender Goud.
