With just one day left before the NFL trade deadline, the Browns made the trade for LB Jamie Collins. The Browns, who have yet to win a game this season, traded a compensatory 3rd round draft pick to the Patriots for the Pro Bowl linebacker. 

New England was reportedly having trouble negotiating a long-term contract with Collins, who becomes a free agent after the season. This move gives Cleveland an immediate starter on a porous defense and it gives New England some compensation for a player that was likely to walk in Free Agency.

 Collins is a candidate for the franchise tag this spring if a long-term deal cannot be worked out by the beginning of free agency.
