Browns acquire Pro Bowl linebacker Collins from Patriots (The Associated Press)

The winless Cleveland Browns were perceived to be sellers, not buyers, on the eve of the NFL’s trade deadline. Cleveland acquired Pro Bowl linebacker Jamie Collins from the Patriots in exchange for a conditional third-round draft choice, bolstering a defense that has allowed the most yards in the league. ”We traded for a great player, and that says a lot about our front office,” Browns wide receiver Terrelle Pryor said.
