DT - NYG
Week 2 Outlook
Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Giants have signed DT Danny Shelton to a one-year contract.
The details of the one-year contract have not come out yet, but this move fills a need for the Giants especially after the loss of DT Dalvin Tomlinson in free agency. Shelton, 27-years old, spent 2020 with the Lions where he started 12 games and totaled 37 tackles and a sack. Head coach Joe Judge spent time with Shelton during his his time in New England and will now be reunited with the former 2015, first round pick.
Defesnive tackle Danny Shelton and the Lions have come to terms for a 2-year/$8M contract.
Shelton was selected as the 12th overall pick out of Washington in 2015 by the Cleveland Browns. He spent three years there, the last two in New England, and will start 2020 in Detroit. At only 26 years old, Shelton has already won a Super Bowl and become a prominent nose tackle in the league. He only has 4.5 sacks throughout his five years in the league, but that's because he primarily plays on running downs. He holds little fantasy value but will be a great addition to the Lions' run defense.
Danny Shelton posted six solo tackles, one assisted tackle, one sack, one QB hit, and a forced fumble, as the Patriots edged the Eagles, 17-10.
Shelton's strip-sack in the second quarter was a crucial play that led to points in a game where scoring came at a premium. Shelton is just the latest Pats defender to have a fantastic game, though he doesn't carry a lot of value in fantasy. He and New England will be tasked with limiting an efficient Dallas offense next week.
Cleveland Browns defensive lineman Danny Shelton injured his knee at practice and is being called week-to-week with the injury. He will not be available for the team's second preseason game this Monday against the Giants.
Shelton is coming off a solid season in 2016 in which he racked up 59 tackles. His absence will leave a big hole in the middle of the team's defensive line as the Browns are counting on him to anchor the unit this season. Some reports stated that Shelton could be out 3-6 weeks with the injury.
Danny Shelton had a career-high in tackles in Week 15, making seven stops (four solo). One of those tackles went for a loss.
The 2015 first-round draft pick is up to 33 tackles on the season while anchoring the middle of the team's defense. He will take on the Chiefs in Week 16.
