Olivier Vernon traded to Browns

NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reported on Twitter Friday morning that the Giants have agreed to a trade that will send veteran pass-rusher Olivier Vernon to the Browns in exchange for guard Kevin Zeitler. The Giants are also sending pick 132 (fourth round) and getting 155 back.

Fantasy Impact

There were reports in recent days that the Giants were shopping their veteran pass-rusher because they didn’t want to pay his hefty salary. Vernon, who is entering the third year of a five-year contract, is set to make $15.250 million in base salary and count for $19.5 million against the cap in 2019. Zeitler’s salary is $10 million. Vernon recorded seven sacks in 11 games during the 2018 season and was named to the Pro Bowl.

Olivier Vernon plays well in season debut

Giants outside linebacker Olivier Vernon was the lone bright spot in what was an ugly loss to the Eagles Thursday night. He recorded two tackles (one for loss) with one sack and two QB hits.

Fantasy Impact

He left the game briefly due to cramping but was able to return. It was great to see Vernon look like his old self after missing the first five weeks of the season with a high ankle sprain suffered in preseason. He provided consistent pressure on quarterback Carson Wentz throughout the night. The Giants will head to Atlanta for a Monday night showdown with the Falcons in Week 7.
