Patriots trade Pierre Strong to Browns for offensive tackle Tyrone Wheatley Jr.

Fearful news: Browns head coach received a death threaten message.

FOXBORO – With cutdown day looming, the Patriots have made a trade in hopes of addressing a position of need.

The Patriots confirmed they traded running back Pierre Strong to the Cleveland Browns.

In return, New England will acquire offensive tackle Tyrone Wheatley Jr., who has yet to play an NFL game.

The Patriots have struggled on the offensive line this preseason.

Wheatley, who is 6’6″ tall and weighs in at 320 pounds, was not drafted in 2020 and had brief stints with the Bears and Raiders before landing with the Browns last year. He spent much of the 2022 season on Cleveland’s practice squad.

New England drafted Strong in the 4th round of the 2022 draft. In limited action, he ran for 100 yards on 10 carries during his rookie season.
