Report: Browns may be close to trade with Eagles

By dan Published: April 2, 2010

League sources tell Clark Judge of CBS Sports, that the Browns are close to a deal with the Philadelphia Eagles.

According to Judge, Philadelphia would send cornerback Sheldon Brown and linebacker Chris Gocong to the Browns for either two draft picks and a backup or for a draft pick and a starting player.

Judge reports that the deal has been held up because Brown wants a new contract. He asked to be traded last April. Brown didn't show up for Philadelphia's mandatory offseason workouts that started on Monday.

Last season Brown registered a career-high five interceptions.

Gocong, drafted in the third round in 2006, played defensive end in college. For the Eagles, he started 23 games over the last two seasons at linebacker but lost his starting job in 2009 to Moise Fokou.

In his career, Gocong has four sacks.

The Browns currently have 12 picks in the upcoming NFL Draft, including three in the third round and four in the fifth round.
