Big move by the Browns to kick off the off-season, if Vernon is healthy both him and Garrett are one of the top pass-rush tandems in the league

The New York Giants have agreed to a trade that will send Pro Bowl outside linebacker Olivier Vernon to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for right guard Kevin Zeitler, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Friday.

In addition, the Giants will send a fourth-round pick (132nd overall) in the upcoming NFL draft to the Browns for a fifth-round selection (155th overall), a source told ESPN.

The trade won't become official until the start of the NFL year on Wednesday.

Vernon led the Giants last season with seven sacks and 21 quarterback hits in 11 games. That was more than twice as many quarterback hits as any other player on the team. He played linebacker in the Giants' 3-4 defensive scheme last season, but has played at defensive end in a 4-3 package.
