The NFL's new league year still hasn't officially begun yet, but the Cleveland Browns remain one of the league's most active teams.
Selected in the second round of the 2016 draft, Ogbah has appeared in 40 games over the course of the past three seasons, all of which were starts. In that span, the Oklahoma State product has produced solid, albeit unspectacular results, totaling 122 tackles, 16 of which have come for a loss, 12.5 sacks and 29 quarterback hits.
In 14 games last season, Ogbah recorded 40 tackles, 3 of which came for a loss, 3 sacks and 3 quarterback hits. Entering the offseason, the Browns figured to attempt to upgrade their pass rush by upgrading the starting spot at defensive end across from Pro Bowler Myles Garrett.
In acquiring Olivier Vernon from the New York Giants, Cleveland seems to have done just that, adding another 2018 Pro Bowl selection who has consistently graded as one of the top pass-rushers of football. The addition of Vernon, however, ultimately appears to have made Ogbah expendable -- although the 25-year-old does possess the ability to play multiple positions across the defensive line.
But with the team having also signed defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson, Cleveland's most effective course of action would likely be to trade Ogbah and not necessarily just for a future draft pick. In acquiring Beckham from New York, the Browns traded away Jabrill Peppers, opening a spot at strong safety on the team's depth chart.
