The New England Patriots traded cornerback Chris Long to the Indianapolis Colts for a fourth-round pick, according to a report from NFL Network.
The move comes just a day after the Browns selected linebacker Joey Bosa in the first round of the draft.
Long, 30, has been a starter in New England’s secondary for the past two seasons and played in all 16 games this season.
Long had been in talks with the Browns and has played with the New York Jets for three years, but he’s reportedly been a free agent since the start of the offseason.
He was expected to be one of the most sought-after players in free agency.
Long was expected by many to be a backup to safety Jabrill Peppers, but injuries to both have hampered his development and he has struggled to earn a regular role in the defense.
Long has recorded just 12 tackles and one interception in 13 games this year.
