The trade was also reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter.
A third-round pick of the Miami Dolphins in 2012, Vernon was one of the big catches of the 2016 free agent cycle. Vernon has 51 sacks in seven seasons, including seven previous year when he was named a Pro Bowler in NY.
Vernon is due $15.5 million each of the two remaining years on his deal, which was easy to absorb for the Browns who had about $77 million in cap space to work with entering today.
Last season, the pass rusher logged seven sacks and one forced fumble. When the Browns signed him as a free agent in 2017, Zeitler became the highest-paid guard in the National Football League - a title that has since been surpassed by Dallas' Zack Martin and Jacksonville's Andrew Norwell.
Zeitler should vastly improve that group, although NY could look to draft offensive linemen next month.
