Browns trading former first-round CB Justin Gilbert to the Pittsburgh Steelers, per league source. Rare in-division trade.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 3, 2016
Cleveland was counting on Gilbert to be one of their starting cornerbacks when they drafted him in the first round in 2014, but he struggled to stay on the field - and to make an impact when he was out there.

Pittsburgh is looking to add depth to their secondary, and Gilbert is someone with potential they hope they can get something out of.Back to the Cleveland Browns Newsfeed
