BEREA — The Browns made a pair of trades Saturday following the first practice of training camp, addressing needs on both lines.
General manager Tom Heckert reunited with defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley, acquiring him from the Eagles for a fifth-round draft choice in 2012. Heckert was GM of the Eagles in 2006 when he drafted Bunkley with the No. 14 pick. Bunkley will likely join a tackle rotation with Ahtyba Rubin and first-round pick Phil Taylor, who’s holding out.
Bunkley, 27 started 47 games from 2007-09 but only five in 2010 as he battled an elbow injury. The Eagles announced the trade, but a Browns spokesman refused to confirm it.
Late Saturday night, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported the Browns traded an undisclosed draft pick to the Rams for guard John Greco. The three-year veteran has four starts in 26 games. Browns coach Pat Shurmur was the St. Louis offensive coordinator the past two years.
