Ogbah is now a member of the reigning AFC West champion Kansas City Chiefs. No joke on this April Fools’ Day. In return for Ogbah, the Chiefs send safety Eric Murray to Cleveland. Murray will replace Jabrill Peppers who was also apart of the big blockbuster trade between the Browns and Giants.
The trade of Ogbah comes as no surprise. The Browns second round pick in 2016 did not report for the teams first day of voluntary off season workouts. In his three seasons for Cleveland, Ogbah amassed 12.5 sacks and 122 tackles.
Murray enters his fourth season in the National Football League. In 2018, Murray started nine games. He finished with 54 tackles, two passes defensed and an interception. A 2016 fourth-round pick out of Minnesota, Murray has appeared in 45 games over the course of his career. He had a career-best five passes defensed in 2017 and has 94 tackles in three seasons.
