Browns trade Wimbley to Raiders

Cleveland Browns president Mike Holmgren is having a busy day trading away former first-round draft picks.

In addition to trading 2007 first-round pick Brady Quinn to the Denver Broncos, Holmgren also traded 2006 first-round pick Kamerion Wimbley to the Oakland Raiders.

Adam Caplan of first reported the trade.

The Browns selected Wimbley, an outside linebacker, out of Florida State with the 13th overall pick in 2006. He burst onto the scene as a rookie with 11 sacks and has started every game but two in his four years in Cleveland, but he hasn’t been quite lived up to the promise he showed as a rookie.

There’s no word yet on what the Raiders sent to the Browns in exchange for Wimbley.
