Bunkley joins Broncos, not Browns

The Cleveland Browns traded for former Philadelphia Eagles defensive lineman Brodrick Bunkley on Saturday.
But something happened in the past 48 hours that neither the Browns nor Eagles are willing to explain. Instead, Bunkley is now a member of the Denver Broncos after Denver traded an undisclosed draft pick in 2013, leaving Cleveland still thin on the defensive line.
So what happened? Did Bunkley refuse to report to Cleveland? Who knows? But it's been a poor start to the season so far for the Browns, who have failed to make significant progress by adding talent via trades or free agency.
