The Cleveland Browns have traded outside linebacker Kamerion Wimbley to the Oakland Raiders for undisclosed draft compensation, a league source told

Wimbley's career with the Browns started off well after he was selected in the first round of the 2006 draft. He posted 11 sacks as a rookie, but totaled only 16.5 over the next three seasons. Wimbley started and played in 63 out of 64 regular-season games for the Browns. The only game he missed was in 2009 because of flu-like symptoms.

With the Raiders, there's a pretty good possibility he will move to defensive end because Oakland runs a 4-3 scheme. Wimbley played only end at Florida State, but moved to outside linebacker in Cleveland's 3-4 scheme.

A source said the final season of Wimbley's six-year rookie deal will void, but there's a $7.765 million buyback for 2011. Wimbley is set to make $1.065 million in base salary for 2010.
