On the surface, players not showing up for the start of a team's offseason workout program isn't a big deal given the voluntary nature of the Phase I event, which is limited to strength and conditioning and rehabilitation work.
Ogbah was not present Monday with teammates at the team's facility as the Browns "aggressively try to trade him," NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. A deal is not imminent and the fourth-year pro will likely stay away until a deal is in place, Rapoport added.
Over the past three seasons, Ogbah has started 40 games, totaling 122 tackles, 12.5 sacks and 29 quarterback hits. He entered the league in 2016 as a second-round pick with the Browns.
Ogbah isn't the only player away from voluntary workouts. Running back Duke Johnson was not in attendance Monday, per coach Freddie Kitchens.
