Trent Brown Heads Back East
The 6'8 tackle is being dealt back to the Patriots.
Bill Belichick was up late last night firing off “you up?” texts to various GMs and the only one that got back to him was Mike Mayock of the Las Vegas Raiders. After bartering with Mayock, Belichick was able to bring 6’8 offensive tackle Trent Brown back to the Patriots.
Details of the trade have the Patriots sending a 2022 5th round selection in exchange for Brown and a 2020 7th round pick.
As a part of the trade, Brown restructured his contract to a 1 year, 11 million dollar deal.
The 27 year old behemoth played from 2015-2017 with the San Francisco 49ers before being traded to New England. In his one season, 2018, as a Patriot, he started every game and won a Super Bowl. After having a phenomenal year, he inked a 4 year, 66 million dollar deal with the Raiders.
After making the 2019 Pro Bowl, the 2020 season didn’t treat Brown to kind. He was only able to play in five games and was on the reserve/Covid-19 list. He also had an issue with a pregame IV that caused air to enter into his blood stream.
Hopefully Brown will be able to play this next season and stay healthy. He would be a huge piece of the Patriots potential success, part because of the possible departures of Joe Thuney and David Andrews.
