The Raiders are giving Brown left tackle money, as it is becoming ever so clear that the team plans to build around Derek Carr. While he had somewhat of a "down year" in New England, his potential is through the roof. The 49ers made Brown a seventh-round draft pick out of Florida in 2015 and traded him to the Patriots on April 27, 2018, in exchange for moving up in the draft from the No. 143 overall pick to No. 95. With no one else on the roster at left tackle, Wynn will likely be charged with protecting Tom Brady's blindside.
The 27-year old Pro Bowler has rushed for over 1,200 yards in three of his last four National Football League seasons, and he racked up more than 1,800 yards from scrimmage in each of those three Pro Bowl campaigns.
Brown was solid in his first and only year in New England, but many have pointed out he had a lot to play for given it was a contract year. Linebacker Ja'Whaun Bentley didn't get into specifics, but still showed his support for his former teammate cashing in big. The news of an agreement came just hours after the NFL's legal tampering window opened Monday at noon.
