Former Patriots LT Trent Brown Reportedly Signing 4-Year Deal With Raiders

So maybe we should not be all that surprised that apparently, the Raiders will not be chasing after Le'Veon Bell. because they don't have the cash to sign him.

The Raiders had $36 million committed to their offensive line in 2018, the fourth most in the National Football League, according to ESPN Stats & Information. He's the top player on the market and he's always been rumored to be a potential target of the New York Jets. He is about to become the NFL's highest-paid offensive lineman, according to a report from Adam Schefter of ESPN.

With Trent Brown reportedly heading out the door, the Patriots may have a ready-made replacement at left tackle waiting in the wings.

The deal includes $36.75 million in guaranteed money for Brown. Now he'll be protecting the blind side of Derek Carr.

Brown played right tackle in San Francisco and was used at left tackle in New England, starting all 16 games in 2018. What about re-signing versatile Jon Feliciano, who is an unrestricted free agent and started at left guard when Osemele was hurt before going on injured reserve himself late in the season and was also Rodney Hudson's backup at center?

Brown was at his best in the playoffs, including shutting down the edge rushers for the Chargers and Kansas City in playoff wins before the Patriots won the Super Bowl against the Rams. He'll have a ton of suitors, but Oakland will be ready and is willing to spend for star power even after acquiring Antonio Brown.
