The Raiders agreed Tuesday to trade Brown (knee) and a 2022 seventh-round pick to the Patriots in exchange for a 2022 fifth-round pick, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
Brown had two years remaining on a four-year, $66 million contract, but he's agreed to restructure to a one-year deal worth up to $11 million, perhaps knowing he'd be released if the Raiders weren't able to trade him. This is the second time New England has traded for Brown, having previously acquired him from the 49ers in April 2018. He then had arguably the best season of his career, which led him to Oakland (and then Vegas) on the aforementioned massive contract. Brown missed 16 games in his two years with the Raiders, but he earned respectable PFF grades both seasons (68.9, 69.1) and he's still young enough (28 in April) to rediscover his top form if he stays healthy. There hasn't been any indication that Brown's knee injury from the end of the 2020 season is serious, so he'll likely be lined up at one of the tackle spots when the first-team offense takes the field at training camp.
The Raiders have made Brown (knee) available for trade, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
Brown is on the trade block, though Fowler also notes that the Raiders could consider retaining him for 2021. Were it not for the soon-to-be 28-year-old's $13.75 million salary for next season, Las Vegas likely wouldn't even be considering parting ways with Brown. As is, though, the team is in a tricky position, especially considering that two starters along the O-line (Gabe Jackson and Richie Incognito) are already being let go.
Browns (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.
Brown didn't practice all week and will sit out the season finale. The Raiders have been eliminated from the playoffs, so Brown's season is over. The 27-year-old offensive tackle has two years remaining on his contract.
The Raiders activated Brown (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.
Brown tested positive for the virus in October and endured complications during his recovery, including a stay in the hospital after a pregame IV resulted in air entering his bloodstream. The 27-year-old looks poised to return to the lineup this Sunday against the Jets, and he should reclaim the starting right tackle role if the practice week goes as planned.
Brown (illness) isn't expected to see game action for two or three weeks, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.
The 27-year-old can resuming working out sometime this week, but he'll apparently need a couple weeks to ramp up before reaching game readiness. Brown has been limited to two games this season for the Raiders.
Brown (illness) may be cleared to resume working out as early as next week, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Brown has been sidelined since he was first placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Oct. 21, though he was briefly activated at one point before being placed on the reserve list again. An official timetable for the standout right tackle's return remains undisclosed, but Schefter notes that he intends to play again this season, and gaining clearance to resume working out would be the first step toward that goal.
Brown (illness) is expected to remain sidelined for at least a month after he was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday for the second time this season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Brown was first placed on the list Oct. 21, but he's asymptomatic and was activated from the list ahead of last week's game in Cleveland. However, Brown ended up sitting out that contest after a mishap with an IV he received prior to the game resulted in him being hospitalized. Since the ill-fated IV, Brown has experienced renewed COVID-19 complications, resulting in his return to the list. Sam Young is expected to step in as the Raiders' starting right tackle for as long as Brown is sidelined.
The Raiders placed Brown (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.
Brown was activated from the COVID-19 list last Friday and he attempted to play Week 8, but a pre-game IV caused him to be hospitalized after air entered his bloodstream. The starting right tackle now appears to have developed complications related to COVID-19, making uncertain when he'll ultimately retake the field.
Brown (illness) was released from the hospital Tuesday and will head back to Las Vegas, Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Brown went to the hospital Sunday after a pregame IV resulted in air entering his bloodstream. The 27-year-old was evaluated over the last two games, and he's recovered enough to board a plane and fly back to Nevada. It's unclear how this will affect him moving forward, but we should know more when the Raiders start practicing again Wednesday.
Brown (illness) stayed in the hospital overnight and continues to be tested after the medical mishap prior to Sunday's game, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.
The 27-year-old was transported to the hospital after a mistake with his pre-game IV resulted in air entering his bloodstream, and he continues to be evaluated. Brown was activated from the COVID-19 list Friday, but the unfortunate incident Sunday prevented him from retaking the field. It's unclear when he'll be able to rejoin the team.
Brown (illness) was hospitalized prior to Sunday's 16-6 win over the Browns due to a pregame medical mishap, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
An incident with Brown's pregame IV resulted in air entering his bloodstream and required immediate medical attention. The starting right tackle, who was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, will now remain hospitalized overnight to undergo additional evaluation. It remains to be seen whether Brown will be available against the Chargers in Week 9.
Brown (illness) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Browns, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Brown was activated from the COVID-19 list Friday and remains clear of any COVID-related symptoms, but he's apparently still feeling the effects of an unrelated ailment. Sam Young should remain the starter at right tackle for the Raiders.
The Raiders activated Brown (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Jerry McDonald of The Mercury News reports.
Coach Jon Gruden hinted that this was a possibility earlier in the week, and now the team has made it official. There's still no guarantee that the 27-year-old offensive tackle will be ready for Sunday's game against the Browns, and Gruden relayed Friday that his status likely will depend on his conditioning. Sam Young will start at right tackle if Brown can't go.
Coach Jon Gruden said Monday that Brown, who is on the reserve/COVID-19 list, has a chance to return for Sunday's game versus the Browns, Bill Williamson of RaidersSnakepit.com reports.
This is encouraging news for the Raiders, as interim right tackle Sam Young exited this past Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers with a knee injury as well. Brown would be a major boost to a Raiders' offensive line that just got bullied by the Buccaneers' front seven, but he'll still need to clear the league's COVID-19 protocol before returning to action.
Brown (reserve/COVID-19 list) is asymptomatic following his positive COVID-19 test, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
This is a positive development regarding Brown's status for Sunday's matchup against Tampa Bay, though affected members of the Raiders remain isolated as the league sorts through contact tracing. The 2019 Pro Bowler has already missed three contests this season because of a calf injury, though he'll have a chance to suit up Sunday so long as he can clear the NFL's COVID-19 protocols. His services are sorely needed, as Las Vegas takes on a Buccaneers defense Week 7 that is tied for second in the NFL with 3.7 sacks per game.
Brown is being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Brown has had minimal contact with his teammates as the Raiders are coming off a bye and players weren't at the facility Tuesday. The team's facility remains open at this time, and Sam Young is primed to slot into the starting right tackle role if Brown isn't cleared ahead of Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.
Brown (calf) is active Week 5 against the Chiefs.
Brown logged a full week of practice -- even though a few sessions were limited -- but will be healthy enough to give it a go in Kansas City. He'll presumably slot right back into his starting right tackle role.
Brown (calf) is officially questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Chiefs, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.
Brown logged a full workload to close out the week, so he appears to be trending in the right direction. Look for Sam Young to get another start at right tackle if Brown is ultimately unable to go, but final confirmation on his status will depend on how he is feeling closer to kickoff.
Brown (calf) is inactive for Sunday's game against Buffalo.
Brown didn't practice all week and was listed as doubtful, so he was never expected to suit up Sunday. Sam Young is set to receive another start at right tackle in his place.
Brown (calf) is considered doubtful for Sunday's game versus the Bills, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.
After not practicing all week, it's not surprising that Brown likely won't play Sunday. Sam Young is expected to start at right tackle once again.
