Brown plans to sign a four-year, $66 million deal with the Raiders, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Per the report, Brown's deal will include $36.75 million guaranteed. That's quite a hefty sum for a player who effectively established his market value with a single strong season at left tackle for the Patriots. The 6-foot-8, 380-pounder, who was drafted by the 49ers in the seventh round of the 2015 NFL draft, will now be counted on to help protect QB Derek Carr, who now has star wideout Antonio Brown to throw to.
Traded from San Francisco to New England during last year's draft, Brown was a 19-game starter (including playoffs) at left tackle for the Patriots. He technically can still re-sign with New England, but it seems the 25-year-old may have priced himself out of the team's range.
Brown (back) is "just fine" despite having been forced to exit Sunday's 34-10 loss to the Titans, Michael Giardi of NFL Network reports.
Brown was questionable to enter the Week 10 tilt due to a lingering illness, and he ultimately exited the contest due to an undisclosed back injury. The starting offensive lineman will benefit from a bye week to get healthy, and he'll attempt to return in time for New England's game against the Jets in Week 12.
Brown is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Titans due to a back injury.
Brown was questionable to enter Sunday's game against the Titans due to an illness, and appears to have suffered an unrelated back injury. As long as Brown remains sidelined, expect LaAdrian Waddle to slot into the starting lineup.
