More protection for Brady - Patriots acquire OT Trent Brown from 49ers

  • Report Patriots Acquire Tackle Trent Brown From 49ers

On Friday morning, roughly 12 hours later, ESPN's Field Yates reported that the 49ers traded Brown and a fifth-round pick, No. 143 overall, to the New England Patriots. Brown consistently struggled with his weight in San Francisco and the Niners had concerns about handing him a big contract knowing that it could always be an issue.

Brown, a three-year veteran, has started 26 games at right tackle for San Francisco. Last season, he played in seven games with six starts for the Seahawks.

Brown is recovering from surgery to fix a torn labrum in his right shoulder.

The former Gator provided plenty of value as a former seventh-round pick in 2015.




Brown injured his shoulder during practice on Thanksgiving Day previous year. He started all 16 games in 2016 and 10 a year ago before succumbing to a torn labrum.

The 49ers get a player better suited for Shanahan's offense, while avoiding all the scheme-fit, injury-worry and pending contract concerns Brown would have been associated with had he remained with the team. His massive size has been a hindrance to pass rushers but doesn't mesh particularly well with the team's zone-rushing style. They expect him to take over at right tackle while Joe Staley continues to man the fort at left tackle. For comparison, Solder had a 75.7 grade (32nd overall) and Cannon was graded at 78.1 (26th overall). When healthy, he is regarded as one of the premier pass-blocking offensive tackles in the league.

"He is the best right tackle in the National Football League, if not a top-five offensive tackle, period", Miller said a year ago after a joint training camp practice between the Broncos and Niners. Brown is a mauling right tackle with long arms who has battled conditioning issues.

With reports from the Providence (R.I.) Journal and the Sacramento Bee.
