Le'Veon Bell breaks brief free-agency silence with 'torn' tweet

Brown will become the highest paid offensive lineman in National Football League history.

The New England Patriots will lose offensive tackle Trent Brown after he agreed to a four-year, $66 million deal.

Well, this ultimately sounds like he'll be coming to NY as the Jets may be the only team willing to dish out that money. He's the most likely candidate to step up at left tackle with Brown gone next season, but spent this past season on injured reserve. Oakland is in a position to give him plenty of money over the next few seasons, though they have used a portion of their more than $60 million in cap space on Brown.

One sleeper team for RB Le'Veon Bell: The #Raiders.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, "Oakland will be ready and is willing to spend for star power".


Despite earlier reports to the contrary, the Jets sound unified in their approach to free agency, and more specifically, Bell.

Brown played right tackle in San Francisco and was used at left tackle in New England, starting all 16 games in 2018.

However, the 27-year-old sat out all last season amid a contract dispute with the team. If Brown is heading to Oakland, this is another big move for first-year general manager Mike Mayock, who looks to have a knack for this whole GM thing.

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.
