Texans Trading OT Duane Brown To Seahawks For CB Jeremy Lane & Draft Picks

Adam Schefter is reporting that the Texans are trading LT Duane Brown to the Seahawks for CB Jeremy Lanea 2018 fifth-round pick and a 2019 second-round pick.

  • Pro Football Talk reports that it would not be surprising to see Brown get an extension that wipes out the 2018 year of his current deal.

This shouldn’t come as a big surprise. Recent reports have connected the Seahawks and Brown for the past few weeks as a potential match, considering that Seattle could really use an upgrade at left tackle.

Brown was, arguably, the best available option at this point in the year and he should be a welcomed addition to the Seahawks’ offensive line.

Brown, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Texans back in 2008. He’s currently in the sixth year of his seven-year, $56.2 million contract that includes $22.08 million guaranteed and stands to make base salaries of $9.65 million and $9.75 million over the next two years.

Brown skipped all of training camp and summer workouts and then held out of the first eight weeks of the season for a new contract. However, the Texans never gave in and he ultimately reported to the team last week.

In 2017, Brown has appeared in one game for the Texans.
