Former Raiders and Patriots’ new OT Trent Brown said that playing for Las Vegas was not a good fit for him.
“I wasn’t really feeling the place of work, I guess you could say,” Brown said, via Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Brown said he has “no hard feelings” with the Raiders’ organization but reiterated that he wanted to re-sign with the Patriots after a difficult time with Las Vegas.
“No hard feelings to them or anything, but I guess you could just say it wasn’t a good fit,” Brown said. “And I felt like I wanted to be back somewhere where I’ve worn a lot of jerseys in my life, but I’ve never been more proud than when I put on the Patriots jersey.”
