Cardinals Trade LT Levi Brown To The Steelers For A Conditional Draft Pick



Jason La Canfora reports that the Cardinals will pay $2.8 million of Levi Brown’s remaining salary, which means the Steelers will pay him just $840,000 for the remainder of the season.


Ian Rapoport reports that Levi Brown is on a plane to Pittsburgh to take a physical.

  • Rapoport adds that the trade with Arizona has been agreed to and the Cardinals will receive a conditional draft pick in return for Brown.


Jason La Canfora was first to report that the Arizona Cardinals have agreed to trade LT Levi Brown to the Steelers.

  • Pro Football Talk reports that it’s a “done deal” pending a physical.
  • Jason La Canfora is “hearing” that the Cardinals will receive a “late-round pick” for Brown.
  • Mike Jurecki reports that the Jaguars reached out to the Cardinals regarding a trade for Eugene Monroe, but Arizona passed on the idea.
  • Brian McIntyre notes that Brown will make $3.6 million in base salary for the remainder of the 2013 season.

This is an indication that the Steelers still believe they can turn their season around despite starting off 0-4. Brown, 29, was taken with the No. 5 overall pick a number of years ago, but has failed to live up to his draft status. He’s under contract through the 2016 season.

It’s interesting because the Cardinals could arguably use help at left tackle, as their overall offensive line has struggled this season. Meanwhile, the Ravens just traded for Eugene Monroe Tuesday night.

Pro Football Focus has Steelers LT Mike Adams listed as the No. 68 offensive tackle, while Brown comes in just a bit higher at No. 60.
