Report: Patriots expected to acquire Trent Brown from Raiders
The Patriots will also receive the Raiders' 2022 seventh-round pick in the deal in exchange for New England's 2022 fifth-round selection.
Brown, who won a Super Bowl with the Patriots in 2018, will reportedly rework his contract to a one-year, $11-million deal to facilitate the move.
His arrival in New England could foreshadow the departure of right tackle Marcus Cannon. Cannon holds a $9.6-million cap hit for 2021 but would only account for a dead-cap charge of $2.6 million, per Spotrac.
Brown struggled to stay on the field with the Raiders, playing in just 16 games over two seasons.
