When the Patriots acquired the Browns from the Las Vegas Raiders in March 2021, it was the second time the team had traded for him (the 49ers also dealt with the Patriots in 2018). Brown is the fourth NFL player since 1980 to be traded to the same team multiple times, joining Jerome Harrison (Eagles, 2010, 2011), Mark Hermann (Colts, 1983, 88) and Walter White (Cardinals, both times 1980). ).
The 6-foot-8, 380-pound Brown was sidelined with a calf injury he sustained in the opening series last season. He missed the next eight games, before settling in the starting role in the right tackle on his return, ending the year with nine straight games (including the playoffs) and helping cement the New England offensive line as one of the team’s strengths.
The Browns’ 2019 and 2020 seasons with the Raiders were similar in terms of injuries (and the absence of COVID-19), appearing in just 16 of 32 potential matches.
Upon returning to New England in 2021, Brown said, “I’ve worn a lot of jerseys in my life, but I’ve never been more proud than when I wore the Patriots jersey.”
Brown, who turns 29 on April 13, has had left and right tackle experience in seven NFL seasons.
