While he had somewhat of a "down year" in New England, his potential is through the roof.
Kolton Miller was drafted to be the left tackle of the future, but if Brown shows up in Oakland with a big contract, there's no question that Miller would be moving over and competing at right tackle.
That's Patriots 2018 first-round pick Isaiah Wynn.
Brown certainly earned a raise with his play during the 2018 season, and now he has a monstrous contract to match his mighty frame. An remarkable athlete for his size, Brown posted a solid season protecting Tom Brady's blindside before becoming a free agent.
There is certainly risk attached to Bell because of his decision to sit out a year and all of the carries he took for the Steelers, but both the Jets and Raiders can afford to take that risk. Wynn, for one, says he's worthy of it. The deal is for four years and $66 million with over $36 million guaranteed. Curiously, news of the signing came less than 10 minutes into the start of the window where National Football League teams can begin negotiating with player agents. The Redskins have second-rounder Derrius Guice waiting in the wings and they don't have a ton of money to work with when free agency begins Wednesday.
