Best Of Social Media: Trent Brown Happy To Be A Patriot Once Again, Teammates React Following TradeMark J. Rebilas - USA TODAY Sports

In his one season with the New England Patriots in 2018, tackle Trent Brown contributed to the franchise’s sixth Super Bowl championship before signing with the Las Vegas Raiders in the ensuing offseason.

Fast forward two years, the 6′ 8” Brown is back in Foxborough following a surprising trade on Tuesday.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Patriots sent the Raiders a 2022 fifth and seventh round pick for in exchange for Brown.

As part of the trade, Brown reworked his current deal, agreeing to a new one-year, $11 million contract as part of the agreement, allowing him to become a free agent after the 2021 season. Previously, he had two years and 29.5 million left on his initial contract with the Raiders.

During the start of 2019 free agency, Brown signed a four-year, $66 million contract with the Raiders, earning his first Pro Bowl selection in year one, but in 2020 would see action in just five games due to COVID-19 and additional health complications. Brown played in just 16 games over two seasons as a Raider.

Finances appeared to be the deciding factor for the Raiders to move on from Brown, according to ESPN Boston’s Mike Reiss, the team cleared almost $14 million in cap space. Prior to the trade, the Raiders had about $3 million in cap space.

The trade will not become official until the start of the new league year on March 17th at 4pm EST.

Over his Instagram Tuesday, Brown shared his excitement to the news with some photographs from his 2018 season in New England alongside a caption that read “I love it here”.

Brown additionally tweeted out some final thoughts of his time with the Raiders.

In the ensuing aftermath of the deal, a few of Brown’s Patriots teammates also shared their reactions over social media.
