Seahawks acquire HOU OT Duane Brown



  • Just announced on by Adam Schefter:

    Seattle has traded for OT Duane Brown, source tells ESPN. Brown is out of Houston and will go to Seattle



  • Adam Schaffer tweets:

    Full trade: Seahawks traded CB Jeremy Lane, a 2018 5th-round pick and a 2019 second-round pick to Texans for OT Duane Brown, per sources.



  • I also read that Brown has agreed to restructure his deal. Can't say I like the loss of the 2nd rounder, but if it pays off, it pays off big.



  • Losing draft picks is never a great thing based on how well the Seahawks have drafted collectively under John/Pete... but this is s 2019 draft pick, so this player wouldn't even play for 2 more years.

    Brown is signed through 2018 and they may be extending him.

    With how poorly OLs are graded out of the draft, I think this is the best move for the Seahawks. Acquiring a LT that can solidify the OL and give the young guys a chance to learn more than on-the-fly (like Pocic) bodes well for our future in protection.

    This is a move to protect Russell who has played lights out so far this year. Unless Brown absolutely tanks, the Seahawks won't feel this loss for 2 years. I think it's worth the bet.

    And Seahawks have moved to a 9/1 favorite to make the Superbowl; highest in the NFC.



  • Think Pocic holds on to LG? Even when Joeckel is healthy?



  • I love the trade. Lane was has already been replaced IMHO. A 2019 2nd rounder is worth what today? A 4th rounder? So basically two 4ths and Lane for a front line LT for at least another 1.5 years.



  • @volsunghawk said in Seahawks acquire HOU OT Duane Brown:

    My guess:

    • LT Brown
    • LG Joeckel
    • C Britt
    • RG Pocic/Aboushi
    • RT Ifedi

    Back-ups

    • LT Odhiambo
    • LG Aboushi
    • C Pocic
    • RG Glowinski
    • RT Battle

    Joeckel seems to have played well prior to his knee scope that was suppose to just be one week but here we are 3-weeks later.



  • I agree with Sammy...but I hope they at least consider keeping Pocic at LG. To me he looked like the best guy on the line Sunday, with Britt obviously still far from 100%



  • Run blocking has been terrible and I think that Pocic didn't look good in run-blocking.

    Joeckel seemed to have done better. I think that would make more a better left-side three veterans stacked from LT-LG-C.
