The Oakland Raiders have agreed to sign the free agent to a four-year deal worth a record $66 million.
As New England's starting right guard, Brown went on to have a terrific year that ended in a Super Bowl LIII victory.
Believe it or not, the start of the 2019 NFL free agency period will officially get underway this week, as things have already been wild, even if the new league year hasn't technically gotten underway just yet.
For fantasy purposes, it is hard to justify calling the move to the Raiders as an upgrade for Brown, a four-time first team All-Pro wide receiver who set an National Football League record for six consecutive seasons with over 100 receptions and 1200 yards.
It could also spell the end of Kolton Miller's time at left tackle and the conclusion of Donald Penn's tenure with the Raiders.
Jon Gruden has his work cut out for him.
Broncos cornerback Chris Harris held Brown to 7.4 yards per reception previous year in Denver's 24-17 win over Pittsburgh. Along with the New York Jets, the Raiders are a candidate to sign Le'Veon Bell. They have four picks in the top 35 - will those be utilized to mostly fill voids on the defensive side of the ball?
ESPN's Field Yates was talking all day about how the Bears created a good chunk of change to spend in free agency by converting $13 million of Khalil Mack's base salary and roster bonus into a signing bonus.
"Referencing the 6'8" Brown as "big bro", Wynn (who is 6'2") expressed his satisfaction seeing a fellow lineman get paid. His uncommon combination of size and athleticism, along with his strong 2018 campaign in New England, set him up for his first big contract in the NFL.
