Raiders to make Trent Brown highest paid OL in National Football League history


Wynn wasn't alone in his excitement for Brown's new deal. A person familiar with the contract said Monday that Brown will receive $36.75 million guaranteed in the richest contract ever for an offensive lineman.

"Referencing the 6'8" Brown as "big bro", Wynn (who is 6'2") expressed his satisfaction seeing a fellow lineman get paid. "Either way, if you want to invoke a recent Raiders trade, this is the same organization that used third- and fifth-round picks to trade for Martavis Bryant and AJ McCarron under Jon Gruden's watch".

Many questioned Pittsburgh's return in this deal.

The Raiders were linked to Le'Veon Bell early this morning and now another high profile free agent seems to be in the mix to sign in Oakland.

In addition, Brown had the benefit of playing opposite of JuJu Smith-Schuster and other talented wide receivers over the past few seasons. I've heard the Jets, Ravens and Texans listed as interested teams, but no one seems to know who's going to pay Bell $12-13 million a year or more. But the 22-year-old has been recovering and could compete for the spot Brown appears to be vacating.

The Raiders had $36 million committed to their offensive line in 2018, the fourth most in the National Football League, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

A couple of different franchises have been mentioned for Bell, though none has received more hype than the New York Jets.
