Report: Raiders, OT Brown agree to richest OL contract in history

Offensive tackle Trent Brown will join the Oakland Raiders on a four-year, $66 million deal, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The deal, with an average value of $16.5 million, would be the highest yearly pay for an offensive lineman. Taylor Lewan of the Tennessee Titans has a five-year deal worth $80 million — $16 million annually.
Brown’s deal would guarantee $36.75 million, according to the report.
The report of the deal came just nine minutes after the beginning of the NFL’s legal tampering window.
Brown, who turns 26 in April, was a seventh-round draft pick by the San Francisco 49ers in 2015. He was traded to the New England Patriots ahead of the 2018 season and started every game during their title-winning campaign.
The Raiders were in the market for offensive line help after agreeing to trade Kelechi Osemele to the New York Jets.
