  • Report Patriots Acquire Tackle Trent Brown From 49ers

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, traded Brown and their fifth-round pick (No.143) to the Patriots in exchange for their third-round pick (No.95).

Brown, a two-year starter at right tackle, became expendable in expedited fashion once the 49ers drafted his replacement, Mike McGlinchey, at No. 9 overall in Thursday's first round.

Brown figures to be in good position to play immediately for the Patriots, who look like they're building their offensive line with former SEC East after adding Wynn to play alongside former Georgia center David Andrews.

Brown passed a physical Friday at the Patriots facility to ratify the trade, NFL Media reported. Last season, he started all 10 games that he played in with nine starts at right tackle and one at left tackle before landing on injured reserve.

Brown, a seventh-round pick from the 2015 NFL Draft, has surely exceeded expectations and is one of the positive holdovers from the Trent Baalke era.


The Patriots drafted Wynn with the No. 23 overall pick on Thursday.

"Since we arrived past year, Jaquiski has impressed us with his play, his work ethic and the kind of teammate he is", general manager John Lynch said.

So, combing through all the details, San Francisco making a move for McGlinchey, then parting ways with Brown, checks off all the "makes sense" boxes.

The team lost veteran Nate Solder to the Gi Giants and versatile tackle Cameron Fleming to the Cowboys, both via free agency this offseason.

As you might imagine, Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio didn't really entertain this storyline when asked about it on Friday night.
