After holding out for the majority of the season, Duane Brown finally suited up for the Texans against Seattle and today he has been shipped out to Seattle.
Houston Texans: All season long it was one of the topics of discussions and that is when or if the Texans will pay Duane Brown his much-deserved contract extensions? The Texans now do not have to deal with Brown’s contract demands as he has been traded to a team they just played Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks. Heading to Houston is cornerback Jeremy Lane and two draft picks (2018 fifth-round pick, and a 2019 second-round pick). Jeremy Lane, 27, has been dealing with a groin injury and his play has taken a step back due in part of it. When healthy, Jeremy Lane is a solid corner and adds solid depth to their cornerback core.
Seattle Seahawks: The Seattle Seahawks entered the season with offensive line issues and it continues to be a trend but the addition of Brown helps bolster the protection of Russell Wilson. Duane Brown, 32, will immediately take over as starting left tackle and then starting tackle Rees Odhiambo will be regulated to being a backup for the foreseeable future. Duane Brown will transition to the Seattle’s playbook this week before facing a tough test in week nine against Washington and taking on the Adam Carriker lead defense.
Final Grades: Seattle Seahawks: A+ | Houston Texans: B+
