Over the weekend, it was announced that the Steelers had shipped disgruntled wide receiver Antonio Brown to the Oakland Raiders in exchange for a a 3rd and 5th round selection in the upcoming draft.

"Referencing the 6'8" Brown as "big bro", Wynn (who is 6'2") expressed his satisfaction seeing a fellow lineman get paid.

Brown was solid in his first and only year in New England, but many have pointed out he had a lot to play for given it was a contract year. Brown started all 19 games for the Patriots, and didn't miss a snap throughout their playoff run, which culminated with a victory over the L.A. Rams in Super Bowl LIII.

He missed one game with an injury past year, against, coincidentally, Detroit. The Raiders allowed 52 sacks, tied for fifth-most in the league, as left tackle Kolton Miller and right tackle Brandon Parker were overpowered at times against NFL competition.

Prior to 2018, he rushed for more than 1,200 yards in three of the past four seasons and is one of the NFL's most versatile backs. They sent left guard Kelechi Osemele to the Jets. Given that Bell undoubtedly is eyeing a lofty contract himself, one has to wonder just how much Oakland would be willing to spend. His effort was questioned at times in San Francisco and that was one of the reasons why he was dealt to New England previous year during the draft.

Pro Football Focus had Brown giving up three sacks and 39 pressures in 744 pass-blocking snaps in the regular season for the Patriots.
