Trent Brown is returning to New England and from the looks of it he couldn't be happier.  The Patriots have acquired the offensive tackle and a 2022 seventh-round pick from the Raiders for a 2022 fifth-round pick.

Brown celebrated the move on social media.


The Patriots are making a big splash in advance of free agency, bringing back a familiar face to do it.

New England is expected to trade for Raiders offensive tackle Trent Brown, sources say, with the two sides coming together on a deal that was a few weeks in the making.

Brown has reworked his deal, agreeing to a new one-year, $11 million contract as part of the agreement, per sources, allowing him to be a free agent after the 2021 season. Previously, he had two years and 29.5 million left on his Las Vegas contract.

The teams will be swapping draft picks as part of the deal, sources say, with the Raiders receiving a 2022 fifth-round pick in exchange for Brown and a 2022 seventh-round pick.

Coming with Brown back to New England is his incredible tattoo.  Id' like to think the ink played a role in Bill Belichick's decision to bring him back.
