Patriots Acquire Trent Brown From 49ers
The New England Patriots have acquired Trent Brown and the No. 143 overall pick from the San Francisco 49ers for the No. 95 overall pick.
Brown traveled to New England on Thursday to undergo a physical.
Brown is considered one of the NFL's best pass-blocking offensive tackles. Brown's contract expires after this season and the 49ers are looking for more of a physical run-blocking tackle. The 49ers selected Mike McGlinchey with their first round pick.
Brown landed on injured reserve last December with a shoulder injury that required surgery.
The Patriots, who had success in 2017 with a four-man depth chart at offensive tackle, are in a state of transition at the position with starting left tackle Nate Solder (Giants) and top swing tackle Cameron Fleming (Cowboys) departing in free agency.
