Details on Redskins' trade for Jammal Brown

[Updated at 6:32 p.m.]

The New Orleans Saints have confirmed that Jammal Brown has signed his tender and has been traded to the Redskins.
 
 Still no official word from the Redskins on the deal, and we don't expect any until after he passes his physical, which is expected to take place early this evening.

ESPN's Adam Schefter has some details on what exactly the Redskins are giving up to acquire Brown, and it appears Washington will enter next year's draft -- assuming there is a draft next year -- with no picks in the third or fourth round -- but they will be adding a late-round pick. The details are a bit complex.

You'll recall the Redskins owe Philadelphia either a third- or fourth-round pick as part of the Donovan McNabb trade. According to the ESPN report, Philadelphia receives the third-round pick and New Orleans the fourth if the Redskins win nine games, make the playoffs, or McNabb is selected to the Pro Bowl. If none of those things happen, the Saints receive the third-round pick and the Eagles are stuck with the fourth.

But wait, there's more. If the Saints end up with the Redskins' fourth-rounder, New Orleans will send Washington a sixth- or seventh-round pick. And if the Saints end up with the Redskins' fourth-round pick, they'll send Washington their fifth-round pick.

According to ESPN, an conditional 2012 pick is also involved in the Brown deal. If the tackle plays 90 percent of the plays this season or is selected to the Pro Bow, then the Redskins must also send their sixth-round pick in 2012 to New Orleans.

Simple, right?

Sounds like a good deal to me for a young pro bowl offensive tackle!

Happy about the move but I guess I'm the only one sour we took a RT at 4 overall with so much other good talent like Eric Berry around

I don't wanna here no more crying about the Skins O-Line... this unit will DOMINATE!!!

Huh, so there's two different scenarios involving the Saints getting our 4th round pick?

Trent Williams will start off at LT and Jamal Brown will play RT. Even if Trent does end up playing RT it will only be temporary for the first year or two. Not a wasted pick at all.

Posted by: cboyhater | June 19, 2010 6:25 PM | Report abuse

"...bruce and shanny, u guys are doing a marvelous job dissecting and filling the needs for this team...."

Indeed they have.

And their patience--and persistence--is outstanding.

If you remember back after FA started, folks howled like mad dogs after a sorry string of vet linemen seeking big paydays came and went.

The smart people reminded us all that after the draft and OTAs, teams will look at their rosters, evaluate, and find some players worth dealing.

Bruce Allen was quoted as saying that free agency is a long process, not just the month after February.

It looks like this prudent process has yielded us a young pro bowl tackle to go with the 1st rounder we drafted.

The FO's wait and see approach has paid off.

Like it always does.

i believe it's if saints get skins 3rd, skins get saints 5th.

if saints get skins 4th, skins get saints 6 or 7th.

At least we have the extra 4th in 2012 from the J-Campbell trade.

So instead of drafting a guy like Rhinehart in the 3rd, they grab a proven player with something to prove, in a contract year...

Nice move.

"The New Orleans Saints have confirmed that Jammal Brown has signed his tender and has been traded to the Redskins."


Meanwhile, last year's starting left tackle Levi Jones turns to his agent out of anger, and asks, "Now explain to me again why you told me not to take the deal they put on the table for me back in February!!"

"Fool, I played myself!!!"

Bruce Allen is truly his father's son. The Redskins are setting up to win for the next 2-3 years, but given what this city expects unless they make a SB appearance by 2013 the team will have to rebuild, again. Maybe they'll be able to trade whatever mid-range talent they have for mid-range draft picks in the future, but this team has to win NOW, which is so DanSnyder-ish. Again, he's doing his best job to get Redskins nation excited and thus buy tickets and stuff without one game having been played. Folks should wait until the first 4 games before getting on the wagon; make this team earn our support.

Posted by: pdfordiii | June 19, 2010 6:40 PM | Report abuse

Odd trade, but it works for me.

If the 'skins can make THAT deal (they have) they should be able to wrangle a third or high fourth at WORST for Haynesworth.

Let's say it's a THIRD.

SO the 'skins got Donovan McNabb AND Jamaal Berown for ALbert Haynesworth and a 4th rounder and all those mid-late round switcheroos on a speculative basis..

Knowing what we know about Haynesworth, I'd say that's a good trade.

Not sure if I like the loss of another draft pick, but one thing is for certain: Williams-Dockery-Rabach-Hicks-Brown is a hell of a lot better than our front five last season.

Posted by: brian71490 | June 19, 2010 6:54 PM | Report abuse

Brown, Silver Back, Doc, Williams, Corey, with the depth they picked up in the draft and free agency should do the job. Throw in the running backs, a solid QB, and some monster TE's and its a good group. The OL is young which bodes well. WR still scares me.

Yeah, you are the only one sour.

Trent Williams is off the hook for 2010. He doesn't have to be Chris Samuels out of the gate against the likes Mario Williams, Demarcus Ware, Julius Peppers and the host of other elite pass rushers we go up against this year. He moves to RT for a year or two while Jamaal Brown holds on the fort on McNabb's blindside. Barring injury, there's literally no downside to this move.

The O-line just went from a weakness to a strength. As long as Williams moves to LT in the next year or two, that 4th overall pick isn't a waste.

Let's not...since we're dealing in reality, here.

Unless Vinny gets a job with another NFL team in the next couple days, I doubt we get more than a 4th. This offseason has been all about the fire sale...trading away high-end talent for low-end rates. Think Wal-Mart shopping on NFL rosters.

I mean, DMac was a franchise QB on a perennial playoff team and went for a 2nd rounder and change. I doubt a fat, lazy malcontent is going to go for a rate anywhere similar.

Oh, and LOL at Moe on the Levi Jones joke. I wouldn't be shocked to see the next post on PFT be something about Jones firing his agent, haha.

Dude, get a life. You come on here and constantly rant about the same crap. Big splash, huh? Yeah, getting a LT is a money making scam for Snyder. Why don't you go protest outside the stadium, instead of sitting behind your computer making as much difference as us "Snyder supporters".

hessone, why don't you go to the Cowpies blog or something? I mean, even Debbie Downer says you need to buck up, dude.

Allen's father built up the Skins the same way back in the day and last time I checked, they were pretty good. Within a touchdown of knocking off the undefeated Dolphins in the SB. So unless and until the current regime f*cks it up, get a grip.

I mean, really...if everything the Skins do is such a burr up your a s s, why don't you go follow another team?

Great move getting Brown, but they are giving up two decent draft picks. If they would have drafted Okung in the first place they could have avoided this. This move wasnt done because they wanted to solidify the line. It was done because they realized Trent Williams was going to get McNabb killed. The more things change the more they stay the same. Bringing in marquee players and mortgaging the future. At least the price tag isnt as hight for this one.

I would have preferred Okung too, but regardless, they still needed another OT. Lot's of talented rookie OT's start off on the right side before being switched over. I see no problem with this. A 3rd or 4th for a Pro Bowl tackle in his prime is not mortgaging the future, especially when you might get a 4th rounder back for Fat Al. Alot of Saints fans are not happy with this trade, so that should be telling you something.

OR...they thought Trent Williams was the better player for what it is they want to do. And they got Brown because they realized they could get him for pennies on the dollar and they could solidify the tackle spot much better than they could relying on the likes of Artis Hicks and Stephon Heyer.

Look, I've been just as punch drunk as the next Skins fan. But Vinny's gone, people. Time to stop applying the anti-logic from the f-ed up Matrix of Doom that Vinny laid out on us and start thinking like a fanbase with a competent FO.

Michael Lombardi on NFLN says that Brown is going to play RT and Trent Williams will still play LT. I'd rather hear this from Shanahan, but still gives reason for all the conspiracy theorists can calm down...

This deal makes me feel a lot more comfortable, confident even, with our O-line. Up to this point I thought that the line moves they had made were a good start, but we still were only an injury away from big problems. Now our starters look like they will be pretty darn solid, and our depth players don't scare me half to death anymore.
Now if we can get back even a 4th for Fat Albert, we'll pretty much be back to even for this trade. Now... Where's P.T. Barnum's proverbial sucker?

Posted by: kaasmaster | June 19, 2010 8:21 PM | Report abuse

I love this move, and will let the Shannies choose how to play Williams and Brown. Suffice to say that we now have a solid OL. Just what we were hoping for since January!
