The Saints have traded OT Jamaal Brown to the Washington Redskins. Reports are that he takes over RT, Trent Williams plays LT and Artis Hicks competes with Mike Williams for the RG spot.The details
- "To acquire Brown, the Redskins essentially swapped picks in the 2011 draft, though the details are a bit complex. The Redskins already owed Philadelphia a pick as part of the McNabb trade. According to the ESPN report, the Eagles will receives Washington's 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 will receive the third-round pick and the Eagles will get the fourth.
"If the Saints end up with the Redskins' fourth-rounder, they'll send Washington a sixth- or seventh-round pick. And if New Orleans gets the Redskins' fourth-round pick, the Redskins will receive the Saints' fifth-round selection.
"A conditional 2012 pick is also involved in the Brown deal, according to ESPN. If the tackle plays 90 percent of the plays this season or is selected to the Pro Bowl, the Redskins must also send their sixth-round pick in 2012 to New Orleans."
Great news for McNabb and maybe even Portis/Johnson!
