Las Vegas Raiders' offensive tackle Trent Brown is expected to be traded to the New England Patriots.

Ian Rapoport was the first to report the news.

Reports say Brown reworked his deal to a one-year, $11 million contract as part of the agreement.

This allows Brown to be a free agent after the 2021 season.

Before, Brown had two years and $29.5 million left in his contract with the Raiders.

It is not yet known what the Raiders will get in return for Brown. It is expected the teams will be swapping draft picks in 2022.

Brown will be returning to the Patriots, having had a stint with New England for one season in 2018 before moving on to the Raiders.

During the 2018 season, he started every game for the Patriots and won a Super Bowl with them. That set the bar high for Brown’s expectations and he signed a four-year, $66-million deal with the Silver and Black.

However, after a promising 2019 campaign which included a selection to the Pro Bowl, Brown played in only five games last season. He spent time on the Reserve/COVID-19 list and was hospitalized after a pre-game IV caused air to enter his bloodstream.

From the Raiders' perspective, they simply weren’t getting enough use out of him when the Silver and Black were paying a lot of money to protect quarterback Derek Carr.

Perhaps Brown will have better luck with the Patriots.

As for the Raiders, they're moving on from Brown.
