Report: Redskins Acquire Tackle Jammal Brown

According to Jeff Duncan of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the Washington Redskins and New Orleans Saints have reached a deal that would send offensive tackle Jammal Brown to D.C. Terms and compensation of the deal have not yet been confirmed.

Brown anchored the Saints' offensive line since being drafted 13th overall in 2005 until missing all of 2010 due to a sports hernia injury. Brown was voted to the Pro Bowl in 2006 and 2008, and was also named as a First-Team All-Pro in 2006.

Similar to a certain player on the Redskins, Brown has been sitting out all Saints organized team activities this offseason, so the trade will not come as a surprise to their fans. He's been seen as the odd-man-out on the Super Bowl winning New Orleans offensive line.

This is a big move for the Redskins offensive line, which struggled mightily at times in 2009. Brown plays the same left tackle position as Redskins first round draft pick Trent Williams, which could force the rookie to move to the right.

Unfortunately for Redskins fans, the trade is not expected to involve Albert Haynesworth. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
