The Houston Texans have traded tackle Duane Brown to the Seattle Seahawks. In exchange, the Texans are receiving corner back Jeremy Lane, 2018 fifth-round pick an a 2019 second-round pick.
Brown just played at his future home, CenturyLink Field, on Sunday as the Texans visited the Seahawks. Seattle won 41-38.
The Seahawks have been reportedly been working om this deal for the past month. The Philadelphia Eagles after Jason Peters went down with a season-ending injury were interested in the 32-year-old.
He reportedly wanted to go to Seattle, who then got the deal done.
Brown was the Texans first-round draft pick with the 26th overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft. Like the Eagles, the Seahawks were also in need of offensive line help as George Fant went down in August with a season-ending torn ACL.
He recently returned to the field after a six-week holdout, as he wanted an extension or a trade. The Seahawks reportedly saw enough on film during Sunday’s game that they had to make a deal.
Brown played in a 133 games with the Texans in his 10-year career. Lane spent his entire career with the Seahawks after being their sixth-round draft pick in 2012.
The 27-year-old has only played in four games this season (Weeks 5-8) and has 15 tackles. In six seasons, he has 124 tackles, 15 pass deflections, two interceptions and a forced fumble.
Lane was a member of the Super Bowl XLVIII Seahawks team as they defeated the Denver Broncos at MetLife Stadium.
