Las Vegas Raiders

The Las Vegas Raiders are losing one of their most talented defensive tackles. Unlike the Patriots, the Raiders deploy a defensive scheme involving two tackles which means they become a more important part of the defense.

If the Raiders didn’t feel like signing Jonathan Hankins back to a plus $10 million deal, they could explore this trade option where they give away a middle-round pick for the Saints’ defensive tackle that could replace Hankins.

This would be a win-win for both teams. New Orleans gets a pick in which they can use to replace Brown with a substantially lower-cost tackle. Las Vegas, on the other hand, gets a cheaper replacement for Hankins.

That would leave Las Vegas plenty of room to attack another big-name free agent or trade candidate. If they don’t think that Brown is worth a fourth-round pick, they could knock it down. Getting anything would benefit New Orleans.
