"He'll have a ton of suitors, but Oakland will be ready and is willing to spend for star power even after acquiring Antonio Brown", he reports. His effort was questioned at times in San Francisco and that was one of the reasons why he was dealt to New England a year ago during the draft. Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was sacked a career-high 51 times after being sacked a combined 36 times in 2016 and 2017. Brown, meanwhile, had a PBWR of 82 percent.
As for which scenario is more likely - Bell or Brown?
Eagles expected to sign Malik Jackson
Reports indicate the Bucs will get back a 2019 6th round pick and the Eagles will get the Bucs' 2019 7th round pick in the deal. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo confirms that the Bucs are shopping Jackson and a return to Philly is not out of the question.
But signing an elite running back like Bell would be a huge step in the right direction, and it would certainly give Washington a shot at getting back to the playoffs.
Miller, you will remember, was the team's first-round pick last season who battled through a knee injury and started all 16 games at. Well, as it turns out, there was actually a better offer on the table for AB's services.
Pro Football Focus had Brown giving up three sacks and 39 pressures in 744 pass-blocking snaps in the regular season for the Patriots.
The fear, then, is that Brown was merely a byproduct of the Patriots' success.
