Perhaps the Redskins don’t have to draft an offensive tackle at No. 4 overall because they could get one in a trade.
Jason Reid of the Washington Post reports that the Redskins have reached out to the Saints regarding tackle Jammal Brown.
Brown has had some injuries of late, but is a two-time Pro Bowl tackle. He has the athleticism Mike Shanahan looks for in a tackle. The Saints are believed to be open to moving Brown.
Of course, these trade talks could be rendered moot in about five minutes if the Redskins do indeed take a tackle.
