Inside the eventual Trent Brown contract

On Wednesday (or soon thereafter), the Raiders and left tackle Trent Brown will execute a four-year, $66 million contract, with $36.75 million fully guaranteed. Although the terms are subject to change, here’s a look at how the deal is expected to be constructed, once it’s signed.

In lieu of a signing bonus, Brown will receive a $10 million roster bonus and a $5 million base salary in 2019, along with a $250,000 workout bonus. Next year, Brown will receive a fully-guaranteed base salary of $21.25 million, along with another $250,000 roster bonus.

The deal also consists of base salaries of $13.75 million in 2021 and $15 million in 2022, along with $250,000 workout bonus each year.

The cap numbers will be $15.25 million in 2019, $21.5 million in 2020, $14 million in 2021, and $15.25 million in 2022.

Again, the deal won’t be final until it’s signed, and Brown or the Raiders can (in theory) choose not to proceed.

  1. The Raiders are crazy and Gruden will be fired in 2 years and it will take another 5-6 for the organization to recover from all these bad moves. Don’t get me wrong, I am a Pats fan and loved Brown last year, but this is crazy money. Brady’s quick release helped to make this guy look so good. Not going to happen like that with the Raiders.

  2. So a two year deal, as all guarantees are done after year 2. And no signing bonus carrying dead cap potential on the remaining years.

    Mayock doing it right! As I and others have stated before, shorter deals with roster bonuses instead of signing bonuses are becoming the norm.

  3. Brown was most valuable in the running game, particularly downfield against smaller but presumably quicker players.

    He usually made the block.

  4. Looks good, nicely done by Mayock. Subtract Khalil Mack’s contract, add Trent Brown and it still leaves a 7 million a year contract difference the Raiders way. With only 40% of the guaranteed money ($90 million) given to Mack.

  5. Trent Brown was let go by the Niners because he is “okay” at best. WAY overpaid. There is a reason that the Pats didn’t want him back either. He can be good but he is super inconsistent.

  6. I wish the reporters would correctly report these contracts; the better way would be a 2 year contract at $36.75 and then a team option for year 3 at whatever price and another option for year 4 at whatever price. And since their is no signing bonus there is no prorated money over the “4” years. Almost the same as Solder if the 6% salary cap increase is figured in.

    This guy gets it!

  8. This signing ADMITS that Kolton Miller has a long ways to go and based on the fact that Gruden has the LAST WORD……I certainly hope he listens more to Mayock than he did McKenzie.

  9. Trent was very good for the Pats and we were lucky to have him, especially after Wynn went down for the season. It looks like he becomes ANOTHER player who comes in and plays well for the.Pats and goes and collects the payoff with another team. I wish him luck against the other 30 teams in the league.

    The Pats will be by next season to collect that 3rd round comp pick in return.

  10. It’s that time of year when teams overpay Patriots free agents.

    The O-Line still has Mason, Andrews, Thuney, and Wynn. Waddle is also a free agent and they may want to do a deal with him of spend some draft capital on the O-line.

  11. Getting traded to NE was the best thing that ever happened for his career. Got a ring now he’s getting paid.

  12. So the PFF 32nd ranked OT is now the highest paid tackle in the game?!? Maybe Mayock should have stayed an analyst.

    The impact of Mack is far more than a middling offensive lineman. The Raiders well overpaid for this guy.

    That’s not true at all. He was let go for schematic reasons, not performance. Shanahan runs a zone blocking scheme and and prefers his tackles to be athletic and mobile (Chip Kelly’s scheme is more a blend of zone and gap approaches). The 49ers considered Brown to be strictly a gap blocker and thought McGlinchey was the best tackle in the draft. They also had conditioning concerns about Brown, who is listed at 380 but was well over 400 in SF.

    Brown has lost a lot of weight since his SF days, and although the Pats are a gap team, he displayed enough athleticism with his lighter frame to think he could succeed in Cable’s blended approach.

  15. “This signing ADMITS that Kolton Miller has a long ways to go and based on the fact that Gruden has the LAST WORD……I certainly hope he listens more to Mayock than he did McKenzie.”

    I was thinking the exact same thing. I was never thrilled with the Miller pick. If he doesn’t get it together, it will be another wasted Raiders first round pick.
