The Washington Redskins traded a third or fourth round pick for Saints offensive tackle Jammal Brown. He's only 29 and went to the Pro Bowl in 2006 and 2008. He hadn't missed a game in his NFL career until a hip and sports hernia knocked him out of all 16 games last year.
Should Scott Pioli have tried to make a move on Jammal Brown?
Obviously this is trade involves a certain degree of risk and the Redskins aren't exactly known for their personnel moves. But not too long ago Jammal Brown was the guy people mentioned as the prototypical left tackle.
The guy is a mountain with ballerina feet. In the 2008 season he was best run blocking left tackle in the NFL and only allowed 3 sacks. Because he's quick and has high football intelligence he's considered an ideal tackle for a zone blocking scheme.
Hell wouldn't he be nice insurance policy if Branden Albert got hurt?
If anyone has any insight into the extent of his injuries that would make for some lively discussion too.
