Could Le'Veon Bell be the next Steeler to join the Raiders?

That makes him the highest-paid offensive lineman in National Football League history.

The legal tampering period for free agency has barely even begun yet and already the Oakland Raiders have handed out the two largest contracts of the offseason. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Oakland Raiders are expected to sign offensive tackle Trent Brown to a four-year, $66 million dollar contract that has almost $37 million in guarantees.

Wynn wasn't alone in his excitement for Brown's new deal.

However, New York does know it doesn't want to be used as leverage for Bell to strike a deal somewhere else - like Oakland.

The Raiders have gotten a big head start on rebuilding a team that won just four games in coach Jon Gruden's first season back on the sideline.

But his departure leaves a giant void on the New England offensive line, with second-year lineman Isaiah Wynn likely taking over for Brown at left tackle.

Brown certainly earned a raise with his play during the 2018 season, and now he has a monstrous contract to match his mighty frame. His effort was questioned at times in San Francisco and that was one of the reasons why he was dealt to New England past year during the draft.

Brown was at his best in the playoffs, including shutting down the edge rushers for the Chargers and Kansas City in playoff wins before the Patriots won the Super Bowl against the Rams.
