The Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans have gotten the trade deadline off to a hot start.

According to Adam Schefter, left tackle Duane Brown is going to the Seahawks in exchange for Jeremy Lane, their 2018 fifth-round pick and a 2019 second-round pick.

Brown held out for a contract extension earlier in the year, returning to the team just last week. Brown has started every game he's played in for the last nine seasons.

The Seahawks were shopping for a left tackle on the market this week, and they got their guy.


In exchange, the Texans get another cornerback who started four games this season. They also acquire valuable draft picks to help sustain long-term success.
