Former Patriots OT Trent Brown signs one-year deal with Bengals

Former New England Patriots offensive tackle Trent Brown signed a one-year deal with the Cincinnati Bengals. The news was confirmed by the Bengals on Tuesday.

Brown was a fixture for the New England offensive line during his time with the organization. He played in 53 games and started in 49 of them over the course of two separate stints in New England. He was able to win a Super Bowl with New England in 2018.

The 2023 season was a difficult one for Brown, who played in 11 total games with eight starts. The lineman became disgruntled towards the end of the season, and he openly discussed his frustrations with the previous regime.

New England will now have to find a new left tackle, and they can do that via either free agency or the draft. A new start for both Brown and the Patriots organization may have been a smart move for both parties.
