The terms of Jacksonville’s trade involving Saints defensive tackle Malcom Brown have now been released. According to Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football, the Jaguars are sending a seventh-round pick for the 27-year-old.

The news of the compensation for Brown’s trade was confirmed by Brett Martel and Mark Long of the Associated Press on Wednesday. However, it’s unclear which of the Jaguars’ two seventh-round picks was part of the trade. The team picks at No. 229 and No. 250.

This trade makes sense for both sides. Jacksonville needed depth on the interior defensive line and had lots of draft capital, while the Saints were likely to release Brown anyway and now at least recoup some value for him.

Brown spent the last two seasons in New Orleans after spending the first four of his career with the New England Patriots, who drafted him 32nd in 2015. His most productive seasons came with them, and his play has slowly declined since then. With the Saints in 2020, he made 26 tackles (the least of his career) with one sack in 13 appearances.

Brown’s addition gives the Jags a nose tackle to rotate with rookie DaVon Hamilton. It also gives Hamilton a proven veteran who is a solid run stuffer to learn from.
