Seattle Seahawks eyeing Duane Brown?

The Seahawks are being linked to several players, including Brown, Seattle PI reported. According to the report, they are looking for another left tackle after losing George Fant to a knee injury for the rest of the season.

Seattle recently signed Dwight Freeney to a one-year deal, but talks about a possible chase for Brown have not died down. Discussions about a potential trade grew louder after Brown ended his holdout, which made him miss the first six games of Houston in the 2017 NFL season.

The Seahawks [VIDEO] were also linked to Joe Thomas. However, the Cleveland Browns left tackle went down with an injury, leaving Brown as their best possible LT target.

Will the Houston Texans move Duane Brown?

Brown and the Texans had disagreements earlier in the season, which fueled the trade talks involving the 32-year-old veteran. It was unclear during the holdout if he would play for Houston again this season. Talks about a possible trade spread since the Texans know that trading Brown is logical. The former Virginia Tech standout only has one guaranteed year in his contract and the Texans will attempt to get something in return instead of losing him for nothing. However, ESPN reported that the Texans are not planning to trade Brown at this point. In fact, Houston head coach Bill O’Brien said that Brown will likely play on Sunday against Seattle [VIDEO] even if he missed their first six games of the season.

“Yes, I would say he would have a real good shot to play on Sunday,” O’Brien told reporters when asked if Brown will play against Seattle, the Houston Chronicles reported. It should also be noted that left tackle Chris Clark is down with a strained calf, which could leave O’Brien with no other choice but to play Brown in their next game.

Brown also added that he is indeed ready to make his season debut for Houston on Sunday. He said that he kept himself in shape during the holdout and just needs to make little adjustments to the speed and terminologies on their plays this season.

The Texans are currently third in the AFC South standings with a 3-3 record. A win against the Seahawks, who are in second place in the NFC West standings with a 4-2 card, will help Houston gain a share of the lead in the division.
