15. Trent Brown
Recent history foretells that franchises should be very apprehensive about offering big contracts to former Patriots. Bill Belichick’s biggest success was creating a winning system that enabled every player to play a role. However, several Pats’ stars struggled after leaving Foxborough. Brown enjoyed a strong 2019 and even made the Pro Bowl for the first time after the Raiders made him the highest-paid tackle in the league.
But 2020 has seen him spend an unreasonable amount of time on the injury list. Brown’s $66 million contract keeps him in Las Vegas until 2023. There is time for him to recover and show the type of form that Raiders’ fans expect from a man enjoying a hugely lucrative deal. He remains in his prime, which is why Las Vegas is under pressure to get top play from him, or it will be money severely wasted.
