Oakland is in a position to give him plenty of money over the next few seasons, though they have used a portion of their more than $60 million in cap space on Brown.
The Patriots will have a new left tackle for the second straight year.
"Referencing the 6'8" Brown as "big bro", Wynn (who is 6'2") expressed his satisfaction seeing a fellow lineman get paid. Meanwhile in New England, some of his former Patriots teammates are loving it.More news: Chance the Rapper ties the knot in star-studded wedding

Brown, 25, has 47 game appearances and 44 starts through his four National Football League seasons.
Brown certainly earned a raise with his play during the 2018 season, and now he has a monstrous contract to match his mighty frame.
He missed one game with an injury a year ago, against, coincidentally, Detroit.
Brown has experience playing on both the left and right side but with the money he is getting from Oakland it appears more likely he would line up on the left to protect Carr's blind side. Odds are much better the Raiders prioritize a left tackle over a running back.
If the Steelers still view themselves as Super Bowl contenders for the next couple of seasons, then you can't argue with their logic.
