Brown made his season debut last week with the Texans after holding out for the first six games of the season due to a contract dispute. He has one more year on his current deal, which is worth $53.4 million over six seasons. He signed the deal back in 2012.
The Seahawks get a top-tier player in a position of need on the offensive line for Russell Wilson. The deal comes less than a day after the Texans squared off with the Seahawks in one of the best games of the season. Seattle won the game 41-38.
The Texans also receive a 2018 fifth-round pick and a 2019 second round pick, along with cornerback Jeremy Lane. The former John Tyler star has been in the shadows at times with the vaunted Seahawks secondary and will now go back to his home state and give Houston a much needed boost in the secondary.
Lane has started in 19 games and recorded two interceptions during his time in Seattle. He has recorded eight tackles in five games this season. The Texans will look to bounce back on Sunday as they host the Indianapolis Colts at NRG Stadium.
