Jammal Brown out of New Orleans?

Citing a source in Washington, our Adam Schefter reports the Redskins are close to finalizing a trade for New Orleans offensive tackle Jammal Brown.

Don’t get your hopes up too high, Saints fans, because Schefter said disgruntled Washington defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth isn’t part of the deal. We’ll find out what the compensation for Brown is, but it might just be a draft pick or picks.

Brown has been looking for a long-term contract from New Orleans, but the Saints have made it clear that’s not in their plans at the moment. They got by with Jermon Bushrod when Brown missed all of last season with an injury and all indications are they’re prepared to cut ties with Brown.
