Seattle Seahawks (yes, still) cornerback Jeremy Lane failed his physical for the Houston Texans on Tuesday, meaning that the Seahawks were forced to include a higher draft pick instead of Lane to complete the deal for Duane Brown.
Here are the new details on the trade:
New Duane Brown trade details per John McClain:— Jayson Braddock (@JaysonBraddock) October 31, 2017
2018 - 5th Rd pick
2018 - 3rd Rd pk
2019 - 2nd Rd pk
We don’t know yet how this will effect the cap, as Lane was set to alleviate some of that pressure by being traded to Houston. It may be that Russell Wilson has renegotiated his deal just enough to make it work.
Lane recently missed two games with a groin injury, though the team pulled him after only six snaps in Sunday’s 41-38 win over the Texans. Apparently he still was not healthy enough to make the transition to Houston’s defense.
On the bright side, Seattle still gets their left tackle. On the downside, they now have no day two picks on the schedule for 2018. Given their love of day two picks though, you’d think that will be changing leading up to and on the days of the draft. Either by trading down, trading up, and/or compensation picks.
As of right now, both Lane and Brown appear to be Seahawks.
