The New Orleans Saints are trying hard to move up in Saturday’s draft for a shot to draft defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey of LSU, and one of the pieces they are shopping in a trade is left tackle Jammal Brown, according to a league source.

Brown, who has 43 starts in his three seasons in the league, is considered one of the better young tackles in the game, although his play dropped off some in 2007.
Brown went to the Pro Bowl in 2006 as a second-year player and was named to the All-Pro team. The decision to include Brown in trade talks shows the seriousness of the Saints and their want for Dorsey.
To get to Dorsey, the Saints would likely have to work out a deal with the St. Louis Rams to get the second pick. The Rams also like Dorsey, so it might be tough to pry that pick away. The Saints own the 10th pick in the first round, and Dorsey would certainly be gone by then.
The Atlanta Falcons, who own the third pick, are also interested in Dorsey. They could move up to the second spot to make sure the Saints don’t jump them to get Dorsey.
Brown was the 13th player taken in the 2005 NFL Draft. He started at right tackle as a rookie, so he can play both.
In 2006, Brown was charged with domestic abuse after his wife dialed 911 and told police her husband had struck her. The charges were later dropped.

Editors Note: I think this would be an amazing deal for the Saints. Jammal Brown is totally overrated in my opinion.

Zach Streif has been a fine fill-in for Brown and would be a solid player at the position.

He and Jermon Bushrod could battle for the left tackle position along with a potential draft pick from this year’s class.

In essence the deal is Jammal Brown for Gelnn Dorsey….If I were Saints GM I’d do it in a second and never lose a wink of sleep!

  1. I agree: This would be a good deal for the Saints, to trade Jammal Brown to get Glenn Dorsey. Jammal Brown is highly overrated.
