After ‘almost’ dying last season, an ex-Raider considered retirement.

Trent Brown is reviled by Raiders fans in Las Vegas.

Fans despise him for missing as many games as he played during his two years with the team and throwing shade after he left.

With the Raiders, he missed 16 games in two years, and with the Patriots, he has missed eight games this season.

He’s back on the field now, and he played last week, but it’s difficult to put your faith in him.

In his seven-year career, he’s only played a full season twice.

Brown may struggle to stay healthy for the remainder of his career.

Raiders still have a problem with right tackle.

For whatever reason, the Raiders’ right tackle position has proven to be a difficult one to solve, even for the previous…
