Reacting to Bleacher Report’s 4 trade proposals for Commanders
By Jerry Trotta
3. Dyami Brown to Seattle
Commanders get: CB Sidney Jones
Seahawks get: WR Dyami Brown
The only player swap on this list, this trade would actually make sense for both Washington and Seattle. We are NOT in favor of trading Brown, who was clearly hindered by Taylor Heinicke’s poor arm strength as a rookie. That’s not to say Brown didn’t disappoint, but his ability to track the deep ball will be a much better fit with Carson Wentz, who was among the NFL’s best deep-ball throwers in 2021.
At the same time, however, the Commanders are thin at cornerback and Jones’ ability to play inside and outside is pretty appealing. Not to mention, he was rock-solid for the Seahawks after they acquired him from the Jaguars. According to PFF, the 26-year-old corner allowed a lowly 58.3% completion rate, a 71.2 passer rating and zero touchdowns when targeted.
Jones has been an upward trajectory for three years now and he’d provide needed depth to a Washington secondary that’s thin behind Kendall Fuller, William Jackson III and Benjamin St-Juste. And while St-Juste was all the rage during OTAs and minicamp, he needs to prove he can stay on the field after he suffered two separate concussions in quick succession as a rookie last season.
Something else worth mentioning is Jones could struggle for playing time in Seattle after they signed Artie Burns and Justin Coleman in free agency and drafted Coby Bryant and Tariq Woolen. Not only that, but Tre Brown, a starter in 2021, will be returning from a torn ACL.
Would you make this trade, Commanders fans?
