The Las Vegas Raiders signed tackle Trent Brown in 2019 to take over the right side of their offensive line. Although his four-year $66 million contract may’ve been a bit too expensive, it’s paying dividends off the field.
Brown had an immediate impact on the Raiders as soon as he took over the right tackle position last season. Even though he played 582 snaps in 2019, he only allowed one sack. Also, he made it to the Pro Bowl last year and even received All-Pro consideration.
While waiting for the 2020 season to start, Brown is getting ready and making the most out of his time off the field.
The Work Didn’t Stop When the Season Ended For The Raiders Tackle
In a recent conversation with Anthony Galaviz of The Fresno Bee, Brown talked about what he’s currently doing ahead of the 2020 season. To begin with, the veteran tackle says he didn’t know how to approach this year’s offseason. After all, there have been plenty of restrictions regarding social gatherings during the pandemic.
It was tough in the first beginning. My trainer and I didn’t really know how to approach the whole workout situation.
Eventually, Brown and his agent were able to figure things out without much hassle. They ended renting workout equipment and he started training at home.
About two to three weeks into the quarantine, my agent reached out to one of my old trainers and helped me order my gym stuff and it was kind of a quick turnaround ordering stuff for my home gym. Working out is a lot easier … super easier, a lot more easier … I really just been trying to get it in the best I can.
Proactive During the Offseason
Brown hasn’t exclusively spent his time doing exercise. Besides staying in football shape, he’s spent more time with his family and helping those in need.
Regarding his family, Brown says he’s making the most out of the outdoor restrictions and his time at home.
Just focusing on my father time with my kids. That’s been the biggest takeaway for me through the whole quarantine thing. I’ve actually been able to spend time with them since we’re not in OTAs.
Moreover, Brown’s donated $20,000 to help buy supplies for students in Clark County School District.
When they explained to me who it will be going to I was definitely trying to make sure it will be going to those who were in need. Just really for those who can’t afford it and really need it so they can continue their work for school from home. It was special to me because I just launched my foundation, TB77 Cares, and for that to be the first big thing we’ve done, it was kind of special to me.
There was no doubt Brown gave everything he had on the NFL field. This past offseason, he’s shown he can keep going once the whistle blows.
