Report: Sheldon Brown to Browns
The trade is contingent on Brown gaining a new contract.
That will mark the end of Brown's solid, if unspectacular 8-year tour with the Eagles.
The employer-empolyee relationship got ugly prior to the 2009 season when Brown felt the Eagles were big-timing his request to secure a contract extension and asked for a raise.
The Eagles refused to take care of him. Instead they issued a statement accusing Brown of deflating his own trade value.
At one point last season Brown came out for the pre-game introduction wearing a Jason-type ski mask depicting the character from the Halloween movie series. Brown's point was that no matter what the Eagles did, they couldnt kill his career, just like Jason couldn't be terminated.
Gocong, a third-round pick in 2006, lost his starting job last year to rookie Moise Fokou. Gocong might be better suited to playing in the Browns' 3-4 defense.
The Eagles could use the Browns picks to trade for Seahawks guard Rob Sims (6-3, 312), a restricted free agent.
