Steelers Trade for Levi Brown
The Cardinals have agreed to terms on a trade that will send LT Levi Brown to the Steelers.
There’s suddenly a left tackle arms race in the AFC North.
After the Ravens [URL="http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/10/01/report-ravens-acquire-eugene-monroe-in-trade-from-jaguars/"]made a move last night[/URL] to get[URL="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/5198/eugene-monroe"]Eugene Monroe[/URL] off the Jaguars, the Steelers are trying to keep pace.
According to Jason LaCanfora of CBSSports.com, the Steelers and Cardinals are “[URL="https://twitter.com/JasonLaCanfora/status/385405484003758080"]hammering out[/URL]” a trade which would send[URL="http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/4185/levi-brown"]Levi Brown[/URL] to the Steelers.
