No extension yet for Jammal Brown

Per multiple media reports, left tackle Jammal Brown is in Washington, taking a physical. We’re told that, if he passes, Brown will sign his tender offer and then he will be traded to the Redskins.

But while efforts have begun to sign him to an extension, we’re told that no extension will be finalized in the short term -- and that Brown has no complaints in that regard.

Apparently, he’s sufficiently interested in getting out of New Orleans, where he had been Wally Pipped by Jermon Bushrod (which we suppose is better than being Jermon Bushrodded by Wally Pipp) to accept the one-year, $3.619 million contract with no firm commitment to a long-term contract.

Now the question becomes whether he or Trent Williams will become the Redskins’ left tackle. The other guy will likely head for the right side, which pays less money unless the quarterback is left-handed.

Meanwhile, word is that the Redskins did not have to give up much for Brown. Jay Glazer of FOX has reported that the Saints will receive a conditional draft pick. Already, the Redskins have committed to sending a third-round pick or a fourth-round pick to Philly in 2011 to finalize the Donovan McNabb trade, based on whether certain triggers are met in 2010.
