The New England Patriots acquired offensive lineman Trent Brown in a trade with the San Francisco 49ers prior to the season, and the former Florida star ended up playing a massive role for the Super Bowl champions as Tom Bradya€™s left tackle.

Wynn, a former Georgia star, was expected to become New Englanda€™s left tackle when he was drafted 23rd overall last year.
