The New Orleans Saints have agreed to trade former Pro Bowl left tackle Jammal Brown to the Washington Redskins for a 2011 draft pick, general manager Mickey Loomis announced Saturday.

A day earlier, wide receiver Lance Moore agreed to a one-year, $1.759 million restricted free-agent tender.

Brown, 29, started 58 games at tackle for the Saints from 2005-08. He missed the 2009 season with sports hernia and hip injuries, and unheralded Jermon Bushrod emerged as a capable starter at left tackle in his absence. He appeared in the 2006 and 2008 Pro Bowls.

The 6-6, 330-pound Brown has started at right and left tackle in his pro career and seems likely to start at one of those positions for Washington, which also figures to start rookie Trent Williams, the No. 4 overall pick, at tackle. Williams, like Brown, attended Oklahoma.

Moore, 26, caught 14 passes for 153 yards and two touchdown in 2009. He missed nine regular-season games with hamstring and ankle injuries. Moore caught five passes for 32 yards in the playoffs.

The 5-9, 190-pound Moore, who is entering his fifth NFL season, caught 79 passes for 928 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2008.
