Brown, 29, became a free agent when the Washington Redskins discharged him on March 13.
Middle linebacker became a necessary for Eagles As their star player Jordan Hicks left them and joined with the Arizona Cardinals in free agency. Brown will assist and contribute for the team with the players like Nigel Bradham, Kamu Grugier-Hill, Paul Worrilow, Nathan Gerry and L.J. Fort.
Though Brown played well last Season he needs to concentrate more on consistency. As he was unable to play well last season Redskins left him this season. He was transferred as a backup role four the final four games. It was an insult for him and he was searching for a good team for showing his latency. After his benching, Brown said he could see the “writing on the wall” with his time in Washington.
Brown, was first picked by Tennessee in 2012, he proceeded the Pro Bowl two years ago in his only season with Buffalo. The Redskins, searching someone who can handle his defense line so they contracted Brown the coming offseason to a one-year deal. He tried his best to give feedback to his team and he managed with a team-best 127 tackles, Though he has to miss three games. He was managing the NFL in tackles when he got hurt in Week 14.
They re-signed him last offseason to a three-year deal worth up to $24 million, though the decision was not viewed as a consistent one throughout the organization. Another team The Oakland Raiders also showed their interest in Brown last season. His statement saves $5.75 million in cap space.
Brown was expendable when Redskins made a pair with Foster on November. They played the same inside linebacker but unfortunately, they couldn’t bring any fortunate for their team. So it was necessary to sack Brown for his team.
Last season was really bad for Brown off form with injury brought trouble of his career. Maybe this season he can start afresh kick for him and for his team as well.
