Brown has been released by the Panthers, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
Brown's release comes just days after he signed with the Panthers. The veteran apparently didn't do enough in his short time with the team to convince Carolina to keep him going into the regular season, so he'll now hit the open market once again.
Brown is signing with the Panthers, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
Released by the Chiefs last week, Brown will likely still need to fight for a spot on Carolina's final roster. The 29-year-old safety has made 20 starts in 55 career NFL appearances, but he's never been able to match the promise of his eight-interception 2012 campaign with the Giants.
Brown was released by the Chiefs on Wednesday.
Brown hasn't played since 2014, and he's never come close to his 2012 form, which saw him record eight interceptions, two forced fumbles, and 76 tackles, since tearing his ACL in 2013. He appeared in line for a role backing up Ron Parker and Eric Berry in Kansas City, but it looks like the team had other ideas. Look for Jamell Fleming to see an increased role in Brown's absence.
Stevie Brown 's agent announced Friday that the 28-year-old safety has signed with the Chiefs, Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports.
Brown was most recently with the Giants last preseason before being among the team's final round of cuts before Week One. Both Brown and Jimmy Wilson both signed with the Chiefs on Friday, which adds depth to a secondary that just lost Husain Abdullah to retirement. The two safeties could find themselves battling for the same backup strong safety spot once training camp gets underway.
