Zach Brown: Deciding between Oakland and Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown is believed to be deciding between the Raiders and Dolphins, The Miami Herald reports.

Brown visited with the Raiders and Dolphins, then went back to Buffalo to explore a reunion with the Bills. He apparently didn't like what he heard in Buffalo, narrowing his decision down to the other two teams. With contract offers falling shy of what he expected, Brown might consider taking a one-year deal that allows him to hit the market again next offseason, even though he just enjoyed a breakout 2016 campaign with 149 tackles (97 solo) and four sacks.

Zach Brown: Scheduled to visit with Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown is scheduled to visit with the Bills after he completes his visit with the Dolphins, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Brown changed agents during his trip to Miami, suggesting he's unhappy with how negotiations have panned out through the first two weeks of free agency. Coming off a 149-tackle, four-sack season in Buffalo, it's surprising to see Brown still available on the market. He's one of the top remaining free agents at any position and is only 27 years old. Regardless of where he ultimately lands, Brown should have a three-down role that allows for continued IDP excellence. He probably expected to be outside of Buffalo's price range, but that's seemingly no longer the case.

Zach Brown: Meeting with Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown is scheduled to make a free-agent visit with the Dolphins, Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel reports.

Brown ranked second league-wide with 149 tackles this past season, but with the Bills making room for last year's first-round pick, Reggie Ragland (knee), Brown has been free to gauge interest in him on the open market. After disappointing play from their linebackers last season, the Dolphins already signed veteran Lawrence Timmons this offseason and placed a first-round tender on Kiko Alonso, but potentially signing Brown could give them a third starter at the position. A second-round pick in 2012, Brown has posted an impressive 410 tackles, 14 sacks and seven interceptions in four healthy seasons.

Zach Brown: Visiting with Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brown is visiting with the Raiders, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Never lacking in talent or big-play ability, the 2012 second-round selection finally put together an elite IDP season in 2016, notching 149 tackles (97 solo) and four sacks while patrolling the middle of the field for Buffalo. Regardless of where he lands, Brown should be ticketed for a three-down role that allows for continued statistical prowess. Oakland is a strong fit, with the team having a a clear need at middle linebacker amidst an otherwise talented defense.

Bills' Zach Brown: Surprise season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Brown finished the 2016 season, his first as a Bill, with 149 tackles, four sacks, four passes defensed, and two forced fumbles.

Brown was a cheap offseason pickup by the team that wasn't even supposed to start, but injuries opened up a hole for him and he thrived right from the get-go to become of the league's better IDPs. Kudos to you if you caught onto that early and enjoyed Brown's tackle barrage every week. Unfortunately, the Bills only signed him to a one-year deal and have a new coaching staff coming in, so we'll see if the two parties can work out a new agreement.
