Brown was cut by Philadelphia on Wednesday, Daniel Gallen of PennLive reports. Brown received the start at right guard in Sunday's loss to Baltimore as the offensive line struggled, giving up six sacks during the contest. Brown will likely look for a practice squad or depth role elsewhere around the league.
Brown signed a contract with the Eagles on Tuesday. Brown was signed from Chicago's practice squad and will give the Eagles some much needed depth on the offensive after Carson Wentz was sacked a career-high eight times in Sunday's loss to Washington.
Brown was released by the Falcons on Monday, Kelsey Conway of the team's official site reports. The 27-year-old started nine times for the Falcons during 2019, but this move would indicate that the team is comfortable with what it has along the interior offensive line. Rookie third-round pick Matt Hennessy has been taking the majority of his reps at guard rather than center, while Chris Lindstrom, James Carpenter and Matt Gono all continue to get significant reps at the guard spots as well. Brown has recently cleared concussion protocol, and he will now seek an NFL opportunity elsewhere.
Brown has entered concussion protocol, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The veteran offensive guard missed time last week due to illness, and now with padded practices beginning in earnest, he has been removed from team drills and is being evaluated for a concussion. Brown is expected to fill a backup spot along the interior offensive line, but it will be interesting to see how youngsters Matt Hennessy and Matt Gono take advantage of extra opportunities while Brown recuperates.
Brown (illness) missed his third consecutive practice session Saturday, Jason Butt of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The veteran guard continues to sit out with an illness, but it has been reported that the issue is not COVID-19-related. Brown may serve as a depth option this year after starting nine times during 2019, but even in a non-starting role, he remains one of the most skilled and experienced backup offensive linemen on the roster.
