Top Zach Brown News

  • Zach Brown: Subject to waivers

    The Cardinals waived Brown on Wednesday, Scott Bordow of The Athletic reports.

    Brown will now seek his third team of the year, as he played six games with the Eagles before being cut and signing with the Cardinals, where he was a healthy scratch in every contest. The 2012 second-round pick nearly recorded his third consecutive 100-tackle campaign when he posted 96 stops for the Redskins last year, so he could play a role wherever he lands.

  • Cardinals' Zach Brown: Lands in desert

    The Cardinals signed Brown to a contract on Friday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

    Brown was released by the Eagles on Oct. 14, and he now joins Arizona's active roster following the decision to cut Alfred Morris. The veteran linebacker appeared in six games with Philadelphia this season, recording 31 tackles (17 solo) and two defended passes. He stands to bolster the Cardinals' inside linebacker corps.

  • Zach Brown: Let go by Eagles

    Brown was released by the Eagles on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    The timing of this move is interesting, as Brown made headlines speaking negatively about Vikings' quarterback Kirk Cousins prior to Sunday's loss. The veteran linebacker is expected to receive interest from from other teams around the league. He has accumulated 31 tackles (17 solo) and two passes defended in six games this season.

  • Eagles' Zach Brown: Logs seven tackles in loss

    Brown notched seven tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Lions. He also defensed a pass.

    Brown has logged back-to-back games of five solo and two assisted tackles after opening the season with just two. He played 53 of the Eagles' 64 defensive snaps in this one, second only to Nigel Bradham's 63 among linebackers. The 29-year-old should continue to see a solid number of opportunities Thursday in a Week 4 road tilt with Green Bay.

  • Eagles' Zach Brown: Returns to practice

    Brown (oblique) took part in Monday's OTA, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    Brown joined the Eagles on a one-year deal in early May, and Monday is the first open session of practice in which he's participated. According to Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News, the 29-year-old was working with the second-team nickel defense as he makes his return from the torn oblique that plagued him throughout the 2018 season.

  • Zach Brown: Signs on with Philadelphia

    Brown (oblique) signed a one-year contract with the Eagles on Friday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Brown spent the past two seasons in Washington, averaging 7.7 tackles per game in 29 appearances (25 starts) while battling a number of injuries. He peaked in 2016 with 149 tackles and four sacks for Buffalo, and he's generally displayed impressive pass-rushing skill for an inside linebacker with 17.5 sacks in 94 career games. The 29-year-old should have an edge over L.J. Fort to replace Jordan Hicks (Cardinals) as the starting middle linebacker in Philadelphia's 4-3 defense. There's no shortage of IDP upside if Brown can secure a three-down role, though it isn't clear if he's made a full recovery from the oblique injury he played through last season.

  • Zach Brown: Cut loose by Washington

    The Redskins released Brown (oblique) on Wednesday, Mike Jones of USA Today reports.

    Signed to a three-year, $21 million contract last offseason, Brown saw his production drop off to 96 tackles (69 solo) and one sack in 2018 after averaging 138 stops and 3.25 sacks between the previous two seasons. Poor health may have explained his backslide, with Brown revealing in late December that he played through a torn oblique for much of the season. The 29-year-old inside linebacker should be able to find another starting job, but there's no guarantee of a return to the elite IDP status he held in 2016 and 2017.

  • Redskins' Zach Brown: Struggled through injury in 2018

    Brown said that he played through the 2018 season with a torn oblique and "should have sat out," JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    Brown finished up the year with 96 tackles, one sack and two forced fumbles, a stark decrease in production compared to his last two seasons. It now appears that part of the reason for Brown's statistical regression can be attributed to playing through a torn oblique for much of 2018, which the veteran linebacker describes as having been "painful every day." Brown will benefit from a full offseason to recover from his injury and attempt to bounce back in 2019. However, amidst reports that the Redskins are considering moving on from Brown, the 29-year-old's next chance could come elsewhere in the league.

  • Redskins' Zach Brown: Disappears from injury report

    Brown was not listed on the Redskins' injury report Wednesday.

    Brown's absence from the injury report raises some suspicion regarding his future with Washington. Reports surfaced early Wednesday that Brown could be on his way out, but it seems nothing is imminent. His disappearance from the injury report could indicate that the Redskins are prepping to move on. On the flip side, Shaun Dion Hamilton's (shoulder) uncertain status could be reason to keep Brown around for the short-term and thus his removal from the report. Either way, we should know soon what the future holds for Brown.

  • Redskins' Zach Brown: Could be facing release

    Brown (illness) said he sees "the writing on the wall" with respect to his future in Washington, John Keim of reports.

    Brown missed part of Sunday's 40-16 loss to the Giants with what was believed to be an illness. As Keim reports, however, it now appears that coach Jay Gruden benched Brown on Sunday instead. Washington opted to start Shaun Dion Hamilton in Brown's place, but Brown ended up in the game after Hamilton sustained a shoulder injury. Brown has 80 tackles (56 solo) and two forced fumbles over 13 games this season.

  • Redskins' Zach Brown: Limited by illness

    Brown didn't start Sunday's 40-16 loss to the Giants due to an illness, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

    Brown was listed as questionable after being limited by the illness at practice, and the Redskins opted to start Shaun Dion Hamilton instead despite Brown being active. The 29-year-old had only two tackles and didn't register a stat until the second half, when he stepped in to replace Hamilton after the rookie suffered a shoulder injury.
