Brown posted a team-high 10 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's win over the Rams.
Brown has now led the Redskins in tackles in each of their first two regular season games, showing that the team made the right decision in starting Brown at inside linebacker. With Brown having played 49 of the team's 50 defensive snaps, he should continue to rack up impressive numbers in the coming weeks.
Brown recorded 12 tackles (seven solo), including two tackles for loss in Sunday's loss to the Eagles.
Brown led the Redskins in tackles on Sunday and was a menace to the Eagles run-game. The former-Bills' linebacker won the starting inside linebacker gig this preseason and his performance Week 1 seemed to prove the Redskins made the correct decision.
Brown spent all of Wednesday's practice taking reps with the first-team defense, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.
Brown did not get the start in the Redskins' preseason opener against Baltimore, but he was out there for the team's second defensive stand. However, given that Brown took every first-team rep Wednesday, may show that the coaching staff is leaning in a certain direction with their starting unit. It's possible that they're just exploring different combinations at linebacker, but it's definitely a situation worth monitoring over the next couple of weeks.
Brown was one of the best free agent players remaining on the market. He had 149 tackles, including 4.0 sacks, and four passes defensed with the Bills last season. With the Redskins he'll compete with Mason Foster and Will Compton for one of the two starting inside linebacker positions.
Brown will visit with the Redskins on Monday, ESPN's John Keim reports.
Coming off a 149-tackle, four-sack season, Brown has been disappointed with the market for his services, leaving trips to Miami, Oakland and Buffalo without a new contract in hand. The Redskins have both of last year's starting inside linebackers -- Mason Foster and Will Compton -- on the current roster, but Brown would be an upgrade from either one. He may ultimately settle for a one-year contract that allows him to test the market again next offseason.
