Zach Brown: Signs on with Philadelphia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Signed to a three-year, $21 million contract last offseason, Brown dropped off to 96 tackles (69 solo) and one sack in 2018, after averaging 138 and 3.25 over the previous two seasons. Health may have been part of the issue, with Brown revealing in late December that he played through a torn oblique for much of the year. The 29-year-old inside linebacker should be able to find another starting job, but there's no guarantee of a return to his elite IDP status from 2016-17.

Redskins' Zach Brown: Struggled through injury in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 at the moment. 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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