The deal includes $12.75 million guaranteed for the former Giant, who was never likely to be re-signed by New York after the organization recently traded for another offensive guard Kevin Zeitler. Brown should immediately step in as a starter for Atlanta.
Brown is expected to sign a three-year contract with the Falcons, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Brown played six games for the Rams last season before being waived by the team in late October, then landed with the Giants and played eight games. He'll now bolster the Falcons' offensive line on a three-year deal.
Brown was waived by the Rams on Tuesday.
To make room for newly acquired Dante Fowler, the Rams decided to part ways with Brown. Brown appeared in five games for Los Angeles this season. It's unclear whether the Rams would be interested in signing him to the practice squad if he clears waivers.
Brown's two-game suspension for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse has run its course, and the 2015 third-rounder has officially rejoined the team. Austin Blythe has impressed through the first two games of the season, so Brown may have to compete for his former starting role.
