Alex Brown signs with the Saints
Former Chicago Bear defensive end Alex Brown signed a 2 year contract with the Saints today. He is expected to start at the left end the spot opened up when the Saints released Charles Grant. Brown has been a very productive, consistent player for all of his 8 years in the league. In Chicago, he played in 127 games, including 107 starts, totaling 483 tackles, 43 1/2 sacks, five interceptions, 16 forced fumbled and 11 fumble recoveries. He also blocked three kicks.
Last season Brown had 39 tackles, six sacks, two pass breakups, one fumble recovery and five tackles for losses. He started every game. Brown has only missed one game in his career. His signing will allow a lot more flexibility come draft time in my opinion.
