Falcons To Sign G Jamon Brown

The Falcons added another piece to their offensive line this afternoon, coming to terms with Jamon Brown, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com tweets.

Brown joins James Carpenter in being a Georgia-bound guard. A Rams starter, Brown saw a suspension derail his run with the team. He landed soon as a Giants starter, however, and will make a run to crack the Falcons’ starting lineup or be a top swing man.

Atlanta still has Brandon Fusco under contract, so the plan may be to play Carpenter opposite the incumbent veteran and have Brown work as a swing backup. Brown, though, has started 38 games in his career.

The former third-round pick’s path back to a Giants starter spot became blocked when New York traded for Kevin Zeitler. Brown rated as Pro Football Focus’ No. 62 guard last season.

    Like these signings, not big time splashes like a Kevin Zeitler trade would’ve been….but hey we’ll take it. Guess this means they’re not drafting o-line with a high pick which still could bite them tho

    Yeah, but with Schraeder or Sambrailo at RT, Fusco and Carpenter at G’s, and Mack at C there could at least be some depth now. We can draft defense, best available, or trade down. These signings put us in a good spot.

      yeah but our depth are all rotational guys, we some need legit starters. Need to actually find some starters in the draft we can control for several years on rookie deals. Besides Jake Matthew’s they’ve completely whiffed on the very few o-line men the did draft
