Brown started nine games last season but the Falcons released him from his three-year, $18.75MM deal earlier this week. Finances may have been a factor, but the Falcons also seem to be high on third-round pick Matt Hennessy, who may wind up as the team’s starting left guard. Brown, meanwhile, is still owed $4.75MM in guaranteed base salary from Atlanta.
Brown has bounced around a bit since 2018, when a suspension cost him his starting gig with the Rams. The Giants picked him up off of waivers that year, prior to his free agent deal with the Falcons. All in all, Brown has 60 career games to his credit, including 47 starts.
