Eagles To Sign G Jamon Brown Off Bears’ Practice Squad

Jamon Brown‘s Chicago stay did not last long. The Eagles are signing the veteran guard off the Bears’ practice squad, the team announced Tuesday.

The Bears added Brown to their P-squad last week but opted to let him join the Eagles’ active roster rather than promote him to their own.

The Eagles have run into extensive trouble up front. They lost Pro Bowl guard Brandon Brooks to another Achilles tear, lost Andre Dillard for the season and had Pro Bowl right tackle Lane Johnson on the Week 1 inactive list due to injury. This played a key role in Washington sacking Carson Wentz eight times.

Brown was a full-time Rams starter in 2017, when the team snapped a lengthy playoff drought, but a suspension halted his run with Los Angeles’ first unit. The Rams waived Brown midway through the 2018 season, but he became a Giants starter soon after. The Falcons signed Brown in 2019 and used him as a starter in nine games. But Atlanta cut the veteran blocker this offseason.

    This is a pretty logical move to be. I like Driscoll and believe he could develop into a solid starter in this league. However, he looked overmatched in the opener and clearly needs some time to adjust to the professional level. Brown is nothing special, but he can hold the fort as a veteran with experience and won’t completely embarrass himself (presumably)

      To be fair, future HOF Jason Peters looked overmatched against Washington too, not just Driscoll. Whatever stops Aaron Donald and crew from burying Carson on Sunday.
