The 32-year-old Brown spent the first eight years of his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers. In 2019, he signed with the Oakland Raiders, but he was released without ever playing for the team due to off-the-field behavior and a confrontation with GM Mike Maycock. The New England Patriots signed him, but he was cut after playing in one game due to the NFL's investigation into his sexual assault allegations.
