According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, free agent LB Zach Brown is believed to be between the Raiders and Dolphins. However, Salguero adds that neither team has shown a willingness to offer him the $6 million per year he’s believed to be seeking as part of a new contract.
Brown recently visited with the Bills and had been linked to the Colts before they signed a linebacker last week.
The inside linebacker market hasn’t been very good this year, which is why Brown is currently still available. The expectation is that Brown will make a decision once he’s completed all of his visits.
Brown recently changed representation and is now with CSE Talent.
Brown, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Titans back in 2012. He finished his four-year rookie contract with Tennessee before signing on with the Bills as an unrestricted free agent last year.
He finished a one-year, $1,250,000 with the Bills and is once again testing the open market.
In 2016, Brown appeared in all 16 games for the Bills and recorded 143 total tackles, four sacks, one interception, two forced fumbles, and four pass defenses. Pro Football Focus rated him as the No. 17 overall linebackers out of 87 qualifying players.
