Eagles Releasing Veteran LB Zach Brown

Adam Schefter reports that the Eagles are releasing veteran LB Zach Brown on Monday. According to Schefter, multiple teams are expected to be interested in Brown. 

The Eagles have already confirmed the move:

This is a somewhat surprising move from Philadelphia, given that they are dealing with some injuries at linebacker. Brown will be one of the best available free agents. 

Brown, 29, is a former second-round pick of the Titans back in 2012. He finished his four-year rookie contract with Tennessee before signing a one-year, $1,250,000 contract with the Bills as an unrestricted free agent in 2016.

After finding less interest than anticipated, Brown agreed to a one-year, $2.3 million contract with the Redskins in 2017 and returned to Washington this last year on a three-year contract worth up to $24 million.

Washington released Brown back in March and he later signed a one-year, $3 million deal with the Eagles. 

In 2019, Brown has appeared in six games for the Eagles and recorded 30 tackles, no sacks or interceptions and two pass defenses.
