He added first-round OT Isaiah Wilson has been placed on the COVID-19 reserve list, per Terry McCormick.

Wilson is one of a handful of first-round picks who have yet to sign their rookie deal. 

The COVID-19 list was created this summer for a player who either tests positive for or who has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons.

Players will remain on the list until they are medically cleared to return.

Brown, 25, was drafted by the Titans in the fifth round in 2017 out of UCLA. He’s entering the final year of his four-year, $2.67 million rookie contract and will make a base salary of $735,000 in 2020. 

In 2019, Brown appeared in 14 games for the Titans and recorded 105 tackles, one sack, one interception, one fumble recovery returned for a touchdown and eight pass defenses. Pro Football Focus rated Brown as the No. 20 linebacker out of 89 qualifying players. 

Wilson, 21, was a two-year starter at Georgia and was named a freshman All-American in 2018 before being drafted with the No. 29 overall pick in the draft.

Wilson is projected to sign a four-year, $11,568,389 rookie contract that includes a $5,973,374 signing bonus. The contract includes a fifth-year for the Titans to pick up for the 2024 season.

During his three-year career at Georgia, Wilson appeared in 25 games, starting 24 of them at the right tackle position.
