Per Friday’s news release, Brown was the NFL’s leader in tackles in 2017 with 127 before missing the final three games of the regular season with an injury.

Over the last two years in the nation’s capital, Brown started 25 games for the Redskins, recording 223 out of 631 career tackles. Washington released Brown last month in a move that saved the franchise $3.88 million.
