Plaxico Burress, Ryan Grant among best remaining free agents - NFL.com
Can someone explain to me why we haven't contacted this guy yet? Jason Brown is definitely better than what we have right now and we could sign him to a one-year deal. Our OL is still our biggest issue, don't forget that.OL Jason Brown among best remaining free agents
OL Jason Brown: It wasn't that long ago that the Rams were making Brown the highest-paid center in league history, as he left Baltimore for greener pastures. Brown didn't play up to that contract, though I would also point out that those Rams teams were pretty bad. And at least when Steven Jackson was healthy, Brown helped contribute to the running game. The financial risk with him would be much less now; one year in the range of $2 million would get it done. Brown can play center or guard and was a very solid starter in Baltimore for much of his career. He's still young enough, having just turned 29, and Baltimore had made a contract offer to him a few weeks back, but the drafting of Gino Gradkowski alleviated that need behind Matt Birk.
He may not be the perfect size fit in every scheme, but his versatility and athleticism make him plenty attractive to a team with a need on the offensive line. He's started nearly 90 games in the league, never missed a college game at North Carolina and is a bright player who can quickly grasp an offense.
Go get him!
