We are currently in process of doing brief reviews of all of the free agents on the Cleveland Browns. Today, we take a look at another linebacker who has really only had a chance to make an impression special teams.
LB Titus Brown
How and When He Joined the Browns first announced their practice squad in 2008, Brown was one of the people who made it. He spent camp with the Miami Dolphins that year as an undrafted free agent, and after he was waived, the Browns signed him. Is it difficult to believe that Brown has already been on the team for three years?: When the
Productivity Level Last Season: I'm not sure if Brown ever had any snaps on defense. He played in 13 games and was a good, hard-hitting special teams player. Late in the season, he was involved in a brutal special teams tackle on a kickoff that took him out for a couple of games. He did return before the end of the season though, and had similar production to Jason Trusnik on special teams.
Why Keeping Him Could Make Sense: Special teams. Is that really all he has to offer? It's hard to say. I seem to recall him being a standout in the past preseasons on defense, but he was never involved in the regular season rotation. I had him pegged as an outside linebacker in the past.
What the Browns Should Do: Considering the Browns will need to assemble a lot of players for camp quickly and his salary should be near the minimum, why not give Brown another look to see if he is an option now that guys like Eric Barton and David Bowens have been cast aside?
