Former Buffalo Bills linebacker Zach Brown continues his search for a new home as he’ll reportedly meet with Washington on Monday. Jamal Womble, who apparently is a friend of Brown’s, was first to report the news on Twitter.
Washington would become the fourth team that Brown - who notably changed representation earlier this offseason - has visited with since NFL free agency began on March 9. The 27-year-old has also met with the Oakland Raiders, Miami Dolphins, and Buffalo.
Despite a stellar season a year ago, which culminated in Brown earning his first-ever Pro Bowl nod, the veteran of five seasons has not commanded much attention at all on the free-agent market. Brown posted 149 combined tackles along with four sacks in 2016.
According to Womble, all three teams that Brown has previously met with have offered the linebacker similar contracts financially. Womble suggests that Brown is prioritizing his fit on each team’s respective defense. (He did note a couple weeks ago that it seemed like the Bills were out.)
Drafted in the second round of the 2012 draft (52nd overall), Brown had been a solid contributor first with the Tennessee Titans, and then last season with Buffalo. No matter where he ends up, Brown projects to be a starter.
