Brown was a seventh-round pick of the Oakland Raiders in the 2010 NFL Draft. Brown played 15 games (one start) for the Raiders during the 2010 season. He made 30 tackles (25 solo) and defended two passes. The Raiders released Brown before the 2011 season and he was picked up by the Carolina Panthers and then the Indianapolis Colts. Brown only played for the Colts last season in eight games as a special teams player. He made five tackles. Brown is likely going to be in competition for a special teams spot on the Giants.
Brown (5-foot-11, 215 pounds) ended last season on IR after a quadriceps injury. He also had drawn interest from the Cincinnati Bengals before signing with New York.
