Saints sign Malcom Brown to 3-year, $15M contract

Brown, 6-2, 320, comes to New Orleans after spending his first four National Football League seasons (2015-18) with the New England Patriots. Brown was still a big piece of the defensive line, playing 44 percent of the defensive snaps, mostly as a space eater on first and second downs.

The New Orleans Saints addressed one of their needs in free agency on Thursday as they agreed to a deal with a defensive tackle.

Infantino also provided an update on organization of the upcoming Women's World Cup , saying that the preparations were going well.

Brown landed a solid, three-year, $15 million deal in the Big Easy. Originally selected by the Patriots in the first round (32nd overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft out of Texas, Brown has posted 186 tackles (103 solo), 8.5 sacks, a forced fumble and three fumble recoveries in 60 regular season games played with 51 starts.

While the Saints are surely thrilled to be adding more starting-caliber quality and depth at a position of weakness on their roster, the Patriots probably aren't exactly lamenting Brown's departure. He is known as more of a run stuffer, but some believe he could be more productive in the pass rush in another system. Brown is a 25-year-old nose tackle specialist, tipping the scales at 6 feet 2, 320 pounds. Any player would have struggled to replace a star like Wilfork, but like it or not, the bar was set high, and Brown never quite achieved it as a Patriot.
