Report: DE Brown settles on Saints
April, 7, 2010 Apr 74:52PM ETEmail Print Share By Pat YasinskasAdam Schefter just reported over on our news side that defensive end Alex Brown has agreed to a two-year contract with the New Orleans Saints.

Who would have thought that Alex Brown would have been the prize of free agency in the NFC South? Yes, Atlanta fans, I know Dunta Robinson really is the crown jewel this year, but that seems so long ago and the rest of the NFC South has been so quiet. Turns out Brown was lured by two, maybe three NFC South teams.

At very least, his decision came down to a choice between New Orleans and Tampa Bay, the two teams we know for sure he spoke to. There are indications Carolina also was at least somewhat interested, but we donít know if the Panthers made an offer.

Anyway, I donít see any real big downside to Brown joining the Saints. Donít expect him to come in and pile up 15 sacks. He is what he is Ė a guy who, pretty consistently, gave the Bears six or seven sacks a year and played the run well. Is he an upgrade over Charles Grant, who was released by the Saints? Probably. Grant could give you a big year once in awhile, but he also disappeared at times and was getting older. Brown gives a championship defense a consistent player in an area of need.

This doesnít mean the Saints wonít take a defensive end early in the draft. But it does mean they donít have to take a defensive end early in the draft.

One other item of note here is that signing Brown doesn't apply to the final-eight plan that's restricting the Saints in free agency. That only applies to true unrestricted free agents, who played out their previous contract. Brown had his terminated when the Bears cut him.

I believe a Weatherspoon, Hughes, or Odrick pick are almost a lock now.
