In 2019, Malcom Brown has been part of two organizations led by the two longest-tenured head coaches in the league, quarterbacked by the two oldest field generals in the NFL and who tied for the league lead in wins over the past two seasons.

Another similarity? The Patriots and Saints are both eager to make room for NFL players who donít quite fit a mold (see: Taysom Hill and Danny Etling).

But Brown, a soft-spoken, important defensive tackle signing in this offseason, isnít here to help the ďThe Saints are so similar to the Patriots, theyíre bound to win the Super Bowl soonĒ trope, because thatís just not how he sees the game.



In fact, Brown doesnít see much at all that doesnít fit within his tunnel vision. And even then, the Texas alumnus and two-time Super Bowl champ doesnít even see objects in front of him the same way you and I might.

When asked about facing much-talked-about rookie center Erik McCoy on Sunday in the teamís first practice with pads, Brown knew nothing more than there was a rather large black jersey in his way.

ďI donít look at numbers,Ē said Brown when asked about Ďfacing No. 78í. ďIím worried about what Iím supposed to do on defense. Whatever they do on offense, Iíve got to react to it, but I donít worry about much beyond my defensive plays and what I have to do our there and our whole defense as a team.Ē

And how about that historically successful quarterback-head coach relationship he spent four years with in Foxborough, Massachusetts, and how it compares to the one that resides in New Orleans? Brown simply sees the red jersey heís been groomed not to tackle in practice.

Malcolm Brown "fits" that elite role as a space-eater who will shine in our 4-3 defense versus the 3-4 where he faced double teams on nearly every play and was still effective in New England.

Big upgrade over T Davison.

Soft ball questions. How about how he likes his bacon, favorite wing place in NO, cajun dishes.
