Bengals cut LB Brown after $16.5M deal in March
Brown had started in eight of the team’s nine games this season, making 54 tackles with one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.
The Bengals had re-signed Brown to a three-year, $16.5 million contract in March that included $4.8 million guaranteed.
Brown’s first season with the Bengals in 2018 was derailed early due to ankle and knee injuries. He had signed a one-year deal worth $5 million to return to his hometown after spending the first four seasons of his career with the Buffalo Bills.
