Malcom Brown, ***TEAM***, Agree to Contract
The New England Patriots drafted Malcom Brown with the 32nd pick in the 2015 NFL Draft out of Texas. In his rookie year, Brown played in all 16 games, starting 12. He recorded 48 tackles, six tackles for a loss, three sacks, and five quarterback hits.
The next season, he started 13 of the 16 games he appeared in. Brown recorded the same sack total with 50 tackles, four tackles for a loss, and five quarterback hits. As the Patriots achieved another playoff birth, Brown recorded his first postseason sack against the Houston Texans. The Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI that same season.
In 2017, Brown missed three games due to injury, but still started 12 of the 13 he appeared in. He recorded 2.5 sacks to go along with 49 tackles, four tackles for a loss, and five quarterback hits. Brown’s Patriots lost to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII that same year.
The following year, the New England Patriots declined his fifth-year option, making him a free agent in 2019. Brown started 14 of the 15 games he played in at defensive tackle. In 2018, he recorded no sacks for the first time in his career, while making 39 tackles and hitting the quarterback once. This was a result of Brown only playing 44 percent of the defensive snaps. In his last season with New England, Brown won his second Super Bowl ring.
In the 2019 offseason, the New Orleans Saints signed him to a three-year, $15 million contract. His New Orleans tenure started out on the right foot, as that year, he recorded 34 tackles, two sacks, six tackles for a loss, four pressures, and five quarterback hits. He started all 16 games for the first time in his career that season.
The next season, Brown started 13 games, missing three due to injury. He recorded 27 tackles, three tackles for a loss, one sack, three quarterback hits, and three pressures.
Malcom Brown has been to the playoffs all six years of his career thus far.
