Brown, 28, came over to the Redskins this past season after earning a Pro Bowl nod with the Buffalo Bills back in 2016. He would go on to record 127 tackles, two passes defended and 2.5 sacks in 13 games (all starts).
A former second-round pick of the Titans back in 2012, Brown has remained one of the most underrated linebackers in the game. He’ll now continue what has been an impressive career into a second season with the Redskins.
