Former Raiders safety Stevie Brown is using Twitter to announce that he has signed with the Colts. No word yet as to whether or not the signing is to the active roster or the practice squad. We also don't know who the Colts cut to make room for him.
Brown was drafted in the seventh round of the 2010 NFL Draft by Oakland. He dressed in fifteen games last year, and started in one, earning 25 total tackles and two passes defended at the safety position. Brown is a graduate of East High School in Columbus, IN.
At 5'11, 215 pounds, he could play both safety spots. The only good video I could find of Brown is this one where he beats the crap out of 49ers punter Andy Lee:
In other news, former-Vikings defensive tackle Pat Williams has apparently served his two-game Starcaps suspension despite not being signed to an NFL team. PFT spoke with NFL spokesman Greg Aiello, and, according to Aiello, Williams can now sign with any team.
Last night on his weekly radio show, Colts vice chairman Bill Polian stated that one of the reasons the Colts don't have a good defense is because they don't have 350 pound defensive tackles.
Well, Williams is 317, and unlike the Colts current crop of DTs, Williams is actually good.
But, with no Peyton Manning on this incredibly flawed and over-rated roster, it makes no sense for Pat Williams to sign with Indy. He's 38, and likely wants to sign with a contender. The 2011 Colts aren't contenders.
