DT - JAC
Former New Orleans Saints DT Malcolm Brown has reportedly been traded to the Jacksonville Jaguars, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Brown is the latest acquisition made by new Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer, adding depth to their defensive line in 2021. Brown recorded 27 tackles and a sack in the 2020 regular season across 12 games for the Saints, including three tackles against the Bears in the postseason. The sixth-year defensive tackle will look to make an immediate impact for his new team in Jacksonville.
Per Josina Anderson the New Orleans Saints intend to release DT Malcom Brown.
Brown is the latest name in a long list of defensive cap casualties for the Saints as they try to get under the 2021 salary cap. After failing to find a trade partner for the 27-year old Brown the Saints decided to cut him freeing up close to $5M in cap space. Brown had signed a three-year, $15M contract back in 2019 with the Saints and played in 32 total games.
Ian Rapaport of NFL Network is reporting that the New Orleans Saints are shopping defensive lineman Malcolm Brown. If the Saints are unable to find a trading partner, the veteran lineman will likely be released.
The Saints are rumored to have had multiple teams interested in the veteran defensive lineman. If they are unable to find a trading partner it is rumored that Brown will be released. Brown is currently in the final year of his three-year, $15 million dollar contract. If the Saints release the defensive lineman it will save them $5 million dollars against the cap in 2021.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Saints and DL Malcom Brown have agreed to a three-year, $15 million contract.
The former first-round pick by New England had a disappointing contract season with the Pats. Having just turned 25, Brown is certainly young enough to get back on track in New Orleans next year. He should slide in as the team's starting nose tackle.
Texas Tech's Jakeem Grant joins Rutgersâ€™ Leonte Carroo as the second receiver drafted by the Dolphins. The team obtained the sixth-rounder (No. 186) after trading sixth and seventh round picks with the Minnesota Vikings.
The Dolphins may look to see if Jakeem Grant can handle return duties. Third-round pick Kenyan Drake also has the potential to return kicks. Jarvis Landry was the main returner for the Dolphins last year, and provided a bonus in leagues where players were rewarded for return yards. Owners planning to draft him with that in mind, may want to temper those expectations going into camp and see what happens with the Grant and Drake picks.
