The St. Louis Rams may not have reached a deal with the New England Patriots for a backup running back, but the Patriots swap of Laurence Maroney to Denver has shaken lose another option. The Broncos released RB Andre Brown to make room for their latest addition. Brown is a name that could generate some interest from teams needing a change of pace guy in their backfield, teams like the Rams.
Drafted in the fourth round by the New York Giants in 2009, Brown spent his rookie year on IR...familiarity with the injured reserve system, always a good qualification for a potential Rams player. Anyway, he had a pretty good showing in the preseason this year as both a rusher and a kickoff return man.
I like the idea of a change of pace back. Could Brown be that guy?
