Tony Brown remains in the AFC, but he’s found a new NFL team.

He spent time with the Cincinnati Bengals (2020-21) and Las Vegas Raiders (2021), but the Indianapolis Colts have signed the former Alabama defensive back as a free agent. Brown went undrafted in 2018 after being on three Southeastern Conference Championship teams (2014-16) and two national championship teams (2015, 2017) with the Crimson Tide.

He started his pro career with the Chargers (2018) and went to the Green Bay Packers (2018-19), Bengals, and Raiders.

The 6-foot, 199-pounder totaled 50 tackles (39 solo stops), three tackles for loss, six passes defended, two forced fumble, and eight special teams tackles. Brown came to Alabama as a five-star from Texas in its 2014 recruiting class.
