Alabama football has another alum to make a 53-man roster for an NFL team.

Tony Brown, a former Crimson Tide cornerback, made the Indianapolis Colts roster.

The Colts are Brown’s fifth team since 2018 as he went undrafted. He started his professional career with the Los Angeles Chargers (2018) and has spent time with the Green Bay Packers (2018-19), Cincinnati Bengals (2020-21), and Las Vegas Raiders (2021). Brown, a native Texan, was on the practice squad for the Chargers (2018) and Raiders (2021). He’s totaled 58 tackles, six pass breakups, and two forced fumbles. Before turning pro, Brown was a defensive back for Alabama from 2014 to 2017.

He came as a five-star in the 2014 class.

Brown had issues buying into the program at first, but became a fan favorite. He helped the Tide to three Southeastern Conference Champions (2014-16) and two College Football Playoff National Championships in 2015 and 2017.
