He was an emotional leader for Alabama football, but it looks like he’s finally found an NFL home.

Tony Brown, a native Texan, returns to the Indianapolis Colts on a one-year deal worth $1.2 million — per ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

Brown has $500,000 of his contract fully guaranteed. He’s become a great special teams player for the Colts as he joined the team in 2022 after getting bounced from the Las Vegas Raiders. Brown went undrafted in 2018, spending time with the Los Angeles Chargers (2018), Green Bay Packers (2018-19), and Cincinnati Bengals (2020-21) before going to the Raiders late in 2021.

He served as a defensive back and special teams player for Alabama from 2014 to 2017.

Brown came to the Crimson Tide as a five-star prospect in 2014. He played on three Southeastern Conference Championship teams (2014-16) and two College Football Playoff National Championship teams (2015, 2017).
