Eagles release LB Zach Brown
Zach Brown would probably like to take back the words he said about Kirk Cousins. Following the Philadelphia Eagles’ loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Philadelphia is releasing Brown per Adam Schefter.

During the week leading up to the game in Week 6, the veteran linebacker called the Vikings quarterback ‘the weakest part of their offense’. Right on cue, Cousins proceeded to complete 22 of his 29 passes for 333 yards, four touchdowns, and an interception against the Eagles defense.
Following the game, the media questioned Brown on his statement but he dodged answering the questions that he was asked. The least he could’ve done was taken responsibility for what he had said about Cousins. Now, Brown will have to own up to what he said and how he has performed as he searches for a new home for the rest of the season.
This season, the 29-year-old linebacker has accumulated 29 tackles, two tackles for loss, and two pass deflections for the Eagles. Prior to arriving in Philadelphia, Brown had spent time with the Tennessee Titans, Buffalo Bills, and Washington Redskins.
As a matter of fact, Brown actually played with Cousins when both of them were in the nation’s capital in 2017; which makes this situation even more interesting. Nonetheless, there are undoubtedly going to be teams in the NFL who will express interest in bringing him in.
With the Bills and Redskins, Brown had two seasons where he had 125+ tackles and two or more sacks. Regardless of who he plays for next, there’s no doubt that he has been humbled in this situation.
