Tony Brown Signs with Indianapolis Colts
After spending 2021 on the Raiders and Bengals' practice squads, former Crimson Tide cornerback Tony Brown signed with the Indianapolis Colts, the team announced on Tuesday.
Brown, after a memorable career at Alabama, entered the 2018 NFL Draft, but went undrafted, instead signing as a free agent with the Chargers. After being cut ahead of roster finalizations, the Green Bay Packers picked Brown up where he would go on to appear in nine games, starting three of them.
After a season in Green Bay, Brown was waived and then claimed by the Bengals. In thirteen appearances for Cincinnati, Brown made just one start, finishing the game with nine tackles and a pass deflection.
The Bengals signed Brown to a one-year deal, but eventually waived the former five-star before picking him back up for their practice squad. Brown spent just another month in Cincinnati before moving on to Las Vegas where he would also remain on the practice squad.

Brown is likely best remembered by Alabama fans for his post-game rant following the Crimson Tide's victory over Clemson in the 2018 Sugar Bowl. Brown took to the microphone to inform the viewers at home exactly what motivated Alabama heading into the game, and created a moment that fans will never forget.
Whether or not Brown makes it to the active roster for week one is yet to be seen, but with now four years of experience in the NFL, he could provide solid depth at the position.
