It was nice knowing you. It really was.
Today the Bears officially released Brown, you can read their official story on the matter here. Interestingly, he’s still listed on the website’s roster as of today.
Brown will be missed, by fans in the know anyway. In eight seasons with the Bears, he started 107 games, playing in 127 consecutively. He tallied 37.5 sacks, 50 tackles for loss, and 5 interceptions.
As others have said, in a go-for-broke year for Lovie Smith and Jerry Angelo, why not keep the solid Brown for one more season? Oh, wait, Mark Anderson is the answer, again.
We wish Brown luck.
