The Detroit Lions have signed running back Malcolm Brown. The Los Angeles Rams signed Brown as an undrafted free agent in 2015. Los Angles will have till Monday to match the offer. Brown is only 25 years old and would be a solid addition to Detroit’s backfield. He would more than likely be the second back behind Kerryon Johnson. But with Theo Riddick and Zach Zenner on the roster, another move could be coming.
Last season with Los Angeles, Brown averaged 4.9 yards per carry and finished with 212 yards in 12 games.
