Brown bounced around the league early in his career, playing for five teams in 2009 and 2010. He later latched on with the Giants and started a total of 10 games in three seasons.

Brown signed with the Texans in April, where he was competing for a backup spot behind Arian Foster. He did not play in Houston's first preseason game and was released a few days later
