Redskins sign linebacker Brown, place Orakpo on IR
Brown was in training camp with the Redskins this year but was cut at the end of the preseason.
Three-time Pro Bowl player Orakpo tore his right pectoral muscle in Sunday's win over Tennessee.
The Redskins made the moves Tuesday after announcing Monday that Orakpo was out for the season.
