As the Kansas City Chiefs prepare to face former Missouri star Danario Alexander this weekend, one of his teammates is joining Todd Haley’s former offensive coordinator in Buffalo. Confused yet? According to Adam Caplan, Colin Brown will sign the Buffalo Bills off of the Baltimore Ravens practice squad.
By rule, Brown must spend at least three weeks of Buffalo’s 53-man roster. He’s expected to sign with Buffalo sometime on Tuesday.
Brown, who was selected in the fifth round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs, spent his entire rookie season on injured reserve with a calf injury.
He spent training camp and the preseason with the Chiefs, but was waived by the team on Sept. 4. He signed with Baltimore’s practice squad on Nov. 23.
We’ll be talking about Alexander this week, but it’s good to see Brown get the call up to an active roster. After investing a draft pick then over a year of time I was surprised that the Chiefs decided to part ways with Brown at the end of the preseason. He has some raw tools that Buffalo head coach Chan Gailey got to see up close and personal during his time in Kansas City.
Not only will he stick due to NFL rules, don’t be surprised if he gets a little run on Sundays. The Bills are looking for as many good, young players as possible and can see what Brown has to offer as they get ready for 2011.
