Just two weeks ago, New Orleans Saints’ free agent offensive line headed to the Meadowlands to visit with the New York Giants.
According to Pro Football Talk, the two sides officially came to an agreement and Brown signed with the Giants on Tuesday.
The team announced Tuesday that they have signed tackle Charles Brown. Brown visited with the Giants earlier in free agency and joins an offensive line that has also added Geoff Schwartz, John Jerry and J.D. Walton to the mix since the start of free agency.
Brown spent most of last season as the Saints’ starting left tackle, but wound up getting benched in favor of rookie Terron Armstead after a rough outing against Rams defensive end Robert Quinn. He’s played right tackle as well during his career and gives the Giants an experienced option as a swing tackle behind Will Beatty and Justin Pugh.
Brown was originally drafted with the 64th overall pick in the second round of the 2010 Draft by the Saints. The former Southern Cal Trojan didn’t see a lot of time as a rookie, but began to carve out a roll over the next few years. He played in all 16 games for the Saints last season.
