Preston Brown

Linebacker • Bengals

Bottom Line

Brown had 144 combined tackles last year, finishing in a three-way tie for the league lead along with Cleveland’s Joe Schobert and Green Bay’s Blake Martinez. Brown has averaged 128 tackles over his four NFL seasons, he hasn’t missed a game, and his tackle count has gone up every year. Brown left the Bills to sign a one-year deal with the Bengals, who’ll start him at middle linebacker. One concern is the affect that the presence of tackle-hog OLB Vontaze Burfict will have on Brown’s tackle total, once Burfict returns from a four-game suspension.
