St. Louis RamsEdit

On May 5, 2012, He was signed by the Rams as an undrafted free agent.[1] At the conclusion of 2012 training camp, Brown was released with the intention of him clearing waivers and being re-signed to the practice squad. However, he was picked up by the Miami Dolphins on waivers.

Miami DolphinsEdit

Brown was claimed on waivers by the Dolphins on September 1, 2012. He was a healthy inactive in the team's season opener versus the Houston Texans. After 10 days with the team, Brown was released on September 11, 2012.

Second stint with RamsEdit

On September 14, the Rams brought Brown back, signing him to their practice squad. Brown became notable during the team's week 7 preparation, when Rams coach Jeff Fisher had Brown practice while wearing a long blond wig to emulate Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews.[2] Brown was elevated to the active roster on November 30, 2012, to give the team a full group of linebackers in the absence of the injured Mario Haggan.
