The Jacksonville Jaguars announced Wednesday that they have cut veteran defensive tackle Malcolm Brown.

Brown was the first-round draft choice of the New England Patriots back in 2015 and played for the team for four years before moving on to the New Orleans Saints and then the Jaguars.

It probably wasn’t a shock to many that Brown was cut. Injuries limited his playing time, especially during OTAs, which further hurt his chances of making the team.

Brown played in all 17 games for the Jaguars last season. He compiled 57 total tackles (30 solo), two sacks, and one pass defended.

Back in 2014, Brown was an All-American with the University of Texas and a first-team All-Big 12 selection. At the end of his junior year, he decided to go pro. Brown was a valuable member of the Patriots’ defense for years and made a huge impact while he was there. His biggest accomplishment was winning two Super Bowls with the Patriots during his time there.

Injuries may have slowed Brown while he was with the Jags, but more than likely, he won’t be out of a job for long. The former first-rounder is way too good to be passed up by any team in the league that especially needs help on defense.
