The Panthers cut defensive end Everette Brown earlier this year, two seasons after giving up a first-round pick in 2010 for the ability to acquire him in round two of the 2009 draft. Brown has since had several workouts, but he hasn’t been able to find a home.
He’s found one now.
The Chargers have announced that Brown has been signed to the team. To create a roster spot, the Chargers waived defensive end Ogemdi Nwagbuo.
The announcement characterizes Brown as a linebacker, which makes sense given that the Chargers play a 3-4 defense. In Carolina, the Panthers have used a 4-3.
