Has Chad Brown been cut by the Steelers?
Seeing as Timmons is wearing his number ( 94 ) i guess so. Maybe i just missed the news about Chad.

i think he retired

He's not currently on the active roster. After he blew out his knee last year he basically called it quits at this point and as far as I know he retired as well, for good.

Yeah towards the end of last season he got hurt, and that was it. And no, I don't believe we should bring him back.

Glad he had a chance to go out a Steeler

Chad Brown is retired as a Steeler. He was a force to be reckon with when he entered the NFL and played for us in the first stunt.

PatriotsInsider.com has confirmed Brown agreed to terms with the Patriots and is planning on a second go around with the boys from New England. Brown was with the New England Patriots in 2005 as the team struggled with injuries. He started alongside fellow newcomer Monty Beisel (http://scout.scout.com/a.z?s=68&p=8&c=1&nid=3055672) on the inside. When Tedy Bruschi (http://scout.scout.com/a.z?s=68&p=8&c=1&nid=2986799) returned from injury, Brown was relegated to more of a backup role. When the seasons ended, Brown was still part of the Patriots roster, but eventually moved on after being released by New England prior to the start of the 2006 season. Brown played for the Steelers in 2006.

According to South Coast Today, the Patriots are expected to sign linebacker Chad Brown. In the report:

The Patriots and 15-year veteran linebacker Chad Brown, who spent the 2005 season in New England, have agreed to terms, according to a league source.

The signing comes in the wake of a report by the San Diego Tribune that the Pats have also come to terms with another vintage linebacker, Junior Seau.

After they were shredded by the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Championship Game, linebacker was considered a position of need for the Pats to address in the draft. But instead of getting younger, they have gotten older. They only used one of their picks, a sixth-rounder on Southern Methodist’s Justin Rogers, to fill the gaps at linebacker.

For Brown, who will turn 37 in July, 2007 will be his 16th NFL campaign. Tedy Bruschi, Mike Vrabel and Larry Izzo are also long in the tooth and Rosevelt Colvin will be 30 when the season starts.

Brown was signed by the Patriots in 2005 as a free agent and was credited with 54 tackles in 15 games (five starts). Brown was originally drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1993 and played there until 1996.

Although this report sounds promising, Chad Brown’s agent declined that Chad had signed with the Patriots for now at least. Brown was cut last year at the end of training camp, but should still make the roster this year. Brown, 37, is still versatlile, and still has enough left in the tank to provide depth off the bench.

I really hope this doesn't happen. Chad Brown is and always will be a Steeler. He got a chance to go out a Steeler last year, and that's the way it should stay. They don't even like him in New England.

Here is another update as of 5/24/07:

No New England deal with Chad Brown

Peter Schaeffer, who represents Chad Brown, continues to deny a report from last week stating the free agent linebacker had come to terms with the New England Patriots.

Brown played with the Patriots in 2005, making five starts and appearing in 15 games.
