The New England Patriots signed veteran free agent linebacker Chad Brown on Thursday and released cornerback Antwain Spann, wide receiver Jonathan Smith and tight end Jake Nordin.

Brown, 36, a veteran of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Seattle Seahawks, also played for the Patriots in 2005. He has 79 career sacks in 14 NFL (http://www.gatorsports.com/section/wiki&template=wiki&text=National_Football_League) seasons, ranking second among active NFL (http://www.gatorsports.com/section/wiki&template=wiki&text=National_Football_League) linebackers. In his previous season with the Patriots, Brown had 54 defensive tackles and three on special teams in 15 games.

He had seven tackles, including a sack, in eight games last season for the Steelers, the team that drafted him out of Colorado in 1993. The three-time Pro Bowl pick was a four-year starter for Pittsburgh, before spending eight seasons with Seattle. this guy's not finish yet:scratch:

I'd be surprised if Chad makes the Pats final roster.
