According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the cap-starved Saints have had defensive tackle Malcom Brown in trade conversations recently.
Though he initially signed with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2017, he didn’t take over the full-time role until 2018. Over the last three years, he’s averaged 47.0 yards per punt. That figure was at 46.7 yards per punt in 2020.
“They’re getting a tough individual,” Brockers said. “He played in a game in Seattle with nine fingers. I’ve seen this man get hit plenty of times and stand back up and go at it. You’re getting a mentally tough player that doesn’t let a lot get to him. And he has a lot of experience. You can’t take that away from him. The man has made it to the big game and played in big games. So he knows how to get it done when the time is needed. So the Lions should be very happy with what they have. They got a guy with a lot of experience and knows how to get to the big game.”
