With Julius Peppers in for the Bears, Alex Brown could be out.
According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, the team is shopping Brown, a nine-year veteran who ended the 2009 season as a captain. Per Biggs, if they can’t find a partner, Brown could be cut.
Earlier this week, coach Lovie Smith said that Israel Idonije would move from defensive tackle to end, which indicates that Idonije would replace Brown in the rotation.
Under contract for two more years, Brown is due to receive base salaries of $5 million in 2010 and $5 million in 2011.
