Chargers add Everette Brown

Peyton Hillis, Everette Brown AP

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.

    i wonder if he plays better now, this is a better defense for his size.

    Met the guy in Hawaii, was out for the pro bowl. Good guy, you would think hes a hug since he from FSU but he doesn’t even drink.

    Anywho … the Chargers need a competent snap retriever for kneel downs and centering game winning field goals in the final minutes of games.

    Being about 6′ works better in a 3-4 than a 4-3 but it’ll still be difficult for Brown to get adjusted midway through the season.

    Hopefully it works out.

    Poor Ogemdi Nwagbuo, Phillip drops a snap and they think linebacker is the problem…

    Big Panther and Seminole fan, damn shame he didn’t pan out for US. Hope he can turn it around in San Diego.

    The only way that helps is if Everette knows how to handle the refs balls better than the opposition. Clearly the Jets and Chiefs have some skills.

    it won’t matter , we still suck

  8. jpmelon says: Nov 1, 2011 9:24 PM

    Can someone spell Ogemdi Nwagbuo phoenetically?

  9. clevername1 says: Nov 1, 2011 9:26 PM

    808, snap retriever, very good. BTW all you Pats haters who say the game was over before HAIR punched it through the end zone….just quote Yogi all together.

    Just what the chargers need to get worse. Don’t see where hell contribute i hope they don’t start him he’s going to give up big plays in both pasaing and running game. Never heard of him and his name sucks.

    poor OG , waived twice, that sucks

  12. jcdavey2011 says: Nov 1, 2011 9:43 PM

    and it doesn’t have anything to do with PR

    looks like shaun phillips might be worse than just one game hmmm

    met him at the pro bowl? are you it wasn’t the meineke car care bowl?

    i wish him luck, but he’ll disappear faster than d.b. cooper’s grandson at the neverland ranch.

    It is a problem when your best “playmaker” in Shaun Phillips is out, Laboy cant get any pressure on the QB, and the bust English goes to IR.

    What, someone didn’t like my Back to the Future thing? Come on, it’s Dr. Everette Brown with his flux capacitor! Opps, maybe it was Dr. Emmit Brown, either way fluc capacitors are awesome!

    Great… Now the Packers will only score 80…..

  17. bnwillard says: Nov 1, 2011 10:13 PM

    Carolina gave up a ton, just for the opportunity to draft this kid. He’s a true bust. I’m predicting a short stay in San Diego.

    The Chargers need a boost. Hope Brown can give them that. AFC west will be competative through the end so every bit of help is crucial. Should be a good race. Not my team’s division but you gotta love these divisions with 3 team races… God I love football. What would we do without it?!!!

    dumbolt sad, but you’re right. They do need someone who can push the pile and get a rush but it goes deeper than that. How about a QB who won’t throw more than two picks and/or fumbles a game? Or how about having a clue what the snap count is on silent snaps? Or how about holding on to the ball in the Red Zone? Or how about just plain focusing for more than one half of a game? Soft team, soft coach, that’s the rep and it’s well deserved. Last year special teams were the worst in NFL history yet they would not can the coach so don’t expect any changes during the season. AJ Smith won’t swallow his pride and hire a coach who holds players accountable and with discipline, he gets what he gets, a soft, underachieving team that will never live up to its potential.

    Uhhhhhhhhhh, that’s it. Book your tickets for the Big Game. Did anyone see they are officially number one the power rankings after this move?

    clevername1: phonetically, it’s pronounced “John”

  22. mrgroovesd says: Nov 1, 2011 10:45 PM

    I hope he takes over for Laboy because I swear he only got on the roster because of Manusky. I’m getting tired of Manusky also with his promise of pressure defense…haven’t seen it yet.

    Welcome to a loser Brown. At least the chicks are hot down here. Could be worse, Jokeland could have grabbed you…

  24. gerard33 says: Nov 2, 2011 12:39 AM

    kind of reminds me of hali…. wouldn’t be suprised at all if he became 10 sack guy

  25. bigcarguy1 says: Nov 2, 2011 9:38 AM

    Wish him the best–think he has too much pressure in Carolina–they were looking for the next Julius Peppers

  26. pilot2011 says: Nov 2, 2011 10:57 AM

    Go spin move!

  27. raiderapologist says: Nov 2, 2011 8:28 PM

    I wonder if humb0lt believes in Everette like he does in Philip.
