Zach Brown is unemployed no longer. The former Philadelphia Eagles linebacker has signed with the Arizona Cardinals, according to an official announcement.

The Eagles cut Brown — who had been starting for them — one day following the team’s 38 to 20 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. As you’ll recall, Brown made some ill-advised comments prior to that game about how Kirk Cousins was “the weakest part of their offense.” Cousins proceeded to shred the Eagles’ defense by completing 75.9% of his attempts for 333 yards (11.5 average), four touchdowns, zero interceptions, and a 138.4 passer rating.

Brown’s comment’s weren’t the only reason the Eagles released him. Derrick Gunn offered more insight on the motivation:

Brown had previously worn out his welcome in other stops around the NFL so this sentiment isn’t exactly surprising.

Given that it took a few weeks for a team to sign him, Brown clearly wasn’t a hot commodity as a free agent. But now he’ll play for the Cardinals, who have a 3-5-1 record this season. Brown joins Jordan Hicks and Joe Walker as former Eagles in Arizona’s linebacker corps.

The Eagles don’t play the Cardinals this season, if you were wondering.
