Brown signed a reserve/future contract with the Colts.

Analysis: Brown finished the 2018 season on the Colts' practice squad after spending time with Philadelphia earlier in the season.

Billy Brown: Lands with Colts' practice squad

Brown signed to the Colts' practice squad Thursday.

Analysis: Brown previously spent time with Philadelphia's practice squad this season. With Jack Doyle (torso) on injured reserve, and Eric Ebron (illness), Erik Swoope (knee), and Mo Alie-Cox (calf) all nursing injuries, Brown could conceivably earn a depth role on the 53-man roster.

Billy Brown: Let go from practice squad

The Eagles released Brown for their practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: Brown signed with Philadelphia's practice squad in September, but with tight end's Zach Ertz and rookie Dallas Goedert firmly entrenched in the position, Brown's shot of making the active roster was minuscule.

Billy Brown: Returns to Philly's practice squad

Brown signed to the Eagles practice squad Thursday, Graham Foley of the Eagles' official site reports.

Analysis: Brown spent the 2017 season on the Eagles practice squad and signed a reserve/future contract with the team in February, but was unable to earn a spot on the 53-man roster. The 26-year-old has no clear path to Philadelphia's roster with the team's tight end group of Zach Ertz, Dallas Goedert and Joshua Perkins all currently healthy.
