Jon Brown: Waived by Jacksonville

Brown was waived by the Jaguars on Monday, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Analysis: The 27-year-old signed a reserve/future contract after the end of the regular season, but he was never likely to supplant Josh Lambo in Jacksonville. Brown will now hope to receive another opportunity elsewhere.

Jon Brown: Waived by 49ers

Brown was waived by the 49ers on Friday.

Analysis: It is unclear why the 49ers waited this long to waive Brown, as his exit was a given once the team and kicker Robbie Gould ended their contract standoff on July 15th. Nonetheless, the 26-year-old Louisville product will now set his sights in search of a new opportunity.

Jon Brown: Secures two-year pact

Brown signed a two-year contract with the 49ers on Friday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Brown has lost the kicker battle in Cincinnati three years in a row, so he'll look to challenge Robbie Gould in San Francisco. Brown looks to be insurance in case Gould, 36, gets injured. It's Gould's job to lose, as he has converted 82 of his last 85 field-goal attempts (96 percent), and the 49ers put the franchise tag on him in February.
