The New England Patriots reportedly lost a pretty important piece of their front seven Thursday, as Malcom Brown reportedly has agreed to a deal with the New Orleans Saints.

Brown landed a solid, three-year, $15 million deal in the Big Easy.

The Patriots elected not to pick up Brown's fifth-year option, which set him up for free agency this offseason.

The 6-foot-2, 320-pound Brown could be a replacement for nose tackle Tyeler Davison.

News FIA F1 Race Director Charlie Whiting passes away
Members of the FIA were also seen wearing black armbands in the paddock to commemorate the passing of Whiting on Thursday. He began his sojourn with F1 back in 1977 with the Hesketh team before shifting to Brabham for 1978.

Selected in the first round of the 2015 draft, Brown has missed just four games in his career.

Brown does have some pass-rushing ability for a big guy, with 8.5 sacks over his four seasons in the National Football League, and may get better production in a different scheme.

Brown, who turned 25 in February, often was asked to play a two-gap style for the Patriots in which the primary goal was to hold up blockers to allow those behind him to make plays. He made 186 tackles and 8.5 sacks, peaking at 50 tackles in 2016 and three sacks in 2015 and 2016.
