A hard-hitting safety with a penchant for big plays, Brown played nine seasons with the Bears, making one Pro Bowl (2005) and one appearance as a first-team All-Pro (2001). He scored seven defensive touchdowns (four interceptions, three fumbles) in his career, including two pick-sixes during the Bears' 13-3 season in 2001. After missing just one game in his first four seasons, Brown missed 44 games because of injuries over his final five seasons in Chicago.
