Mountaineers in the Pros

WVU Offensive Lineman Mike Brown Signs as UDFA With New Orleans



West Virginia Mountaineers offensive lineman Michael Brown (57) blocks Kansas Jayhawks defensive lineman Malcolm Lee (99) Saturday, Oct. 16, 2020, in Morgantown.

Former West Virginia guard Mike Brown has signed with the New Orleans Saints as an undrafted free agent.

The Califonia native did not start playing football until he attended Eastern Arizona Community College two years after finishing high school. After two seasons at Eastern Arizona, Brown transferred to WVU in 2018 and redshirted. He became a starter at left guard part-way through the 2019 season and started all 10 games at right guard in 2020. He was named second-team All-Big 12 following the season.

Brown is the second Mountaineer to sign with a team as a UDFA, joining defensive tackle Darius Stills.
