I had him as a key component towards victory last week and he did not disappoint-
Playing at right tackle for the injured Zach Strief, Charles Brown (+2.3) was the Saints’ highest graded lineman and surrendered just one pressure in pass protection. LINK
“Charles is a high-round draft pick for us. Charles has played a lot of football. Charles is extremely athletic and he has strong hands. He’s played a lot of football for us. He had to step in yesterday and play for a player, Zach Strief, who has played very well for us. I’ve said this (before about next man) up, we have a next-man-up theory. When it’s your turn, it’s your turn to go play. Charles did a good job yesterday. He did a good job.” Vitt on Monday
His continued development could be a huge boon to the team and cap management. He's at a $825K cap hit next year. If not him, then Bushrod will have to be extended at a higher rate ($10mil for 2yrs), or sign a spendy UFA (Branden Albert, Ryan Clady, Jake Long, etc), or invest the 1st Rd pick there (Joeckel, Lewan, etc).
He lines up against 3rd yr Lamarr Houston this week. Image: http://www4.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/Charles+Brown+New+Orleans+Saints+v+New+England+lhXFH1htOgSl.jpg
