Raiders Sign Rookie Safety Stevie Brown

July 25, 2010

The Raiders have signed 7th round pick Stevie Brown to a 4 year deal worth 1.82 million, according to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post.

Brown's deal consists of the standard base salaries of $320,000, $405,000, $490,000 and $575,000, plus a signing bonus of nearly $38,000 and a fourth-year escalator clause that can boost the maximum value of the deal to $2.56 million.

Brown registered 215 career tackles, four interceptions and two sacks at the University of Michigan.

Brown played outside linebacker in college, but is now moving to the safety position for the start of his NFL career.

The 5-foot-11, 212-pounder has good strength and speed, posting a 4.5 in the 40-yard dash, along with a 34 1/2 inch vertical leap.

It's widely believed that Stevie Brown was a little undervalued in this year's draft and may emerge as one of the top steals for the Raiders in 2010.
