The Buffalo Bills' leading tackler from a year ago is moving on.
Linebacker Zach Brown, who has lasted on the free-agent market for more than three weeks, finally found a new home Monday when he signed with the Washington Redskins.
Brown, 27, started all 16 games in 2016, his only season with the Bills. His 149 tackles ranked second in the NFL, and he added four sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception. During his prolonged time on the open market, Brown changed agents and made visits to the Raiders, Dolphins and Bills. His new representatives, brothers Michael and Jason Katz, announced Brown's signing on Twitter.

Brown was the Bills' fastest linebacker, and seemed to have been a possible fit in the team's 4-3 scheme on the weak side. Without him, the team has just four linebackers under contract for next season – Lorenzo Alexander, Preston Brown, Reggie Ragland, Ramon Humber.
