He was drafted by the Los Angeles Rams, but immediately traded for Ollie Matson of the Chicago Cardinals. This trade was significant, as he was one of nine players traded for Matson. After the Cardinals, he had a brief stint with the Green Bay Packers under head coach Vince Lombardi before returning home in 1960 to try out for the newly formed Houston Oilers, where he ended his professional career in 1961. After his retirement from football, he returned to Dayton, bought some land and took up farming with his four brothers. Brown passed away on June 23, 2013 and buried in Dayton's Magnolia Park Cemetery.
