WHO?!? I don’t blame you! Garrett Brown.

Brown was signed onto the roster in 2010 as an undrafted free agent out of Minnesota. He was competing for a job on the defensive line and likely was not going to make the cut.

When you take performance enhancing drugs and still do not stand out, then you know you must be doing something wrong. He could be a candidate for a practice squad spot, but this doesn’t help him there. He still can be used in preseason games.

Melky Cabrera anyone?
