According to NFL Insider Adam Caplan the Cincinnati Bengals hosted safety Stevie Brown late week. Brown, a former seventh-round selection during the 2010 NFL draft out of Michigan, has 23 career games played with one start. He was a practice squad player with the Raiders during his rookie season until he signed onto the Raiders 53-man roster in mid-September. Oakland released him during final cuts on September 3, 2011. He signed with the Carolina Panthers for three days before being released, eventually finding a home during the 2011 season with the Indianapolis Colts as a special teams player.
During his limited career, Brown has posted 29 tackles and two passes defensed.
Brown played a special teams role with the Colts in 2011, but took part in 160 defensive snaps with the Raiders in 2010. During that time only five passes were attempted to receivers he covered, with one 18-yard completion.
