Brown was having the Redskins players and alumni at the event sign his Redskins-themed prosthetic right leg, but that wasn’t what was confusing: what was confusing was that I was sure that I had seen him before, but that he had a DIFFERENT Redskins-themed prosthetic right leg.

Turns out I was correct; Brown was a visitor at training camp back in 2008, and I spoke to him very briefly then. (Dan Steinberg also blogged about him at the time.)

Turns out that Brown is on to his THIRD Redskins-themed prosthetic. “I had one last year that has the Super Bowl rings on it,” he said; that’s the one that was at training camp last year. “But unfortunately limbs, with heat and change and surgery and stuff… well, things change.
