FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — The Atlanta Falcons have released guard Jamon Brown, who started nine games in 2019.

The Falcons signed Brown and another veteran guard, James Carpenter, to free-agent deals before the 2019 season. The team hoped the veterans would provide stability to a problem area, but instead there was more turnover through the season.

Brown was facing an uphill fight for a starting job in training camp.

Rookie Matt Hennessey could start at left guard while 2019 first-round pick Chris Lindstrom is expected to start at right guard.

Brown was entering the second year of a three-year deal worth $18.75 million before Monday’s release. He appeared in 10 games in 2019.

Brown, who started eight games for the New York Giants in 2018, was a third-round pick by the Rams in the 2015 draft.
