NFL | G. Brown in car racing now

Thu, 20 Jul 2006 19:44:11 -0700

WBAY.com reports former NFL DT Gilbert Brown would give anything for one more season in the NFL, but at 35 and two years away from football, he's not holding his breath. An invitation to be the Grand Marshall at the Milwaukee Mile last summer opened a wonderful door for him. "I always loved racing, always loved cars. My dad was a drag racer, kind of a weekend warrior-type thing, and they gave me the opportunity to come down, check it out, and I looked at it and liked what I saw." Brown became part-owner of the Milwaukee Mile January 1 of this year. Brown spends his time between Milwaukee and his hometown of Detroit.

NFL | G. Brown has not ruled out a return to the NFL

Mon, 03 Apr 2006 10:53:21 -0700

Tamira Surprenant, of the Capital Times, reports former NFL DT Gilbert Brown has not completely ruled out a return to the NFL. Brown was on the mend following left knee surgery when he was released by the Green Bay Packers in March of 2004. Brown still has aspirations to renew his career and has been keeping the lines of communications open with the Packers. "I am talking to (Packers general manager) Ted Thompson, but I don't know what is going to come about," Brown said in a recent interview. "But a guy in my situation will probably have to wait until after the draft (April 29 and 30) before he starts getting calls. So I'm just in a holding pattern right now, just try to stay in shape and be ready when they do call me." Brown added this will be the last year for him to attempt a comeback.
