Early years

Brown was born in Waxahachie, Texas.[1] He attended MacArthur High School in Lawton, Oklahoma and was a letterman in football in the defensive lineman position. As a senior, he won all-state honors as a defensive lineman. He graduated from MacArthur High School in 2000.

College career

Brown attended the University of Oklahoma, where he played for coach Bob Stoops's Oklahoma Sooners football team from 2000 to 2004. He had been recruited as a defensive tackle, but was switched to offensive tackle in his sophomore year, and quickly blossomed, and secured a starting spot on the Sooners' offensive line. As a senior in 2004, he won the Outland Trophy as the nation's most outstanding lineman. He was the anchor of an offensive line that paved the way for Adrian Peterson to set the record for most rushing yardage by a freshman in 2004. His contributions were key to the Sooners winning the 2004 Big 12 Championship. He was a first-team All-Big 12 selection in 2003 and 2004, he was an All-American in 2003 and a unanimous first-team All-American in 2004.[2]

Brown was regarded as one of the best offensive tackles available in the 2005 NFL Draft,[3] and drew comparisons to Jordan Gross.[4] He was selected by the New Orleans Saints with the 13th overall pick. Brown was the first Sooner offensive lineman taken in the draft since Stockar McDougle went to the Detroit Lions as the 20th overall pick in the 2000 NFL Draft. Remarkably, Brown was the highest selection among OU offensive lineman since Stan West was the No. 8 pick by the Los Angeles Rams in 1950.[5]

New Orleans Saints (2005–2009)

He was selected to attend the 2006 Pro Bowl alongside the player he protects, quarterback Drew Brees, after anchoring the line that got the Saints to the NFC Championship Game. Brown's prototypical size at left tackle makes him good at both run and pass blocking. He led the league in rushing average behind left tackle while only allowing 3 sacks. He was again selected with Brees to participate in the 2008 Pro Bowl.

A torn ACL kept Brown out of action in 2009. The emergence of Jermon Bushrod in his absence resulted in him losing his starting job and an eventual trade to the Washington Redskins.

Washington Redskins (2010–2012)

Brown was traded to the Washington Redskins on June 19, 2010 for a third or a fourth round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, depending on which pick is sent to the Eagles as a part of the trade for quarterback, Donovan McNabb.[6] The pick was used to select Martez Wilson. Brown was made the starting right tackle of the offensive line. At the end of 2010 season, he played in 15 games and started 14 of them.

On July 31, 2011, the Redskins re-signed Brown to a five-year, $20.25 million contract.[7] As with the 2010 season, he was hampered by the hip surgery he received in 2009.[8] In Week 15 of the 2011 season against the New England Patriots, he suffered a groin injury during pre-game warmups and was replaced by Tyler Polumbus.[9] At the end of the 2011 season, Brown played and started a total of 12 games.

At the start of 2012 training camp, Brown was placed on the physically unable to perform list due to hip soreness on July 26, 2012.[10] Despite initial reports saying he would not need to undergo surgery,[11] Brown had hip surgery on August 27 and expected to miss four to six weeks while recovering.[12] By the start of the 2012 season, he was kept on the PUP list meaning he would not be allowed to play in the first six games of the season. On November 28, the Redskins decided to leave him on the season-ending PUP list.[13] Due to how Brown's contract was restructured last season, the last three years on his contract became void on February 8, 2013, which set him up to become an unrestricted free agent for 2013 season.[14][15]

2004 Oklahoma Sooners football team

The 2004 Oklahoma Sooners football team represented the University of Oklahoma during the 2004 NCAA Division I-A football season, the 110th season of Sooner football. The team was led by two-time Walter Camp Coach of the Year Award winner, Bob Stoops, in his sixth season as head coach. They played their home games at Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman, Oklahoma. They were a charter member of the Big 12 conference.

Conference play began with a win over the Texas Tech Red Raiders in Norman on October 2, and ended with a win over the Colorado Buffaloes in the Big 12 Championship Game on December 4. The Sooners finished the regular season 12–0 (9–0 in Big 12) while winning their third Big 12 title and their 39th conference title overall. They were invited to the 2005 Orange Bowl, which served as the BCS National Championship Game that year, where they lost to the USC Trojans, 19–55. USC was later forced to vacate this win because of the ineligibility of Reggie Bush, but Oklahoma still counts it as a loss.

Following the season, Jammal Brown was selected 13th overall and Mark Clayton 22nd in the 2005 NFL Draft, along with Brodney Pool, Mark Bradley and Dan Cody in the 2nd round, Brandon Jones in the 3rd, Antonio Perkins in the 4th, Donte Nicholson, Mike Hawkins and Lance Mitchell in the 5th, and Wes Sims in the 6th. This total number of 11 stands as the most Sooners taken in the NFL Draft in the 16 years of the Stoops era.

2005 New Orleans Saints season

The 2005 New Orleans Saints season was the franchise's 39th season in the National Football League.

The season began with the team trying to improve from their 8–8 record from 2004. The Saints played two preseason games in the Louisiana Superdome before being forced to evacuate New Orleans due to Hurricane Katrina.

They were forced to play the rest of the season on the road, splitting their games between their temporary headquarters at San Antonio’s Alamodome, and LSU’s Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, and even playing their first home game at Giants Stadium.

The season ended with a 3–13 record, their equal-worst record alongside 1996 and 1999 since their 1–15 1980 season, and the firing of Jim Haslett. He was replaced by current head coach Sean Payton the following 2006 season.

2006 All-Pro Team

In 2006, the PFWA and the publication Pro Football Weekly combined their All-Pro teams.

2006 New Orleans Saints season

The 2006 New Orleans Saints season was the franchise's 40th season in the National Football League.

All of the team's 2006 regular season home games were played in the Louisiana Superdome, which had been unplayable for the entire 2005 season after being damaged during Hurricane Katrina. Led by a new coach, Sean Payton, and a new quarterback, Drew Brees, the Saints enjoyed their most successful season up to that time, reaching the NFC Championship Game for the first time in franchise history.

Believed by many as the greatest Saint of all time, this was Drew Brees' first season with the Saints, after spending his first 5 seasons with the San Diego Chargers and the Saints signed him after the Miami Dolphins famously passed on Brees and signed Daunte Culpepper instead.
