Brown, who is 25, played in 12 games for the Rams in 2018 rushed for 212 yards.
From Pro Football Talk:
“Brown entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie and the Rams tendered him only at the original-round level, so the Lions would not have to give any compensation to the Rams if the Rams don’t match the Lions’ offer.”
