Everette Brown is a 3-4 rush linebacker, trust me on this one. He only weighs 252lbs. and unless he plans on gaining at least another 30lbs. and still play at the level he plays right now, he simply will not be good for the 4-3 defense that the Texans run. Although I think Brown is a better athlete than Michael Johnson, Johnson fits more the prototypical 4-3 defensive end mold.
