Former North Melbourne full-forward who requested a trade to Melbourne at the end of the 2020 season. He had a delayed start to the season after a knee injury, which had also troubled him in his last year with the Roos, flared up after an intra-club match. He didn't debut for Melbourne until Round 7, and only played three games before being dropped. He returned in Round 17, holding his spot through the rest of the season and kicking three goals in Melbourne's Grand Final victory.

Started 2022 strongly with five goals in the first two weeks of the season, before a COVID-19 related absence and a striking suspension in a VFL game kept him out of the side for three weeks. Brown kept up his goalkicking form on return before hitting a flat patch in the middle of the year where he went goalless for three weeks. He remained at the head of Melbourne's attack throughout the season and kicked goals most weeks but was far from dominant, culminating in a goalless night as the Demons were knocked out of the finals.

Served as a specialist and ruck coach with Melbourne's AFLW team in 2022.

His uncle is former Collingwood player James Manson.
