He played for the Lions over 11 seasons, earning six Pro Bowl selections (seven total in his career), and was chosen as first-team All-Pro in 1995.
Lomas subsequently played for the Arizona Cardinals (1996–1998), the Cleveland Browns (1999), the New York Giants (2000–2001), and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2002), with whom he won Super Bowl XXXVII before retiring.Today, Brown serves as the color commentator for Detroit Lions radio broadcasts, a role he has held since 2018.
