That doesn't mean he's about to boycott the team's mandatory post-draft camp at the NovaCare Complex that opens Friday.
"Yeah, I'll be there," Brown said before boarding a plane in South Carolina this afternoon.
The Eagles' veteran cornerback said he has no intention of being a disruptive force in the locker room.
"I didn't become a villain all of a sudden," he said. "I'm a professional. I've been in contact with Troy (Vincent)."
At the end of Vincent's eight-year run as a starting cornerback with the Eagles, he was unhappy about his contract situation, but he never protested by missing practice time during the offseason or training camp. Some players in the past -- Duce Staley, Bobby Taylor and Lito Sheppard -- have attended the team's mandatory post-draft camp, then skipped voluntary workouts later in the spring.
After this weekend's mandatory camp, the voluntary full-squad workouts are scheduled from June 2-5 and 8-11.
Brown was asked about a comment he made last week on 610 WIP radio in which he said, "They don't want me in that locker room."
"You can take that in another light," he said. "I'm the leader on the football team and it's bad for players to see me in a situation where I'm not happy. But I'm not going to blow up the NovaCare Complex. I'm not going to be one of the guys who puts on show week in and week out when the media comes to my locker."
Brown said he's also not worried about having to compete for a starting job with Ellis Hobbs, who the Eagles acquired for two fifth-round draft picks yesterday.
"I've always competed for my job," he said. "That doesn't matter to me. I have respect for Ellis. He's a guy who has played through injuries like me. He tore up his groin and didn't miss any time. He's a hard worker and he's trying to establish himself."
Eagles coach Andy Reid said Sunday he didn't feel the need to explain the acquisition of Hobbs to Brown.
"Well I am not going to go through and call every player here," Reid said. "I can't do that. He knows he is on the team, so I don't feel it's necessary to do that."
Brown, who has four years left on a six-year contract extension he signed in 2004, said he didn't need a call from Reid.
"Coach knows me," he said. "That doesn't need to be done. You don't have to do that kind of stuff."
