Brown was released by the 49ers on Wednesday, only one week after signing with the team on August 20th. He was released after San Francisco signed former first round pick Kevin White.
Entering his eight season in league Brown will hope to catch on with a team this fall, but he may be running low on options.
The 49ers signed free agent WR Jaron Brown on Wednesday.
Brown joins the 49ers after spending five seasons with the Cardinals and two with the Seahawks. He joins JJ Nelson and Tavon Austin as the third wide receiver to join San Francisco. Brown will join a banged up wide receiver corps, with Deebo Samuel (foot), Jalen Hurd (ACL) and Richie James (wrist) all sidelined. The 30-year-old hauled in 16 receptions for 220 yards and two touchdowns across 14 games for the Seahawks in 2019. Brown could carve out a role as the 49ers' WR3, but is a dart throw in deep-league formats only.
The 49ers are bringing in veteran receiver Jaron Brown for a workout on Monday.
With Deebo Samuel likely to miss the start of the season with a broken foot, the 49ers are looking to add some fire power to their receiving core. After adding Tavon Austin last week, Brown would likely serve as a depth piece if he were to stick with the 49ers. The seven-year vet appeared in 14 games for the Seahawks in 2019, hauling in 16 passes for 220 yards and two touchdowns.
Jaron Brown (knee sprain) has been ruled out for Sunday's Wild Card game against the Eagles.
There is little fantasy impact to Brown's absence. Expect Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf to dominate targets in an advantageous matchup this afternoon.
Seattle Seahawks receiver Jaron Brown drew zero targets during Week 9's shootout against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The fact that Brown saw zero targets in such a high scoring affair tells us all we need to know about his fantasy prospects once Josh Gordon is active on game day. Brown saw just 23 percent of the snaps in Week 9, well behind David Moore's 55 percent. Brown may see only a handful of snaps per game once Gordon is up to speed with the offense.
