John Brown worked out with the Falcons on Tuesday

Per Tom Pelissero, the Atlanta Falcons brought in veteran WR John Brown for a workout on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

After requesting his immediate release from the Raiders before week 1, Brown got his first opportunity to work out for the Falcons on Tuesday.

John Brown granted his release by Raiders

The Raiders granted wide receiver John Brown his release on Tuesday afternoon.

Fantasy Impact

Brown had a limited role during the preseason in which he caught just one of three targets for two yards. He was projected for a depth role behind Henry Ruggs III, Bryan Edwards, and Hunter Renfroe in an offense that also features weapons such as Josh Jacobs, Kenyan Drake, and Darren Waller. Ultimately, Brown hits free agency and gets to pick his preferred destination with the NFL season just nine days away.

John Brown held to a single catch in preseason loss to 49ers

Raiders WR John Brown caught 1-of-2 targets for just two yards in Sunday's defeat to San Francisco.

Fantasy Impact

After inking a one-year contract in March, Brown was seemingly a veteran receiver who could contribute right away for the Raiders. Instead, he may be on the roster bubble after a highly underwhelming preseason, as he finished with merely one reception on three targets for two yards across two games.

John Brown and Raiders reach agreement on a one-year deal

WR John Brown and the Raiders have reached an agreement on a one-year, $3.75 million contract, with the potential to make up to $5.5 million.

Fantasy Impact

Brown was recently released by the Bills and ultimately ended up reaching agreement on a one-year deal with the Raiders. He’s expected to replace WR Nelson Agholor, who recently signed with the Patriots this offseason. The 30-year-old WR hauled in 105 receptions on 167 targets for 1,518 yards and nine touchdowns across 24 games for the Bills. Brown will most likely be the third option in the Raiders passing game behind Darren Waller and Henry Ruggs.

John Brown says on SiriusXM he’s interested in joining Colts or Steelers

Free agent and former Bills WR John Brown recently said during an interview on SiriusXM that he’d be interested in playing for the Colts or the Steelers in 2021.

Fantasy Impact

“I mean, you know, it depends who needs receivers. But I definitely, you know, the Pittsburgh Steelers. Big Ben (Roethlisberger) is definitely good with the deep ball, and the Indianapolis Colts, the way they use T.Y. Hilton. I feel like I would fit anywhere, but those are the main two off the top.” Brown is just two years removed from a 1,000 yard season with the Bills. Even at 30 years old, he could be a solid 3rd or 4th receiving option for a contending team.
