WR - LV
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.
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.
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.
“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.
The Bills released WR John Brown on Wednesday.
Brown recorded his best season of his career with Buffalo in 2019, but was limited to nine games in 2020 due to a sprained ankle. 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. He will look to latch onto another team during the offseason. Buffalo will turn to Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis as it’s top wideouts for 2021.
Joe Buscaglia from the The Athletic expects the Bills to release veteran wide receiver John Brown who is due to make $9.53 million next season. Doing so would save Buffalo $7.93 million.
John Brown, who will be 31 when the season begins, spent most of the 2020 campaign battling calf and ankle injuries which caused him to miss seven regular season games. He had the best season of his career in 2019 when he caught 72 passes for 1,060 yards and finished as the WR19. A potential departure by Brown could open up more possible growth for Gabriel Davis who flashed in his rookie season.
Bills WR John Brown had two receptions for 24 yards in Sunday's Championship round loss to the Chiefs.
Brown had a tough end to his 2020 season. He missed significant time with an ankle injury and never seemed to get all the way back from it. If healthy, Brown should be a WR3/WR4 heading into the 2021 season.
