According to Gehlken, Brown is still dealing with a calf injury, but is expected to end up on another team’s roster. He was considered to be a promising young receiver just a few years ago, so this is a somewhat surprising move.
Brown, 25, is a former third-round pick and is entering the final season of his rookie contract. He is set to make $645,000 for the upcoming season.
Last year, Brown appeared in all 16 games for the Chargers and caught 41 passes for 472 yards receiving and one touchdown.
