Brown’s name has come up in internal discussions in personnel meetings for several teams. Per La Canfora, it would not be a surprise if Brown signed with a new team after the trade deadline on Tuesday, Oct 29.
La Canfora says several teams like the Colts, Packers, 49ers, Saints and Ravens could benefit from upgrading their receiving corps.
Since being released from the Patriots and filing grievances against both Oakland and New England seeking to recoup $40 million in salary, Brown has kept a lower profile. He’s also currently under investigation by the NFL for allegations of rape and sexual harassment.
Brown, 31, is a former sixth-round pick of the Steelers back in 2010. He was in the third year of his five-year, $72.71 million contract when the Steelers traded him to the Raiders back in March.
The Raiders later signed Brown to a new contract worth $50.125 million and includes $30.125 million guaranteed. However, Oakland made the decision to release Brown a few weeks ago and he later signed a one-year deal worth up to $15 million with the Patriots.
Brown lasted just 11 days in New England.
In 2019, Brown appeared in one game for the Patriots and caught four passes for 56 yards receiving and one touchdown.
