Raiders Officially Sign WR Vincent Brown, Release LB Bojay Filimoeatu



The Oakland Raiders officially announced the signing of WR Vincent Brown on Tuesday as well as the release of LB Bojay Filimoeatu.


Adam Caplan is now reporting that “at least” one NFL team has been informed that former Chargers WR Vincent Brown is signing with the Raiders.

  • Brown will receive a one-year contract from the Raiders, according to Caplan.
  • Caplan mentioned that the Jets and Chiefs were reportedly interested in working out Brown before he met with the Raiders on Monday.
  • Brown has reportedly canceled a workout with another team.
  • Jerry McDonald adds that Brown already has a locker and a uniform number (19).

Head coach Dennis Allen declined to comment on whether or not Brown worked out for them on Monday.

We’ll have more as the news is available.


Free agent WR Vincent Brown‘s workout for the Raiders reportedly “went well” and there is a chance Oakland could offer him a contract, according to ESPN’s Adam Caplan.


Bill Williamson of ESPN reports that former Chargers WR Vincent Brown is working out for the Oakland Raiders on Monday.

  • ESPN’s Adam Caplan previously reported that Brown had scheduled his first visit for next Monday with an unnamed AFC team, which is apparently the Raiders.
  • Caplan added that Brown also has visits scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday.

Brown reportedly has interest from as many as eight NFL teams following his release from San Diego.

There is no question that the Raiders could use some more offensive weapons, but we’ll have to see if anything comes of this visit or if he’s able to meet with more teams in the next few days.

The Chargers waived Brown a few weeks ago as they worked to trim their roster down to 53 players. After he cleared waivers, the Chargers placed him on injured reserve and later waived him with an injury settlement.

Brown, 25, is a former third-round pick and is entering the final season of his rookie contract. Last year, Brown appeared in all 16 games for the Chargers and caught 41 passes for 472 yards receiving and one touchdown.
