2019 Free Agent Profile: John Brown


Brown has 4.34 speed, with 40 career receptions of 20+ yards, 13 career receptions of 40+ yards, and a career yards per catch average of 15.0 yards.

In 2018 with the Ravens, Brown caught 42 passes for 715 yards (17.0 yards-per-catch) and 5 TDs. With the deep threat option lacking for the Redskins since the departure of DeSean Jackson, the Redskins could add Brown (28) to a wide receiver room that includes fellow speedster Paul Richardson Jr.

In the 9 games before Lamar Jackson was named the starter in Baltimore, Brown had 34 catches for 601 yards and 4 TDs.

As Brown would provide an option to stretch the defense, his mere presence could open up the intermediate areas of the field for Josh Doctson, Jordan Reed, Vernon Davis, and the run game featuring 2018 1,000-yard rusher Adrian Peterson, now healthy rookie Derrius Guice, and speedster Chris Thompson.
