Brown is scheduled to work out for the Rams this week, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports. Brown, a third round-pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, has just 72 catches in 37 career games. Even on a team without much talent at his position, he'd likely just be fourth or fifth on the depth chart.
The Colts certainly can't be viewed as short-handed at wide receiver. No team lining up T.Y. Hilton and Andre Johnson can be thought of negatively in that department. But the team could struggle with depth at wideout if one or two others don't step up, per ESPN. Plenty of candidates pepper the roster, including Donte Moncrief, Phillip Dorsett, Duron Carter and Vincent Brown. The most accomplished is Moncrief, who racked up 444 yards as a rookie a year ago. But Dorsett has an advantage as a 2015 first-rounder. Carter has two years of experience in the Canadian Football League while Brown has 72 receptions for 919 yards during his NFL career. It remains to be seen how it all shakes out, but the presence of premier quarterback Andrew Luck could prove to make one and all better.
The Colts have signed wide receiver Vincent Brown, the team announced Tuesday. Brown appeared in seven games with the Raiders last season, catching 12 passes for 118 yards. His best season came in 2013, when he made 12 starts and played all 16 games with the Chargers and racked up 472 yards and one touchdown on 41 receptions.
The Raiders have listed WR Denarius Moore, WR Vincent Brown, CB Chimdi Chekwa, CB T.J. Carrie, G Tony Bergstrom, T Menelik Watson and DT Stacy McGee as inactive Week 17 against the Broncos. Brown, Chekwa and Moore had all been ruled out prior to Sunday. Both Carrie and Watson entered the contest listed as questionable. Carrie is dealing with an ankle injury. Watson has foot and ankle issues. Bergstrom and McGee are healthy scratches.
The Raiders listed seven players on its final injury report for Week 17 against Denver. Wide receiver Vincent Brown (groin), cornerback Chimdi Chekwa (hamstring), and wide receiver Denarius Moore (knee, ankle) were ruled out for for Sunday. Cornerback T.J. Carrie (ankle), linebacker Khalil Mack (hamstring) and tackle Menelik Watson (foot, ankle) were labeled questionable. Meanwhile, defensive back Ras-I Dowling (hamstring) got the green light after being a limited participant all week. He was deemed probable for the final game of the season.
