Vincent Brown was released by the San Diego Chargers on Tuesday.
Originally selected by the Chargers in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft, Brown owns a 73-941-3 receiving line (on 133 targets) over the course of five NFL seasons. He shouldn't have any trouble finding a team that will let him compete for a roster spot next year, but he's unlikely to have a significant impact regardless of where he lands.
Vincent Brown is inactive Sunday against the Dolphins.
With Dontrelle Inman back in action this week, Brown is the odd man out in the San Diego Chargers ' Week 15 wideout corps.
Vincent Brown caught one pass on two targets for 22 yards in Sunday's loss at Kansas City.
Brown was signed earlier in the week to help out a San Diego Chargers receiving corps that has been decimated by injuries, but he was only able to make one grab. Still, his one catch was actually a pretty big one as it represented a key fourth down conversion as the Chargers tried to come back on their last possession of the game. With another week of practice under his belt, perhaps Brown will be able to contribute more next week against the Dolphins.
San Diego's third-round selection in the 2011 NFL Draft, Brown never panned out as expected and has since bounced around the league. He has just 72 catches in 37 career games, and even with the Chargers decimated by injuries, Brown will likely just serve as the fourth of fifth wide receiver. He could, however, have a role in the Week 14 game plan, especially if both Stevie Johnson (groin) and Dontrelle Inman (neck) are unable to play.
Vincent 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.
