Brown suffered a setback with his back injury Wednesday, an issue that placed him on IR in 2015 as a member of the Ravens. His 2016 season is in jeopardy at this point, while he was a bit of a longshot to make the Broncos' roster given his nagging back injury.
Brown has dealt with a nagging back issue since the end of 2015. The injury landed him on IR last season with the Ravens, and was also the reason for his release from Baltimore in May. An MRI is likely in store for Brown in the near future, the result of which may ultimately decide his immediate future in Denver.
Brown was likely brought in to provide a bit of competition for the last spot allotted to the wide receiver position. In three seasons with the Ravens, he hauled in 87 passes for 891 yards and seven touchdowns, yet none of those end-zone visits have occurred since his rookie campaign in 2013.
Brown re-signed with the Ravens back in March, but his release Friday comes with a failed physical designation. The towering wideout landed on injured reserve last season due to a back injury, so that ailment is presumably still an issue. Although Brown impressed with 49 catches, 524 receiving yards and seven scores as a rookie, he's been a marginalized member of an underwhelming Ravens receiving corp since, so it'll be interesting to track his free-agent options ahead of training camp.
Marlon Brown re-signed with the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday.
Brown posted a 49-524-7 receiving line as a rookie back in 2013, but he didn't earn much playing time the past two seasons, even when the Ravens' receiving corps was decimated by injuries. He'll merely be competing for one of the final roster spots.
