Brown signed a contract with the Bears on Thursday, Patrick Finley of The Chicago Sun Times reports. Brown didn't play in 2017 after being waived by Denver before the start of the regular season. He last saw regular season action while with the Ravens in 2015, recording 112 yards on 14 catches in 10 games. He'll be looking to get a spot near the bottom of the Bears' receiver depth chart in 2018.
Brown was waived by the Broncos on Saturday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. Brown wasn't able to separate himself from a crowded Broncos receiving corps. He'll re-enter free agency in hopes of landing with a team in need of size at receiver.
Brown (undisclosed) returned to action in the Broncos' preseason opening win over the Bears, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports. Brown recorded one catch for 15 yards in his return. It was his first action since being placed on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury in December. While the practice squad figures to be his likely destination, he will look to impress as the preseason progresses.
The Broncos placed Brown (undisclosed) on injured reserve Saturday. The details surrounding Brown's injury haven't been disclosed. The towering wideout previously spent training camp with the Broncos, and while he impressed in his limited time, was ultimately waived due to a back injury prior to the season opener. He then resurfaced in Denver weeks ago, but never made any sort of on-field contribution. His release allowed the team to add more depth at linebacker with Brandon Marshall (hamstring) on the shelf.
Brown re-signed with the Broncos on a two-year contract Monday, The Denver Post report. Brown was with the Broncos ahead of training camp, but was waived due to a back injury. Now, he'll once again reunite with coach Gary Kubiak, who was Brown's offensive coordinator in 2014 when both belonged to the Ravens. In 38 career games, the Georgia product recorded 87 receptions for 891 yards and seven scores.
