Jaron Brown: Released from practice squad
The Cardinals cut Brown from the practice squad Tuesday.
Brown has been unable to secure a role to start the season after spending the last two years in Seattle and compiling 30 receptions for 386 yards and seven touchdowns over 30 games. The 30-year-old receiver likely will look for another practice squad role.... See More ... See Less
Jaron Brown: Inks practice-squad deal with Cards
The Cardinals signed Brown to the practice squad Wednesday.
After tours of duty with two NFC West teams to start his career -- the Cardinals, then Seahawks -- Brown spent some time with the 49ers in training camp but ultimately was released in late August. Less than a month later, he found employment with the Cardinals yet again, only this time he'll have to work his way up to the active roster. And at the moment, just one of the six wide receivers on the 53-man -- Christian Kirk, groin -- is tending to an injury.... See More ... See Less
Jaron Brown: Cut by 49ers
The 49ers released Brown on Thursday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
After getting a week to prove his worth with the 49ers, Brown has been jettisoned in favor of a new pair of receivers (Kevin White and River Cracraft). Brown has been used regularly but in a limited role during seven pro seasons, so he's likely only a phone call away from another chance elsewhere in the league... See More ... See Less
49ers' Jaron Brown: Finds home in Bay Area
Brown agreed to a contract with the 49ers on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Brown's tour of the NFC West continues. After spending the first five years of his career with the Cardinals, he was a depth wideout in Seattle the past two seasons. He now joins a banged-up San Francisco receiving corps, with Deebo Samuel (foot) and Richie James (wrist) on the reserve/non-football injury list and Jalen Hurd (knee) awaiting word on whether he tore his ACL. For his career, Brown has averaged more than two targets per game in just two seasons.... See More ... See Less
Jaron Brown: Tries out with Texans
Brown had a tryout with the Texans on Sunday, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com reports.
Brown played a limited role in Seattle over the last two years, posting 30 receptions for 220 yards and two touchdowns through 30 games. He wasn't dependable with seven catchless games in 2019, but he could add solid depth elsewhere. He could even do so in Houston, but he likely would be on the roster bubble -- despite DeAndre Hopkins' departure -- after the team added Brandin Cooks and Randall Cobb this offseason....

Seahawks' Jaron Brown: Likely leaving Seattle
Brown isn't likely to re-sign with Seattle, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Brown signed a two-year, $5.5 million contract during the 2018 offseason and made it through both years of his deal. He started six of his 30 regular-season games and averaged just 24.2 offensive snaps per contest, catching 30 of 47 targets for 386 yards and seven touchdowns. Brown isn't likely to find a top-three WR role as a 30-year-old free agent, but his ability to contribute on special teams and in the red zone could lead to some interest for a depth job. Meanwhile, the Seahawks don't have a clear No. 3 behind Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, with options from the current roster including David Moore, Malik Turner, John Ursua and perhaps eventually Josh Gordon (suspension)....

Seahawks' Jaron Brown: Limited usage all year
Brown, who wasn't targeted in the Sunday's 28-23 playoff loss to the Packers, finished with 16 catches for 220 yards and two touchdowns over 14 regular-season games.
Brown started the season as a starter but slowly saw his usage disintegrate as David Moore got healthy and Malik Turner took on additional duties. The 30-year-old Brown didn't play more than 11 offensive snaps in any of the last five regular-season contests, and he logged just nine in the only playoff game in which he played. He'll be an unrestricted free agent in March, and even if the team re-signs him, Brown won't be on fantasy radars in 2020.... See More ... See Less
Seahawks' Jaron Brown: Ready for divisional round
Brown (knee) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's divisional-round game in Green Bay, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
The same can be said for fellow wideout Malik Turner, who passed all the phases of the concussion protocol. Brown thus should be active this weekend, but his opportunities could be few and far between due to the receiving corps getting back to full capacity.... See More ... See Less
Seahawks' Jaron Brown: Full participant Thursday
Brown (knee) was a full participant on Thursday's injury report, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Brown sprained his knee during the Seahawks' regular-season finale, and while he was downgraded to out in advance of the team's wild-card win at Philadelphia, his absence eventually was chalked up to a personal matter. With a full practice under his belt this week, he's poised to work as a periphery option in Seattle's passing attack Sunday in Green Bay but could see a few more snaps if Malik Turner doesn't get through the concussion protocol....

Seahawks' Jaron Brown: Limited participant Wednesday
Brown (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Brown missed the wild-card win over the Eagles, but Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reported Monday that Brown sat that game out due to a personal matter rather than because of his knee injury. Even so, Brown's limitations Wednesday suggest he's not quite yet back to full speed, so he'll likely need to put in an uncapped practice Thursday or Friday to guarantee his availability for Sunday's divisional-round game versus the Packers....

Seahawks' Jaron Brown: Missing playoff clash
Brown (knee) was downgraded to out for Sunday's wild-card game against the Eagles.
Brown originally was slated to miss a few weeks with the knee sprain but surprisingly was listed as questionable for the game Friday. Brown's absence paves the way for David Moore and John Ursua to see a slight uptick in depth receiver reps behind usual starters Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf.... See More ... See Less
Seahawks' Jaron Brown: Should return for divisional round
Brown (knee/personal) is expected to play in Sunday's divisional-round game versus the Packers, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.
According to Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle, Brown's knee isn't considered a major issue anymore, and he missed the wild-card win versus the Eagles while tending to a personal matter. If he puts in a full practice Wednesday, it'll extinguish all doubt about Brown's status. His usage Sunday will likely be minimal, especially if Malik Turner (concussion) is active as well....
