Seahawks set to release Brown | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

The Seahawks are planning to release WR Jaron Brown, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's reportedly a cap-related move after the acquisition of DE Jadeveon Clowney. It still comes as a surprise, though, because Brown was slated to open the season as Seattle's #2 WR. Assuming D.K. Metcalf (knee) isn't ready, the Seahawks will be down to Malik Turner, John Ursua and Gary Jennings behind Tyler Lockett.

Seahawks WRs Jaron Brown (knee) and Malik Turner (concussion) are not listed on the final injury report and will be available for Sunday's game against the Packers. Neither is a fantasy option, but their returns make WR David Moore a shakier play.

The Seahawks have re-signed WR Jaron Brown. He was expected to open the season as the team's #2 WR before unexpectedly getting cut over the weekend. Brown should step back into the role -- at least until rookie D.K. Metcalf is ready to return from his knee issue.

"Jaron Brown ... wow, talking about just an unbelievable camp. I mean, really stepping up. ... He's looked dynamic out here." That's what Seahawks OC Brian Schottenheimer said this week about WR Jaron Brown, who has been working with Tyler Lockett and David Moore as the 1st-team wideouts. Brown caught just 14 balls in his 1st season with Seattle, but Schottenheimer admitted that coaches "kind of forgot" about him while Brown was busy doing "much of the dirty work." The departure of WR Doug Baldwin has left fantasy owners projecting who will step up, with rookie D.K. Metcalf garnering much of the hype. We're not getting fired up for Brown, who has averaged just 16.7 receptions through 6 pro seasons. But we'll keep an eye on him and the fight for those top 3 receiver spots in Seattle through the summer.

The Seahawks on Friday agreed to terms with WR Jaron Brown, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Brown spent 5 years with the Cardinals, topping out at 31 receptions. He’ll join a Seattle offense that just lost WR Paul Richardson in free agency after trading away WR Jermaine Kearse last summer. Brown could settle in as the Seahawks’ 3rd option behind Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett. It’s not a fantasy-rich opportunity, though, for a limited talent

Cardinals WR Jaron Brown tore his ACL in Sunday night's tie against the Seahawks, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. With WR John Brown out indefinitely with his sickle-cell issue, Arizona is down to WRs Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd and J.J. Nelson. Nelson played 84% of the offensive snaps last night, hauling in 3 of 7 targets for 84 yards. He's worth a look on waiver wires in deeper fantasy leagues.
