Brown is currently suspended by the NFL for multiple violations of the league’s personal-conduct policy. His suspension will conclude after Week 8, at which point he will be allowed to join the team.
Brown played in just one game last season for the New England Patriots, after an offseason littered with personal and legal mistakes. After the Las Vegas Raiders traded third and fifth round picks for Brown in March of 2019, the team cut the veteran wide receiver in early September after repeated incidents on and off the practice field.
Brown was quickly snapped up by the New England Patriots and Tom Brady, despite allegations of sexual and personal misconduct hanging over him. Brown lasted one game in New England, after allegations of intimidating text messages sent to one of his accusers were made public. The Patriots released him following Week 1.
Brown caught four passes for 56 yards and a touchdown in his lone game of the 2019 season. In 2018 with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Brown caught 104 passes for 1,297 yards and 15 touchdowns. Brown’s 11,263 career receiving yards are good enough for 36th all-time.
