John Brown, WR (DEN)

Gets opportunity with Denver

The Broncos signed Brown to their practice squad Tuesday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

Brown worked out for the Broncos earlier in the day and evidently made enough of an impression in the workout for the team to sign him. The 31-year-old speedster wasn't able to crack the Raiders' 53-man roster coming out of the preseason, but he could have a clearer path to a promotion in Denver while Jerry Jeudy (ankle) and KJ Hamler (knee) are on injured reserve. While with Buffalo in 2020, Brown hauled in 33 of 52 targets for 458 yards and three touchdowns across nine games.
