Broncos To Sign Marlon Brown

The Broncos have agreed to sign Marlon Brown to a one-year deal, Cameron Wolfe of The Denver Post tweets. The speedy wide receiver has history with coach Gary Kubiak thanks to their time together in Baltimore. Marlon Brown

Brown, who turned 25 in April, spent the last three seasons in Baltimore, though he saw his role in the offense decline since making his debut in 2013. In his rookie season, the Georgia product caught 49 balls for 524 yards and seven touchdowns. He has failed to reach the end zone since then, and recorded just 14 receptions and 112 yards in 2015.

While Brown contributed occasionally on special teams, wasn’t a key piece of that unit in Baltimore last year. When taking into account his reduced role on offense, it was no surprise that the team opted not to extend him an RFA tender earlier this offseason. The Ravens re-signed Brown to a lesser salary in mid-March, but dropped him from the roster in May.

    speedy? not so much. has a ton of size actually. long history together? did we forget kubiak was only in baltimore for one year….so just a bit of history…

    This could very well be an excellent fit for the Broncos, but still someone has to get him the ball…

    Kubiak knows the kind of players that fit his scheme and the ones he WANTS. He wouldn’t have signed him if he wasn’t capable of doing great things for us ! Just saying !!!

    Interesting… I hadn’t been following NFL too closely in recent years; and think the one & only time Marlon Brown’s name ever seen in print was on 2009 ‘NSD as a late add (from TN?) to UGA’s recruiting class. I am a Georgia fan and don’t remember him playing much – if at all – in Athens; so I’m glad to see he made it to The NFL (via whatever path) and hope he does well for The Broncos and their fans. Denver did quite well as I recall with another Georgia player who got lost in the UGA system. Think his name was Terrell Davis or something.. .
