WEDNESDAY, 8:17am: According to Field Yates of ESPN.com (via Twitter), Brown’s one-year pact with the Raiders features an $850K base salary, a $25K signing bonus, and an additional $125K is the wideout hauls in 42 passes, which would be a new career high.
MONDAY, 4:37pm: A little over two weeks after being cut by one AFC West team, wide receiver Vincent Brown has signed with another. Per Adam Caplan of ESPN.com (via Twitter), the former Chargers wideout has agreed to a one-year deal with the Raiders. Brown had worked out for Oakland earlier today, says Caplan (Twitter link).
Brown, 25, spent three seasons in San Diego after being selected in the third round of the 2014 draft, and had a nice season in 2013. The San Diego State product set career-highs in receptions (41) and receiving yards (472), but lost his grip on a roster spot during the preseason this year, ultimately receiving an injury settlement from the Chargers. Brown drew interest from multiple teams last week, and according to Caplan, the Chiefs and Jets were among a group of teams that wanted to work out the receiver this week.
In a related move, according to Caplan (via Twitter), Oakland has waived linebacker Bojay Filimoeatu, who had been added to the roster in advance of this weekend’s game against the Texans. The Raiders had been carrying the maximum 53 players, so a corresponding roster move was necessary to open up a spot for Brown.
