2:56pm: It’s a minimum salary deal for Brown, tweets Mike Chappell of RTV6.
2:38pm: The Colts have added another potential weapon to Andrew Luck‘s arsenal, announcing today in a press release that they’ve signed wide receiver Vincent Brown to a new contract. Brown will get a one-year deal from the team, according to ESPN’s Adam Caplan (via Twitter).
Brown, 26, 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 in 2014, ultimately receiving an injury settlement from the Chargers. Brown signed with the Raiders in September, but played sparingly for Oakland in ’14, catching 12 balls for 118 yards in seven contests.
If Brown still has some upside, Indianapolis could be a good spot for him to realize that potential, with Luck throwing him the ball. The Colts signed Andre Johnson earlier this month, and the veteran will see plenty of targets in 2015, but with Reggie Wayne not expected to return to the club, there should still be a number of balls to go around.
Financial terms of Brown’s agreement aren’t yet known, but I’d expect a minimum salary benefit contract.
