Brown was one of the most surprising cuts of Sunday, since he is projected to serve as the team’s No. 2 wide receiver while D.K. Metcalf recovers from his knee injury. Alas, the Seahawks had him in the plans all along and simply put him in limbo for a moment so that they could leave the door open for Dickson to play.
Doctors believe that Dickson could recover in time to return this season. In the near term, they’re expected to use tackle George Fant at tight end on occasion to help fill in the gap.
