Raiders declared WR Vincent Brown, QB Matt McGloin, CB Carlos Rogers, S Jonathan Dowling, G Gabe Jackson, G Tony Bergstrom, and TE David Ausberry inactive for Week 11 against the Chargers.
The lone surprise here is Brown, who operated as Oakland's No. 3 receiver last week. We suspect Kenbrell Thompkins and Brice Butler will now share those duties with Denarius Moore, behind Andre Holmes and James Jones. Nov 16 - 2:41 PM

Vincent Brown caught 3-of-4 targets for 22 yards in Oakland's Week 4 loss to the Dolphins.

Brown had a role in the offense with Rod Streater (foot) sidelined. One of his "grabs" was a clear fumble where he was ruled down by contact. The play wasn't reviewed. Brown has no fantasy value in the Black Hole.
Sep 28 - 6:37 PM

Raiders signed WR Vincent Brown to a one-year contract.

It's a sign the Raiders expect de facto No. 1 receiver Rod Streater (hip flexor) to miss time. A 2011 third-round pick of the Chargers, Brown appeared to have a bright future ahead of him before breaking his ankle in 2012. He wasn't the same in 2013, and couldn't survive final cuts this summer. Brown moved like a tight end last season, which is a problem since he's 5-foot-11, 190 pounds. He's an inoffensive flier for a team as talent-deficient as the Raiders, but he's not going to make an impact on the football field.
Sep 15 - 5:30 PM

Free agent WR Vincent Brown is working out for the Raiders Monday.

Rod Streater left Sunday's loss with a hip flexor injury. Brown, who was waived by the Chargers prior to Week 1, proved he isn't a serviceable NFL wideout last year while filling in for Malcom Floyd.

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports free agent WR Vincent Brown has drawn interest from at least eight teams, and will begin working out for clubs next week.

Brown was waived by the Chargers with an injury settlement on Saturday. He hasn't practiced since late July due to a calf injury. Brown, 25, caught 19 balls for 329 yards and two scores as a 2011 rookie, but broke his ankle in 2012 and didn't look nearly the same athletically when posting a 41-472-1 line last season for the Chargers. The former third-rounder profiles as a Z receiver at 5'11/190.
Sep 10 - 4:31 PM

Chargers released WR Vincent Brown with an injury settlement.

Brown hasn't practiced since late July, but is reportedly healthy. He was waived/injured reserved last week and is now free to sign with any team.
