Colts signed WR Vincent Brown, formerly of the Raiders, to a one-year contract.
The 2011 third-rounder appeared in seven games last season, catching 12 passes. The formerly-hyped prospect has never been the same since missing all of 2012 with a broken ankle. He'll be a long-shot for the Colts' final receiver spot. Mar 31 - 3:37 PM

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.

Vincent Brown (hamstring) is listed as probable for Week 10 against the Broncos.

Brown will return after missing the last four games. He shouldn't be more than the No. 4 receiver. Andre Holmes and James Jones will start in two-wide sets.

Vincent Brown (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday.

Brown has been sidelined since Week 5. He shouldn't return as more than the No. 4 receiver. The Raiders will continue to start Andre Holmes and James Jones, with Kenbrell Thompkins likely getting the majority of three-wide snaps.

Sun, Nov 2, 2014 03:02:00 PM

Sun, Oct 26, 2014 02:58:00 PM

Vincent Brown (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 8.

Brown was limited earlier in the week, but may have suffered a setback after not practicing on Friday. He'll miss his third consecutive game, allowing Brice Butler to continue playing in four-wide sets.

Raiders declared WR Vincent Brown, QB Matt McGloin, CB Keith McGill, S Jonathan Dowling, LB Ray-Ray Armstrong, RT Khalif Barnes, and OG Tony Bergstrom inactive for Week 6 versus San Diego.

Denarius Moore is back in the lineup, although his role is unclear with Kenbrell Thompkins, Andre Holmes, and James Jones also active.
Sun, Oct 12, 2014 02:42:00 PM

Vincent Brown (hamstring) is questionable for Week 6 against the Chargers.

Brown suffered a hamstring injury in Friday's practice, putting his Week 6 status in doubt. He served as the No. 3 receiver in Oakland's last game.
Sat, Oct 11, 2014 03:21:00 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.
Sun, Sep 28, 2014 06:37:00 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.

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.
Mon, Sep 15, 2014 12:22:00 PM

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.
