Saints signed WR Vincent Brown.
Brown continues to hang around and earned the contract after a workout, which also included Hakeem Nicks, for the Saints last week. Brown, 27, has caught 13 balls across eight games the past two seasons. The Saints were looking for a veteran mentor at receiver after releasing Marques Colston. Brown is an extreme long shot to make much of an impact if he makes the team. May 23 - 10:45 AM

Date:

Chargers waived WR Vincent Brown.

It's an indication Stevie Johnson (groin) is ready to rock for Week 17. Brown was active in three weeks during his second go-round as a Bolt. One month shy of his 27th birthday, Brown is just about out of the league.

Chargers signed WR Vincent Brown.

He's a low-upside flier for the desperate Chargers. A 2011 third-rounder, Brown's career got off to a promising start with the Bolts, but he hasn't been the same since breaking his ankle in 2012. Brown has looked like more of a tight end than receiver when on the field the past few seasons. Even if he's forced into snaps for San Diego's woebegone receiver corps, he's well off the fantasy radar.

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.

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.
Wed, Nov 5, 2014 06:17:00 PM

Raiders declared WR Vincent Brown, QB Matt McGloin, CB Carlos Rogers, CB Chimdi Chekwa, CB Keith McGill, G Tony Bergstrom, and TE David Ausberry inactive for Week 9 at Seattle.

Brown is sidelined with a hamstring strain. The Raiders' three-receiver set will involve Andre Holmes, James Jones, and Kenbrell Thompkins, with Brice Butler mixing in as a streak-route specialist.
Sun, Nov 2, 2014 03:02:00 PM

Vincent Brown (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 9.

Brown suffered a setback with his hamstring last week and will miss his fourth straight game. The Raiders will continue to go with Kenbrell Thompkins behind Andre Holmes and James Jones.

Raiders declared WR Vincent Brown, QB Matt McGloin, CB Keith McGill, LB Bojay Filimoeatu, OL Tony Bergstrom, OL Matt McCants, and TE David Ausberry inactive for Week 8.

There are no surprises amongst the Raiders' inactives list.
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.
Fri, Oct 24, 2014 06:39:00 PM

Raiders declared WR Vincent Brown, QB Matt McGloin, CB Keith McGill, FB Marcel Reece, OL Khalif Barnes, G Tony Bergstrom, and DE Justin Tuck inactive for Week 7 against the Chargers.

Oft-injured throughout his San Diego career, Brown has now missed back-to-back games with a hamstring injury in Oakland.
Sun, Oct 19, 2014 03:01:00 PM

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.
