Seahawks waived RB Bryce Brown.

With Bruce Irvin (MCL) sidelined, LB Eric Pinkins was promoted to the active roster. The move suggests Seattle fully expects Marshawn Lynch (questionable, abdomen) to play this week. 24-year-old Brown should resurface as a No. 3 back.
Nov 21 - 4:42 PM

Seahawks signed RB Bryce Brown.

QB B.J. Daniels was waived in a corresponding roster move. Six weeks after getting waived by the Bills, Brown has finally found a new home. Still only 24, Brown has freakish athleticism, but lacks feel as a runner. He's had ball-security issues his entire football playing career, and too often bounces runs outside. He's just a flier for the Seahawks. His time on the 53-man roster could be brief.

Free agents RBs Bryce Brown and Storm Johnson worked out for the Titans on Tuesday.

Brown continues to get sniffs as a free agent, but has yet to latch on with a team following his release from the Bills last month. Super talented and still young at 24, Brown has at least shown he can play at the NFL level.

Free agent RB Bryce Brown worked out for the Colts on Tuesday.

The Horseshoe also hosted Ahmad Bradshaw. The Colts have very little depth behind Frank Gore, and could end up making a signing.
Oct 6 - 6:03 PM

Free agent RB Bryce Brown worked out for the Jets on Tuesday.

Brown has gotten a few nibbles since getting cut by the Bills, including a workout with the Patriots last week. The Jets could use an extra back with starter Chris Ivory battling a quad injury. Even if he signs, Brown won't move the needle much.

Free agent RB Bryce Brown worked out for the Patriots on Friday.

The Bills waived him earlier this week. The Pats have a full backfield now that LeGarrette Blount is back from his one-game suspension so it's a little curious they'd kick the tires on Brown. The former seventh-round pick tallied just 126 yards on 36 carries last season.

Bills waived RB Bryce Brown.

Reckless GM Doug Whaley surrendered a fourth-round pick for Brown during last year's draft, but he failed to impress both Doug Marrone and Rex Ryan. No. 4 on the depth chart, Brown was a healthy scratch for Sunday's upset of the Colts. His Bills career ends with just 52 touches across seven games. Still only 24, Brown has home-run hitting ability as a runner, but a frustratingly-low football IQ. He's addicted to bouncing runs outside, and has ball-security issues. Brown's breakaway skill-set and relative youth will earn him another chance, but he's running out of time to fix his on-field problems.

Bills RB Bryce Brown is inactive for Week 1 against the Dolphins.

There was speculation Brown could see a nice role in the Bills' backfield this week, but he remains buried deep on the depth chart. Brown could eventually earn his release. Karlos Williams is backing up LeSean McCoy against Miami. Also inactive for the Bills are QB E.J. Manuel, WR Marquise Goodwin, LB Tony Steward, OG Gabe Ikard, TE Chris Gragg and DT Andre Fluellen.
Sep 13 - 11:33 AM

FOX Sports' Alex Marvez cautions to "not be surprised" to see Bryce Brown "receive a good chunk of playing time" Week 1 against the Colts.

Marvez cites "injuries" in the Bills' backfield as the reason for Brown's snaps to rise. LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Karlos Williams (abdominal) are working their way back from ailments, but are believed to be on track for the opener. It's possible the Bills won't push them for their normal workloads, but it's hard to see Brown getting significant reps unless McCoy or Williams misses the game.
Sep 9 - 9:38 AM

Bills RBs coach Anthony Lynn says Bryce Brown needs to carve out a role on special teams.

The implication being, he doesn't have one on offense behind LeSean McCoy, Karlos Williams and Anthony Dixon. Brown is lucky he kept his roster spot over the weekend. He's well off the re-draft radar.
Sep 8 - 5:20 PM

NFL Network's Albert Breer reports the Bills have had "trade discussions" involving Bryce Brown.

They'd likely be willing to take a conditional sixth- or seventh-rounder, just one year after GM Doug Whaley coughed up a fourth-round pick to acquire Brown from the Eagles. Never a coaching-staff favorite, Brown's penchant for fumbling and bouncing runs outside has his NFL career in serious question.
Sep 5 - 4:07 PM

ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak expects Bryce Brown to be traded or released.

Brown has been buried on the depth chart all summer, and missed time with a hamstring issue. Brown has mouthwatering raw ability, but frustratingly little feel as a runner. Brown is still only 24. He'd get scooped up elsewhere if he's waived.
Aug 24 - 3:29 PM

Bryce Brown had six carries for 52 yards and a touchdown in Buffalo's preseason opener.

Brown was the third back through Buffalo's rotation. His training camp fumbles have him in Rex Ryan's doghouse, but Brown managed to outplay rookie Karlos Williams on fewer touches. The Bills could shop Brown for a late-round pick once Fred Jackson (hamstring) and Anthony Dixon (calf) get healthy.
Aug 14 - 11:22 PM

Bryce Brown appears to have fallen behind fifth-round rookie Karlos Williams on the Bills' tailback depth chart.

Brown has continued to fumble away his opportunities -- literally -- on the practice field, while Williams will be a core special teamer for Buffalo. As will be Anthony Dixon. All of them are behind LeSean McCoy and Fred Jackson. Coach Rex Ryan recently called Brown "disappointing, to put it mildly." Brown should be hitting waivers sometime before September begins.
