Ravens signed WR John Brown, formerly of the Cardinals, to a one-year, $5 million contract.
With incentives he could earn up to $6.5 million. This has to feel like somewhat of a letdown for the Ravens, who came up short in their pursuit of both Jarvis Landry and Donte Moncrief. Brown became a household name when he went for 1,000 yards in 2015 but has struggled to stay on the field while battling a sickle-cell condition. The 27-year-old is an adequate replacement for deep threat Mike Wallace but obviously comes with significant injury risk. He joins an underwhelming Baltimore pass-catching corps featuring declining vet Jeremy Maclin and draft bust Breshad Perriman. Mar 13 - 7:02 PM

The Baltimore Sun reports the Ravens are "pretty far down the road" with free agent John Brown.

If healthy, Brown would be a nice addition to the Ravens' stagnant receiver corps. "If healthy" is far from a guarantee with Brown, however. Old when he entered the league in 2014, Brown turns 28 next month.

John Brown caught 0-of-4 targets in Arizona's Week 17 win over the Seahawks.

It was a fitting end to another bitterly disappointing year for the soon-to-be 28-year-old wideout. Constantly injured, Brown appeared in just 10 games, posting career lows in both catches (28) and yards (299). He's now headed to free agency. With coach Bruce Arians — who loves receivers of Brown's skill-set — looking likely to retire, it's quite possible Brown is gone from the desert next season.

John Brown (toe) returned to Cardinals practice on Thursday.

Brown returned in Week 16 after a four-game layoff, catching two passes for 28 yards and a touchdown. He should be out there for Sunday's finale against the Seahawks.

John Brown (toe) didn't practice on Wednesday.

He returned from a four-game absence in Week 14, nabbing two-of-four targets for 28 yards against the Giants. Brown hasn't been on the fantasy radar in quite some time.

John Brown caught 2-of-4 targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in Week 16 against the Giants.

Brown made his return after sitting out the last month. His only highlight was a 15-yard touchdown on Arizona’s first drive of second half, but he looks to have regained his role as the No. 2 target behind Larry Fitzgerald. An impending free agent, Brown is playing for his next contract.

John Brown (toe) is questionable for Week 16 against the Giants.

This might finally be the week for Brown, who has sat out the last four games while battling turf toe. Even against the 2-12 Giants, Brown can't be trusted in fantasy this week.
Fri, Dec 22, 2017 04:02:00 PM

John Brown (toe) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

Maybe Brown is ready to return after missing the past four games. If he does, he will be well removed from fantasy relevance with Drew Stanton under center.
Thu, Dec 21, 2017 04:34:00 PM

John Brown (toe) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Brown has missed the last four games with turf toe. He's been limited in practice the last two weeks and could be close to healthy. Brown won't be on the fantasy radar when he returns.
Wed, Dec 20, 2017 04:36:00 PM

Cardinals declared WR John Brown, QB Matt Barkley, TE Jermaine Gresham, CB C.J. Goodwin, LB Gabe Martin, DE Josh Mauro and OG Earl Watford inactive for Week 15 against the Redskins.

Brown is missing his fourth straight game with turf toe while Gresham is battling an illness. Corey Peters (ankle) is active for Arizona.
Sun, Dec 17, 2017 11:36:00 AM

John Brown (toe) has been ruled out for Week 15.

J.J. Nelson and Jaron Brown will continue as Arizona's primary outside receivers with Larry Fitzgerald in the slot. Brown will be an interesting case as a 2018 free agent as a highly-talented player with significant durability questions.
Fri, Dec 15, 2017 03:23:00 PM

John Brown (toe) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

He's sat out the last three games with turf toe. Even if he returns against Washington in Week 15, Brown won't be on the fantasy radar.
Wed, Dec 13, 2017 04:42:00 PM

John Brown (toe) is out for Week 14 against the Titans.

Brown returned to a limited practice on Thursday but wasn't seen at Friday's session. It's possible he suffered a setback with his turf toe. Sunday will mark Brown's third straight absence. He can't be relied on in fantasy.
Fri, Dec 8, 2017 03:09:00 PM

John Brown (toe) returned to Cardinals practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Brown has missed the past two weeks. This gives him a shot to return against the Titans, but we would consider him more doubtful than questionable. Even if Brown does play, it's hard to see him cracking the top 60 in Rotoworld's Week 14 receiver ranks.
Thu, Dec 7, 2017 04:28:00 PM

John Brown (toe) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

At this point, it would make more sense for us to wait to blurb Brown again until he actually does practice. He's still week to week with turf toe.
