Marlon Brown

Scheduled to become a restricted free agent in 2016, Brown is a guy who showed a ton of promise as an undrafted rookie but has done absolutely nothing the last two seasons.  After catching 7 touchdowns in 2013, he hasn’t recorded one since despite numerous opportunities.

The Ravens likely would have already let Brown walk if they had enough warm bodies at the wide receiver position, but they are incredibly short handed at the moment.  Brown continues to see 3-4 targets a game but has managed only 10 catches for 84 yards through 6 games.

Brown currently ranks as Pro Football Focus’ 170th wide receiver out of 181 qualifying players in the NFL at his position.  That’s what happens when you secure a mere 10 of 23 targets and rarely get open.  Despite his early promise, it’s safe to say that the Ravens can do better at this point.
