Colts Sign Veteran Wide Receiver Vincent Brown

Intro: The Colts ended the month of March by signing one more free agent. Who is new wide receiver Vincent Brown?


INDIANAPOLIS – Before the calendar turns to April (and the draft becomes the center of attention), the Colts made one more free agent move.

The team signed veteran wide receiver Vincent Brown on Tuesday afternoon.

At 5-11 and 190 pounds, the 26-year old Brown will come to Indianapolis after four seasons in the NFL (37 career games, 16 starts).

Brown was a third-round pick of the San Diego Chargers back in 2011. His familiarity with the Colts extends back to his days with the Chargers.

In 2011, Jimmy Raye, current Colts VP of Football Operations, was then San Diego's Director of Player Personnel when the Chargers drafted the local product in Brown (both Raye and Brown attended San Diego State University).

A 2012 ankle injury for Brown forced him to miss the entire season, but he bounced back to start 13 games in 2013 and caught 41 balls for 472 yards.

The Oakland Raiders signed Brown just before the start of the 2014 season and he played in seven games there last year (12 catches for 118 yards). He was also named the Ed Block Courage Award recipient for the Raiders in 2014.

Brown's name can be thrown in the mix for the final few Colts wide receiver spots this offseason.

Guys like Duron Carter and Griff Whalen will also be looking to find their own way onto the team's 53-man roster.

With four years in the NFL, Brown is second to Andre Johnson in experience among the Colts wide receivers.
