Antonio Brown at Receiver

"I think I can be a pretty good receiver," Brown said.

Brown, 26, made several eye-catching receptions during the first day of camp, and Coach Joe Gibbs seems very inclined to use him in certain packages and not just as a return specialist. The Redskins signed Brown last November after Buffalo released him, and he appeared in three games, making Chad Morton, one of Washington's ill-fated 2003 free agent signings, expendable (he was released in June). Receiver Santana Moss will also have a hand in punt returns, Gibbs said, but Brown is the frontrunner to handle those duties in most situations."



I like hearing this... How tall is he?

He's pretty small. I think around 5'8/5'9. But he's freaking quick as hell. Any type of spark on offense will help.

Fastest receiving corps in the league by far.

I only Tivo'd one game last year, that was the season finale with Minnesota. Brown looked like he was a step faster than anyone else on the field, he was FLYING around, plus he's hungry and he'll play his guts out. I hope he sticks with the team.

Re: Antonio Brown at Receiver

So far he's looking like he's stickin' if for any other reason than to return kicks. I love hearing that he's made some great grabs.

Antonio Brown and Taylor Jacobs......both are sleepers this year. Either one of them or both of them will blow up.

Re: Antonio Brown at Receiver

Brown is a Gibbs favorite, he really likes this kid, Brown has Daryl Green type speed, when Green used to return punts on occasion it alway's looked like there wasen't a defender on the field, I think they were so scared of over committing on him that they laid back to much and he ran between them, but it wasen't Green's flat out speed that made him a great return man, it was his ability to stop and cut and be at full speed faster than probably anyone who ever played the game, B.Sanders was great but he wasen't even close to Greens straight ahead speed.

Brown I believe possesses that kind of speed and quickness, not quite in Greens league but very close, the fact that he's showing to have [from what we are hearing very good hands] is a MAJOR plus for our offese, this kid could stretch a defense beyond it's limit's, couple that with the pattened Gibbs comeback routes and we may have found a BIG TIME STEAL!

The most encouraging words coming out of camp as well as the mini camps are Ramseys, he keeps saying he's not used to guys with that kind of speed, as well as the kind of seperation they are creating, I am very encouraged by those statements. Now if we can provide him proper protection we can be very dangerous, but keep in mind Gibbs offense really only runs well when the QB has big time protection, it's not a west coast style 3 steps and dump it it need's a comfortable QB to operate properly, the QB's are asked to hold the ball a little longer and look deep first, this requires a line that will have the QB's trust, but when this happens the offense is a thing of beauty.


Let's see, Moss, Patten, Jacob's, and Brown, all out on a pass pattern together with Portis in the backfield, I would love to see a defense scramble to try and match up with that kind of speed? In fact I would like to see that combo on the relay's at the next olympics!

Brown will make the team so long as he doesn't shoot up some people or host a party with guns or something....

Or take steroids or get caught DUI, but your aforementioned events are just a catalyst to MY aforementioned events.

He is a 8'9" man beast: Never mind, I tried this in an other thread and only one guy got the Bill Brasky reference. In all seriousness, do they add to people's height and weight at the pro level? I only played high school, and I remembered laughing when I looked in the paper, not only at opposing teams, but my own team. All of a sudden, every dude was at least 2 inches taller and 20 pounds heavier.

Re: Antonio Brown at Receiver

Our receiver will be able to torch a defense with thier speed and look at home on the Stonehenge stage mockup in SpinalTap.
