Even though Dallas is already loaded at receiver, offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said that Brown's versatility will allow him to play several different roles in the offense.
"(Brown) is a little bit of an all-around guy," Linehan said, via the Dallas Morning News. "He's an outside receiver with a big frame (6-2, 222). He's kind of got a 'tweener' size when it comes to receiver. He's got a little bit of a TE element to his game as far as his size and the matchup and the people he's blocking. So he should match up well in that area.
"He's a good receiver, too. He has a real consistence game, and he's a smart kid, so we're excited about him."
Brown figures to compete with Lucky Whitehead, Andy Jones and Uzoma Nwachukwu for the No. 6 spot on the depth chart.
The Ohio State product had 32 catches for 402 yards and seven touchdowns last season for the Buckeyes.Back to the Dallas Cowboys Newsfeed
