A speedy receiver out of Notre Dame, Brown was seen as a potential punt return option, but saw limited opportunities in the . Now with the Bengals, he'll likely compete with 2016 rookie Alex Erickson, who handled most of the punt returns for them this season.

For the Cowboys, their need at WR is becoming more eminent now, as and will both hit soon. Butler did little to secure any long-term status on this team through part of 2015 and then in 2016, while Terrance Williams could command more money than the Cowboys are willing to pay.
