It was originally reported that Brown would be signing with Philadelphia, so it was a little curious when he didn’t appear on the list of undrafted players the Eagles signed. But now he’s here and he becomes the Eagles’ fifth highest ranked UDFA prospect.
Brown played for Division II Shepherd University. The 6-4, 241 pound pass catcher had 99 receptions for 1,580 yards and 22 touchdowns as a senior.
