Dyami Brown – Commanders WR

While there’s been little in the way of genuine production from Dyami Brown over the last two seasons, it deserves some context attached. Generating his share of targets was always going to be difficult with Terry McLaurin, Curtis Samuel, and Jahan Dotson ahead on the wide receiver depth chart, so it’s going to take a monumental effort for more involvement heading into Year 3 of his professional career.

Brown was recently linked with a potential trade away from the franchise, which was denied by sources speaking to John Keim of ESPN. But if another dynamic pass-catcher arrives from the college level, it could push the North Carolina product even further down the pecking order along the way.

Much will depend on how Eric Bieniemy sees Brown fitting into his new, creative offensive scheme. Having his old college teammate Sam Howell potentially become the No. 1 quarterback represents previous chemistry the wideout can put to good use.

If the Commanders are on the fence about Brown’s upside and an interested party comes in with a trade offer, then a discussion must be had. Even if this is unlikely to be anything like the second-round pick they allocated to the player in 2021.

This would be a surprising move, to put it mildly. Brown will likely be around next season, but whether he can force his way into Bieniemy’s plans is another matter.
