Commanders could sign Marquise Brown

Kliff Kingsbury was part of the brain trust that brought Marquise 'Hollywood' Brown to the Arizona Cardinals. The wide receiver was set to provide Kyler Murray with another legitimate option in the passing game with DeAndre Hopkins' future looking uncertain. He was a solid addition, even if he didn't reach the heights many anticipated.

Brown had a down year by his normally high standards last season. He brought in just 51 receptions from 101 targets for 574 receiving yards and four touchdowns. He fared a little better with Kingsbury calling plays in 2023, securing 67 catches for 709 receiving yards and three scores.

The Washington Commanders could use some upgrades across their skill positions. This bears more significance if a rookie quarterback comes into the fold. He'll need proven performers around to smooth the transition. Brown might not have legitimate WR1 capabilities, but he a decent enough option if the money is right.

Arizona will probably try to keep Brown around. They are unlikely to use any sort of tag on the player. This could work in the Commanders' favor if Kingsbury bangs the table to bring him to the organization.

Much will depend on general manager Adam Peters and head coach Dan Quinn's thoughts. Kingsbury is going to have a big say in offensive personnel one suspects. In this likely scenario, Brown becomes an option to consider.
