Loser No. 2

Dyami Brown - Commanders WR

For Jahan Dotson, also see Dyami Brown.

Patience is wearing extremely thin with the former third-round selection. Brown has all the physical tools needed to be a genuine threat in the passing game for the Washington Commanders, but the wideout constantly fluffs his lines when big chances arrive.

Another fine example arrived at the Atlanta Falcons. Sam Howell targeted his old teammate at North Carolina for what would have been another decent gain, but he couldn't bring in the grab and was seldom seen again.

This has been the tale of the tape where Brown is concerned throughout his NFL career. There was hope the physical specimen could significantly increase his influence within Eric Bieniemy's scheme and with a familiar face under center, but it's not working out as many envisaged through six weeks.

With six receptions for 87 receiving yards so far, Brown's once again become an afterthought. Nobody expected him to accumulate Terry McLaurin-type numbers, but improved consistency was the minimum expectation to raise trust levels if nothing else.

Sadly, it hasn't gone according to the script. If the same tired trend continues over the Commanders' remaining 11 games, then Brown might not see out his rookie deal when it's all said and done.

That would be the saddest thing of all.
