Commanders could sign Noah Brown

Noah Brown entered the league as a seventh-round draft pick of the Dallas Cowboys back in 2017. Each year, he would show just enough to stick with the team. And each year, he would make a play of two that had fans expecting bigger things.

Unfortunately for Brown, he could never sustain success. Still, he had his best year in 2022 and was able to get a one-year deal with the Houston Texans for the 2023 campaign.

Playing in a revived Texans offense with rookie quarterback sensation C.J. Stroud, Brown finally blossomed. Though injuries limited him to just 10 games, he developed into a big-play threat, averaging more than 17 yards per catch on 33 receptions. That placed him No. 4 in the league, sandwiched between Amari Cooper and D.K. Metcalf.

Brown is not going to be as productive as those elite players. Like D.J. Chark, he could be a valuable deep weapon for the Washington Commanders if the Texans allow him to test the free-agent market.

He would provide size at 6-foot-2 and 215 pounds. Brown is still a few years away from his 30th birthday, which is another big positive. He's likely to get half of what it would take to sign someone like Chark.
