Commanders still annoy Amon-Ra St. Brown
There remains hope that Dyami Brown can finally start fulfilling his promise despite showing very little over the last two years. The wide receiver's found it difficult to generate any sort of momentum behind the Washington Commanders' big three in the room, but having his former college quarterback Sam Howell under center could spark the player into life.
Brown was a third-round selection in the 2021 NFL Draft. But there was one player taken after that who remains highly motivated by being overlooked by the Commanders and others around the league.
Amon-Ra St. Brown went No. 112 overall to the Detroit Lions and immediately set about making everyone pay for their lack of conviction. With 196 receptions for 2,073 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns, the one-time USC is well on his way to becoming one of the biggest draft steals in recent memory.
St. Brown mentioned Brown directly when discussing his form after an outstanding rookie season. Based on his comments on Total Access via NFL.com, he's not likely to forget in a hurry.
"I actually still think about it. I actually have my goals written down in my notebook. What I want to achieve every year. So, what I want to achieve this year going into the season, my personal goals, and then right below that I have the 16 receivers written down, where they went to college right below that. And so, I read that whole list three times before I go to practice every day. It's something I'll never forget. Something I make sure I'm always reminded of."- Amon-Ra St. Brown via NFL.com
This is clearly motivating St. Brown, but the onus is now firmly on Brown to start repaying Washington's faith within a more creative scheme implemented by Eric Bieniemy next season.
