Vincent Brown Makes List Of Most Disappointing Players of 2013

RotoWorld released a list of most disappointing players of the 2013 season and Vincent Brown ranked in as number 20 on the list:

20. Vincent Brown

A one-time draftnik favorite, Brown entered 2013 as a certifiable sleeper. He exits it as a certified bust, having caught just 41 passes for a team that lost its No. 1 and No. 2 receivers. Leapfrogged by Keenan Allen and out-produced by Eddie Royal, Brown’s promise appears to have gone down with the fractured ankle that cost him all of 2012. He’s a tight end stuck in a 5-foot-11, 184-pound body.

That last line is painful. A tight end stuck in a 5-foot-11, 184 pound body! OUCH! It sounds about right though. That is the struggle with Vincent Brown on this offense. He didn’t have a lot of burst in the first place and the injury to his ankle might have taken away his ability to create any separation at all.

Philip Rivers will not throw the ball if you can’t get open. What are the expectations for Vincent Brown for next season?

    Vincent lacks versatility he only can find separation on deep posts and double moves. We need to trade him to a team that still does that like steelers Vikings or maybe look at the way Seahawks use their Doug Baldwin I think his name he is a not so fast guy that produced. Either that or he’s a 4th reciever

    • Padraigh Keogh

      Finally someone else who says to trade Vincent Brown. I have been saying this since he got injured again. Even if get 3rd or 4th round pick or even a lower one so that we can use to trade up.

      • Ernie Padaon

        i would be all about this!!!

      • Sergio Quintero

        Damn you are optimistic, if you think the chargers can get anything more than a 6th round pick after the season he had, you are just plain wrong.

        If they could get a 4th rounder, they would trade him tomorrow, he doesn’t fit this offense.

        • Padraigh Keogh

          As I was saying a late pick we could use to move up on the draft. What ever we get I would take it

          • Sergio Quintero

            A 7th rounder or keep him as a 4th receiver (and cross every finger imaginable that Floyd can play), neither option looks particularly attractive.

            I wouldn’t be surprised that the chargers sign Danario Alexander but to expect him to play more than 5 games in a season seems like a losing bet.

    • Sergio Quintero

      At his current stock you are better served by having as the chargers 4th receiver and call it a day, an unathletic low producing WR no way nets anything resembling a middle round pick.

  • Julien Bélair

    cut him

  • Sergio Quintero

    Any news on when Malcom Floyd when will get his health status report to play in 2014??

    This offense would look a whole lot better with WR who can actually run deep In-Cuts, and penalize defenses for stacking the box with deep passes over the top.

    • Ernie Padaon

      still no word on that… he would be awesome for the offense.

      • Sergio Quintero

        I know defense is a major need but if by some miracle Marqise Lee is there at 25, I run up with the card and don’t look back, in particular as we all expect Floyd retires.

  • Gunnar Martin

    He caught 41 passes? That’s double what it seemed like. Kinda sad. I do believe he’ll rebound next season, though.

    • arnie

      Probably because we were so focused on the one’s that bounced off his hands.

  • tubbs45

    Well, I loved the draft pick at the time, but must admit there is just not any explosiveness, his vertical seems to have been diminished since the ankle injury. I dont think that there is much there in the way of trade bait, but if it came about, I vote yes… sad to say but, It is what it is..

  • arnie

    So there it is. Do we cut a kid that just had his first full season as a Charger, and still learning a new offense? Trade him for a undrafted pick? Because getting anything above that is wishful thinking. At the end of the day, VB is under contract, so why no let him come back, compete, and give him a chance to prove us wrong? That plan did wonders for RM24.
