What are the expectations for Vincent Brown this coming season?

Brown went into last season with high expectations, despite returning from an ugly ankle injury and he wasn’t able to live up to that billing. He didn’t come close to those expectations with his production on the field.

He got the playing time with all the injuries on the roster, but there were too many times that he disappeared. He was held without a catch in two games last season and completed another pair of games with just one catch. We needed more production out of him last season, but he wasn’t able to get the job done.

With voluntary workouts starting today, Vincent Brown will need to make an impression on the staff. He might be fighting to keep his roster spot. The Chargers don’t have a ton of depth at the position, but we already saw what type of production that he had on the field as a starter. We need him to play better this season.

If Malcom Floyd returns to the field, that would push Brown to 4th on the depth chart. The team may want to draft a wide receiver and that could push Brown even further on the depth chart.

Seyi Ajirotutu was re-signed this season and he can help the team on special teams. That gives him an advantage for a roster spot. He could push out Vincent Brown for a spot.

The potential for Vincent Brown was high under Norv Turner, but he has not been able to flourish with Mike McCoy. He will need to step it up in training camp. He is on the last year of his rookie deal.
