"John Brown is blowing everyone away," a team source told azcentral.com. "Explosive and sudden. Great hands and a better route runner than we even thought."
The Pittsburg St. (KS) product will add some excellent speed at the WR position and can also be a threat in the special teams department as well.
"I'm just a person who plays fast," Brown said. "When I got in the East-West Shrine Game I showed them that I can play with speed. I think it will be faster here, but I think I will adjust real quick."
The Cards are counting on it. The 24-year-old Brown is just 5-foot-10 and weighs 179 pounds so his speed and ability to get into open space where he can inflict damage on opposing defenses will be key.
The Homestead, Florida native finished his collegiate career as Pittsburg State's all-time leader in receptions (185), receiving yards (3,380) and receiving touchdowns (34). He knows some people may wonder how good he will be coming from a Division II school.
That's fine with him.
"I've always had a chip on my shoulder — a point to prove since I was little," Brown explained. "They told me I wasn't going to be able to play varsity (high school). They told me I wasn't going to start in college and they told me I wouldn't make it to the NFL. I still feel like I have a chip on my shoulder."
That can only help the Red Birds as they look to improve an offensive attack that ranked 16th in the NFL in scoring last year (23.7 points per game).
