After going undrafted in 2014, Corey “Philly” Brown brings lighting quick speed to the Panthers offense as he continues to establish himself as an NFL offensive threat.
The second-year pro from Upper Darby, Pa. caught 31 balls for 455 yard and four touchdowns this season. He’s also been solid in the playoffs. In the NFL title game, Brown had four catches for 113 yards, including an 86-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter. In two playoff games, Brown has six receptions with one touchdown and three first downs.
As a four-star recruit coming out of high school, it didn’t take long for Brown to show the NFL that they had made a mistake bypassing him on draft dy.
In just his second month as a pro, Brown returned a 79-yard punt for a touchdown. It was the Panthers first punt return for a touchdown since 2003.
While at Ohio State, Brown started 35 of 48 games in his career. He recorded 145 receptions for 1,750 yards and 15 touchdowns. For his efforts, he was named second-team, all-Big Ten twice.
