TE Pharaoh Brown
The Browns had signed Pharrow Brown in 2019 after a brief stint with the Raiders. He played just two games, before moving on to Cleveland. During his time in Cleveland, he played in nine games, starting in six, and caught two of three passes. The Browns decided that the tight end crop of Brown, David Njoku, Ricky Seals-Jones, Stephen Carlson, and Demetrius Harris just wasn’t cutting it, so guys had to go.
Brown was one of those.
Now, he’s the starting tight end for the Houston Texans for the 2021 season. In his first game with the team, he caught four passes, on five targets, with 67 yards receiving.
Brown was one of three players on the Texans to be targeted five times or more on the day, with the other two being Brandin Cooks and Danny Amendola. Brown will see a lot of passes thrown his way but he was more known for his blocking in Cleveland and will need to be just as valuable in Houston.
The Texans are trying to build a multi-faceted team in Houston and took a risk signing veteran running back Mark Ingram and former Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay. They also still have David Johnson on the roster, making this a team with a lot of name-value but not a lot of young talent.
