'WRU' continues to make an impact in the NFL.
Former Clemson receiver Jaron Brown will continue his productive pro career as he will sign with the San Franciso 49ers according to multiple reports.
He is currently going through COVID-19 testing and should be eligible to practice on Thursday.
Brown had 16 catches for 220 yards and two touchdowns last season with the Seattle Seahawks. In 2018, Brown had 14 receptions for 166 yards and five touchdowns.
He had 31 receptions for 477 yards and four touchdowns in 2017. One impressive stat is that he had only ONE DROP on 64 targets during that season.
Back in 2016, he had 11 catches for 187 yards in seven games. In 2015, Brown had 11 catches for 144 yards (13.1 average) and a touchdown. In five seasons with the Cardinals, he caught 86 passes for 1,177 yards and nine touchdowns.
He was undrafted by the Cardinals out of Clemson in 2013 but made the team with an impressive display in rookie camp.
The #49ers are adding depth, as they are expected to sign FA interior OL Hroniss Grasu and FA WR Jaron Brown, pending their final COVID tests, source said. Brown had 220 yards on 16 catches last year with the #Seahawks and Grasu recently spent time with the #Ravens.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 19, 2020
