Draft Scout Jaron Brown News
11/17/16 - WR Jaron Brown, out for the season with a torn ACL, agreed to a one-year contract extension with the team and is signed through the 2017 season. It gives the Cardinals some insurance should they not re-sign receiver Michael Floyd, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent. "It gives us good protection," head coach Bruce Arians said. "We love him as a football player. It looks like he'll be fine health-wise, gives him another year, and he's earned it. Really happy for him and it's good for us because he's a quality special teams player and a really quality receiver."
Added quarterback Carson Palmer, "I'm excited. Jaron's a guy you don't want to lose. What he brings to the team, because he can play special teams, he plays every spot at receiver. He's physical, he's got speed, he catches the ball. He catches 50-50 balls really well. Just a very, very well-rounded receiver."
10/25/16 - WR Jaron Brown has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and will undergo season-ending surgery, coach Bruce Arians said on Monday.
Brown, who suffered the injury in the first half of Arizona's 6-6 tie with Seattle, becomes the sixth key player to land on injured reserve this season, joining running back Chris Johnson (groin), safety Tyvon Branch (groin), right guard Evan Mathis (ankle), tight end Troy Niklas (wrist) and cornerback Mike Jenkins (knee).
Arians said Brittan Golden and J.J. Nelson will help replace Brown at the wide receiver spot, but that Brown's absence on special teams, where he had been a core performer, will be sorely missed.
10/20/16 - WRs Jaron Brown (knee) and John Brown (hamstring) missed a second consecutive day of practice Thursday, further clouding their availability for the Sunday night game against the Seahawks. If they can't go, J.J. Nelson and Brittan Golden would get extra snaps in Arizona's regular offense. It might also open the door to more targets for Michael Floyd, who has had a disappointing season thus far.
10/18/16 - WR Jaron Brown suffered a knee injury during Monday night's game, and according to coach Bruce Arians, he will be day-to-day leading up to Sunday night's game against the visiting Seahawks. "We'll see if he needs a brace," Arians said.
08/26/16 - WR Jaron Brown continued to be the story of camp for the Cardinals, catching everything in sight despite only moving up one spot on the depth chart from No.5 to No.4. "The main thing is he's gotten opportunities," quarterback Carson Palmer said. "For whatever reason over the years he just hasn't been on the field a ton because there are guys in front of him and he's been the young guy, the undrafted guy. With 'Smokey' (John Brown) being down for a number of days of practice and then J.J. (Nelson) being down and Larry (Fitzgerald) being down, he's just gotten that opportunity and he seized it. That's the definition of next man up. I think he embodies that very well because we were down three receivers at one point and then Brittan (Golden) was down, too, so four receivers. The next man up needs to come make plays and he's done that every day in camp."
