We have claimed WR Tony Brown off waivers from Cleveland
The only Tony Brown I know of is the former corner from Bama

2020 UDFA from Colorado

Perhaps Giants had a draftable grade on him but he chose to sign with Cleveland instead.
Undrafted free agent from Colorado - pretty slow (4.65) good skills

The New York Giants have officially claimed WR Tony Brown off of waivers from the Browns on Saturday. Brown wound up going undrafted out of Colorado back in April. He later signed a three-year, $2.28 million contract with the Browns. However, Cleveland waived Brown on Friday.

during his college career at Texas Tech and Colorado Brown caught 115 passes for 1418 yards plus 6 rushes for 33 yards with 8 touch-downs over 4 seasons/36 games


a 3 year $2.28 million contract for an UDFA seems like the Browns really liked him 4 months ago. wonder what changed.

Considering the league minimum salaries for the 3 years (most UDFA contracts are that long), it isn’t an exceptional bonus.

write up says he's a good route runner who can win contested catches, but his 40 means he won't be able to get separation.

reminds me of Cruz....

hope he starts like him....love his hands I think have my new underdog player for this season......did I say that bad word.....season let us pray
GBN had him #55 on their WR list.  
MOOPS : 8/1/2020 6:43 pm : link
They had his WR teammate Laviska Shenault as their #9 WR. He went in the second round to the Jags with a 4.58 40 time. Maybe Brown stood out when Shenault was being scouted?
Nothing to lose. Might as well take a look.

Once they took a look at him they realized

He wasn’t ANTONIO Brown for 3yr $2M , he was TONY Brown !
They tell You he's slow  
Rafflee : 8/1/2020 11:51 pm : link
, but He's standing behind defensive backs, he's making contested and physical Catches and Full Layout Catches. He's physical and he's a heck of a Football Player. Physical and skillful makes for a Good Flyer Pickup

He looks very good running reverses. Could be a hybrid type player. Even in the highlights he wasn't getting separation deep.
I don't know why  
Eric from BBI : Admin : 8/2/2020 9:59 am : link
I didn't think of this earlier. We're going to see a lot fewer of these type of moves this summer because of COVID.


Why roster shuffling will be tougher for Giants, rest of NFL - ( New Window )

Seem to be looking more at this type of receiver presently over 6” with limited speed but good route running skill set. He is also from a school with big name other WR but he produced good numbers as not the main guy. He has some wiggle to his game but seems more slot than outside big legs but thin up top and consistently no real separation to his game even at the collegiate level.
