Brown isn't likely to re-sign with Seattle, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
ANALYSIS
Brown signed a two-year, $5.5 million contract during the 2018 offseason and made it through both years of his deal. He started six of his 30 regular-season games and averaged just 24.2 offensive snaps per contest, catching 30 of 47 targets for 386 yards and seven touchdowns. Brown isn't likely to find a top-three WR role as a 30-year-old free agent, but his ability to contribute on special teams and in the red zone could lead to some interest for a depth job. Meanwhile, the Seahawks don't have a clear No. 3 behind Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf, with options from the current roster including David Moore, Malik Turner, John Ursua and perhaps eventually Josh Gordon (suspension).

2014
Brown's first season in Seattle was bumpy, as he was in the regular rotation here and there but seemingly fell off the grid at other times. Brown was able to find paydirt five times, but there were seven games in which he failed to record even one reception, and he had only three games with more than one catch. The Seahawks added receivers in the draft with D.K. Metcalf, Gary Jennings and John Ursua, so Brown will have a lot of competition during training camp. It does appear Brown will be in the Week 1 starting lineup, as the competition softened with David Moore suffering a shoulder injury in August.
After a five-year stint in Arizona, Brown signed a two-year deal with the Seahawks this offseason and might have the best opportunity of his career. The departure of Jimmy Graham and Paul Richardson leaves 176 targets up for grabs in Seattle. The Seahawks signed Brandon Marshall in May, but Brown should still get a good share of those. Tight ends Ed Dickson, Nick Vannett and a cast of inexperienced wideouts offer little competition for targets. Doug Baldwin is the team's clear No. 1 and Tyler Lockett its field stretcher, but at 6-3, 204, Brown could be a red-zone target and himself ran a 4.40 40 at his pro day. Whatever happens, he'll be playing with the best quarterback of his career in Russell Wilson.
Brown worked his way into the passing equation early on last season due to Michael Floyd's lackadaisical outings and John Brown's health concerns, receiving between two and six targets in each of the first six games. However, an insistence on playing through a balky knee resulted in a torn ACL and the end of Jaron Brown's campaign. Ultimately, he signed a one-year extension within a month and progressed through his recovery with the knowledge that Floyd is out of the picture due to a self-inflicted circumstance. As he approaches the end of the road, he was able to run routes, without cutting, at full speed during OTAs. Due to health concerns from John Brown and underwhelming development from J.J. Nelson, Jaron Brown has been elevated to No. 2 on the wide receiver depth chart, increasing his chances of a breakout in 2017.
Brown is one of the many cogs in the Cardinals' well-oiled machine of wideouts. In three seasons in Arizona, Brown has hauled in 44 receptions for four touchdowns, buried behind the likes of Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, and John Brown on the depth chart. The 26-year-old has the potential to make a splash in any given week but isn't a reliable week-in, week-out fantasy option.
Entering training camp in 2013 as an undrafted free agent, Brown fended off the competition to land the final wide receiver spot on the Cardinals' 53-man roster. Since then, he's maintained active status in all 32 regular season games to date, and followed up an 11/140/1 rookie season with 22 receptions for 229 yards and two touchdowns last year in spite of the rotating cast at quarterback. In particular, he recorded multiple catches in all but one contest from Weeks 9 through 14, racking up 18 grabs (on 25 targets) for 201 yards (11.2 YPC) and one score. Unless the Clemson product takes a step back this offseason, he should act as a pass-catching option outside of Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, John Brown, J.J. Nelson, Andre Ellington, and David Johnson.
Despite his status as an undrafted free agent in 2013, Brown managed to open the year on the 53-man roster and remained active for all 16 outings, racking up 11 catches (on 18 targets) for 140 yards and one touchdown in the process. The receiving corps countered its loss of Andre Roberts in free agency by picking up Ted Ginn and drafting John Brown in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft, but Jaron will have to flounder during the preseason in order to lose out on the No. 5 wideout gig.
