It’s hard to imagine scenarios where Jones makes the Tennessee Titans roster.

At the risk of sounding disrespectful, ‘Fred Brown‘ doesn’t even sound like someone that should be hauling in passes from Ryan Tannehill on Sundays. There’s no ring to his name at all.

Okay, maybe that actually was disrespectful after all, but let’s be honest. It’s true. A guy’s name has absolutely nothing to do with how he’ll perform as a pro though. Still, even though we all know that was meant to be a joke and we’re clowning here, some football references can be made about the six-foot-one and 195-pound Brown.

He actually has a little bit of a resume. That’s something that can’t be said about the aforementioned Lipscomb who has yet to haul in his first NFL pass in a game that counts against his team’s win-loss total.

Brown went undrafted in 2017 before landing with the rival Indianapolis Colts, but since then, he’s seen two other locker rooms from 2018 to 2020 before being added to the Titans roster on May 4th.

His run in Denver with the Broncos has been his longest. There, he appeared in 14 games and started one of them, hauling in two receptions on three targets for 21 yards. That isn’t going to help him make a roster in 2021, but one has to believe that even though he doesn’t have much of a shot to earn a place with the Titans, he may have a better shot than the aforementioned Lipscomb.
