Brown, the 51st overall pick out of Mississippi in 2019, has 185 receptions for 2,995 yards and 24 touchdowns in three seasons.
The wideout has only played a full season once, as a rookie, but should give quarterback Jalen Hurts another playmaking wide receiver to pair with 2021 first-round pick DeVonta Smith and Quez Watkins. The Birds still have 2020 first-rounder Jalen Reagor on the roster, too.
