  Bengals | Make roster moves    Fri Aug 24, 03:28 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals waived DT Luke Black, RB Aaron Brown, QB Tyler Hansen and OG Matt Murphy Friday, Aug. 24. The Bengals also placed CB Brandon Ghee (wrist), CB Shaun Prater (knee), WR/CB Taveon Rodgers (shoulder), S Robert Sands (chest) and G Travelle Wharton (knee) on Injured Reserve.

Footballguys view: Ghee and Prater were possibly battling for a seventh cornerback spot, so this could free up a spot for an extra running back or wide receiver on the opening day roster.

The Cincinnati Bengals have signed free-agent RB Aaron Brown (Lions). Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

  Lions | Aaron Brown earns spot    Sun Sep 4, 03:04 AM

Detroit Lions RB Aaron Brown earned a spot on the team's final roster with a strong showing during the preseason. Brown has displayed good speed and the ability to make plays by catching the ball out of the backfield.

Footballguys view: If Jahvid Best misses time this season, think of Brown as the Danny Woodhead to Jerome Harrison's Benjarvus Green-Ellis in Patriot backfield terms. Both could have value in redraft PPR leagues.

  Lions | Aaron Brown pushing for roster spot    Sun Aug 28, 07:40 PM

Detroit Lions RB Aaron Brown is pushing for a roster spot with the team. He had nine carries for 30 yards rushing against the New England Patriots Saturday, Aug. 27, and said he is starting to focus more on the details now that he has picked up the team's system. He also had 48 yards receiving during the game.

Footballguys view: Brown is a good all-around back and could give the team quality depth at the RB position. However, he's no more than third-string on the depth chart right now behind Jahvid Best and Jerome Harrison.

  Lions | Two competing for No. 3 RB job    Sun Aug 7, 03:11 PM

Detroit Lions RB Maurice Morris and Aaron Brown are competing for the No. 3 running back job during training camp.

Footballguys view: Morris is a seasoned veteran and has to be considered the favorite to win the job. He won't see much production behind Jahvid Best and Mikel LeShoure unless injuries hit the depth chart in front of him.

Detroit Lions RB Aaron Brown is not likely to fit into the team's plans going forward, and he is a longshot to make the roster.

Detroit Lions RBs Maurice Morris and Kevin Smith (knee) may both be active during Week 4 against the Green Bay Packers, reports Tom Kowalski, of MLive.com.

  Lions | Aaron Brown competing for roster spot    Sun Aug 8, 01:36 PM

Detroit Lions RB Aaron Brown seems to have cut back on his mental mistakes during training camp, reports Tom Kowalski, of MLive.com. He has been given a lot of reps during practice and still has jaw-dropping speed to go with open-field running ability. Brown is fighting for a roster spot.

Footballguys view: Brown is battling crafty vet Maurice Morris for the third tailback spot on the team, and he fits better in what the Lions want to do on offense this year, so we think he'll win out as long as he continues to play more disciplined, consistent football.

  Lions | Aaron Brown will need to make team as returner    Wed Jul 21, 04:44 PM

Detroit Lions RB Aaron Brown will need to make the team's final roster as a kick returner with other special teams value because offensive coordinator Scott Linehan does not trust Brown in the offense due to mental mistakes, reports Tom Kowalski, of MLive.com.

Footballguys view: Brown is a versatile player who can line up as a running back, slot receiver, or wingback but he'll face an uphill battle to make the final roster if he doesn't improve the mental side of his game.

  Lions | Various players being used on return duties    Fri Jul 16, 02:23 PM

Detroit Lions RB Aaron Brown and WR Derrick Williams handled most of the kickoff return duties during the summer, reports Tim Twentyman, of The Detroit News. RB Jahvid Best, WR Nate Burleson, Williams and others were used on punt returns.

Footballguys view: The outcome of the kick return job is especially important in return yardage leagues because the Lions should be receiving a lot of kickoffs. Nate Burleson and Jahvid Best could also see bumps in return yard leagues.

  Lions | A. Brown loses kick returner job    Tue Dec 15, 01:53 PM

Nicholas J. Cotsonika, of the Detroit Free Press, reports Detroit Lions RB Aaron Brown was benched during the team's Week 14 game after a mistake on a kickoff return. Brown fielded a bouncing ball at the Lions' one-yard line, with the sideline to his left and the goal line behind him. He was tackled at the four-yard line. Head coach Jim Schwartz said Brown could have established himself out of bounds and then touched the ball, making the ball out of bounds and giving the Lions possession at the 40-yard line. He also could have let the ball go. If the ball went out of bounds on the sideline, the Lions would have had it at the 40. If the ball went into the end zone, it could have been a touchback. WR Derrick Williams has taken over the team's kick returner role.

  Lions | Brown has a long way to go    Mon Sep 7, 09:00 PM

John Niyo, of The Detroit News, reports Detroit Lions RB Aaron Brown has shown flashes of speed and playmaking ability. He will serve a role in the team's return game, but Brown has a long way to go before he will be trusted in key situations.

Footballguys view: As Michael Lombardi from NFL Network told us, NFL teams look for young running backs to be great blockers first. Receiving and running the ball are secondary in the eyes of NFL executives. Brown will have to prove that he can protect the quarterback before he's trusted as a third down back. When that does happen, he has the explosiveness to be a dangerous weapon in the open field.

  Lions | Rookie Brown could be the steal of the Lions draft    Wed Aug 26, 11:51 AM

Tom Kowalski, from MLive.com, reports rookie Aaron Brown could be the steal of the draft because of his game-breaking speed. He has the tools to be either a third-down back or a slot receiver, but he's got to do a better job of focusing and eliminating assignment mistakes. He'll contribute on special teams -- and could be the team's kickoff returner -- but he'll be a role player on offense. The more he learns the playbook, the more time he'll see on the field.

Footballguys view: In addition to speed, Brown has very good footwork and can change direction without slowing down too much. Brown could be a very good scatback for the Lions, but he is not built to handle much work between the tackles. Durability is also a concern as Brown missed a lot of time at TCU due to knee and ankle injuries.

  Lions | A. Brown needs to improve pass protection    Mon Aug 24, 03:23 AM

Tom Kowalski, of Mlive.com, reports Detroit Lions RB Aaron Brown is still struggling in his pass protection. He struggled in training camp to recognize and handle the linebacker blitz.

Footballguys view: Brown himself said he knows that blocking is the key to getting playing time in the regular season. We still think Maurice Morris is the smart handcuff to Kevin Smith, but Brown is clearly coming on.

  Lions | Two rookies step up in first preseason game    Sun Aug 16, 01:51 AM

Detroit Lions rookie WR Derrick Williams caught two passes for 35 yards and a touchdown during the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 15, against the Atlanta Falcons. Rookie RB Aaron Brown also stood out, rushing six times for 47 yards and a touchdown, while chipping in two receptions for 51 yards and another score.

Footballguys view: Williams caught his TD from rookie QB Matthew Stafford. Brown showed great speed on his touches. Both are working their way into getting a few touches a game as the best-looking weapons in offense after Calvin Johnson and Kevin Smith.

  Lions | A. Brown competing for No. 3 back job    Wed Aug 12, 01:51 AM

Tom Kowalski, of MLive.com, reports Detroit Lions rookie RB Aaron Brown is competing for the team's No. 3 running back job. The Lions are trying to get him to run more inside the tackles, as Brown likes to bounce everything outside due to his speed. Brown said he is used to running outside, but now he has to change up his game since everyone in the NFL is so much faster than college. He will also see action on kickoff and punt coverage teams, too.

Footballguys view: Brown has a similar skillset to journeyman Aveion Cason (his main competition for the #3 job), but Brown's legs are younger, so he should win the role.
