Justin Brown claimed off waivers by Buffalo Bills


The Buffalo Bills claimed a 2014 offseason hype bunny off waivers from the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Wide receiver Justin Brown, singled out for a "great" minicamp last June, opened the 2014 season as the Steelers' No. 3 receiver.

After failing to produce in the first six games, he fell out of favor and lost his job to playmaking rookie Martavis Bryant. Brown didn't play a single snap over the final 11 games of the season, as Ben Roethlisberger's aerial attack hit its stride.

Brown is the latest in a line of Steelers shuffling off to Buffalo, where former Pittsburgh pro personnel coordinator Doug Whaley runs the front office.

The 6-foot-3 former sixth-round draft pick will battle for a roster spot behind Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods, Chris Hogan and Marquise Goodwin.
