Dyami Brown, who Lions’ Amon-Ra St. Brown called out, had big game in Week 5
Dyami Brown, who Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown called out earlier this season, finally did something noteworthy on Sunday.
After the Lions beat the Washington Commanders in Week 2, wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown called out the Commanders as one of the teams who passed on him in the 2021 NFL Draft. By connnection, he also called out Dyami Brown, the receiver the Commanders selected in the third round over him.
St. Brown tried to be coy in naming Brown, but we know he knows the names of all 16 wide receivers who were drafted before him.
"The draft, it is what it is,” St. Brown said. “Even the Commanders, they got a guy before me over there. I believe his name is Dyami Brown. I don’t know how many catches he had. You guys can probably tell me that. Or how many yards he had. I don’t forget things like that. I see him across the sideline from where I’m standing during the game, and I’m going to give every team hell.”"
Regarding Brown more specifically, St. Brown had this to say after the Week 2 game.
"I didn’t see him in the game much,”"
Brown played one offensive snap against the Lions.
Dyami Brown, called out by Amon-Ra St. Brown, finally does something noticeable
Entering Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans, Brown had a total of 13 career catches in 19 games. He only added two catches to that total on Sunday, but they went for 105 yards and both went for touchdowns. They were also, as expected, the first two touchdowns of Brown’s career.
This might be a launching point for Brown to have a bigger role moving forward, while and beyond when Jahan Dotson is out for Washington, or it might mean nothing. He’s not worth running out and adding to a fantasy football roster this week, but Brown has finally had a notable outing in the NFL as St. Brown regularly makes the Commanders (and a bunch of other teams) look foolish for passing on him.
