Amon-Ra St. Brown may be one of many NFL’s finest younger receivers now, however there was a time when it felt just like the league didn’t consider in his capability. Within the 2021 draft, 16 totally different receivers — of which St. Brown can recite all from reminiscence — have been drafted earlier than the playmaker discovered a house with the Lions.
After completely scorching the Commanders to the tune of a nine-catch, 116-yard, two-touchdown efficiency on Sunday, St. Brown recalled the efficiency of a type of fateful receivers drafted forward of him — unprompted. This time it was Washington’s Dyami Brown, who St. Brown apparently couldn’t even keep in mind taking part in within the sport:
Good lord, Amon-Ra St. Brown simply destroyed the Commanders (and Dyami Brown) once more.

Oh my goodness. I don’t know which a part of St. Brown’s quote stands out to me essentially the most. I’m torn between St. Brown particularly seeing Brown on the opposite sideline and being motivated by his presence and the Lions’ receiver taking at his Washington modern, noting he “didn’t see him within the sport a lot.” (Notice: Brown has zero catches and simply 4 offensive snaps by means of two video games for the Commanders.)
The following unlucky soul on St. Brown’s potential “revenge tour”? Seattle’s D’Wayne Eskridge, who has one catch in six yards by means of two video games of his personal sophomore marketing campaign. Detroit will face the Seahawks in Week 4. It’s not an absolute certainty, however relaxation assured that St. Brown may already be earnestly marking his calendar to outperform his higher-drafted peer.
In case you occurred to be drafted forward of the brilliant Lions’ wideout — be careful.
