The Seahawks are hoping that cornernback Tre Brown’s injuries are behind him and that the 2021 fourth-round draft pick can continue with his promising NFL career. Promising is the optimum word here. Brown missed the start of his rookie season due to a knee injury but was able to return and claim the left cornerback position for just three games . Brown suffered a season ending knee injury that put him back on the injured reserve.
Brown returned to practice three weeks ago after the Hawks moved him from the Physically Unable to Perform list after getting a clean bill of health from the training staff. The ability to play both cornerback positions will enable Brown to push starters Tariq Woolen, Michael Jackson and Nickel cornerback Coby Bryant. A more likely scenario is that Brown will compete for the left cornerback position for playing time. Given the quality of play by Woolen and Jackson Brown will have to work his way up to the top. It will be a tough climb Woolen and Jackson played every defensive snap against the Buccaneers .
Brown has shown that when healthy he is a playmaker and one can see why Carroll is anxious to get him back on the field and wretch up the Seahawks db competition . In addition to his three starts in 2021 Brown participated in five total games. In those five games Brown did not yield a touchdown while in coverage and more impressive opposing quarterbacks completed just 47% of passes thrown Brown’s direction.
We’re looking towards that happening. He’s done really well. He’s healthy, he’s ready to go. You’ll see us doing something with that.”
