Philly Brown is back in the NFL.
Former Ohio State wide receiver Corey “Philly” Brown is signing with the Buffalo Bills, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.
The 25-year-old Brown spent training camp with the Bills but was released on Sept. 3.
One of Buffalo’s starting wide receivers, Jordan Matthews, suffered a broken thumb during Sunday’s win over the Atlanta Falcons and is out indefinitely. This created a spot for Brown.
Following the injury to WR Jordan Matthews, source says the #Bills are signing WR Philly Brown. He spent training camp with them, too.
