2022 marked what was easily the best season of Noah Brown’s young career. With Amari Cooper departed and Michael Gallup recovering from a torn ACL, the former seventh-round pick had his chance to shine as a starter in the Dallas Cowboys offense. Appearing in 16 games while making 13 starts, the wide receiver finished the year with 43 receptions for 555 yards and three touchdowns on 74 targets. All of these were career-bests for Brown, as was his 7.5 yards per target.
Brown originally entered the NFL as a seventh-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Selected by the Dallas Cowboys, the Ohio State product spent the majority of his rookie season as a depth receiver and special teams player. Appearing in 13 games, Brown finished his inaugural season with four receptions for 33 yards on nine targets. His limited role continued into 2018, as he recorded just five receptions for 54 on eight targets during his eight games of action.
However, patience paid off, as Brown started to see an increased workload in 2020. Playing in all 16 games while making one start, the wide receiver finished the season with 14 receptions for 154 yards on 24 targets, and he also carried the ball one time for four yards.
Brown hit free agency in the 2021 offseason, but eventually decided to re-sign with the Dallas Cowboys. During his first year back, Brown finished the season with 16 receptions for 184 yards on 25 receptions.
Since signing his rookie contract, Noah Brown has played in 66 games while making 18 starts. While on the field, the former seventh-round pick has recorded 82 receptions for 980 yards and three touchdowns on 140 targets, primarily from Dak Prescott.
