Seahawks 90-man roster: Tre Brown

With the calendar flipping to July and offseason programs wrapping up across the country, NFL training camps will begin around the NFL in less than a month. To celebrate the new season ahead, the All Seahawks staff will be breaking down the Seahawks’ 90-man roster over the next few weeks, exploring the best and worst case scenarios and what to expect from each player entering the 2022 campaign.

Tre Brown, cornerback

Height Weight: 5-foot-10, 185 pounds

Statistics for 2021: 10 tackles, one pass defensed

Under Pete Carroll and John Schneider, the Seahawks showed a preference for tall, long outside cornerbacks. DJ Reid bucked that trend after getting off waivers from San Francisco in 2020 and played excellent football to close out the season despite not fitting the Seahawks’ usual height and length measurements. With Reed’s performance potentially in the back of their minds, the front office selected similarly sized cornerback Tre Brown of Oklahoma in the fourth round of the 2021 NFL Draft. Brown played in 44 games during his Sooners career and had the lowest passer rating allowed in one coverage in the 2021 NFL Draft of 26.9 on Pro Football Focus. He also did not allow 70 or more yards in coverage during a game in 2019 and 2020 while playing in the pass-happy Big 12 Conference. Brown was just starting to earn more reps in training camp when he suffered a knee injury and began the season on injured reserve. He was activated in Week 6 and made an impact in his first game against the Steelers with a key extended play on third down to force a punt. Brown played in five games with three starts before suffering a torn patellar tendon against the Cardinals in Week 11. He underwent successful surgery in late November with an expected recovery period of six to seven months.
