Brown started each of his 15 regular-season games played in 2016, en route to earning his fifth Pro Bowl selection and first-team Associated Press All-Pro honors for the third consecutive year. He's caught at least 106 passes for 1,284 yards in each of the last four seasons while catching 43 touchdowns.
