John Brown explains why he signed with Bills
In turn, Buffalo pivoted their attention towards other available wide receivers in the free-agent market, and Baltimore Ravens receiver John Brown fell unto the team’s lap.
On Tuesday, Brown was confirmed to have signed with the Buffalo Bills, giving second-year quarterback Josh Allen another viable target in the passing game. The five-year wideout started all but one of the Ravens’ 16 regular-season games, finishing with 715 receiving yards and five touchdowns with a career-best average of 17 yards per catch.
Brown had the luxury of weighing his options in free agency following a banner campaign, but ultimately chose to head northward to the wintry tundra at Orchard Park.
The Bills’ official Twitter page shared Brown’s rather hilarious take as for why he decided to become a Bill:
WR John Brown: “I made the decision with my heart and I feel at home in Buffalo. I don’t think there is anywhere else that you could go and have the fans serve you chicken wings at the airport.” #GoBills pic.twitter.com/BuQBwR3vyb

There’s no denying that the Bills have one of the most passionate fanbases in the NFL. Brown is very much appreciative of the adoration coming from Bills Mafia, especially considering the healthy portions of chicken wings involved in his now daily diet.
While the 28-year-old’s heart is in its right place, his heart should also be cautious about gobbling down one too many wings to keep his speed on the field in check.
All jokes aside, Brown should have little to no problems transitioning from one team to another.
His positive demeanor judging from his take on the Buffalo organization above speaks volumes about his character, which bodes well for a Bills team seeking a return to playoff contention form.
