Seattle has been a tough fit for Jaron Brown, the former Clemson receiver who signed a deal this year with the Seahawks.
The team has a run-happy offense and already had elite pass-catchers on the team, limiting Brown’s ability to show what he can do.
But the Cheraw native was able to put his skills on display Sunday when he hauled in two touchdown passes in the Seahawks’ 43-16 rout of the San Francisco 49ers.
Brown got it going in the first quarter, snagging a four-yard score to produce the first points of the day for either team.
Then, less than a minute into the fourth, quarterback Russell Wilson found him again, this time on an 18-yard dart between two defenders.
Brown scored the first touchdown of the game on a 4-yard toss from Russell Wilson, and caught an 18-yard pass for a TD from Wilson in the fourth quarter. He finished with three catches for 67 yards, and for the season has 11 catches for 150 yards and five touchdowns.
