Bio

Vincent Brown was off to a lightning-fast start in 2012 when in an instant, his season suddenly came to an end.

It happened that fast.   

Brown opened the ’12 preseason with a big effort against Green Bay, leading all receivers with four catches for 81 yards. Then just nine days later in the third quarter of the team’s second preseason game against Dallas, Brown caught an 18-yard touchdown pass to give the Bolts a 10-7 lead, but while being tackled from behind after making the catch, Brown suffered a broken left ankle. Initially, there was hope of a return in 2012 but the injury took longer than expected to heal and Brown was lost for the season. His speed and athleticism were sorely missed. 

Brown worked hard to rehabilitate his ankle and actually was able to return to practice late in the ’12 season. With those reps and a full offseason under his belt, he is excited about the prospects of returning to the level that prompted the Chargers to select the former San Diego State Aztec in the third round in the 2011 NFL Draft.     

As a rookie, Brown averaged an impressive 17.3 yards per catch, despite being thrown right into the action as a result of the NFL Lockout. He finished his rookie season with 19 catches for 329 yards and the Chargers were looking forward to big things in 2012.  

When the Chargers drafted Brown, he became the 14th former Aztec drafted by the team, and the first since quarterback Jesse Freitas in 1974. A two-time All-Mountain West Conference pick, Brown left school as the third all-time leading receiver in San Diego State history with 209 catches and 3,110 yards.      

Brown studied philosophy at San Diego State and became the first member of his family to graduate from college when he earned his degree in May 2012. He completed his coursework at the conclusion of his rookie season with the Chargers and while doing so, co-authored an article that appeared in the Journal of the Philosophy of Sport in September 2012.          

So excited were San Diegans that Brown was selected by his hometown team that in Sept. 2011, he and teammate Shareece Wright were invited to throw out the first pitch before a Padres game at Petco Park. 

Nicknamed V.J., Brown enjoys cooking, playing cards and dominoes, listening to music and playing the drums. He is a very talented drummer who learned to play when he was six years old.
