On Sunday, the San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants will play the first of three consecutive preseason games in New York City.
The 49ers, who won Super Bowl LI, were in the first game of a three-game road trip, and the Giants will be back in action this weekend against the Atlanta Falcons.
Brown, the reigning MVP of the NFL, will be in attendance in New Jersey, where he’s preparing for his upcoming season in the NFL.
But he’s also planning a trip to New York.
Brown says he was one of the most excited about this year’s draft, and his goal was to win it.
“I didn’t have a plan to go to New Jersey,” Brown told ESPN.
“So, my goal is to go there and play for my teammates and help the Giants win.”
It’s an easy one for Brown to say, but he’ll be doing so.
The New York Jets picked Brown fourth overall in the 2016 NFL draft, with the expectation that he would play his way onto the Jets roster this season.
But that plan was put on hold after the Jets released Brown in March of 2019.
Brown had an excellent rookie season for the Jets, with eight catches for 137 yards and three touchdowns.
The Jets traded for Bowe in 2018, and Bowe, who has been on the receiving end of a few more questionable decisions in the past few years, was able to take Brown’s spot on the Jets’ roster.
But Bowe is a different story when it comes to the 49ers.
After spending most of his career in Oakland, Bowe played four seasons in San Francisco before being released in 2019.
In his five seasons in the Bay Area, Bowle caught a combined nine touchdowns in just two seasons.
In two seasons in Oakland he was an offensive weapons in the backfield, with an average of 3.7 yards per carry.
In five seasons with the 49er offense, Bowel had just 1,932 yards and six touchdowns.
Bowe has spent the last three seasons on injured reserve with a torn ACL and MCL, and Brown has been sidelined since May of 2020.
Brown has had his share of injury woes since joining the 49ERS, with four knee surgeries and one ankle injury.
Brown said that it’s something that he had a lot of faith in himself to handle.
“That was a tough decision, and I’m glad that I took a chance on myself,” Brown said.
“For a guy who had a great career in the league, that’s an amazing thing.
In fact, it will be tough for Brown, who played in all three preseason games last year. “
This is my first time to be in the position I’m in now, so it’s going to be tough.”
In fact, it will be tough for Brown, who played in all three preseason games last year.
But his teammates have been on hand for him all season long.
“He was a very important part of this team,” tight end Vance McDonald said of Bowe.
“His leadership is invaluable.
He was the glue that kept us together in the locker room.”
Brown also credits the team’s defensive coordinator, Matt Patricia, for the team turning things around.
“Matt made it work, so to speak,” Brown added.
“And to the people that he coaches, they have great chemistry.
We all know what we’re about and we want to win. “
We all know that we have a lot in common.
We all know what we’re about and we want to win.
And the defensive coaches are going to do everything in their power to make sure that’s the case.”
Brown is looking forward to his new team and his new position.
“It’s great to be on a team that I’ve been on all my life, a team where I can really be myself,” he said.
Brown’s team-first attitude will be welcomed by the Giants.
They will be able to enjoy a preseason game against a New York team that has never beaten the 49ER defense in the regular season.
