Brown hauled in 63 receptions this season along with two touchdowns through the air. He also accumulated 989 return yards as one of the team’s primary kick and punt returners.
Browns award likely came a result of his versatility rather than a singular ability or star power. He currently ranks second on the team in receptions and receiving yards behind wide out Mike Wallace, and teammates Ben Roethlisberger and Troy Polamalu are significantly better known.
The Steelers are currently 11-4 entering the final game of the season.
