Wide receiver Jaron Brown is back with the Arizona Cardinals.

Brown spent his first five NFL seasons with Arizona, appearing in 71 games with 12 starts from 2013-17. He accumulated 1,177 yards and nine touchdowns during that span.

Much of his production with the Cardinals came in 2017, his final year in Arizona, when he averaged 15.4 yards per reception and finished the season with 477 yards and four touchdowns.

Over the last two seasons, he was with the NFC West rival Seattle Seahawks and hauled in 386 yards on 30 catches, including seven scores over his 30 games played. He was released last August.

Brown spent a week of training camp with the San Francisco 49ers this August before he was released.

Brown, who is 6-foot-3, went undrafted out of Clemson in 2013. The 30-year-old is the fourth receiver on the Arizona practice squad, joining A.J. Richardson, Andre Patton and JoJo Ward.

He joins a receiver room that also includes DeAndre Hopkins, Larry Fitzgerald, Christian Kirk, Andy Isabella, KeeSean Johnson and Trent Sherfield.

Kirk tweaked his groin and played through it in a Week 2 Arizona victory against Washington but on Wednesday did not participate in practice.
