Reggie Brown (born January 13, 1981 in Carrollton, Georgia) is an American football wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles of the NFL. He was selected with the third pick of the second round of the 2005 NFL Draft out of the University of Georgia.
Brown wears the number 86 and in 2005, was promoted to the spot of suspended wide receiver Terrell Owens. In his first start, Brown caught five passes for 94 yards and one touchdown against the Washington Redskins. For his efforts, voters on NFL.com voted him as the NFL Rookie of the Week for games played on November 6–7, 2005.
Brown had a very promising year for a rookie. He led all rookies with 571 yards and was second with 43 receptions. He was third with 4 touchdown catches. Brown gives hope to Philadelphia Eagles fans that their recent string of under-performing drafted wide-outs is over.
Brown has drawn several comparisons to Bengals WR Chad Johnson in terms of skill set, size, measureable attributes, and pedigree.
Brown was a Parade All-American wide receiver at Carrollton (Ga.) High School, while leading the Trojans to back-to-back state championship berths and a 1998 Georgia High School Association Class AA title. A three-sport athlete, Brown set a then Georgia high school record in 1998 in the long jump with an attempt of 24 feet, 9 inches. He was also a four year varsity letterman in basketball.
