Brown was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the second round of the 2005 NFL Draft.

In 2005, his rookie season, Brown was promoted to the starting spot of suspended wide receiver Terrell Owens. In his first start on November 6, 2005, Brown caught five passes for 94 yards and one touchdown against the Washington Redskins. In his second meeting against the division-rival Redskins, he caught two first half touchdowns. This impressive performance capped a promising year for the rookie. Brown led all rookies with 571 yards and was second with 43 receptions.

With the off-season departures of Owens and Todd Pinkston, Brown became the number-one wideout for the Eagles in 2006. He had nearly 18 yards per catch on 816 receiving yards and eight touchdowns for the year.

On November 9, 2006, Brown agreed to a 6-year contract extension with the Eagles. The deal, which locked him up through 2014, was worth up to $27 million, with $10 million in guarantees.

On December 16, 2007, during a game in Dallas against the rival Cowboys, Brown, after running to catch an overthrown pass, ran out of bounds and jumped in the giant Salvation Army bucket in Texas Stadium, saying he couldn't slow down in time to stop before it. He caught the lone touchdown in the Eagles 10-6 win that day. [2]

In the 2008 season, Brown was often injured and eventually lost his starting job to rookie DeSean Jackson. He also fell behind slot receiver Jason Avant and receiver Kevin Curtis on the depth chart. He was inactive in the NFC Championship Game loss at the Arizona Cardinals.

In the 2009 season, Brown produced only 9 catches for 155 yards and no touchdowns. He only started in one game (due to Jeremy Maclin being inactive with a leg injury), in which he caught only one pass for 7 yards. He was inactive for the first two games of the season, and completely fell behind Desean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin and Jason Avant as the team's fourth receiver.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

On March 8, 2010, Brown was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a sixth round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. [3] He was released on September 6, 2010.
