Seahawks Player to Watch No. 2 - CB Tre Brown
Tre Brown has done a terrific job of filling in for Riq Woolen and Coby Bryant this season. Brown has dealt with his share of injuries the past two seasons playing in just 11 games. When he has been healthy, Brown has played well at the cornerback position for the Seahawks' defense.
Brown was taken in the fourth round of the 2021 NFL Draft at 137th overall out of the University of Oklahoma. Despite the lack of opportunities to play due to injury in his first two seasons in the NFL, Brown has developed into a solid contributor to the Seahawks' defense.
Last week, Brown picked up his second interception of the season, intercepting Bengals' QB Joe Burrow. He also had a crucial pick-six of Jared Goff and a forced fumble back in Week 2 against the Lions which helped the Seahawks to a 37-31 victory. Brown clearly has had a knack for being a ball hawk in the Seahawks' secondary this season. Should Brown be able to stay healthy, he could be an important weapon for Seattle's defense for this season and years to come.
The Seahawks' secondary has continued to look better each week this season, and Tre Brown has been an integral part of their success. The Arizona Cardinals have decided to continue going with backup QB Joshua Dobbs this year. Dobbs has been up and down throughout 2023. Last week was one of Dobbs' worst games of the season as he completed just 21/41 passes, for 235 yards, and one interception. Tre Brown and the Seahawks' secondary should have no problem going up against Dobbs and will be looking to take advantage of his inexperience at QB.
