Bucs add Temple RB/KR Brown

Needing more play makers in the kick return game, the Bucs have signed former Temple RB/KR Matt Brown.

The 5-foot-5 Brown, who participated in the Bucs' rookie minicamp as a tryout player, was the Big East's all-purpose yards per game leader with 143.3. He finished his career with the second-most all-purpose yards (5,272) in the conference. He also was third in rushing touchdowns (22) and fourth in 100-yard games (10).

Brown led the Big East with 143.4 all-purpose yards per game. While he provide depth at the running back position, Brown's real value to the Bucs would be has a kick returner. He had 31 kickoff returns for 790 yards and a touchdown and 241 yards on 17 punt returns as a senior with the Owls.
