It's conjecture at this point but it appears the team will exercise Brown's fifth-year option at a cost of near $13M in 2023 but may not seek an extension. As pointed out in the linked article, the first-round selection has been productive but has fallen short of expectations including 16 dropped balls in three season. 2021 was Brown's first 1,000-yard (1,008) campaign though his touchdown total (6) was a career low. Brown will turn 25 in June, is healthy and will look to have a career year with Lamar Jackson fully healthy as well. He's listed as DLF's WR23.
