Detroit Lions’ Amon-Ra St. Brown slyly digs at Dyami Brown for claiming he “didn’t see him on the field much” during Detroit’s win over Washington after the Commanders WR lined up for him
- St. Brown was taken in the fourth round, while Dyami Brown was taken in the 3rd
- The WR claimed he had seen ‘not much of’ Brown in the Lions’ 36-27 win
- St. Brown had 17 catches, 180 yards and three touchdowns against Washington
Detroit Lions breakout wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown has already attracted attention with his appearances to kick off the season, but the latest comments from the sophomore off the field could change a few more.
St. Brown has talked in the past about being the 17th wide receiver in the 2021 draft as motivation, and he took a moment to shade one of the receivers placed above him.
Dyami Brown was won in the third round by the Washington Commanders, while St. Brown in the fourth round was the 17th wide receiver selected in last year’s draft.

‘The design, it is what it is. Even the commanders have a man for me there. I believe his name is Dyami Brown,’ said St. Brown.
“I don’t know how many catches he had. Surely you can tell me that. Or how many meters he had, but I don’t forget things like that.’
Brown was taken with the 82nd overall pick, in the third round of the 2021 NFL draw after playing at the University of North Carolina. He recorded just 12 receptions for 165 yards during his rookie season.

This year, Brown appears to have slipped even further down the commander’s depth chart, as no signal was given in Washington’s first two games. By the way, he has barely seen the field, he only had four attacking shots on the field so far.
St. Brown on the other hand was not drafted until the Lions took him out with the 112th overall pick in the fourth round of the same draft.
Unlike his counterpart, St. Brown had a great rookie season, registering 90 receptions for 912 yards and five touchdowns. In the first two games of this season, he made 17 catches, 180 yards and three touchdowns.

Those early season numbers are on track to shatter his rookie totals and cement him as one of the better wide receivers in the NFL.
“I don’t forget things like that,” said St. Brown. “I see him on the other side of the sidelines from where I’m standing during the game, and I’m going to scare every team.”
In response to a final question on the subject, St. Brown said, “I haven’t seen him on the field much,” with a grin on his face clearly visible.
