"The best receiver right now is at home in Miami," Brown said. "If you guys follow the Patriots, tell them to call me. They still gotta pay me, so might as well let me earn it."

Brown posted six consecutive 1,200-yard seasons from 2013-18. His 75 receiving touchdowns are the second-most since entering the league in 2010.
