When you stand in front of the Buffalo Bills wide receiver, you look at James Walker as well. Walker's death nine years ago might have separated them physically, but the bond lives on. Besides the medallion, Brown wears three tattoos honoring Walker's m…

Through the first 11 games of 2018, the Buffalo Bills’ wide receiver was targeted 60 times and made 27 catches for 392 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
