Staten Island, NY -- Wagner College defensive back Jeremiah Brown (Brooklyn, NY/ Grand Street Campus) has been invited to participate in this weekend’s rookie mini-camp on a workout basis with the Jacksonville Jaguars while senior defensive end Quintin Anderson (Penfield, NY/ Milford Academy) will participate in the Tampa Bay Bucs’ rookie camp this weekend.
Brown will join former Seahawk teammate Julian Stanford (Bloomington, CT/ Bloomington) at the Jaguars’ camp as Stanford signed a free agent contract with Jacksonville last weekend.
“To have an opportunity to try out for an NFL team is a rare honor earned by very few athletes,” said Wagner College head coach Walt Hameline. “ And Jeremiah and Quintin have done just that, they’ve earned the opportunity to show these two franchises what they have to offer. “Just like with Julian (Stanford), Jeremiah and Quintin will receive their degrees from Wagner later this month. I couldn’t be prouder of them.”
In 2011, Brown finished third on the team in tackles with 72, including 41 solo stops, 6.5 tackles for loss for minus 28 yards, two sacks for minus 17 yards, five pass breakups, two forced fumbles, two recovered fumbles and one blocked kick. The 6-0, 190-pound Brown enjoyed a career-high 12-tackle game on September 10 at Richmond and had three eight-tackle performances as well.
Anderson began his career as on offensive lineman during the 2008 season before being switched to defensive end prior to the 2009 campaign. The 6-5, 280-pound Anderson quickly adapted to his new position, coming up with an interception in week three of the 2009 season at North Dakota St. He went on to record 44 tackles that season and finished his career with 50 stops, including 40 solo tackles and eight tackles for loss for minus 15 yards.
Anderson ended his career with a flourish, returning a recovered fumble at Robert Morris (11/12) and returning it 48 yards. The following week, in the final game of his career at Monmouth (11/19), Brown scooped up another fumble, returning this one 68 yards. Both fumble recoveries resulted in touchdown drives for the Seahawks.
