TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - As fast as John Brown is - and he is very fast - his route to the NFL was a slow, difficult one.
The Arizona Cardinals' third-round draft pick finally wound up at Pittsburg State, an NCAA Division II school in Kansas, where he had an electrifying career as a receiver and punt returner.
He had bounced around from Mars Hill College in North Carolina to Coffeyville Community College in Kansas, where he didn't make the active roster but still practiced with the team.
About that time, his older brother died of gunshot wounds, and Brown says that, for a minute, he thought about giving up the game.
But he decided to carry on, in Kansas, some 1,400 miles from those awful memories in Homestead, Florida.
