NFL: Eagles receiver AJ Brown is at peace with his career in Tennessee

The game between the Titans and the Eagles will be shown on RDS2 and RDS.ca starting at 1 p.m. Sunday.

PRE-MATCH

PHILADELPHIA — AJ Brown just wanted to be paid his fair value.

And with good reason, he says. The Tennessee Titans selected Brown in the second round of the 2019 draft and he instantly became one of the NFL’s top receivers.

Brown hit the 1,000-yard plateau in each of his first two seasons and rushed for 869 yards in just 13 games in the third season.

Did he have any big performances with the Titans? Put it on.

Like his 10-reception, 155-yard game against the Indianapolis Colts in 2021. Or his five-catch game for 142 yards in the Titans’ loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in the NFL playoffs, also l last year.

By his performances, Brown had far exceeded the four million US dollars he would have pocketed during the last year of his rookie contract. Brown wanted an annual salary of $22 million and says the Titans offered him $16 million per season. The gap was enough for the receiver to end up on the trading market.

The contract wrangle was all the Philadelphia Eagles needed to intrude into the talks and they made a trade in the first round of the NFL Draft that immediately made Brown the team’s top receiver since. Terrell Owens.

The Eagles signed him to a four-year contract worth $100 million, of which $57 million is guaranteed. The other big win for Brown was joining his good friend quarterback Jalen Hurts.

Together, they guided the Eagles to an NFL-best 10-1 record heading into Sunday’s matchup against the Titans (7-4).

“Of course it means a lot, but I have to be professional about it,” Brown said.

Brown, however, is ready to make the Titans pay. Maybe not in the amount of money he wanted, but in adding a loss to their record.

“I came to peace with this situation,” Brown said. I am now with the Eagles and we are 10-1. We are doing very good work on the ground. Of course I will have mixed emotions at first. I changed my family’s life forever. That was the goal. I’m grateful to Tennessee, but I’m in Philadelphia now. »

Brown has already caught 53 balls for 831 yards and seven touchdowns with the Eagles and has two games over 155 yards this season. He caught three touchdown passes in a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, but he’s been fumbled the past two games and has only 113 yards in his last three games.

Brown has struggled with an ankle injury and a stomach condition that caused him to miss practice this week.

He is still on track to become the first Eagles receiver to amass at least 1,000 yards since Jeremy Maclin in 2014.

Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni insisted Brown is as good as expected.

“He just has that ability at the line of scrimmage and on runs for a man of that size. Simply the way he plays with this physical presence, ”he analyzed.

Brown has no regrets about leaving the Titans.

“Personally, I feel like I won,” he explained.
