AJ Brown to the Eagles after trade in the first round. Welcome to Philly A.J. Brown. The Tennessee Titans traded their elite wide receiver to the Eagles during the first round of the NFL draft. They had a pair of picks at the 15th and 18th. They moved a couple of spots and grabbed Jordan Davis the monstrous defensive tackle. The Titans received Philadelphia’s selections at Nos. 18 and 102 overall in the exchange for Brown.
AJ Brown Get Paid
Brown got paid in the move, too. The Eagles reached a four-year, $100 million extension with their new wide receiver, according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. That deal includes $57 million in guaranteed money. Brown, 24, had 869 receiving yards and five touchdowns last season, his third with the Titans. He played in 13 games last season due to a chest injury. He was set to enter the final year of his four-year, $5.6 million rookie deal this fall. Jalen Hurts should fly with Devonta Smith and now adding Brown.
Titans Replace Brown with Draft Pick
Tennessee didn’t waste any time replacing Brown. They used the 18th overall draft pick to take Arkansas wide receiver, Treylon Burks. Burks is coming off a career-best season with the Razorbacks where he tallied up 1,104 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns while helping them to a 9-4 record and an Outback Bowl win.
Burks is capable of being a top receiver for the Titans this fall, and he’s a much cheaper option for them instead of trying to reach an extension with Brown.
