Not only has receiver A.J. Brown been surprisingly traded to the Eagles on the first night of the 2022 NFL Draft, he’s now also agreed to a new contract with his new team.

Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the Eagles and Brown have agreed to a four-year, $100 million extension with $57 million guaranteed.

Just last week, Titans G.M. Jon Robinson said that he “didn’t foresee” trading Brown. But clearly, Tennessee was not willing to pay Brown as much as the Eagles.

Philadelphia quarterback Jalen Hurts now has DeVonta Smith and A.J. Brown as his top targets for 2022.

Brown caught 63 passes for 869 yards with five touchdowns in 13 games in 2021. He went over 1,000 yards in each of his first two seasons for the Titans.

  1. Too much to pay a wr……and it’s not the wr…it is the qb….and philly still needs a qb.

    All the Eagles need now is a QB. How does Howie have a job?

    ———————–

    Uh, maybe because he put together a Super Bowl team and fields a perennial playoff team?

  3. After the Lions plunked them by leapfrogging them for Williams, this was their fallback plan

  4. Total panic move…..got fleeced by the lions with the Williams pick….Howie responds by overpaying for a wr and trading draft capital…..not smart

  5. Howie had a good night. By the time Smith comes up, they’ll be at the end of this contract, and Hurts either sinks or swims with these resources next year while they have two first rounders to replace him. He’s a dummy, but he’s a smart dummy sometimes.

  6. Why do fans root for losing a draft pick and overpaying wildly due to pressure/desperation?

    Why is that a good thing?

    So weird.

  7. So he’ll be able to get maybe 600 yards receiving in this offense? That’s a lot to pay a disgruntled and young WR. Think he’ll come in and get 1000 yards and 10 TDs to equal his pay? Neither do I. He’s more than likely going to pack it in, get injured, and play 8 games with the vision for the “future”. Dude was trying to act like an accomplished player like Adams, Hill, and Diggs. He got the money and I have a feeling with that offense that’s all he’ll get. He’s just like Deebo. Playing the AB card with only a couple of years in the league. These are not #1 WRs, they are an outlier in desperate markets.

  8. Everyone saying it was a panic movie is dumb. This was planned out in advance. Trade happened to quick to not of been talked about prior.

  9. This isn’t “crazy” money, it’s the current market for a top 15 receiver. The eagles opted for someone proven in leu of an unknown. Based on their track record at drafting WR, this was the safest bet.
