The Titans traded A.J. Brown to the Eagles with the 18th overall choice, unwilling apparently to give him the four-year, $100 million extension that includes $57 million guaranteed that Philadelphia did give the star receiver.

Tennessee got a cheaper replacement with the first-rounder they obtained in the deal, selecting Arkansas receiver Treylon Burks.

In four seasons with the Hogs, Burks made 146 receptions for 2,399 yards with 18 touchdowns. He also had 13 drops.

He earned All-SEC honors last season and set the school record with six 100-yard receiving games. Burks made 66 catches for 1,104 yards and 11 touchdowns a year ago.

  1. Smart move, although a shock with Brown being traded. Trade him, get a pick back and get younger and cheaper.

  2. First round couldn’t have gone much worse for Green Bay. Looks like the round one streak without a WR will probably continue.

  3. The titans HOPE will replace the 24 year old two time 1000 yard receiver, sounds a bit more accurate, in my opinion.

  4. QB’s and especially Wideouts need to tread carefully as they price themselves out of jobs!Just look at the past few years at the QB position, Burrow, Lawrence,Allen, Herbert all join the league NFL ready and get paid peanuts compared to Aaron,Watson and company! Those ten,fifteen year careers are likely to become a thing of the past! WR’s, when draft pundits say “he compares to so and so but only on a bigger body, better and a true route runner” be afraid because you know that they are speaking about you!
