Titans receiver A.J. Brown heard it loudly from fans of the team, when his lack of a contract caused him to not show up for the start of offseason workouts. Now that he’s been traded, Brown has a message for the fans.

Or, more accurately, he had one. He has deleted it.

This was the message: “Tennessee I love you and you will forever be in my heart and I can say this now… THIS WAS NOT MY FAULT. But I wish you all the best.”

He has replaced it with something simpler. “I love y’all Tennessee,” he said.

Brown had every right to want to get paid. The Eagles were willing to do it, and to give up trade assets to get him. The Titans decided not to pay Brown big money, and to replace him with a rookie. It’s no one’s fault that the Titans made a business decision.

Brown made one, too. A very good one for him and his family.

  1. I guess there’s a difference between players who get paid and play for a winner and players who just want to get paid and could care less about winning.

  2. If people would only think before they press “send” the first time, they wouldn’t have to delete tweets.

  3. I’d rather have the WR from Arkansas for the next 4 years for 20 mil than AJ Brown for 100 mil………… Let’s play the tape forward and see what happens.

  4. Makes you wonder how all these big WR contracts are going to roll out the next couple years. Will the CAP grow enough to allow teams to have both a QB and a WR commanding $80M (total) per season?

    Right now I see teams with first contract QB’s being able to afford big $$$ to great WR1’s. But teams with elite QB’s on their 2nd+ contracts won’t be able to afford that kind of cash for WR1’s.

    This is just one more ign of how messed up the NFL salary system is. They need to SIGNIFICANTLY increase the CAP to allow teams to pay both. Or get creative and let every team to designate one player who’s salary will only count 50% against the CAP. Either way something needs to be done or we will continue to see teams dump excellent WR’s because teams can’t afford them and their QB too.

  5. This is why BB is so smart.

    You don’t have to worry about PAYING a superstar wide receiver when you never have one in the first place.

    Enjoy playing checkers Tennessee.

    What’s that sound you hear coming from Foxborough? Check. Mate.

  6. The Titans made the right choice. He’s a second-tier wide receiver who wants first tear money. There are so many good receivers coming into the league and just going to start being my running backs and a couple of years the demand is going to drop and salaries are going to drop

  7. These guys demanding money as tenured & established WRs are finding out- very quickly -that drafting the deep rookie classes are fiscally, a better way to go. They are more easily replaced, than franchise QBs.

  8. Brown had every right to want to get paid. The Eagles were willing to do it, and to give up trade assets to get him. The Titans decided not to pay Brown big money, and to replace him with a rookie. It’s no one’s fault that the Titans made a business decision.

    ——————–

    Teams are going to regret paying WRs like QBs. There are other people on the team who want to get paid as well and while GMs can massage the cap eventually it catches up to them.

  9. I just wanted to play football, it was my agent, and the Titans that made this messy. You can trust me bro. It wasnt my fault.

  10. We’re a couple of years away from finding out if WR salaries continue to rise or start to drop. 6 teams tried last night to find cheaper replacements. Depending on how that works out we’ll find out if the market keeps paying vets or just starts replacing them.

  11. Is not a top 5 receiver but demanded top 5 money. If money is your main motivation that’s cool, I don’t blame you, but don’t sit here and say it’s not your fault a deal didn’t get done. It’s solely your fault. Good luck in Philly with your new deal.

  12. IT’S NOT MY FAULT THAT I HAD TO HAVE MORE THAN 20 MIL A YEAR OR I WOULD GO TO ANY TEAM WHO WOULD PAY ME WHAT I WANT!!! I LOVE YOU, IT’S ALL THE TITAN’S FAULT!!!

    NE fans who think BB walks on water just kill me. BB’s reputation for being “smart” is a result of one stroke of pure luck. That being the 199th pick of the 2000 draft.
