A.J. Brown sent from Titans to NFC East in major trade during NFL Draft
A.J. Brown is on his way from Nashville to Philadelphia.
The Tennessee Titans pulled off a major trade during the NFL Draft, sending Brown to the Philadelphia Eagles for the 18th overall pick and a 3rd round selection.
In 3 seasons, the former Ole Miss star has rapidly developed into one of the top wide receivers in the NFL. He began his career with back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons, while totaling 8 touchdowns as a rookie and 11 touchdowns in 2020. In 2021, he battled several injuries, playing in 13 games and recording 869 yards and 5 touchdowns.
The former 2-time All-SEC 1st team selection was headed into the final year of a 4-year rookie contract. With the former 2nd-round pick on the move to Philadelphia, he’ll join a receiving corps that already features DeVonta Smith.
The Eagles selected Georgia defensive lineman Jordan Davis with the 13th-overall pick earlier in the evening.
